It’s a massive tropical drink and is so much nicer than its plain ‘Battery’ companion. It’s still just a generic drink though with not much going for it. If it had been purchased in the UK it’d probably have cost about 99p max, but as it came from Norway it was closer to £3.
Sadly this is just a massive can of generic tasting energy drink. It’s sweet and slightly bitter, and quite difficult to finish because of that. Gives you a big sugar punch but that’s all.
Finally, a sugar-free Lucozade! Problem is, Lucozade isn’t known for having much caffeine in, so if you remove the sugar too then there’s neither fake nor real energy in this. It’s just fizzy orange. A nice fizzy orange, but that’s all. Zero kick. So far as energy drinks go, no energy is quite original.
Take a berry drink and mix it with a tropical drink and you end up with this. It’s an odd blend but somehow works. A large can and full of sugar but nice to drink.
The can design is one of the boldest on the shelves and certainly doesn’t put you in mind for the flavour it contains. Passion Punch is mostly tropical, but on the sweet and smooth side of your taste buds. As usual, a 500ml can full of sugar is hard going (think fluffy teeth after drinking this!) but it’s not too sickly.
Apparently this is one of the longest running brands of soft drink in the USA. It tastes like a slightly fruity cream soda, and it’s bright red in colour. At 38mg per can of caffeine it’s not that potent (about the same as Mountain Dew). I’m not sure if the original recipe had caffeine in, but it sure does now and it tastes goooood.
Nope, it doesn’t taste like gravy and it isn’t thick and brown. It’s just a cheapo tasting clone with a bitter tang to it. Drinkable, but quite definitely budget.
I guess that mint flavoured drinks are pretty original. I’ve tasted the Black Mojito before and it’s not too dissimilar. Yup, it’s just wrong! It’s lower in caffeine levels than most drinks (21mg/100ml) but that’s assuming you even get that far through the drink without gagging. Mint? In a soft drink? Weird.
Relentless energy drinks have had a bit of a design overhaul recently. Gone is the gothic-style line art graphics on the can, and in are loud and bold colours. With that rebranding has come the new Relentless Zero, which is effectively a renamed version of their awkwardly named Relentless Origin Ultra (maybe because it’s easier to understand a ‘zero’ drink will be low calories instead of the wholly non-descriptive ‘ultra’ moniker they used previously. The drink is the same as before so far as I can tell – slightly watery but no strange brewed taste.
