I don't want to be mean, but with all the new flavors and different things happening with energy drinks, Effect Energy has some work to do.
It tastes like Red Bull and all those other ones.
If a drink company wants to differentiate and have chance of success, and if your packaging & branding are "business as usual", then the flavor is going to have to be different from what everyone else is doing.
Or shouldn't it have some other unique selling position? A normal sized can? More stimulants than any other drink? A new ingredient that no one else has?

Hardcore Energize Bullet
Have you tried this energy shot yet?
This is a different spin on all the little 5 or 6 or 7 or 8 hour energy shot drinks.
It's a larger dose of sugar free energy in a very unique package. I guess you can safely say that no one else out there sells a drink that comes in a hard plastic vile.
It tastes like blue Cool Aid but with a slightly medicine flavor. It's pretty ok and not over the top like another energy shot I wrote about recently.
The energy rush is very good too. It'll keep you buzzing for several hours.
The ingredients are all the basic stuff. I just wish they had niacin.
I pick mine up from 7-11 stores. You can check out more at the iSatori site.

Redline Power Rush
Holy Cow, this stuff is strong.
See the previous post about the normal sized Redline. This is very similar in taste and energy rush, etc. except in 2 areas.
First off, I find that the orange flavor is way better than the fruit one. This surprised me, but it really was much more palatable.
Second, I drank a full bottle all in one setting and felt a little funny...almost like I had too much caffeine. The next day, I got another and only drank half the thing. That's when I noticed that each bottle is TWO SERVINGS!
That's actually an awesome thing because you're getting twice as much value from this energy shot than you get with competing products.
Anyway, give them a try. They're awesome...except when they don't contain yohimbine.
