    Bought this because it was "cheap" at $2.20 a can, it seems the ripped the background design on the can from PewDiePie.

    Tastes like yuk. Will stick with the familiar odd taste of red bull.

    "The only energy drink with the coca cola taste"... having actually tasted it, it tastes nothing like coke... it tastes like ass.

    I tried it for the novelty factor. It's not terrible, but not great either.

    Any review a company says "the taste of classic coke you love, but with grass and fish and diff oil" you know you are in for a bad time.

    Here's an idea Coke(TM) - I know you are reading, make it coke with less water, and more caffeine.

    I was keen to try it but was disappointed it tastes nothing like Coke. As in, nothing at all.

    I'm a big fan of red bull, including their summer versions - last year was pineapple, this year is lemon-lime.

    It has a weird taste that doesn't sit well with me.

    Tastes a lot like Pepsi's version of the same thing that came out years ago. A Cola that is extra sour.

    I don't mind it at all (Only tried the Zero version) but pricing it at the same level as V and Redbull is a bit weird... should be a cheaper level product like Mother

    Maybe best not to drink Coke at all?

    Sure, that one part... the rest about caffine and sugars in the blood surely isn't. I'd imagine this would apply to most soft drinks...

    LoL... bingo. ;)

    can debunk infographic, have literally eaten a handful of brown sugar with no vomiting.
    also had a 1yr old running around consuming half a bag of icing sugar somehow without vomiting.

    Even the parts of the infographic that have an element of truth are hugely exaggerated

    typical facespace scaremongering shitpost

    It says after 45 mins you get a dopamine rush from drinking a soft drink. I feel better within seconds of swigging that sweet fizzy nectar. I must be some kind of superman.

    you know why they use a pair of bulls for a logo right ?

    "for that refreshing taste of a pair of bulls' testicles"

    which would be twice as sweaty as a yak



    im more concerned that you know what ass tastes like
