Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: icy is a fish again on 06-15-2006, 10:36
Okay, so I'm starting this thread to review drinks.  Mine are mostly going to be energy drinks.

Today's Selection:

Title: Hansen's Energy Pro
Size: 16 oz
Price: $2.19

Taste: Ever taken a pixy stick and dumped it on a table, then crushed up a caffeine tablet into the mixture, and then put the whole thing on a spoon and ate it?  That's the exact taste sensation that you get when you drink Hansen's Energy Pro.  Liquid Pixy Sticks + Caffeine Pills.  Not the most pleasant thing to have to drink through 16 oz.

Effect: I guess it works, I made it to work today.  I'll update later how I'm feeling.  EDIT: After work, I'm okay, but it didn't really work as well as other ones.  Also, I got the down feeling about 4 hours into my day, quickly resolved though by some other things.  Also, this one doesn't sabotage your hunger like most other energy drinks do.  That's a mixed blessing.  EDIT 2: I realized why this one ended up making me happier towards the end of the day: 100% of RDA for Biotin.  I change my rating because of this.

Rating: 7 out of 10.  (Bad taste, works okay, overall feeling = good)

Random thought: Pixy Stick soda would have been a neat idea.

Title: POM Pomegranate Black Tea
Size: 13.5 oz
Price: $4-ish

Taste: In America, it seems like most of the tea is kinda sugary, although not nearly to soda levels. That's okay, I guess, since it IS part fruit juice. In any case, if you like tea and pomegranate juice, imagine you poured them together. There really isn't much more to it than that.

Effect: Ask again in like 20 years. I don't know. I just drink the stuff because I like the taste.

Rating: 8/10 (extra point because the glass cup is awesome and reusable if you're cheap)

Mountain Dew MDX
14 oz.
$1.29 (here anyway)

Taste - Moreso like a further concentrated Mountain Dew, except, more green than regular MD.

Effect - Not much really, just a glorified, more expensive Mountain Dew.

Rating - 5/10 (the price isn't worth it)



----


Mountain Dew AMP
16 oz.
$1.99

Taste - My favorite energy drink, because it's flavor is so distinct from the rest of the energy group crowd.  Kind of tangy, and doesn't leave that chemically aftertaste that some other energy drinks do.

Effect - Well, it doesn't contain as much of those "special herbs" as others, nor does it have an overload of B vitamins (maybe 30-40% DV in one can, compared to a monsters 150-200%, or a sobe superman's astonishing 500% per can).  The effect = not as much buzz, which is good, since I dislike feeling queasy and then shaking after an energy drink, which only happens occaionally, but enough to make me stop drinking them.  Of course, MD AMP's take care of the problem by not having those symptoms for me, ever.

Rating - 8.5/10  For the unique flavor.

Imasock: You don't get the queasy shaking shuddering feeling with amp until you finish 3 tall boys in an hour, and then you throw up.  Also, I think their first offering (the 8.4 oz can) is just enough, I tire of the taste after then XD

Post by: Imasock on 06-15-2006, 19:26
Well sheesh, I don't ever plan on drinking 3 in an hour... o_0
Maybe you tire of the taste since you have had a bad experience with it, or drink it too fast?

Title: Ampalaya Extract Juice
Size: Varies
Price: Probably $.50 a lb

Taste: Very Bitter and Very vile. Leaves that distateful taste in your mouth.

Effect: Its supposed to be a old, country remedy for tonsilitis and colds.. I don't remember if it really worked.

Rating (so far): -2 out of 10.

Title: Rip-it Energy Drink - Citrus X flavor
Size: 16 oz
Cost: $0.99

Energy Components: Taurine, Caffeine (100 mg x 2), Guarana Seed Extract, B1, B2, B3, B6, Pantothetic Acid, C

Taste: It tastes like orange soda.  Think of the taste of the orange jolt, then make it twice as sweet and fizzy, and then put into effect that the aftertaste is absolutely nothing.

Effect: A lot better than the original citrus-x, which had half the caffeine and glucorolactone (doesn't do much...)  It'll probably do what everything else does; get me hyper for 4 hours, then jittery, then down.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10 (Orange soda is good and all, but when you sweeten it, it becomes a lot less bearable for many sips.  Ripit is a great value.)

EDIT: Random thought: They have energy syrups, but I wonder if there's anyone adventurous enough to make an energy maple syrup...

