Diet Jet Set Energy Drink Review
Well it has been quite some time since I reviewed the Original Jet Set Energy Drink but I remember it quite well. So when I heard of the new Diet Jet Set Energy Drink I was pretty excited to give it a try. The Diet Jet Set comes in a sleek well designed 10.5 ounce (single serving) can and it has only 4 calories in the entire can. This new Diet Jet Set comes in addition to the Original Jet Set and their full line of Energy Mixers. So let's see how it performs in the taste and kick categories.
Diet Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Taste
Now the original Jet Set tasted very similar to Red Bull. The only difference seemed to be that the formula was improved to deliver a smoother taste without the medicinal aftertaste that will forever be associated with Red Bull (at least in my mind). This formula carries over to the new diet addition as well. There are slight changes in the taste as it seems there is less carbonation in Diet Jet Set compared to original. It also seems that the diet flavor delivers a smoother and lighter taste. To be honest I personally liked the diet version better than the original, although I think the fact that it has only 4 calories might sway my opinion. So if you like Red Bull then I suggest you give this new Diet Jet Set a try as it vastly improves on the medicinal flavored Red Bull. Taste Rating - 8.6
Diet Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Kick
Alright the taste is smoother and lighter, let's hope these characteristics don't carry over into the kick category because that's the last thing you really want in an Energy Drink. When reviewing the nutritional facts it looks like the Diet Jet Set has the same energy ingredients as the Original meaning there is 100 milligrams of caffeine, 25 milligrams of guarana, ginseng and plenty of B-Vitamins. So not only does this taste better than Red Bull, it walks all over it in the kick category as well. Not too bad for a can that costs the same. Oh yeah, and since it is sugar free, I didn't have to worry about any sugary crash after the energy wears off. Overall a nice kick. Kick Rating - 8.8
Diet Jet Set Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Since Jet Set carries a full line of energy mixers I was glad that they also added a diet version to the lineup. I mean I like to party but I also don't like to go out drinking and come home having consumed 1000's of calories in booze. Not that I would ever do that. Normally I don't appreciate Red Bull Clones as much as other ED's, but when you vastly improve on the formula to get rid of the horrible aftertaste I can't do anything but tip my hat. So put down that damn Red Bull already and pick up one of these instead. Final Judgment - 8.8
I also hear the Full Line of Energy Mixers is going Diet as well. Can't wait to get my hands on these as they make a nice pick me up to your normal everyday cocktail!
