Hello everyone, this is Energy Crisis: The Energy Drink Report! Well, hello, ladies and gentlemen and everyone watching! This is Energy Crisis: Energy Drink Report – The energy drink review series. Yes, I know the ever so, the ever so rare energy drink reviews, but here we are. I figured a, you know, this is a new release and it’s actually a really hyped up one – especially for energy drinks. Which is, you know, it’s it’s not to say people don’t drink energy drinks, It’s just rare to sometimes see one, you know, with so much hype so much coverage there were advertisements for this in the Superbowl, you know lots of people are aware of this and I mean, I think you know, I look forward to trying it out to be honest and You know to give a very quick little update my mouth is still recovering That’s another reason why I think it’s such a good time to do one of these energy drink reviews. You know because why not, you know, this is like primetime energy drink consumption days, if you want to call it that? Well you know, you might say right with all the year with all the intros aside and yet it’s recovering It’s a it’s better than it was the last video better than before that so on the on the right track anyway Yeah, this is a new energy drink. I’m gonna be trying both of them out from Coca-Cola. Yeah, Coca-Cola has released their own energy drink and it’s so aptly named Coca-Cola Energy maybe They just call it energy. But I think it’s called Coca-Cola Energy right there. two flavors, you know at least two flavors that I’m gonna be trying out but a cool little bit of a Design on the can I kind of like that. It’s got the Coca-Cola energy and then it’s got the Cherry Coke energy. You know, I presume this one probably tastes like Coca-Cola and this one probably tastes like cherry Coke but I mean, who knows maybe this one is gonna be like a Peanut butter and jelly sandwich flavored or something because see it’s got you know… It could be – I didn’t try it yet. Anyway, these are energy drinks. They just released in January of 2020 so brand new, you know It’s just out I want to try it out. I want to see what do they taste like? How is the effectiveness? Yeah, is it any good? this is gonna be a little bit of a unique one. I’m just gonna try them out and then You know be checking in with little updates just see how pumped up I am You know does this make me want to run around the block, you know, five and a half times? Or you know am I just gonna sit here and not really do any I mean, we’ll see we’ll see what happens anyway III double-checked these Nutritional stats are exactly the same from one to the other So I’m just gonna check this one can here then we’ll just pour them out in these glasses and we’ll go from there So well, yeah coca-cola Energy, and this is water by the way so I could clean the palate and whatnot. Coca-Cola energy guarana B vitamins and caffeine Nutritional facts serving sizes this one can so you better down this, you know guzzle it down Dude, do whatever you have to do to consume it, 140 calories per serving 39 grams of sugar Zero grams of protein, you know, some of the ingredients are usual, you know, carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup Glucose, you know, etc Here’s the big thing. We really want to know right? Caffeine content 114 milligrams per can which you know is pretty decent. I was double checking this it’s in the refrigerator I have Rip It Energy, which only had I think like 70 milligrams for larger can and Monster has around 140. But again for a can that’s bigger than this So I mean a hundred and fourteen milligrams is enough caffeine. I think for the average person. It’ll kind of get you going Anyway … No other Spiel on it, you know some of these places they like to have some sort of motivational talk or something None of that like Monster does but anyway, we’re just gonna open up. We’ll pour it out Try it out, and then we’ll just try out the other cherry one and then I’ll check in again with the effectiveness. All right, so let’s do this here watch I’m gonna spill this everywhere It’s always fun to pour this stuff out Pour the rest down the side I’m not doing that the right way so forget it. We’ll just do what we got to do All right We have the Coca-Cola energy drink in the Coca-Cola glass right there. Enjoy the Coca-Cola So well, this is the original one. Is this supposed to taste like Coca-Cola? We’ll see. We’ll see what it tastes like then we’ll just do the same thing We’ll pour this one out and we’ll go from there. So it’s the Coca-Cola Energy drink … Going in! Yeah, I gotta say it’s not bad at all Yeah, yeah. No, not bad It’s really and I always love it when places do this because one recurring Issue that I’ve seen, you know, when it comes down to energy drinks. Because I’ve tried so many of these things You know about my energy drink drinking career Is that some places have like such a difficult time trying to mask the caffeine right because caffeine can be very bitter And it has this bitterness to it They try to cover it up. Sometimes it weasels its way through though and it’s like now I can still taste it I taste the artificial sweetener as you know If they opt for that I Taste the bitterness of the caffeine and it kind of ruins it it takes it takes away from its like this isn’t really that fun To drink it’s why I drink it. It’s it’s like yeah, I don’t know I Love it when they just mask it Perfectly and like If I, if I were to drink this I wouldn’t even know it was an energy drink, right? I wouldn’t I would think this is just a glass of coca-cola and I would have no idea about the caffeine content Because they just did such a good job masking it which I think is great You know it it tastes exactly just