Mixergy

May 14th, 2022

You’ll be unlikely to find this particular energy drink anywhere… at least not in the form that it’s being presented here. This was a promotional can handed out at the Fully Charged Live event in 2002 at Farnborough. Mixergy make smart hot water tanks and control systems, and the can with the wrapper is designed to represent one of their tanks and the controls attached to it. As products go, their tanks are interesting even if I’m not certain I’d get one myself. The energy drink is unbranded though, and I’m guessing must be a generic product used by marketing companies for personalised products. I’ve taken a guess at the caffeine content because it’s not listed on the label at all. It tastes like a clone, a nice and sweet one though, and plenty one sugar in it because it coats the inside of your mouth!

Furocity Tyson Fury Sour Apple Punch

May 7th, 2022

I’m not a fan of apple-flavoured drinks as regular readers will be aware. And I’m also not going to tell Mr Fury to his face that I didn’t like this drink much, so can someone else please pass on that message so as I can keep my face as it is?? It’s appley, but not very sour, and the apple flavour itself is more like a mild watered down synthetic flavouring rather than a stronger apple squash flavour. You might like it, I didn’t really think much of it.

Monster Ultra Watermelon

April 30th, 2022

Not my favourite Monster Ultra flavour, but it’s smooth as always in-line with the Monster brand. The watermelon flavour is not too strong, quite sweet, and really needs to be drunk straight from the freezer. If you let it warm up, it’s really not as enjoyable. I could only find this drink in a multipack of 4 at Tesco, which was quite a lot to get through.

Warrior – Berry Burst

April 23rd, 2022

Sadly this is just a bog-standard cheap tasting berry drink much like a lot of the supermarket own-brand ones. If you’re going to go with Warrior, choose the Original or Citrus flavours, those are by far the most original and tasty variants.

Furocity Tyson Fury Black & Blue Raspberry

April 16th, 2022

This was my favourite of the four Furocity flavours. If the weather had been warmer, I’d have enjoyed it even more – it’s blue raspberry freeze-pops in a can 🙂 Very sweet and full of nostalgia, but not too sickly meaning you can easily drink a large can far too quickly.

Warrior – Fizzy Apple

April 9th, 2022

Yeah I know I’m not a fan of apple-flavoured drinks, but I put myself through this punishment just for you, dear readers. Not, I didn’t like it. It was sharp and left a bad aftertaste in my mouth just as I’d feared. Very artificial tasting and quite sickly to get through, I’d give this particular Warrior flavour a miss and go with one of the others which are considerably better.

Furocity Tyson Fury Sour Cherry Knockout

April 2nd, 2022

Yup, it’s cherry, but it’s not very sour. I think that because of that, it’s reasonably refreshing to drink. Not too sickly, not too sweet, but an okay artificial cherry flavouring.

Lucozade Alert Original

March 12th, 2022

Full marks for original, because like its name says it really is original for an energy drink of this type. There is a glucosey sort of taste to it much like normal Lucozade Original, only instead of the sharp watered down flavour of that drink, what you get is a much more concentrated flavour. It’s very sweet, but contains sweeteners to reduce the total sugar content, and the smell is definitely  reminiscent of Lucozade Original. All in, a nice energy drink, but could have done with being half the portion size because 500ml is very sickly to get through!

Monster Ultra Gold

February 26th, 2022

Pineapple… that’s what Monster decided would be the best flavour to fill its first-place-metal-coloured can. I’m not certain it was the best choice personally, but it’s not a bad flavour. Yes, you can tell it’s pineapple, and it’s not sharp or overpowering. It’s a very smooth tasting tropical-ish drink and very easy going, I just wish they’d gone for something more original for a gold edition.