Post by: icy is a fish again on 06-20-2006, 14:05
Title: Speed X - Phunk Berry
Price: $0.99
Size: 16 oz

Taste: Tastes like Red Bull (which tastes like liquid smarties) mixed with the "mixed berry" flavoring.  Not bad at all.  Now with less salt :D

Effect: Less caffeine than red bull, but it's a nice round pleasant effect.  Less effective than most, but it's good for those getting into them; not only that, but it doesn't give you a caffeine headache later in the day.

Rating: 8 out of 10 (Good value, tastes pretty yummy, lacks full body of most energy drinks)

----

Title: SoBe No Fear Gold
Cost: $2.19
Size: 16 oz

Taste: Peach, with a hint of tangerine, when served extra cold.  When served at a temp higher than 50 F., adds a noticeable alcoholic taste.  Odd, but somewhat refreshing.  Just like Adrenaline Rush, though, is far too sugary.

Effect: Lasts a long time, and gives happy feeling afterwards.

Rating: 8.3 out of 10 (Almost too ripe peach taste leaning towards schnopps, drink cold, works long time, just enough)
Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: Iron cheFDM on 06-20-2006, 21:10
Title: SoBe Black Tea
Size: 16 oz
Price: $1 or $2 (depends)
Taste: It's been so long I forgot how it taste.
Effect: Takes all your troubles away.
Rating: 9 out of 10.
(This drink is no longer sold, the drink has something that is not supposed to be in it from random tales.)

Ah, Zen Blends were part of what made SoBe more famous, right before they launched the ones that they have out now.  They had really cool bottles that made a nice sound when you thumped the top.  Also, they were prone to bottoms falling out XD

---

Title: Speed Zone (Red Zone and Speedy Cat?)
Size: 16oz
Price: $2.19

Taste: Tastes like the fizzy candies called "Pop Fizz".  Alternatively, it's the most convincing chewable vitamin C taste that contains no vitamin C.  So either Pop Fizz or Liquid Chewable Vitamin C tablets.  Somewhat refreshing.

Effect: Will refresh later, so far just a little bit of a headache <>;;

Rating: 7.5 out of 10 (What's with all the cheap candy flavored energy drinks?, Naoki and Tatsh Eurobeat)
Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: icy is a fish again on 06-22-2006, 11:00
Effect (from above): Worked surprisingly well, although red bull clones are all very similar in that regard.


--

Title: Full Throttle - Sugar Free
Size: 16 oz
Price (special): $0.99

Taste: Okay, imagine that you took an orange, peel and all and puree'd it.  Then take that and make it into a perfume.  Then bottle it.  That's how I imagine this tasting.  It's freaking weird and way too sweet.

Effect:  Later.  Right now the aftertaste is killing my love.

Rating: 3 of 10

EDIT: Worked pretty well, headache was foremost but after an hour, I forgot that I had a headache and things got marginally better.  Taste is still something I do not want to have again.

Revised Rating: 4 of 10
Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: icy is a fish again on 06-26-2006, 08:16
Title: SoBe No Fear Sugar Free
Size: 16 oz
Price: $2.19

Taste: Orange + Lemon + Tangerine + Creatine = Yummy.  One of the things they have tried to do with this is not make it WAY too sweet.  First sugarfree energy that hasn't made me want to gag.

Effect: Drink water with it and it will be very good for you.  If you don't, you'll find yourself constipated later.  Otherwise, perks you up quite nicely for quite some time.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10 (Pretty tasty for an energy drink, as long as you water yourself it works without consequence.)

---

Title: Mountain Dew Amp -Tall Boy-
Size: 16oz
Price: $2.19

Taste: My friend described the taste and effect as the derivative of Mountain Dew.  Refer to Fig. 1 for visual representation.

Fig. 1:
d(Mt. Dew)
------------------  = Amp
d(taste,effect)

It doesn't have much of a fruit flavor, just very... soda like with a lot of sugar.  It does taste very good though.

Effect: The worst thing that ever happened to energy drinks is them being made 16 oz.  It is also the best thing that ever happened to them.  Normally, I get about 2/3 of the way through it and do not want any more, then I must finish it, so it gets drunk in some time span.  Er... but yeah, it works quite well, I need to stop drinking energy drinks though, they're probably slowly killing me.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10 (Wai taste, works well enough)

Do I see a scalar over a vector, and the instantaneous change in both?

