Beyond the ordinary, beyond just energy, flavour to blow you mind.
e2 Energy is a hi-flavour, hi-energy hit, connecting the full on taste of fruit with an invigorating energy buzz. Packed with Guarana, Taurine and B-vitamins, this is total stimulation for your senses and an energising boost for your body and mind.
Deciding to give these e2 energy drinks a fair go, I tried the citrus kick flavor too, but again I was disappointed. While I could easily drink it, it wasn't something that I would seek out. The can size was not one that would satisfy me. You need to have an intense flavor, or energy kick to have a can that small, and I ended up buying a 'V' afterwards, as I was still feeling lethargic and thirsty.
The can is small and convenient to carry, but would be better targeted as a supplementary drink. Market it in a way similar to 'Redbull and Vodka' or 'V and Jagermeister'. It provides a nice fruity fizz, but isn't a full enough flavor on its own. As was the case with the Berry Blast, I have tried this one once, and have never bought it again since.
It was disappointing really. The can does look fancy, and clearly they had gone through a lot of effort on design, but the flavor was lacking. I could make a tastier drink at home, with cordial and lemonade. I will point out that this is far superior to Lipton's Fizzy Ice Tea, which I ended up throwing out, but e2 energy is still inferior to much of what is already on the market.
It was a nice try, but keep going, e2!
I loved this drink when it was around. I used to drink a tonne of cans. My job was long hours and very stressful and E2 kept me going and full of beans. Its got a great taste. The packaging is attractive and I loved the fruity taste. It really did give me the energy kick I really need to keep me going. I wish they brought it back.
Hmmmm... must admit to being quite surprised at this drink. After my encounter with the Berry Blast I wasn't expecting much, and I was surprised to find... that I was right! This wasn't much better.
Though it certainly was more palatable than the Berry Blast, it was only JUST better. I am glad they were on special, because I wouldn't pay the normal price... not when I can get Lift+ for around $1 a can.
Overall... VERY disappointing. Will NOT be buying it again. It was very biting and sharp to the taste, and quite an unpleasant aftertaste.
