Firefly Chillout Blackcurrant and Cinnamon Review

On the opposite end of the Firefly drinks I picked up on the weekend, there is the Chill Out flavour, which combines many of the ingredients you find in anti-energy drinks.


I love blackcurrants, especially in the form of juice. It is even better when there is 45% juice. The taste is tart with a nice minty-like hit at the start. There is also a very nice lemon taste which start to develop nicely towards the end of each sip and lasts well into the aftertaste. The cinnamon taste is weak, which I sort of like because it compliments the rest of the taste rather than dominating it.

Bottom line is, this blackcurrant juice did not disappoint, but this was more than just blackcurrant juice with its lemon, apple and cinnamon notes.


As mentioned, the active ingredients present in this drink are the same ingredients present in most anti-energy drinks so the drink does work. It kicks in around 15-20 minutes after drinking and the effects are good enough to almost put you to sleep. I say almost because unlike other anti-energy drinks, it is not as strong, but does still works fairly well.

I caution you not to drink this all at once if you are focusing on work as it will slow you down. However, it works great when you just want to relax.

Cost - $3.49
Taste - 9.9/10
Performance - 8/10

Overall - 17.9/20...awesome
