AMP Strawberry Limeade Review

This Strawberry Limeade is part of the new AMP flavors that are only available in the US. I bought it on sale for 2 for $3 from a 7-11 in Michigan.


The aroma screams strawberry, but does contain subtle lime notes. For some reason it also smelled like Coke/Sprite combo to me. The flavor starts off on a light, creamy lime note with the strawberry note following it and lingering well into the finish. The drink is not overly sweet but it slowly builds up, giving the aftertaste a candy-like strawberry sweetness after a third of the can.

Overall, the flavor is fairly light and drinks a lot like a soft drink than an energy drink. Very inoffensive taste with not one flavor that is truly dominant.


There are 157 mg of caffeine and the can and the effects are a lot like any other sugary energy drink. Jitters kick in within minutes making your legs shake and your mind race while the caffeine takes its sweet time, but lasts for 3-4 hours. I did not experience a crash at the end, but I did consume this first thing in the morning after a good night's sleep. I bet you if you have this later on in the day, there will be a crash after a few hours.

Cost - 2 for $3 at 7-11 in Michigan
Taste - 8/10
Energy - 8.1/10

Overall - 16.1/20...light, inoffensive taste with a decent kick for the right price
