28 Black Classic Energy Drink

I found this drink at the local Sobeys grocery store for $1.69. The regular price was $2.99, but there was a sale going on.


You'd be right to label this as another Red Bull clone, because not only does it scream clone from the outside, it is almost a clone on the inside as 75% on the inside. Sure, there is no taurine and the color is paler than the regular Red Bull, but the smell and taste are almost bang on. I say 75%, because the sweetness feels rounder, is dialled down a notch, there is a citric bite at the end and an interesting creamy-like start...but the base flavor is definitely that of a Red Bull.


Yup, there are 80 mg of caffeine in this can and the effects are the same as a can of Red Bull. You chug it, the sugar quickly hits you, you get jittery for a bit, then the caffeine make you overenergized and an hour and a half later you feel about the same as before you had the drink.

Cost - $1.69
Taste - 8.5/10 (still love the taste, though)
Energy - 6/10

Overall - 14.5/20...still love the taste
