Diet Ronin Energy Drink Review
Well I reviewed the Original Ronin Energy Drink last month and I was quite pleased. The only complaint I had was that I wished it had fewer calories. So when I had the opportunity to pick up the Diet Ronin Energy Drink I did. With only 15 calories in 16 ounces and basically the same ingredients I was pumped to give it a try. Here is what I think of Diet Ronin.

Diet Ronin Energy Drink Review: Taste
It seems the only trade off from the original is the fact the diet version has fewer calories. I thought they would use artificial flavoring to cut calories but after looking at the can it turns out they don't. After reviewing their website I can confirm that they don't use artificial flavors or colors and they also do not use preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. So the Diet Ronin Energy Drink is still all natural and it still contains one full serving of fruits and vegetables. I don't know how they magically erased all the calories (less sugar?) but the end result is pretty good. The taste is still very similar to the original citrus blend, although there is a small medicinal aftertaste present. This can be expected because there are only 15 calories in the drink and they are not using any artificial flavors, which would make it hard to mask the energy ingredients. All that said this is a very good diet energy drink. I will give it a firm taste rating of 8.5 - which is slightly lower than the 8.7 I gave the original.
Diet Ronin Energy Drink Review: Kick
The energy formula did not seem to change from the diet to original version so I was more than ready to receive a healthy dose of energy. I was not disappointed in the kick category. I received a nice kick from Ronin that was sustained for quite awhile. The delivery felt a little slower than the original but maybe this is from the lack of sugar? On top of this I got one serving of fruits and vegetable from drinking diet Ronin. All in all its a great kick so I will give it the same kick rating as the original Ronin 9.0.
Diet Ronin Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The taste is pretty close to the original and the kick is just as good. With only 15 calories and a helping of fruits and vegetables, this all natural diet energy drink is worth a try. Nothing much else to say - Final Judgment 8.8!
