Havoc Energy Drink Review
I was lucky enough to get a couple samples sent to me of the Havoc Energy Drink because I had heard of it but I was unable to find it close to me. I had heard of it because the Havoc Energy Drink has been making waves by sponsoring colleges all across the country. They seem to be aggressively marketing colleges by offering sponsorships and by having the collegiate label printed on the Havoc can. I thought that was pretty original. First energy drink that I have heard of that will go out of it's way to print your college logo on it's energy drink. Seems like they also offer private labeling for just about anyone including, professional sports teams, corporations and even your high school fundraiser. Havoc also has a slogan that says "disrupt the ordinary" so I was expecting quite a bit from the Havoc Energy Drink. Let's see if it lives up to those expectations.
Havoc Energy Drink Review: Taste
Upon first impression I was not quite sure what I was in for as the Havoc Energy Drink was quite dark yet had a fruity smell. Was I in for a cola tasting drink or a fruity one? Turns out the dark color is just there to throw you off as it does have a rather distinct raspberry taste to it and it also seems like their is some minor grape flavoring as well. Either that or my taste buds are shot??? Overall the taste was pretty good, their was no medicinal aftertaste and it went down smooth. Taste Rating 8.3
Havoc Energy Drink Review: Kick
The flavor was definitely not ordinary, so let's see how the Havoc Energy Drink fairs in the kick category. It has been awhile since I had an energy drink in an 8.4 ounce can, but it is nice as it seems like it is just enough to get you moving! The main ingredients seem to be caffeine (52 milligrams), taurine and B-Vitamins. So it is just like the majority of energy drinks out there when you compare ingredients with the exception that it has less caffeine. So it is not the strongest drink but not every drink needs to contain an outrageous amount of caffeine. You have your Redlines, Cocaines and Wireds' for that. Havoc gives a nice balanced kick - no jitters - no after effects - just a nice balanced kick that you will notice, but it won't make your heart stop. kick Rating 7.9.
Havoc Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Seems to be a well balanced drink. It has a good kick and a decent kick. The kick won't make your heart suddenly stop or explode like some energy drinks out there, but it will get the job done. The most original thing about this beverage seems to be that they will customize the can with your college's logo. Seems like a good idea to me. If I was at a football game at my old college, I would definitely purchase one. Final Judgment - 8.4 (extra points for creativity!)
