Jet Set Energy Drink Review
Well earlier in the week I gave the Jet Set Club Soda a try and I concluded that it could make a wonderful addition to any cocktail that would normally require club soda (replaces Schweppes). Well the original Jet Set energy drink that I am going to try comes in a 16 ounce can and retails for about $2.00 (there is also a 10.5 ounce version available as well. I have not heard or read anything yet about the original Jet Set so I was not sure what I was in for. Since there is only one way to find out I thought I would give it a thorough review! You can find these drinks at your local Safeway store in the mixer isle!
Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well the taste was actually very familiar. How many of you have had a Red Bull. Come on, no need to be shy, raise your hands. Well I am assuming a lot of hands went up. What am I getting at? Well the Orginal Jet Set Energy Drink and Red Bull taste almost exactly alike. I say almost because I think Jet Set improved on the formula. There is actually no medicinal aftertaste. So you get the same flavor as Red Bull, but there is no bite. And for that I will give it a better taste rating than Red Bull - Taste Rating 8.3!
Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well we know that it tastes better than Red Bull, but how does it hold up in the kick category? Quite well actually. At 16 ounces, Jet Set is roughly twice the size as Red Bull. It contains almost the same energy ingredients (caffeine, guarana, taurine, B-Vitamins, Ginseng) as Red Bull, you just get about twice as much. So it is indeed an improvement over Red Bull in the kick category as well. Kick Rating - 8.8
Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well with a similar taste (without the medicinal aftertaste) and twice the kick as Red Bull, and roughly the same price, users of Red Bull should be asking themselves why they are wasting their money when they can get twice as much bang for the buck from Jet Set. Really, I am serious. If you like Red Bull, don't hesitate to give Jet Set a try. Final Judgment 8.7
