NOCCO Focus Ramonade

April 13th, 2024

I had to look up what Ramonade might be. Turns out the Ram part is rambutan which is a type of tropical fruit, but the main flavour I could taste was apple. It’s basically an extremely caffeine-potent apple flavoured energy drink. I’m always nervous about trying a can of Nocco because I know I’m not going to sleep well that night! But, if you need an extremely strong pick-up then this’ll do the trick.

Kong Strong Colossus

April 6th, 2024

It’s been so long since I tried Lidl’s Kong Strong so I honestly can’t tell if this large can ‘Colossus’ drink is actually the same as the the smaller can, I think I’ll have to go and get one of those to compare. Anyway, this drink reminds me of the early days of energy drink clones… it’s sweet, slightly tangy, and quite different to Red Bull. I’d say it’s quite close to Monster Energy actually, very, very close in flavour!

Bang: Candy Apple Crisp

March 23rd, 2024

I’m still not that keen on apple-flavoured drinks. I guess this one isn’t too bad, but it is quite sickly after a while. It’s basically fizzy apple squash, I’m not sure what the ‘candy’ part is, perhaps that’s just marketing. On the other hand, it’s pretty potent for caffeine so it’ll definitely wake you up!

Bang: Rainbow Unicorn

March 16th, 2024

The fragrant taste of the world’s finest juiced unicorns combined with a spectral blast of rainbows. Maybe. Well, there’s no actual clue on the can as to what flavour this drink really is so I’m going to have to make a guess. I think that it’s strawberry, but with a twist of vanilla. Please contact me if you know differently!

Raptor Orange Mango

February 10th, 2024

Well, it’s not so much orange as mango, or tropical really. It’s a large can of tropical energy drink. Quite smooth and refreshing but other than the funky dinosaur can design there isn’t much that make this drink stand out.

Vimto Energy Zero

January 13th, 2024

Exactly the same as the regular full fat Vimto Energy only low in calories. Honestly, I couldn’t tell the difference, there was no strange aftertaste or ‘chewyness’ that you get sometimes with the sugar free variants. If you have the choice then you might as well go for this zero version.

Raptor Citrus

January 6th, 2024

I love lemon energy drinks, and this one despite being generically named ‘citrus’ is pretty lemony. It’s refreshing and smooth, really nice. It has just the right balance of sweetness and sharpness and is low calorie too.

Rockstar Refresh Watermelon Kiwi

December 30th, 2023

As drinks go, this is quite a smooth but generally bland energy drink. It’s refreshing and inoffensive but it just doesn’t stand out. The most unusual thing about the drink is the colouring of the can. The pink inside the Rockstar star actually looks like someone left the can out in the sun and bleached a red star to pink.

Raptor Tropical Cherry

December 23rd, 2023

So this is what it tastes like when you mix a tropical drink with a cherry one. Tropical cherry. It’s certainly unique that’s for sure. I’m not sure if I actually like it or not, I mean, I don’t hate it, it’s just an assault on the senses is all, not what I’m expecting on my taste buds! You have the tartness from the tropical, plus the sherbettyness (new word, officially) from the artificial cherry flavouring. The name Raptor I’m assuming is referring to the Velociraptor dinosaur and not the birds of prey… and I’m basing that off the picture on the can!
