Mad Croc Energy Drink Review
Well basically the Mad Croc Energy drink is toted as your "every day energy drink." I am here to give you my Energy Drink Review and two cents pertaining to this product. Besides the regular version, they also have a sugar-free version as well as energy chews and energy gum which I will review later. Seems like Mad Croc is not only going after the "every day" user with their 8.4 ounce energy beverage, they are also going after college students. Looks like they recently sponsored the National Lampoons spring break in
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Wish I could have been there. Think of it. Girls, Sun, Cocktails and Mad Croc (in that order, sorry Mad Croc). Would have been a blast. Well enough fluff and onto the actual review.
Mad Croc Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well this energy drink comes in a cool 8.4 ounce slim can. The can has a slogan that says "energy with a wild bite." At first I was a little concerned because when I think of bite I think of medicinal aftertaste. Luckily for me I really did not have to worry about this with Mad Croc. There was no medicinal bite, it was actually quite sweet. The flavor is very similar to Red Bull except for the fact that it is noticeably sweeter. In my review of Red Bull I remarked on the medicinal aftertaste. I believe Mad Croc has improved on this by making a sweeter version of Red Bull without the medicinal aftertaste! So if you are a fan of Red Bull, give Mad Croc a try. You won't be disapointed. In fact I am willing to bet that you could do a blind taste test between the two and you probably would not even notice. Taste Rating - 8.4
Mad Croc Energy Drink Review: Kick
Although Mad Croc improved on the Red Bull taste it doesn't look like they upped the anti in the kick category. Still looks like the 8.4 ounce can has about 80 milligrams of caffeine combined with taurine and a bunch of B-vitamins. Don't get me wrong it still has a pretty good kick but there are stronger energy drinks out there. In Mad Croc's defense they do tote the beverage as being an "every day energy drink." So you really don't need 200 milligrams of caffeine to mow the lawn. To sum up the kick was decent but not over the top. Kick Rating 7.5.
Mad Croc Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well there was a definite improvement on the Red Bull flavor (less medicinal aftertaste) but the kick was pretty much the same. I look forward to also trying the sugar free version to see if they improved the taste here as well. Overall the best improvement seems to be that you can find these drinks extremely cheap. You can buy them in tons of place including, Target, 7-11 and even online from $1 to $1.50. So you can basically get two of these for the price of one Red Bull. I like that!! Final Judgment - 8.4 (extra points for a bargain buy!)