I'll write a review for something else later once one occurs to me.

Post by: icy is a fish again on 06-26-2006, 22:07
no vectors, just variables.  instantaneous change in x with respect to y and z.  I don't know how to make a small delta.  Maybe it's a second derivative, I'm not certain.

No review for today because I drank phunk berry again, I wasn't looking for a headache, plus I'm trying to be SLIGHTLY healthier.

Okay, let's go for something slightly more commonplace.

Title: Coke Zero
Size: The usual cans/bottles, 12 oz, 20 oz, or liters.
Price: The usual price for cans/bottles.

Taste: Not quite as much like Coke as advertised, but pretty good (slightly stronger than Coke, but in a different way... reminds me of some spices), although only if you drain it before it decarbonates. Like all other diet soda, once it's out of gas, it sucks.

Effect: Er. It's Coke. Some caffeine, but not nearly major.

Overall: I'd give it 7/10 while it's still fizzy, 3/10 when it's not. Drink it fast.
Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: MidnightSun on 06-27-2006, 06:03
Title: Napoleon Brandy (I forgot the name of the actual brand, but it had his face on it.)
Size: Standard wine/gin bottle size.
Price: I dunno, my Uncle bought it.

Taste: Like alcohol, (duh)

Effect: Gets ya drunk. And burns your insides as you drink it.

Overall: 6/10 I'd like to drink Vodka. Best drunk with ice.

Title: Full Speed Energy - Orange
Size: 16 oz.
Price: $1.49

Taste: Erm... oddly, like orange soda mixed with ginger ale.  I can't come up with another taste to describe it, except that, instead of having an acid aftertaste (sour), it has a basic aftertaste (bitter).  This strikes me as... erm... weird.

Effect:  Oh boy, this one has real sugar AND fake sugar (sucralose).  I can imagine the headaches now...  I'll update then later.

Rating so far: 6/10 (Nothing spectacular, I hope I don't get multiple headaches.)

If I may,

Title: Jarritos - Pina (pineapple)
Size: 13.5 oz.
Price: $0.35-$0.89

Taste: Like pineapple soda.  With real sugar.  The flavor's not too heavy, but there's maybe a little too much sugar.

Distinguishing features: Pineapple flavor, real sugar, glass bottle, hecho en Mexico.

Tips: Don't peel off the label, the glue they use on it smells like crap.

Value: No-brainer.  Good size tasty drink for almost free, depending on where you buy it.

Title: Monster Energy Drink
Size: 16 oz. regular, 23.5 Mega-Monster
Price: about $2.00 regular, and $3.50 for Mega

Taste: A lot like Red Bull or Hansens. A rare taste, like soda, but with plenty of sugar.

Effect: Gives you energy, and plenty of it. Have too much and you feel like you're on crack. It says limit three cans per day  (two on the Mega), but that's no fun; chug as many as you can I say! just don't die. Gooooooooooood stuff.

Title: Pocky
Size: I KNOW IT'S NOT A DRINK
Price: Depends where you live, I get mine for about 2$ a box.

Taste: Chocolate and Unsalted Pretzels!  Very rich, not good while you are having a cold.

Effect: Gets you happy when you have it, then you wonder why you just spent so much money on japanese foods.

Title: Full Throttle Fury
Size: 16floz
Price: $2

Taste: Orange and/or cherry, I can't put my finger on it.  It doesn't bite, it doesn't feel electric.  It's missing some taste component to differentiate it from non-energy soda.  Tastes okay, but doesn't taste like an energy drink.

Effect: No effect on me.  But I can never tell with any of these drinks.  It's got 57g's of sugar, if that means anything to you.

Rating: 7/10, because I drink these things more for the taste and the psychological effect of drinking something that "tastes" energetic.
Title: The Drink Review Thread!
Post by: copper on 11-18-2006, 13:16
Title: Full Throttle Blue Demon
Size: 16floz
Price: $2

Body: OMFG WHERES THE FIZZ

Taste: Blue agave, as it says on the can.  Mild taste.  Definitely artificial, but still nice.  Corn syrup, eew. rating--;

Effect: n/a

Rating: 7/10 (changed from 8/10, after I discovered my teeth were blue.)

