Nitro2Go II Energy Drink

Cost: $2.00 for 16 oz.

Rating: 6 out of 10
We were optimistic before reviewing Nitro2Go II that it would be better than their Firepower Extreme energy drink. Unfortunately, our optimism was not rewarded.
The flavor of the drink is tangy citrus and very sweet, much sweeter than most other energy drinks we've tasted. Immediately after the sweet profile, we experienced a sharp, bitter/metallic bite. The aftertaste is quite unappealing and lingers for what seems to be a long time.
We found the can rather curious. One side featured the requisite visual "energy" effects emanating from behind the logo. However, the other side of the can showed a slightly different, vertical logo. We were not certain why the separate approaches, yet there they were. The fact that this energy drink is Made in the USA is prominently featured as are the directions "Recycle Or Die".... weird.
We were not impressed with the rise in energy, if any at all, that came with this beverage. We were hoping that the boost in energy would compensate for the bad taste, but we've been disappointed before.
