Red Bull Cola

Red Bull Cola is starting to show up in various markets across the US and I was able to score myself 2 cans to sample!!  $1.29 for the 250mL can and $1.69 for 12 oz can.

Let crack open the red pull tab (click the tab image for a full size image) that has the cut out bull logo in it and see what this stuff smells like….. FLAT SODA, yup smells just like an open can of cola that sat in the fridge for a few days.

Red Bull Cola has the color of murky iced tea and it’s very foamy when poured into a glass (similar to Pepsi but not that foamy).  The funny part about the foamy appearance is that onec you take a sip there is not much carbonation on your tongue….

I also want to add that RB Cola would make a great holiday beverage since it has a slightly “spicy” flavor to it… (cinnamon, cloves, ect…)  I myself do not like cinnimon or clove tasting items so this drink doesn’t really appeal to me, but I would drink a FREE can if got one!

Red Bull Cola is all natural ingredients and starts off with water, sugar and carbon dioxide!!!  No HSFC here!  Every ingredient on the list you can read and know what it is.

• no phosphoric acid
• no preservatives
• no artificial flavors.

I was expecting a sweeter taste but was greeted with a slightly tart or bitter taste.

As for the energy kick, I would say its less than a standard red bull.

Made in Switzerland!

Red Bull

Here is the drink that started the energy drink craze! Red Bull is the most popular energy drink out there right now and sold around the world in 130 countries. The formula is the same worldwide except for vitamin content due to national regulations. The original version of Red Bull was created back in 1962 but the Red Bull that we all know was released in 1987 and is considered the “Austrian version”. (Look on your can…. most of the 250 mL cans will say made in Austria)

I have sampled many energy drinks and Red Bull is still one of my favorite, it may not be the best value out there but you can find it anywhere! Lightly carbonated, gold in color and has what I call that baby aspirin taste to it. The baby aspirin taste is what many drinks will copy, it may not taste just like baby aspirin but people get the point once they sample a Red Bull. RB contains 80mg of caffeine which is less than a cup of filter coffee and 1000mg of taurine.

Enough about the “bull” I am sure you have sampled one if you found this site!