like a glass of coca-cola. It still has that carbonation. It’s very carbonated I should say even with all the the bubbles having dissipated very carbonated very sweet Still has that smoothness to it though, which I always like It’s just like a glass of good coca-cola, but I imagine it would be good for people who like drinking coke But they want to get that boost too So that’s what the original is. This one is just the cherry again. Everything is exactly the same there though It might be the peanut butter jelly flavored one. We’ll find out Open it up There we go, we’ll pour this one out Now top it off right there alright, I Have that symmetry Go in another coke glass. What is the odds? and Yeah still very carbonated. Alright, let’s see if this is like a cherry coke or not. So it’s the Yeah, the cherry coca-cola energy now Going in Hold on I stopped myself. I stopped myself. I stopped myself. I gotta I gotta take this sip of water first. See I caught myself last minute There we go, alright now boy that was an edge of your seat moment I don’t think it’ll get any more suspenseful than that. It was like this is that was like action movie stuff right there Okay. Now it’s a cherry coke energy drink go and officially Yeah again Just like the last one Has that sweetness? highly carbonated smooth and Again, just like the same thing No bitterness at all. You could not even tell that these are caffeinated once again Again, though. This one is like cherry coke That cherry flavor is definitely pronounced. That’s one thing like sometimes when I get cherry coke It’s like I kind of taste it but the cherry gets lost The cherry flavor is very defined in this one very defined. So well They’re basic. It’s not like it’s full of twists and turns. I think it’s very straightforward You’re gonna get what they tell you, right? This is gonna taste like coke. This is gonna taste like the cherry coke I think they’re very pleasant to drink. I think they’re good They’re flavorful enjoyable and I hope they’ll provide a boost but so far now I can’t give a numerical rating yet because I just don’t know how the effectiveness is. But let me just say I’m Very impressed by these so far. I Am I think I think they did a really good job just flavor-wise off the bat I mean, it’s I think I think it’ll be a high score just because They really did a good job with these. I mean, they’re just they’re enjoyable and I gotta give them credit so now what I’m gonna do is I’m just gonna finish these up and then I’m just gonna go about my My night really cuz it’s uh, it’s getting dark right now and we’ll just see what happens So now I think the results may vary mileage may vary depending on how sensitive you are to caffeine I’ve had you know about You know, I usually have like four or five shots of espresso of a day and then maybe some more so, you know We’ll see how how this really gets me going or if it doesn’t but I’ll let you guys know So now we’ll go into the effectiveness. I’ll keep you guys updated but they taste they taste really good Alright, so it’s been about a 40 minutes I was able to down both of them and so far. I am feeling a little bit more energized. You know, it’s it’s not it’s Too crazy, but I do realize like I feel a little bit more alert. I feel a little bit more just on point and As a result. I’m here at the microphone I’m gonna be getting ready to what record some of my new podcast. So but definitely about 40 minutes later or so I am feeling a little bit of an energy boost All right. It’s been about an hour and a half Here just finishing up washing my hands stay and hygienic staying clean and I’m still feeling a little bit of a boost still feeling a little bit of the you know, energy boost energized not jittery but just a little more alert and Perfect for uh for keeping those hands squeaky clean Watching the watching the news checking up seeing what’s going on on TV been about That huh? I’ve been about three hours now three three and a half hours or so Yeah, it’s it’s kind of it’s wearing off a little bit I mean, I I definitely don’t feel as alert, you know, as I did up. Yeah couple hours back I think it’s still there a little bit, but definitely I think it’s kind of wearing off a bit All right, so I’m just walking around not really doing all that much just moseying around in the dark As always is what I do I’ve been around I would say four hours now maybe four hours 15 minutes or so and Yeah, I’d say it’s pretty much wearing off at this point. All right, so I think I have effectively determined the effectiveness I think that these drinks they kind of could be like a short-term boost But definitely even for someone who is a vigorous consumer of caffeine, you know, I still noticed that a little bit of a boost in that that little increased alertness and Any it’s definitely there but again short-term don’t don’t count on this to keep it going the entire day but again If you want that little bit of a boost that little uptick I think it will help and it tastes really good Price for it is around $2 per can which is totally standard. I think some place is even so much cheaper. So out of 10 I’m gonna have to give both of these the same rating because I think they’re both equally good a nine out of ten I think it’s probably one of the best drinks that I’ve had. They did a really good job with it And yeah a little bit of a noticeable boost in terms of the effectiveness some we’re very impressed I think the coca-cola energy and the cherry coca-cola energy Are both good both impressed by you and oh just a really good release overall. That’s all that I have for you Ladies and gentlemen, I’m your host to the report of the week. This is energy crisis the energy drink report. Thank you and take care
