Relentless Passion Punch

July 2nd, 2016

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.

Big Red

June 25th, 2016

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.

Rockstar Freeze Pineapple and Coconut

June 11th, 2016

I thought this was going to be pretty awful, but it wasn’t quite as bad as I had suspected! The pineapple flavour is subtle, as is the coconut. They’re both there and you can distinctly taste them, but there’s a cool refreshing and sweet drink to be had here. A large can makes it quite sickly, but that might be due to the high sugar content. It’s certainly worth trying once and full marks for originality.

Oxxo Elder-Mint

June 4th, 2016

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-Zero

Relentless Zero

May 28th, 2016

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.

Rockstar Pure Zero Guava

May 21st, 2016

A fruity and almost tropical tasting drink with zero* (read that as 4kcal/100ml) calories. It’s nice but pretty sickly even when straight out of the fridge. At the time of writing this, Rockstar Energy still haven’t acknowledged any of their Pure Zero products on their UK web site, but if you look at the international US version you can get a taste of other flavours they may be releasing under this label.

It’s fake Lucozade! Not orange flavoured, but a generic mix of lemonylimeyoraneycitrussy stuff. Nice, but very high in sugar/calories as you’d expect from this type of beverage.

Emerge – Juicy Berry

May 7th, 2016

Yeah I’m pretty sure that Emerge re-brand every week. I can’t keep up with their ‘Dual’ or not ‘Dual’ or whatever branding, and now it appears they have taken their berry flavour and just called it Juicy Berry. I don’t think this is a new drink, but it’s got a new name.
