BooKoo Energy Drink Review
24 ounces? No freakin way did I just see a 24 ounce BooKoo Energy drink? Sure enough at the local 7-11 there sits a gigantic can. I thought to myself, how the hell am I going to finish 24 ounces. That and it better taste good or I am going to be pissed off that I would have to waste this much of an energy beverage. Well for
$2.50 lets see how the BooKoo energy drink does in the taste and kick tests.
BooKoo Energy Drink Review: Taste
What do you know, another citrus based drink. Well at least this one tastes like a supped up version of sprite with a medicinal after taste. Originally the drink tasted fine, but have you ever tried to finish two cans of sprite? Well after 16 ounces of the BooKoo energy drink I had enough. It is not that it didn't taste good; it’s that that is a lot of drink to finish. On the bright side of things, if you want to throw a party and cheap out, instead of buying Red Bull and having Jager-Bombs you could have BK bombs. You get three times as much energy drink for $0.50 more than a Red Bull Energy Drink. Taste rating for BooKoo energy beverage: 7.5. It is not bad it is just that 24 ounces can be a little overwhelming.
BooKoo Energy Drink Review: Kick
If you finish the drink you will have inhaled 120 milligrams of caffeine per serving (360 milligrams total). Compare that to a single serving of the 180 Energy which gives you a little over 90 milligrams of caffeine and it is quite substantial. Now put into the equation that the 180 energy is only 8.2 ounces and the story changes. I did get a good kick from the 16 ounces of BooKoo that I drank and I am sure that I would have got an even better kick if I would have finished the whole thing. I am one for value, but I am not sure that I like the fact that I have to drink so much of the BooKoo drink to get my caffeine kick. Overall I will give the kick rating a nice 8.5.
BooKoo Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
24 ounces is a first, the price is not too steep and the taste is doable. The kick is also pretty nice, but the only bad thing is that it takes sports out of the equation because if you slam the whole thing you will have gut rot. On the plus side of 24 ounces you do get a cheap way to do Jager-Bombs! Final judgment 8.5 for
being the first to 24 ounces: now lets see who makes it to 32 ounces first.
