Best energy drinks in my opinion

By: Biftu Osmon

Energy drinks are created to have higher amounts of caffeine to boost energy levels and alertness. They have become a popular beverage choice in teens as of recent years. I decided to review some of my usual, as well as some new, energy drinks.

The first energy drink I’m reviewing is the orange flavor of Celsius. Celsius is one of my personal favorite energy drinks. When I first opened the can, I got a whiff of a citrus smell. I would compare the flavor of this to a Sunny-D with higher caffeine levels. I’m a big fan of citrus flavors as this is my go-to drink for when I want caffeine. I rate this drink an 8.5 out of 10.

The next energy drink I reviewed is Red Bull in the yellow edition. This was one of the new energy drinks I taste tested. I was a little skeptical to try it because the packaging wasn’t appealing. I would describe the taste of this drink as fruity. I was scared at first but I enjoyed this drink. It perfectly encapsulates the tropical flavor. I rate this drink a 9 out of 10.

The next energy drink I’m going to review is the BAYA Starbucks energy drink in the raspberry lime flavor. This drink definitely won in terms of marketing and design but not in taste. I didn’t enjoy this drink because the raspberry and lime mixed together didn’t compliment each other. The aftertaste was also unsettling. I would rate this drink a 2 out of 10.

The final energy drink I’m reviewing is the Ghost energy drink in the flavor cherry limeade. The looks of this drink were also deceiving. The flavor reminds me of a more citrusy Shirley Temple. I would give it a 6 out of 10 overall since I found it to be excessively sweet.
