First let’s look at the pros:
This is a non-carbonated energy drink. While it’s not entirely novel, but it’s a nice option regardless. On top of that it is also an iced tea energy drink. Something about that makes it seem more natural, even though there are unnatural things afoot. The sugar content is on the lower side for these types of drinks, which is always appreciated. The final plus is that it doesn’t taste like a typical energy drink. The weird chemical candy taste is not present at all. When companies can achieve that, they get my attention.
Now on to the cons:
This smells like a cheap lemon flavored iced tea, and the taste is right there as well. This tastes like it should be a close relative to Brisk. While that may be a very good thing for some people, I personally am not a fan of that fake tea taste. In fact, this doesn’t taste like a “half and half” at all. There is no classic lemonade flavor in this can, it’s just an overly lemon iced tea. Again, perhaps that’s good for some, but I’m not on board. The final con is that along with the glucose this also has sucralose in it. That is the reason for the lower levels of sugar, but it also takes the flavor down a notch as you get hints of diet occasionally.
There it is. Take these lists and decide for yourself if this is the kind of thing you want to put in your body or not. I personally did not make it through the entire can.
