Red Bull The Summer Edition

Now that summer is over, it seems fitting to finally review Red Bull The Summer Edition. You’ve had regular Red Bull. You’ve had Red Bull Sugarfree. You might have tried the Red, Blue, and Silver ones. It was a 7-Eleven exclusive, so unless you ventured in search of a Slurpee you probably missed out on your chance of snagging one. The Summer Edition comes in a bright yellow can. I only saw it the 12 oz. size, but it might have been available in other amounts. It has a tropical fruit taste. It’s mostly a citrus and pineapple flavor with some mango and papaya. I like it. I bought a few cans of the stuff because I know the window is closing on them. You should get them while you can. It’s a great excuse to go to 7-Eleven. Arm yourself with twenty bucks and live like a king.

Arizona Rx Energy Herbal Tonic

Arizona Rx Energy Herbal Tonic is an Invigorating Blend of Green Tea, Tropical & Citrus Fruits, Panax Ginseng, Eleuthero Root, Guarana, Schisandra, and Vitamins A, C, & E. It’s not really healthy for you, so don’t be fooled by that “Herbal Tonic” nonsense. It’s got all kinds of additives and preservatives and it’s loaded with sugar. I’m not sure how energizing it is, but it’s very drinkable and refreshing and gives you a little caffeine buzz. It has a sweet, fruity taste with just a little tartness thrown in for balance. There are a lot of better energy drinks on the market, but the price is what sets this one apart. It’s only 99¢ for a 23-ounce can, which is a good deal. An 8-ounce can of Red Bull costs more than two bucks for comparison. Red Bull is a lot better, but cheap is cheap. And sometimes cheap is good. Try it, you might like it. Even if you don’t, you only wasted a dollar.

Red Bull – The Silver Edition

Red Bull has three new special flavors out: the Blue, Red, and Silver Editions. The Blue Edition is blueberry flavored, the Red Edition is cranberry flavored, and the Silver Edition is lime flavored. Because limes are silver. I don’t know why they wouldn’t just make a Green Edition instead, that would make more sense. I guess silver looked cooler on the shelf and they couldn’t think of a silver fruit so they settled on lime, because why the hell not? It’s a very clean looking can, which compliments the crisp flavor of the energy drink inside. If you’re a vodka and Red Bull person, I think this is the Red Bull for you. It would make an awesome mixer. It’s also good for when you need a quick pick-me-up and your crack dealer isn’t answering his phone. If you like Red Bull, you’ll like this.

Red Bull – The Blue Edition

Red Bull is the undisputed king of the energy drinks. But even they feel the need to shake things up a bit every once in a while and so they have created Silver, Red, and Blue Editions of their signature product. Silver is lime flavored, the red is cranberry flavored, and The Blue Edition is blueberry flavored. It’s not overly sweet and its taste vaguely resembles blueberries. It tastes sort of like a diet drink while it’s on your tongue, but there’s no lingering aftertaste. It takes some getting used to, but I like it more and more with each sip. If you like regular Red Bull, you’ll also like this. It also has a cool blue can with cool graphics and appearances are important. You’ll make friends if you buy The Blue Edition Red Bull.

Red Bull

This is the O.G. energy drink. It is a bit of an acquired taste, but it is better tasting than Rockstar or Monster. It is pretty good for a quick energy boost, but I feel like I’m immune to them now. Vodka and Red Bull: a staple of night clubs, and a delicious treat before work. Red Bull doesn’t really give you wings, but if you drink enough of them you might get a heart murmur.
