Red Bull Total Zero The Orange Edition Energy Drink Review

Though the thought of new Red Bulls does not exactly tickle my tummy, their growth spurt from a puny eight ounces to a more neoteric twelve shows the company may finally be realizing the err in their obdurate ways. Unfortunately, the can again falls victim to dumb design, a Red Bull who's packaging has only the ungainly marriage of orange and bare-aluminum. It has been more than a decade, but only now are they realizing the fatuousness of the famous name.

Surprisingly robust despite its sugar free origins, each imbibe splashing the palate with more verisimilitude than it maybe deserves. Things are less just "orange," more a goulash of tangerine and mango with a competent tartness and slight organic bite. It is spartan but interestingly paced, a relaxed, almost refreshing and unostentatious departure from the company's typical offerings. Shamefully, a metallic aftertaste, that is more of a "during" than "after," perverts each effervescent sip. Making matters worse, ace-k and sucralose sweeten with chemical pungency instead of passion, puncturing the foundation of the otherwise sapid soda.

Each can contains: B vitamins, taurine, and 114 milligrams of caffeine. The our and a half long kick is unimpressive considering its premium price, then again, so is its taste. Overall, the can to this Red Bull reads "Made in Switzerland." It is more like "Made Ineptly."

Had one of these the other day and it was pretty disgusting. They have a cherry flavor too which was equally as bad
