When I try an energy drink to write these reviews it’s usually 50/50 whether I’m drinking it for fun or drinking it because I need the caffeine. This review fully falls into the latter category. I’ve only had a single cup of coffee today and it’s 5pm here on the east coast. Ideally this gives me a delicious boost to finish the rest of my work.
With strawberry kiwi I was expecting more strawberry than kiwi, and a really sweet taste, but maybe that’s because I recently had a Bang.
It’s actually slightly bitter; not sure if that’s the caffeine or intentional artificial flavoring. It’s also very inoffensive which I like, because that usually leads to high re-drinkability. Gonna give it a 7 here, because it’s good but nothing about the taste puts it over the top. I’ll definitely try it again, so maybe it’ll be an acquired taste that grows on me.
I like the can. I usually criticize green and black cans for being “Monster copycats” but this has enough going on to spare it from my wrath.
“An energy drink for the mind and body” in tandem with the star background is getting frighteningly close to targeted marketing to astrology girls, so I’m just going to ignore that and press on. Overall I think it’s a solid design, somewhat minimalist but enough to draw you in.
Pours out clear with medium carbonation.
It took a bit to kick in but it definitely packed a punch. I was able to power through the rest of my work and have some leftover to hop on COD blueprints with the boys.
For the record, I think 200mg of caffeine is the perfect amount (at the moment, definitely liable to change) so I wish more drinks would meet in the middle, instead of 160 vs 250-300.
Above average drink overall. I don’t think anyone’s going to be upset with this drink, but I don’t think it’s anything to write home about. The strawberry kiwi flavor is muted and it’s in the sweet spot of caffeine for me.
Worth checking out and I’ll be waiting to see if Triton is able to follow up Strawberry Kiwi with any flavors/twists.
