I hadn’t heard of this but I saw it in the store last night and had to give it a try.
It’s cheaper than Red Bull, and comes in a 12oz can (Red Bull is 8-point-something.)
The ingredients (abbr.) are:
Water, sugar, carbon dioxide (:rolleyes:), galangal, vanilla, mustard seed, lime, cola nut, cacao, licorice, cinnamon, lemon, ginger, coca leaf (?!!), orange, corn mint, pine, cardamom, mace (?), clove, lemon juice concentrate, caffeine from coffee beans.
It starts of pleasantly spicy and flavorful, but has sort of a weak, watery finish. It’s very complex and if you slow down and let yourself taste it, each drink can be a different experience.
Overall it’s better than I expected it to be, but just shy of strong enough or cola-tasting enough. Since the vast majority of non-mainstream colas outright suck, I would actually rate this one pretty high (I can see myself finishing this 4-pack and maybe buying more at some point in the future, which is more than I can say for a lot of obscure colas I’ve tried), but it’s still behind my favorite, Coke.
