The dusty can cracks open, unleashing the vague scent of coffee and displaying a mediocre head of foam. Your first sip, however, surprises you with carbonation, much like Jump Coffee Cola, and it is still something one must grow accustomed to. The actual flavour, vanilla coffee, is pedestrian, with the lack of cream not helping the beverage's already limited appeal. The java lacks an organic acidity, with a medicinal acerbity instead giving the drink its expected bite, an entirely unpleasant one at that. Fifty two grams of sugar should properly sweeten the experience, however the vanilla in particular tastes inappropriately alcoholic, much like how the extract of the expensive spice tastes straight. Overall, Slap Black and White is a painful expression of misguided creativity.
Each can contains: taurine, guarana, some B vitamins, and 200 milligrams of caffeine. The kick was rather impressive, lasting just under four hours, and did not result in a crash. All in all, Slap Black and White misfires on all cylinders.
