Full Throttle Fury Energy Drink Review

From the Full Throttle line of energy drinks, this is the cherry-flavored Fury.

The boost is nothing unique, a good three to four hours feeling more alert, for me.

This is the cherry-flavored version of Coca Cola’s Full Throttle drink. The first sip is pretty good – just the slight energy drink aftertaste you almost take for granted.

After a couple more chugs, I realized this drink is sweeter than a Hallmark ad with little teddy bears, and it gets old really fast. My mouth and tongue are buzzing with the sweetness before I’m half way through the can.

If you like overkill on cherry flavoring, then this is the caffeine-injected, cherry kool-aid drink of your dreams.  As much as I appreciate the original Full Throttle, it’s Fury-ous cousin is way too sweet for its own good.

Full Throttle Nature Is One Bad Mother

Energy Drink Review of: Full Throttle Nature Is One Bad Mother.  Really, Coca-Cola? Did anyone try this one before it made it out the door and into production?

Modest caffeine content in this drink.

If we gave negative numbers on our ratings scale, this would rank way below zero. It tastes like a bitter root mixture of chocolate licorice and fake blueberries. Must be the ACAI ingredient? Absolutely disgusting.

This is the worst drink I have ever tasted in my entire life.

Lightning Bolt Energy Drink Review

Energy Drink

Steven Seagal’s Lightning Bolt Energy Drink Review – I’m lumping together these two drinks together, just to see what Steven Seagal is going to do about it.

If these drinks actually packed any power, I didn’t notice. Sorry – but I didn’t, so it must have been minimal at best. I don’t think it’s relevant, because if you read on, you have no reason to purchase this drink.

They both have unique flavors – Asian Experience is a nasty tea flavor (what a catchy name!) and Cherry Charge (even better! Pow! Bam!) is Cough Syrup-flavored.

If you’re not a Steven Seagal fan, then don’t bother.

If you are a Steven Seagal fan (and really, who isn’t?) then – still – don’t bother.

Even if you see these on sale for $1, like I did, walk away. The cordyceps and goji berry sound intriguing, I know, but you should just wait in line, as you know I am, for the Chuck Norris drink.

Hype Energy Drink Review

Hype Energy Drink Review: How’d they score the hype.com domain is a good question. How’d they score on our EDB rating? is a better question. Short answer: this is good stuff.

Hype’s small can doesn’t pack in the power; if you’re looking for a stay-up-all-night-playing-Halo kick, this wouldn’t do. Hype works well as a daily boost – easy to drink, no crash after the energy wears off.

This drink easily won fans on the BoostAdvisor team – 4 out of 5 people really enjoyed the flavor. Its berry flavor is a refreshing change from the more common citrus taste.

Some of their marketing is lame, but they’re obviously working on it. The cans originally said “Live Life. Love Life. Love Hype.” We all agreed that this was as weak as it gets.

They removed this, but we think the smaller print could go too – “You’re ready and feeling good! All you need is an extra boost. You need a Hype!”

We thought “Believe the Hype” would be a better slogan. (ed. note – a few months after originally posting this review on the old site, Hype changed their slogan to “Believe the Hype”. We applaud them for paying attention to their fans!)

If the berry flavor doesn’t appeal to you, move on, but at least give it a try. It’s “lightly carbonated” – which really makes it easy to consume on the run. So – delicious, refreshing, and a good kick for a small can. That’s right. Believe the Hype.
