Crunk Sugar Free Energy Drink Review
Well not too long ago I had the chance to try the hip hop inspired Crunk Energy Drink. Crunk, meaning to go crazy or off the hook, was a great tasting Energy Drink that used a pomegranate flavor. Today I will review the 8.3 ounce sugar free Crunk Energy Drink (also available in 16 ounces). Let's see if they successfully eliminated the sugar while keeping the great taste of the original. And if you can't remember from the original review, the sugar free Crunk Energy drink also contains Ashwaganda, which I believe is a form of Ginseng (but I could be mistaken) and Horny Goat weed which is supposed to arouse your senses.
Crunk Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well to cut the calories from 120 (8 ounces) to 5 the artificial sweetener sucralose was used. Sometimes when this is done the flavoring gets thrown out of proportion. Fortunately for Crunk, the blend worked great. The only difference between the regular and sugar free is that the sugar free tastes a little sweeter (which is not a bad thing). The unique pomegranate flavor (kind of like a mix between grape juice and cranberry juice) is still prevalant. This would still (IMHO) make for a great mixer as the taste would go great with vodka. Just don't overdo it if you mix energy drinks and alcohol. Taste Rating 9.2
Crunk Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Kick
My only quirp with this drink is that it does not give you the biggest kick. The 8.3 ounce version that I reviewed has 100 milligrams of caffeine, green tea extract and a bunch of b-vitamins (Red Bull has 80 milligrams of caffeine). It delivers a decent kick but I was left wanting more. However, the simple solution seems to be to just jump up to the 16 ounce version of the Sugar Free Crunk Energy drink. This would give you 200 milligrams of caffeine, in turn delivering a bigger kick. But since I reviewed the 8.3 ounce version that is what I will base the kick rating on. Kick Rating - 8.0.
Crunk Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The sugar free version tasted as good as the original. Crunk stayed true to the original and unique pomegranate flavor. I enjoyed it. But if you are looking for a big kick then I suggest the 16 ounce version. Still like to see a 24 ounce version as well. What can I say I am a caffeine junky. Yeah! Final Judgment - 8.6
