Blink Energy Water Lively Lemonade

Blink Energy Water Lively Lemonade

Kids? I love kids. Why, I've got a nephew. Oh yeah? What's his name? I want to say Mason. Clifford. Little Clifford.

That's what I thought of the entire time with this drink but replace "Mason" with "urinal cake." It's brutal. I apologize. Surely a company wouldn't create a drink that tastes like urinal cakes. Well, not purposely anyway. Something about this drink reminds me of a men’s room. I can't put my finger on it. I've never eaten or drank anything from a bathroom, nor do I want to. My girlfriend tells me tales of people going into stalls with a place of chicken wings and coming out with a plate of bones. That happens. This is happening, too and I just can't put my finger on it. Let me try to break it down again. No more sleepy dreamin'.

Initial sip...lemon, like a concentrated lemonade but pulpless. Follow up larger sip bitter lemonness followed by a strange, tangy undertone. If anyone has ever chewed a vitamin C tablet, you know, the ones that are like tiny, compressed capsules of orange juice, that's the intensity of citric power that is emanating from each subsequent tiny sip. The cane juice isn't offensive but it might be the Stevia but it's actually taking a strange turn. Normally Stevia has a small, sharp taste but now it's somehow transformed into a bitter one.

I don't know what's going on in this bottle. I drank it in its entirety but didn't particularly enjoy it. Every sip kept me coming back for more just so that I could pinpoint what it is I didn't like about it. I guess if that's their tactic, they are sure to sell tons of this stuff.

Blink Energy Water Brisk Blueberry Pomegranate

Blink Energy Water Brisk Blueberry Pomegranate

It looks like Blink worked out most of the kinks with this flavor. They put together a flavor (blueberries and pomegranate) that does a decent job of masking most of the taste of the added caffeine. Where the lemon-lime and peach flavors were more gross caffeine flavor than the actual flavor that the drink was supposed to be, this is way more fruity. The sucralose taste isn’t even all that strong, which is a rarity with drinks that use that sweetener.

It didn’t take much effort to drink this. Unfortunately I can’t say the same about the other flavors I have tried of this line. I suppose it’s nice to have an alternative energy drink other than you’re run of the mill candy flavored soda versions and coffee. I know there has to be some people out there who would enjoy and appreciate this. I just don’t happen to be one of them.

Blink Energy Water Zesty Lemon-Lime

Blink Energy Water Zesty Lemon-Lime

I was drawn in by the word "zest." Lured in like a kid to candy in the back of a windowless van. Then, much like the kid, I didn't enjoy what happened afterwards. I think you know what happened after the kid got in the van, right? It had his smelly uncle Carl and his quasi-racist grandmother Gertrude in it and they complained about society and "the Blacks" and took him to their house where they watched Jeopardy on a television with three foot tall rabbit ears with tinfoil on the ends that seemed to do nothing since the picture was still terrible. Myself was just brought into a tasteland of zesty floor cleaner and diet sweetener.

The boy and I were in the same place. That place was a position that we didn't want to be in. If we were together, and let it be known, I have met Carl and that experience is filled with mustard stained, sleeveless Megadeth shirts, and cigarette smoke. His grandma is alright in passing but talk to her long enough and you'll start to feel the "those people" phrase being spat out at you so leisurely that it's doubly offensive.

The little boy wouldn't have been better off with this drink. Sure it would have lasted longer but at least he could go to his room filled with broken sixty's toys with no heads and close the door and be done with it. This drink just keeps punishing me until I finished it. It never got better and just was lemon, lime, and a zesty diet.

Little buddy, it's rough out there. Stick it out. Soon you'll be out of there and your mom can wash the filth, stank, and disappointment from your clothes.

Blink Energy Water Perfect Peach

Blink Energy Water Perfect Peach

When I first heard about this drink I assumed it was unsweetened water with a hint of flavor and caffeine in it. As it turns out it is sweetened and is more of a Vitamin Water than your average everyday water, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The problem comes from the fact that it doesn’t exactly taste like Vitamin Water, but instead falls in between the two beverages. The peach taste is fairly fake tasting, which may be the actual flavoring, or it may be the caffeine that was added. About a year ago we got a bottle of caffeine you could add to any drink to make it into an energy drink. It gave every drink you added it to a very distinct taste, and that same taste is in this bottle. Actually the more I drink of this the more it tastes like water with caffeine added to it, which is what it is in essence. If the peach flavor had been a little different to mask the taste of the caffeine this thing would be pretty decent, but as it is I didn’t even finish the entire bottle. Sorry Blink.
