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".)

I bought the "Cherry Flavor" because I was like, how can you go wrong with cherry!?
Good judgement call on my part!

The taste is not EXACTLY like cherry, but its close. Like the flavor is pretty good. I've tasted a lot worse "cherry flavor".

I normally don't drink "pop" BUT I will give an energy drink a shot, because people have their coffee, I got my energy drinks.
RedBull Yellow is my thing, but its not always available to me, so its good to have a back up.
Thus that's where this product comes into play. I bought it on whim, well amazon recommended it. Had pretty good customer reviews. Figured it was worth the risk, since those are "verified purchases"

SO how does it stack up at least in the caffeine dept.?

12 FL Oz it has 120mg of Caffeine, Calories is 40

RedBull Yellow at 8.4 fluid OZ
80 mg of caffeine, and 120 Calories

Bawls Guarana Cherry 10 FL OZ
64mg of Caffeine, 120 Calories

Now, am I satisfied with my purchase? yes, will I buy this again? yes, possibly. I'm in a somewhat exploratory stage, so if I find something else that's better, I'd obviously give it a shot.

The only down side to this product is it comes in an aluminum can, if they could do like "Bawls" and come in a glass bottle, and get the shipping right, like bawls does, they'd have a truly winning product. Because truth of the matter, normally anything that comes in glass always seems to taste better. I'm not sure why that's the case. But I love snapple.. and the tea taste so much different, as in better, vs their plastic bottle counterparts.

This is both a health drink and energy drink but with low calories! I am a cold drink person that drank diet drinks daily for many years---then I discovered the BING line of drinks. The are just awesome tasting, are healthy and have improved both my sleep and urinary night time issues.
I keep a couple of cases stashed away in case of bad weather, etc. It is a great replacement drink in my life and vastly better for me. The Cherry and Raspberry are my favorites. Some stores have these in the health food section, some in the fruit section and others stock it in the soda section.
Ask a clerk were they have BING.

Great pick me up - better than coffee!
There is caffeine but it's not a quick lift just to have you crash hard.
You feel energized not pumped to shaking point. And the release of that energy is subtle.
Highly recommend this drink for energy - simple and true.!!!

If you don't drink Bing, I highly recommend it. Not the harsh chemical flavor of Red Bull or the overly sweet Monster, very low calorie (40 in a can!) and a nice subtly sweet cherry flavor with what seems to be a nitrogenated fizz (vs a carbonated). I love this. I was so happy to find that I could get a 24 pack regularly delivered to my house!!! Thanks for carrying this, Amazon!

great cherry flavor, wish it was 8 ounces, but hubby likes the 12.

we love the original flavor but not the Blackberry, so,,, when Amazon sent the Blackberry instead of the original, we were very disappointed. We are keeping it, only because to send it back is such a pain. If Amazon is out of the original, I would rather they let me know they are instead of substituting another flavor. It seems to me that there might have been an over abundance of the Blackberry and they decided to substitute! Just be aware!

I already posted a review for Bing Cherry. Bing Black is my favorite flavor. While the original Cherry got me hooked, the Black keeps me coming back. Although it's an effective energy drink, it doesn't taste like an energy drink. It tastes like a delicious blackberry soda.

Bing is the best energy drink in my opinion! It has a delicious bing cherry flavor that comes from the bing cherry juice as one of it's ingredients. It contains all the great components we want in our energy drinks, caffeine, guarana, taurine, ginseng, acai berry, flax seed extract, B vitamins, vitamin C and Gingko Biloba. It is sweetened with a small amount of pure cane sugar, just 10g carbs, and is just 12 ounces so it is ideal for weight loss surgery patients who have no room for the 16-20 ounce competitors. The best attribute of Bing is it's calorie count … only 40 calories! Bing also makes a great cocktail mixer with vodka, gin or tequila. I add an ounce or two to vodka and soda with a big squeeze of fresh lime. This product is on my Subscribe and Save account so a case shows up automatically every other month, my chosen schedule, the super value of Amazon's pricing further discounted by 15% because I have six items delivered each month.
