Hansen's Energy Pro Energy Drink Review

This is one of those energy drinks that you see and hear a lot about online, but can't seem to find it in stores. At least this was my case until I came across a lonely can in an oddly shaped convenience store in Toronto.

I was very happy to have found this drink, but my happiness was cut short when I went home and thought about the "single-can" factor. Just as I thought, this drink had expired more than 2 years ago. Well, I guess I would just take a sip and go from there.


For a drink that is more than 2 years past its expiration date, it tasted pretty good. It was a bit flat, but the flavour was there. The taste was a combination of 95% mountain dew and 5% earthy tea. The drink has an initial candy-like sweetness from the mountain dew taste, but with the finish comes the earthy tone, which I assume is from the added ginkgo biloba. I wish this was not expired so that I could have drank the entire can since it tasted pretty damn good.


The can has 75 mg of caffeine, but since I promised myself not to consume something that expired more than 2 years ago. Having a caffeine content similar to that of a small can of Red Bull, I assume that the effects are similar, perhaps slightly better with all the extra ingredients.

Cost - $2.99
Taste - 8.5/10
Energy - 6/10 (estimated)

Overall - 14.5/20...tastes great and has almost as much caffeine as a can of Red Bull
