Red Jak Energy Drink Review
Just ran into a gas station to pick me up a little pick me up. I was a little short on cash so I went with the Red Jak Energy Drink because it was only $1.50. Yeah, I know what you are thinking, you paid $1.50 for an energy beverage that is 16 ounces. Are you out of your mind. Well I might be but I needed a little pick me
up and I could use the extra cash at the bar. I could get a half a game of pool in! Well enough background and onto the Red Jak Energy drink review.
Red Jak Drink Review: Taste
Alright the can was quite unique as it was black with a splash of red that kind of looked liked the Budweiser crown. I opened it up and it smelled vaguely like apples. I am not the biggest fan of apples, but you know an apple a day keeps the doctor away. It is somewhat fruity but you can definitely taste the medicinal energy taste and it is a little sour. It actually has somewhat of a strong bite to it that the sour flavor brings out. It is actually reminiscent of the Tab Energy Drink that I reviewed a couple of days ago. It is fruity, a little sweet but has kind of a sour aftertaste to it brought on by the energy ingredients. Well I will give the Red Jak Energy Drink review for taste a mediocre 7 as it is nothing special.
Red Jak Energy Drink Review: Kick
I was hoping the kick would make up for the mediocre flavor but turns out that the kick is rather disappointing as well. I thought the kick hit me right away but it turns out it was just the sour after taste. The total kick lasted about 2 hours, which is far from par. There was no crash at the end of the kick, but yet again
there was not much of a kick at all. The Red Jak Energy Drink review for kick will get a less than mediocre 6.
Red Jak Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Alright all you assholes that were laughing at me when I reached into the bargain bin for an energy beverage were right. This drink did not taste that great nor did it give the desired kick that I was looking for.
However not all bargain bin drinks are bad. Check out the Hype Energy Drink, it only costs $1.50 and it was really good. That being said I will give a final judgment on Red Jak of 6.5.
