Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy Drink Review
Well a couple months ago (May 07) I had the chance to review the regular Liquid Lightning Energy Drink. It had it's ups and downs with the best part being the cost ($1.00 each!). So when I saw a Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy Drink I thought I would give it a try. This 8.4 ounce energy drink was also only $1.00 and it only had 5 measly calories. Now we just have to figure out how the taste and kick are. So enough fluff and onto the review.
Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well the original Liquid Lightning had a distinct berry taste to it. Well the formula for the sugar free version, although slightly altered, still had that distinct berry aftertaste to it that was actually quite pleasant. However, since it was sugar free, (splenda/sucralose) it was actually a little sweeter than the original. This was not a bad thing at all, a little sweeter, but still not medicinal aftertaste. I liked it. Taste Rating - 8.5
Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well the kick category was not the best for the original, nor will it be for the sugar free version. The energy ingredients include caffeine (not sure how much, but it is probably similar to Red Bull), taurine and b-vitamins. So the kick was not over the top and would definitely not make my Strongest Energy Drinks list. However, if you look at the cost of only $1.00, you can buy two of these bad boys and the kick would actually be pretty good. However, since I am only rating one, I will give it a kick rating of 8.2.
Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The Sugar Free Liquid Lightning Energy drink has a pretty good berry taste, no medicinal after taste and an average kick. What sets this drink over the top is the fact that you can pick one up for about $1.00. So for the "cheap factor" I will add a couple bonus points. Why am I adding bonus points for the cost? Well, it's my blog so I can. Final Judgment - 8.4
