Cocaine Energy Drink Review:
Well I brought you the news last month about the highly controversial Cocaine Energy Drink from Redux Beverages. You can still only buy the cocaine energy drink in major metropolitan areas like Los Angeles and New York. Redux Beverages still does not offer the drink on their website. So where can you buy this beverage you might ask? E-Bay! That’s right for as little as $3.50 per can, sometimes less, sometimes way more, you can buy the liquid cocaine energy drink! So I did just that and here is what I think of it.
Cocaine Energy Drink Review: Taste
Too bad we have to start out with the taste review because I had high expectations for this drink. Unfortunately my expectations were not met as the beverage was less than stellar. The pink, and somewhat fruity drink has a very distinct taste that is hard to describe. Some comments by readers on my Previous Post on the Cocaine Beverage seem to think that it tastes like battery acid. Well I would not quite go that far, but there is a strong medicinal after taste (it actually starts the moment you start drinking) that really kills the fruity flavor. This might be the throat numbing sensation that Redux Beverages is talking about. This is not one of the better tasting drinks on the market. Gets a below average rating of 6.5.
Cocaine Energy Drink Review: Kick
Again I had really high expectations for this drink considering that Redux beverages stated that it has 280 milligrams of caffeine crammed into only 8.4 ounces. A couple of readers also stated that they enjoyed the kick, one even went so far as to say that the drink made them hot, which is usually associated with excess caffeine. Well I definitely felt the kick from all the caffeine. This drink gave me an "energy high" for about 6 hours and I did not have a crash when I was done. However it did leave me wanting more. The only other beverage that comes close in caffeine content is Wired X-294 as it has 294 milligrams of caffeine. However, you have to drink 16 ounces to get all the caffeine whereas with the cocaine drink you get 280 milligrams of caffeine in half the size. The kick rating is definitely a 10!
Cocaine Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The taste is not that good and right now it is hard to get your hands on. It gives you an incredible kick and definitely leaves you wanting more. Does this sound like anything else you have heard about? So maybe Redux Beverages named this drink what they did to gain media attention. Or maybe they just named the drink this because it has eerie similarities to its illegal counterpart? I will let you be the judge on that. My final judgment on this drink is an 8.5. Incredible kick, bad flava and poor distribution!
