Tab Energy Drink Review
After having a rather rough weekend I needed an drink to get me going. At the local BP I noticed that there was a Tab Energy drink. I thought to myself that there is no way possible that Coca-Cola came back with this old school diet beverage in energy drink format. Sure enough the Tab Energy drink was mad by Coca-Cola and had
only 5 calories per serving. Keeping my girlish figure in mind, I decided to purchase this drink. Here is what I think of the Tab Energy drink.
Tab Energy Drink Review: Taste
This drink has a sweet and sour taste to it. You can tell they tried to add some type of watermelon flavor to it but it ends up being overwhelmed by the ingredients that give you the energy leaving a slightly sour aftertaste. It was rather pleasing to drink and it comes in a 10.5 ounce can, which is fairly unique for this market. I had no trouble finishing this drink and was actually left wanting more. I will give the Tab Energy beverage review for taste a above average 8.5.
Tab Energy Drink Review: Kick
The original Tab had about 30 milligrams of caffeine whereas Tab has three times that amount (95 milligrams). I figured that combining all this excessive caffeine with the other energy ingredients of taurine, ginseng, and Guarana would give me a pretty decent kick and I was not mistaken. This 10.5 ounce caffeine filled drink gave me a really good kick that lasted for a couple hours; it even kept me awake during Economics! I will give the Tab energy beverage review for kick another above average 8.5.
Tab Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
By bringing back the old school Tab diet cola brand, Coca-Cola has scored a winning combination of taste and kick for their new energy beverage. It looks like they are mainly marketing this drink towards women because they are really emphasizing the low calorie aspect. However, men don't need to shy away from this drink, but if you are not quite comfortable with drinking the same beverage as your sister you could always try the Vault Energy Drink by Coca-Cola as well. Final judgment: 8.0. It could be a little cheaper!
