I 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 â€“ and am just now â€“ a couple of days later â€“ coming back to it. For the record â€“ 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 â€“ all starburst, broken rock font â€“ with the second largest graphic being a zero . . . as in zero sugar and zero carbs. Yum!
The tagline screamed at me to â€œTaste the Power!â€ So I did and letâ€™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 didnâ€™t taste like that distinct â€œblue flavorâ€ 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 â€“ 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 canâ€™t drink diet sodas. It is gross and I just canâ€™t stand it at all.
Did it give me all of the â€œPowerâ€ that it was promising? Not entirely sure . . . been kind of sick the last couple of days â€“ and as I said â€“ 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 â€“ 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 â€“ but then I kept on finding myself sneaking sips â€“ drinking more than I needed to. This was certainly .60 cents well spent!
Stay tuned for more reviews â€“ as I continue to clean out my fridge. Yum!
