Coca-Cola is a classic soda that has been around for 120 years. But times are changing and people in 2020 are no longer looking for less caffeine. They want more from it. As a result of this energy drinks are becoming more popular right now so Coca-Cola, seeking to take on one of these new markets, has released a new beverage, Coke Energy, in the US. After tasting a new drink all I can say is not good!
In fact, there is a lot to say about the Coke Energy topic. If I didn't, this would be a very short post.
The basic idea of Coke Energy is to take the already popular Coca-Cola and add some of the usual energy-consuming ingredients (caffeine, guarana, etc.) to make it POWERFUL. Or at least make people have more cords after a few drinks. There's not much coming out of here. The cans look like Red Bull cans, complete with a colored tab and top of silver stainless steel. Also, the exterior design of the cans sounds really rushed and like something you'll see on store shelves in the Ubisoft open-world game. Very simply means the power of the side with some swirls.
The cans give the most "Your dad decided to drink again the vibe". But cans are not why we buy energy drinks. We buy them to boost the short-term energy that will go faster and faster as we drink more, forcing us to drink more and in the end lose all the caffeine sensitivity. And if that's what you want, you can do much better than Coke Energy.
I grew up drinking a lot of Coca-Cola. I love the taste of Coke. I don't drink again except on rare occasions, but when I feel it I enjoy it. This is definitely not Coke. But that's not something I expect from a power drink like Monster or Red Bull. I'll break down the flavor below. (I couldn't find the Cherry Zero cover. Sorry.)
This is a regular version of the drink. In a sense, this should taste just like Coke but with more energy. What it does, it doesn't work. I feel that the Coke formula is a bit tricky and combining it can lead to things going wrong. Remember the Coke New? Initially, when you drink your best, you get a good strong Coke taste. But soon it is gone and it is healing the taste arises before that leaves your mouth and then all that you have left is bad behind the ribs. It lasts longer and makes drinking Coke Energy feel like a bad experience.
Coke Energy Zero Sugar
I was expecting this to taste like the original Coke Energy water, though with a sweet little finish. Instead, I found something very different. The first taste that fills your mouth with a sickly Coke, followed shortly after by Coke Energy. But this one is very bad. Mostly metal and durable. I hate it.
Coke Energy Cherry
I have never been a huge Coke Cherry fan. Honestly, most seasoned Cookies don't do it to me. So I was expecting to hate Coke Energy Cherry. And yet … I didn't. In fact, out of the three I tried, it was I who saw myself drinking again. (If I had no access to anything else but Coke Energy is slow. That sounds a little weird.) Cherry hasn't had a bad deal by far and the overall taste of the fruit helped make the energy drink all work better. Or at least hide it in my tongue.
I do not recommend buying these unless you are curious about their taste or just love the backdrops and bad energy drinks.
At the store where I bought it, all the Coke Energy cans remain unaltered. The Red Bulls are around again Game Oil it looks clean. I think this drink may not be around for long. So if you're curious, you might want to catch up soon.