Other thoughts:  You have to try it at least once.  It's pretty unique.  Besides, the blue can is undeniably awesome. :D  Oops, I double posted. :)

Post by: icy is a fish again on 11-18-2006, 15:57
nah, that's fine.  I'd like to append my review of hansen's energy pro, as I bought a case of it XD

Taste: One of the few energy drinks you can have and it not taste terrible after having brushed your teeth and mouthwashed.

Effect: I get really rather sleepy an hour after I have one, and then about 2 hours later I'm happy and fuzzy.  I blame the ginseng.

Case price: $27 at sams club, for 36 cans ^^

Okay guys, not really a drink, but as promised (albeit quite late):

UMPH tablets
Size: It's... a tablet. That you dissolve in your drink.
Price: $21 for 48 (plus shipping and whatever your original liquid cost)

Taste: It claims to have no taste. I don't think so... it kinda crappifies your drink, especially if it wasn't already flavored like over-sugared Sprite/7-UP. Maybe in Mountain Dew? But that might be too much caffeine (it's 99 mg / tablet)... in most cases, anyway.

Effect: Works great when you're desperate. It's a cheap solution, at least.

Rating: 5/10 (+2 if you're a cheapskate though)

Well, here is what I am drinking right now.

Water

Size: It comes out of your faucet, as much of it as you want. Crazy!
Price: $0, but I've got a filter and that cost like $20

Taste: Nothing to write home about. But if it is, you might want to stop drinking it.

Effect: Works for thirst, not quite an energy drink though.

Rating: 8/10???

Cappuccino

Size: 12 teaspoons on 0,2 litres of hot water and 0,3 litres of milk.

Price: 1€.

Taste: Glutamate.

Effect: EVERYDAY IS CAPSLOCK DAY. *SHIVER* Also leads to the feeling of sacrificing some of your lifetime for some immediate extra power.

Sounds like you make your Cappuccino quite strong, Silencer.  I've been keeping away from the caffeines for a little while, about 3 cups of coffee in the last month (amazing how it affects you without you realizing it).

Favorite beverage at the moment?  CALPICO COOLER from the Bubble Tea shop in downtown.  They give you a choice of 7 flavors, I like the strawberry flavor with lychee jellies.  Anything I've had there, delicious. 

Price: $5

Effect: None, unless you consider sugar rush an effect.  It's a yogurt beverage, so if you're lactose intolerant, it might have an unhappy effect.

Downside: doesn't last as long as you'd like, even if you get a large one.

Master Race Beverage (Sprecher's Orange Dream Soda)

Size: 16 oz.  Just enough to be dangerous.

Price: About $2.

Availability: Soda shops?  And Jay's Stuffed Burgers (which is master race burger joint in Michigan).

Effect: Uh, your life becomes about three shades happier?  Basically whatever normal soda does except leave you with an aftertaste that makes you want to high-five koalas in Zimbabwe.

Downside: No downside.  You need this soda in your life.  And other Sprecher flavors.  This Orange Dream tastes like a creamsicle.  And is it ever wonderful.

Rating: 10.5/10 A+ WOULD BUY AGAIN

btw this is icy at sock's house wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Sock bought 5 more bottles of Sprecher soda. It is. That. Good. Buy at your own peril.

Yeah you can't go wrong with any of the flavors Sprecher puts out, it seems.

Orange Dream - Basically orange soda but absurdly creamy and has a solid taste that never seems to get old no matter how much you've had out of the bottle
Red Apple - Strong apple taste and fragrance, slightly tangy. Not as solid as the orange one but definitely good
Cream Soda - Extremely sweet. probably the smoothest cream soda I've ever had

Personal Favorite:
Cherry Cranberry - Sweet, bitter, smooth, and surprisingly complex-tasting for a soda. This is definitely worth experiencing at least once.

Remind me to make my way back to Jay's Stuffed Burgers for such an experience again.  And to see if they have any other flavors that have not been tried.

And making a MISTAKE.  MAKING ALL THE MISTAKE.

^ Some time ago we made the latter for a Dr. Who party as 11th's Sonic Screwdriver.

10th's was 1:1 blue curacao and Sprite.

Haha, that's good stuff indeed. I'm also partial to tea and juice.

I might drink too much juice though.

Juice is pretty good stuff, provided it still has the stuff that makes it more like fruit and less like syrup. :) 
I think your body would tell you if you are drinking too much juice.

Smoothies on the other hand.  Those are just wonderful.
