Berry CRUNK!!!

berry-crunk

Today I am excited to crack open this new flavor in the CRUNK!!! series! Get ready to feast your eyes and taste buds on Berry CRUNK!!! (acai berry-flavored)

The Berry can is very similar to the CRUNK!!! series but in a purple color scheme but I personally like this can design the best.  Crunk still offers the 16 oz can and not 15 oz like some of the others are switching to.

When you first open up the can you get a pleasant grape juice aroma that is very inviting if you are drinking this first thing in the morning like me.  I poured some BC in a glass and saw a murky purple color (remember that Citrus CRUNK!!! had that murky color but a 5 star taste) and not a lot of carbonation present.

First sip produces a tart robust flavor that is very different (in a good way) from the standard juice energy drinks.  BC has a brief micro carbonation tingle on your tongue and leaves a slight aftertaste.  BC does not taste like an energy drink in any way shape or form!!  If you know someone who doesn’t like the ED taste but wants an energy boost, here is your drink!  Berry CRUNK!!! produces a nice little pick me up kick that is similar to what we saw in Citrus CRUNK!!!

Overall I am pleased with Berry but I still think Citrus has a slight edge in the long run but I would love to start my morning with a Berry CRUNK!!

If you are in an area where you can’t fiind Crunk at your local store, you can always purchase at the CRUNK!! online store. http://store.crunkenergydrink.com/

Rubyy – Blood Orange Energy

Have you ever wanted to be ” On all day and UP all night”?  If so then Rubyy Blood Orange Energy may be for you!  Straight in to the EDG labs from sunny California is a fresh new ultra premium luxury energy drink; Rubyy!

The first thing you will notice is the fantastic looking 12 oz aluminum bottle. This bottle fits in your hand perfectly, it gets super cold and the graphic design is top notch!

Lets crack open a  Rubyy and see what we find…….  the first aroma I smell is pleasant and light, similar to grapefruit-orange.  Rubyy produces a color very similar to pink grapefruit juice, there is even some very fine particles of pulp you can see if poured into a glass.  The pulp comes from the 8% REAL juice added: blood orange juice, tangerine juice & Valencia orange juice round out the mix.

First sip and yields extreme mild carbonation, not very sweet and finishes exceptionally clean.  I also noticed that the flavor is not over powering, it’s subtle, relaxed and doesn’t linger on your tongue very long.

Did I mention the can design is bad ass?  For all you late night clubbers this can even GLOWS under black light! Look for Rubyy next time you visit your favorite club in LA or when you stay at a W hotel.

Rubyy will provide you with a nice steady energy boost that doesn’t crash on you!  (80mg of caffeine, 130 cal & 29g of sugar)

The “yy” in the Rubyy name is the only link that would tell you that the co-founders of Skyy Vodka had thier hands in this project!
