Your first sip is more coarse than you would anticipate, thanks no doubt to the dual carbonated and nitrogenated water leading the ingredients list. This results in a less refined description of an ordinarily passive flavor, less realistic but without the sweetness to accomplish a full-blown candy interpretation. Acidity is fine, more potent than the saccharinity and gives the experience a sort of sour twist that further blurs the expectations of your usual mango beverage. It is gimmicky for sure, but with the NOS line losing its extreme caffeination years ago, I am glad to see them go all the way with an artifice.
Each can contains: B vitamins, taurine, inositol, and 142 milligrams of caffeine. It is a shame too, as the NOS line I know contained a hearty 260 milligrams of my namesake chemical. The kick here is weaker than you would predict from a drink named after the stuff moterheads use to increase power in their cars, lasting about an hour and a half. Overall, NOS Nitrous Mango's flavor is a fun exercise in texture, but there is little else to recommend here.
