Red Bull is an energy drink product of an Austrian company of the same name, it is notable for its slogan and advertising campaigns based around the idea that “Red Bull gives you wings”. Today I’ll be reviewing two flavour variants to the original or classic Red Bull product.
Unlike other drinks I’ve reviewed here such as the Irn Bru Energy or Coca Cola Energy, this Red Bull variant doesn’t taste like Red Bull upfront, which isn’t a negative, just a point I wanted to bring out. It’s also very refreshing, and doesn’t overpower you, it’s a nice smooth drink that makes good use of the tropical flavouring, and is packed full of that caffeine that I so crave. It’s very light, which combined with the flavour is very appealing.
Coconut & Berry
I thoroughly enjoyed a product by Rockstar called Freeze Pineapple and Coconut, and since it was discontinued I’ve been on the lookout for a similar product, and while this one tastes more distinctly of coconut, it’s a respectable substitute as well as being a fine beverage in its own right. Equally refreshing, and very interesting flavour wise.
So upfront you get an almost tartness which is quite pleasing, and following that you get the familiar watermelon flavour that washes over you. It’s very smooth and refreshing, and it doesn’t hit the palate too hard. I will say that I tend to like energy drinks with a little bit of a bite, it makes it feel like the caffeine is working, you can read more about that in my reviews of Tenzing and WOW Focus.
