Bomba Ruby Orange Energy Drink Review
Well this will be my second Bomba Energy Drink Review. I reviewed the original flavor earlier in the month so I am very excited to try the Bomba Ruby Orange Energy drink as I was more than pleased with the results from the original. Bomba is quite unique as they have been around since 1994. This means they have had plenty of time to perfect the taste and flavoring of the drink. Bomba also offers a very unique glass or plastic bottle. The bottle is shaped like a grenade and is 8.4 ounces (looks like they have 330ml, 12 ounce, version as well). It is really quite unique. Even the cap comes off like you are pulling the pin on a grenade! Stay tuned for the other reviews of Bomba as well!
Bomba Ruby Orange Energy Drink Review: Taste
Unique bottle and unique taste. The Ruby Red Bomba energy drink has a very original flavor. It has a strong taste of orange coupled with a lighter hint of ruby red grapefruit. There is not a sour taste to the ruby flavor, but combining the ruby with orange does make for a tasty treat that I really enjoyed. Definitely an original taste that could grow on you! Add in the fact that sparkling water is used and you not only have a very refreshing and tasty drink but you have one that has no medicinal aftertaste at all. And I mean none! Taste Rating - 9.0!
Bomba Ruby Orange Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well the taste is great, but how does Bomba Ruby Red hold up in the kick category? Well Bomba uses 80 milligrams of caffeine (same amount as Redbull, 1000 milligrams of taurine and a host of B-Vitamins packed into the little 8.4 ounce grenade. These ingredients have become pretty standard since 1994, but don't get me wrong Bomba will still give you the kick in the pants you are looking for from an energy drink. It just doesn't have the 300 milligrams of caffeine like the hardcore energy drinks. But hey, there are two different categories. If you are looking for a nice smooth kick Bomba is your beverage. If you are looking for that hardcore pump I would look elsewhere. Kick Rating - 7.5
Bomba Ruby Orange Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
I have to reiterate how well the taste of orange and ruby red was blended together. Very refreshing! The kick was decent, it did not give me any jitters or any crash which is good but it is not one of the strongest drinks available. However, it still does the job well. They should release some Mega Grenades in 16 ounce bottles with double the caffeine and then they will be able to compete with the stronger energy drinks. Final Judgment - 8.6
