Venom Mojave Rattler Review

I bought a can of this from Meijer's in Auburn Hills and no, they are not yet sold in Canada.


Yuuup, purple can = grape flavour. The taste is fairly generic with a sweet grape punch which builds over time to become a too overly sweet for me. Since this is a low calorie drink, the flavour profile is different and there is a bit of that tongue ticking carbonation at the start and a lot of sweetener throughout. Surprisingly the aftertaste does not have as intense of a sweetener taste as I expected.

Overall, this is a very generic tasting low calorie energy drink.


There are 160 mg of caffeine in the can, which is typical for a drink of this size. There isn't a strong initial kick due to the lack of sugar, but there is just enough to give you a bump in the first 10 minutes. It works especially well if you are waking up in a zombie-like state.

The real kick comes in the next 15-20 minutes and is very brutish. There is no build up to it, it just comes. And that's great if you need energy to do something physical, but I found it unrefined if you are trying to focus on reading.

The energy lasts for 3-4 hours and there isn't a noticeable crash at the end.

Cost - unsure
Taste - 6.5/10
Energy - 8/10

Overall - 14.5/20...generic tasting, typical kick for a drink of this size
