Rip It LeMoan'R

Aaah, the name. I have no words to describe the name. Seriously!

If you are wondering, I got this drink from a Target in Michigan. Some of these Rip It flavors are available in Canada, but they are rare and they are limited to the most boring and basic ones....not like this LeMoan'R.


This is essentially pink lemonade. Doesn't smell a lot like it, but if you really concentrate, you should be able to get a whiff of the raspberries. Shame. I was expecting a little more lemony aroma. 

The flavor is odd. It has a very dull starting taste and for the first quarter of the can, I was a little confused by what I was actually tasting. After that a tiny bit of berries come through and the lemon is represented by a very distant, lemon/citrus-like finishing note. Not even close to being sour enough. High fructose corn syrup is definitely the dominant flavor here.


Aside from the 50 grams of sugar, there are 160 mg of caffeine. The kick comes in fast in the form of hard-to-control jitters and is followed by a caffeine-induced need to run around in circles. This is strong stuff, but way too sloppy for mental work.

Cost - $1.09
Taste - 5.5/10
Energy - 8.3/10

Overall - 13.8/20...having a hard time calling this a lemonade
