Twisted Chopper Energy Drink Review

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Twisted Chopper Energy Drink Review: from the team that brought you the Wired drinks, this can features a skull on the front. So it’s gotta be a pretty tough drink, right?

Twisted Chopper has decent caffeine kick. Interestingly, this is the same drink – at least according to the ingredient listing – as Wired x5000 Taurine.

The drink is a generic citrus energy drink flavor.

Twisted Chopper was a pretty disappointing drink.

I’m not sure what I was expecting, based on the name, and the skull (with horns) on the can. I think I anticipated something a little more dangerous or something. But this drink was incredibly boring.

If you’re in a motorcycle gang, you now have an energy drink to go with your leather jacket. That’s about as extensive of a niche market as Unique Beverage Company (misnomer in this case?) has reached with this drink.

Stick to the Wired drinks, guys.

Full Throttle Fury Energy Drink Review

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

From the Full Throttle line of energy drinks, this is the cherry-flavored Fury.

The boost is nothing unique, a good three to four hours feeling more alert, for me.

This is the cherry-flavored version of Coca Cola’s Full Throttle drink. The first sip is pretty good – just the slight energy drink aftertaste you almost take for granted.

After a couple more chugs, I realized this drink is sweeter than a Hallmark ad with little teddy bears, and it gets old really fast. My mouth and tongue are buzzing with the sweetness before I’m half way through the can.

If you like overkill on cherry flavoring, then this is the caffeine-injected, cherry kool-aid drink of your dreams.  As much as I appreciate the original Full Throttle, it’s Fury-ous cousin is way too sweet for its own good.

Full Throttle Nature Is One Bad Mother

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Energy Drink Review of: Full Throttle Nature Is One Bad Mother.  Really, Coca-Cola? Did anyone try this one before it made it out the door and into production?

Modest caffeine content in this drink.

If we gave negative numbers on our ratings scale, this would rank way below zero. It tastes like a bitter root mixture of chocolate licorice and fake blueberries. Must be the ACAI ingredient? Absolutely disgusting.

This is the worst drink I have ever tasted in my entire life.
