Base Energy Drink Blue Ice

You know how blue Monster is the sugar-free version of the regular Monster? Well, for the longest time I thought that this Base energy drink followed the same label logic, but it doesn't. This energy drink is actually blue in color...oh yeah.


The blue liquid has a sweet tropical smell and reminds me a lot of a blue Gatorade. The flavor starts off with a huge citric bite, followed by a very sweet blue Gatorade/tropical fruit blend and finishes on a medium citrus note. Very unique and very enjoyable. Also, though each sip is sweet, the sweetness never builds up to critical levels even after the entire can is consumed.


There are 160 mg of caffeine in the can and the effects become apparent quickly thanks to all the sugar. I was awake and a little jittery within 5-10 minutes. In another 15-20 minutes, the jitters died down and I was fully wired.

Overall, this is a unique and great tasting energy drink with an impressive kick. Unfortunately, I have only seen this drink for sale in Quebec and I don't go there very often.

Cost - 2 for $4
Taste - 9/10
Energy - 8.2/10

Overall - 17.2/20...unique taste, decent kick
