OSO Energy Drink
Cost: Approx $1.99, 8.3 oz
Active ingredients: Taurine, Caffeine, Glucuronolactone
Rating: 6.5 out of 10
OSO energy seems to be going for the "too cool for Red Bull" crowd - it's got a cool name and can, but basically seems to be a slight variation on the Red Bull experience.
OSO has a good flavor - light, fruity, with a clean finish and no aftertaste. It's similar to Red Bull, but I'd say slightly better, since it tastes less mediciney. Another cool thing is that the drink is actually clear, unlike some other energy drinks like Red Bull that look more or less like carbonated urine. OSO is so clear, you can fool your friends into thinking you're just drinking Sprite. But their minds will be blown when you get a rush of energy.
As far as ingredients, it's pretty similar to Red Bull, so expect the same amount of energy out of it. It'll definitely pump you up, but nothing too extraordinary here.
All in all, OSO is like Crystal Red Bull: clear, similar taste, but a little fancier. If you're happy with Red Bull, I see no reason to pay more for a very similar drink. But if you're looking for something a little different and smoother, it might be worth giving OSO a try.
