Alright another energy drink that tastes different than redbull, unfortunately it tastes like blue cotton candy that has been covered in a sugar coating. Seriously this is far to sweet. No one really wanted to finish it, cause it was so sweet that after awhile it just got to you. The blue cotton candy flavor was truly the defining taste of this drink. As for how pumped up it got me, well it was pretty good, but not better than average... just a little jolt but nothing to get to excited about. So while i was having circus flash backs from my extended sugar high, I began to wonder why so many energy drinks make the mistake of over sweetening. I know that most anything containing caffeine gets a little bitter, but many drinks are just far to sweet, that might be the largest complain I hear from people about energy drinks, that they are all just far to sweet. The other most common complaint being that they taste like vitamins or medicine. Anyways this was very lightly carbonated and didn't hide the alcohol so well because of the soft flavor... It was like mixing vodka with sugar water, so this drink in general should be avoided, unless you really like your sweets sweet.
