Amp Overdrive Energy Drink Review

Friday, November 6th, 2009

Amp Overdrive Energy Drink Review – easy to drink and enjoy, if you’re an energy drink veteran.

Like the original Amp, Overdrive has a good blend of energy ingredients.

It’s worth a try, but we’ve found that there are many energy drinks at the local gas station that are more enjoyable to drink.

This drink is over-carbonated and the aftertaste would be nearly gag-worthy for someone new to energy drinks. I do prefer the slightly sweeter taste of Overdrive to the original Amp.

If you’re a big fan of the Mountain Dew line, you should adapt to the new flavors just fine.

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.
