NOS Nitro Mango Energy Drink Review

NOS Nitro Mango- can anyone in the class tell how that name is redundant? In any event, this tropical extension of the dormant line makes yet another silly mistake; without thinking, what flavor do you think of when you crack open a bright orange can? That is right, orange, not mango!

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.

Good thing I tend to, uh, think.
