AMP Blueberry White Grape Energy Drink

And my review of the new AMP flavors comes to an end with the Blueberry White Grape concoction. At the time of this review, these new flavors are only available in the US.


This AMP flavor has a very cool pale blue color that looks like a blue Gatorade Rain. It oozes of sweet blueberry notes while the white grape only makes a brief appearance on the nose. The blueberry also dominates the flavor profile from start to finish. The white grape flavor is very subtle at first and completely overpowered by the sweet blueberries. But after a few sips, a middle profile starts to build up that is mostly comprised of semi-sweet white grape notes. After a quarter of the can the flavor changes to blueberry at the start, white grape in the middle and a medley of blueberry and white grape notes at the finish. The aftertaste is predominantly blueberries at first, but some subtle white grape hints are also present.


There are 157 mg of caffeine in the can and the effects are rather quick. I was greeted by a wave of jitters within 5-10 minutes of consuming a third of the can, which is a bit odd since there are no sugar in this drink. Unfortunately took another 10 minutes or so for my brain to catch up, wake up and start focusing on the tasks at hand. A short time thereafter, the caffeine kicked in and I was very energetic. The effects lasted for several hours and I did not experience a crash at the end. Pretty good stuff.

Cost - 2 for $3
Taste - 8.5/10
Energy - 8.1/10

Overall - 16.6/20...mostly blueberry flavors, energy is good
