Energy Drink Review: Lemon V + Demon Killer Tropo
Filed in: Energy Drinks.
So, lately Fucor have added Lemon V to their range, giving us a choice of regular (green), "dark" (black), diet (silver), berry (red), or lemon (yellow). Now, lemon covered a fair range of flavours - why just in the Coca Cola stable there's Lift, which has a fairly smooth taste, Lift Plus, which has a harsher, more chemical flavour, right through to Diet Coke with Lemon, which tastes like dishwashing detergent. Lemon V tends more towards the Lift end of the Lemon Spectrum, I think. I'd be interested to know exactly why lemon as a flavour seems to be so popular, but in the meantime I'm hanging out for V Cola.
Demon "Killer Tropo", also introduced recently, contains orange, mango and passionfuit juice. And according to the ingredients list on the back, a hell of a lot more apple juice than the other three combined. The result is unsurprisingly a tropical fruit taste, albeit slightly-tart. It comes in a black and brown can. Text on the back states "If you've had a back, sack & crack wax... put this can down!"
Not really a fan of that one either, but good on them for giving us a choice of flavours.
