You read that right, today we're reviewing Cocaine Energy Drink. One of our loyal patrons donated to our Buy Me a Coffee with the request to review it, so obviously the Sharks obliged and ordered a variety pack!
I can't say what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. The mixed berry flavor is strong and you can taste the real sugar. Carbonation is medium to medium-high. Goes down pretty smooth.
Let me read you an excerpt from the can. "WARNING: This message is for the people who are too stupid to recognize the obvious. This product does not contain the drug cocaine (duh). This product is not intended to be an alternative to an illicit street drug, and anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot."
That warning is smack dab in the middle of the can along with the name of the drink and the adorable little berry logo. The design is so weird it's almost good. Almost.
Only 15 minutes since I've been drinking it and I can feel the caffeine already. Energy blend at a high-level is pretty typical with Taurine, L-Carnitine, and D-Ribose, as well as Vitamin C, B6, and B12.
If you're used to Bang and Reign, then you'll probably handle this drink with ease. If you're not though, and the Cocaine label didn't scare you away, then caution is advised. It definitely packs a punch with 280mg in a 12oz can.
Really I'm just impressed that this tastes like a normal, dare I say good-tasting energy drink. With the name and weird branding/marketing, I wrongly assumed that this was a prank and that the taste would be troll, somehow. If you're looking for a ~300mg boost in a small, tasty package, try a Cocaine!
