Energy Drink Review – Power Trip

power_trip_1I was all set to write this review . . . I had taken the photos, popped the top and then taken a few sips. Then I got distracted – and am just now – a couple of days later – coming back to it. For the record – the glass has been sitting on my desk for about three days. Waiting. . .

When I initially opened the Power Trip can, I had no idea what the universe had in store for me. I did know a couple of things. The first was that this exercise of going through all of the energy drinks that I have been lugging around was going to stretch the limits of good taste and potentially health. The other thing that I knew was that the Power Trip can was looking mighty unimpressive – all starburst, broken rock font – with the second largest graphic being a zero . . . as in zero sugar and zero carbs. Yum!

The tagline screamed at me to “Taste the Power!” So I did and let’s just say that this drink blew my mind. It was the most consistently blue drink through and through that I have ever had that didn’t taste like that distinct “blue flavor” that all of the kids love these days. It is a drink that is fit for a Smurf mostly because it was very, very blue, but also because of how palatable it is. Smurfs are well known to have very well developed palates.

One problem that I do have – but this is going to come up regularly with these sugar-free drinks is how chemical the sweetener comes across. That taste is why I can’t drink diet sodas. It is gross and I just can’t stand it at all.

Did it give me all of the “Power” that it was promising? Not entirely sure . . . been kind of sick the last couple of days – and as I said – I only had a little bit of this 16 ounce gargantuan can of goodness . . . but the taste made me hopeful for the rest of the drinks – so there is something there . . . right?!

A true indication on if I enjoyed it comes from the fact that I was only going to drink enough to get an idea of what it had to offer – but then I kept on finding myself sneaking sips – drinking more than I needed to. This was certainly .60 cents well spent!


Stay tuned for more reviews – as I continue to clean out my fridge. Yum!

      Oh deary me! Drugs and Smurfs and "Power." It was all a lot for me to take – and then . . . I had to **beep** out a little bit of your comment. Many apologies for that – but babies read this site . . . it evidently ranks very high in the baby reading category.
