Red Bull Energy Drink Review

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Energy Drink Review of Red Bull: The classic, and arguably, the original of the huge energy drink market. Has it been out-classed by its students?

Red Bull is a sufficient source of energy for your workday. But if you’re needing a big kick after a night of partying, it may not be enough to do the trick.

While the flavor is enjoyable, it’s an acquired taste. If you’re new to energy drinks, you may want to start with a Tab Energy drink.

Many consider Red Bull to be the original energy drink. It has become enormously popular all around the world, not only by itself, but also as an ingredient in mixed alcoholic beverages.

Even though the ad campaign running presently ranks almost as low as Dairy Queen’s television commercials, Red Bull is built to last. It packs energy in a little can, and tastes pretty good. At the same time, don’t get stuck in a rut. There are some great drinks on the market now that you need to try! Stay tuned for lots of suggestions here.

Amp Energy Drink Review

Friday, November 14th, 2008

Energy Drink Review of Amp: What happens what you take Mt. Dew, and crank up the power a few notches?

As far as energy, this is a powerhouse drink, and those sensitive to caffeine may get jittery after consuming it.

Amp has the familiar Mountain Dew flavor tainted slightly with the addition of power ingredients. This results in less sugary-sweetness and more sourness-bitterness.

Overall, Amp is a decent drink, rating average on taste but living up to it’s name with energy.

Full Throttle Energy Drink Review

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Energy Drink Review of Full Throttle: Is it selling out to want what Coke’s selling?

The “power” ingredients are included in moderation, so it doesn’t leave me feeling really wired, but it’s still more than a Mountain Dew.

It’s a classic energy drink taste – citrus with a bit of an aftertaste.

I want to call this drink a lame effort from Coca Cola to join the edgy brands profiting from the energy drink craze. I want to, but Full Throttle is too easy to drink, and it has the right ingredients to provide a reliable boost. Bottom line – nothing exciting here, but it wouldn’t be a waste of your money to try it.
