My favorite energy drink
on February 2, 2016
Delicious. I notice some people are angry because it has a little sucralose in it along with cane sugar. That's their complaint, I honestly like that it tastes great with less calories than a normal energy drink.
I've tried all flavors. I am probably, sadly, an energy drink connoisseur, having tried all kinds in convenience stores and then most of what amazon offers. Bing is by far the best tasting with a good energy kick, while having only ~40 calories a can. The tartness of the cherry juice hides the caffeine and sucralose flavors.
If you haven't tried the flavors, here's my breakdown:
Original Cherry: the best all around. Sweet and tart at once. Tastes like cherries, but not syrupy sweet cherries. Probably my favorite.
Raspberry: close 2nd, it's the sweetest with the least tart flavor to it. The raspberry flavor is mild, it has a touch of tart with the sweet.
Blackberry (or Black as it's called): Tart and tastes like blackberries. Drink it ice cold and it's amazing. If it warms up, the tartness will make you pucker a bit. Least sweet of them all, but the flavor is distinctly berry.
Crisp (Apple): While being my lowest pick out of the flavors, it doesn't mean it's bad. It tastes like a mildly tart green apple. It's definitely apple-ly. Very distinct taste and scent, I do like it, just not as much as the other flavors. I spilled a whole one on my boss, who commented that the apple smell it gave him the rest of the day was probably an improvement over his cologne.
For how good the ingredients are, in general, I'm surprised they are as well-priced as they are. I just got my raspberry drinks in the mail a minute ago and it reminded me to come write this. They are delicious. Sweet and tart at the same time, that would sum up the drink in general, with flavors that provide gradients.
(P.S. the cans are not abnormally thin skinned, but don't go hacking at the packing with a sharp knife. Punctured a can and sprayed raspberry everywhere. Smells nice, though. My eyes sting a little, but they feel very "energized".)
