Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)
Taste: 6 – A little too sweet for my finely honed palate. The can prominently reads “CONTAINS NO FRUIT JUICE”; however, the can full of chemicals tastes distinctly like kiwi/strawberry.
After Taste: 4 – There is a bit of residual syrup like taste in the back of the mouth but, overall, its not too bad
Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)
Energy Boost: 7 – Above average for a 16oz energy drink. For weeks I have simply passed over buying this concoction because, well, it looked cheap. You know, similar the “not quite Nike” high-tops you see for sale at K-Mart and Wal-Mart; they serve their intended purpose but you don’t really want your friends to see them. I looked around the store and confirmed I was alone when I grabbed the can. Although no one but the cashier saw me buy it, I could swear I heard him laughing at me as I left the store
Side Effects/Crash: 2 – None.
