Radium Energy Powder Review

This is the latest energy powder from Harcos and it is supposed to taste like raspberry lemonade. I got this from for $1.99.


The powder is very tasteless at first, but once it starts soaking up the saliva a strong, sour lemonade flavour emerges. The raspberry comes in a lot later in the aftertaste, however, it is very mild and doesn't stand out on its own. The sour lemonade is the dominant flavour in this energy powder. I like sourness and I liked the Radium powder, but they should have called this just lemonade.

Since there is much room to hide the caffeine, a bitterness emerges in the aftertaste and lingers for a while. Don't worry, it is nothing too intense and offensive, but it can be tasted. The sourness helps hide it a bit, but it is not enough.


The effects are quick thanks to the sugar rush followed by the caffeine kick. I went from feeling sleepy from drinking too much and sleeping too much to fully awake and focused in about 5 minutes. I did not experience any jitters or urges to perform physical activities. I felt great sitting on a chair and doing some mental work.

Unfortunately since there are only 90 mg of caffeine, the kick lasts about 1.5 hours. Still, not a bad way to get a quick boost.

Cost - $1.99 from
Taste - 9/10
Energy - 6.9/10

Overall - 15.9/20...nice sour flavour with a quick, but short lasting kick
