These canned drinks taste quite similar! A little bit thicker in texture than the one you would get from Starbucks.
The coffee flavor in masked pretty heavily by chocolate and cream. I was afraid that it would have a weird off flavor because of how they emphasized "energy". I thought the vitamins and stuff might add a bad undertaste or chalky overtones or something.
Overall, I would say these taste just slightly worse than a well-made barista version, but it has the pros of costing less than half what the barista version would, being available in your fridge, not being at the mercy of overworked minimum wage employees, and it is also quite a bit more nutritious.
Cheaper than going to Starbucks, but still not very frugal buying these, although it is much more consistent and faster - I'd much rather buy these in bulk and drink one before work, than make a habit of visiting Starbucks. Recommended.
A useful tool to have on hand if you need to get something done fast, like say, sprint a hundred miles in twenty minutes. Docked it one star for taste because there is a chemical note - possibly the caffeine - that is not well masked by the flavoring. One caution: when it hits, your eyelids will snap open with the sound of a rifle shot; could alarm your neighbors.
The price is excellent compared to regular stores and the taste is great as usual. However, I thought the flavor Vanilla will help with my acid flux. I guess I thought wrong; Caffeine must be the culprit not the coloring. Anyway. I would recommend this product to caffeine/coffee lovers. No problem with packaging and no damage. Will purchase again.
