Sonic Red Bull Cherry Limeade Slush Review!

Sonic Red Bull Cherry Limeade Slush Review!


Hello everyone, this is energy crisis the energy drink report Well, hello ladies and gentlemen, and Everyone watching this as energy crisis the energy drink report our energy drink review series and let’s get right into business So sonic has some new drinks out Specifically around the Memorial Day weekend coming up as everyone likes to say the unofficial start of the summer season, you know Just hopefully some good weather Going out just enjoying the weekend maybe going to a barbecue or you know, maybe going outside listening a shortwave radio like I do every day, but you know what I mean and You might say well, what is a good drink to have while you’re you’re outside? Basking in the Sun I’ll let you answer that one Exactly Red Bull and Sonic was on the same page as you because they said they know you They know what you crave. What you like to drink what you like to guzzle down by Mass large quantity won’t give any numbers there and they teamed up with Red Bull. They said ok We’re gonna be doing these red ball slushes So it’s gonna be like they’re you know They’re frozen Slushies of the shaved ice and all that good stuff and they have it in two flavors one is it’s gonna be Red Bull It’s gonna be like a Red Bull pour it into this shaved ice Obviously, I’m sure with some sugar added and then the second one is their classic cherry limeade with some red Bull added So that’s what we’re left with before anything else price for this $3 99 So I could easily blow At least I think this let me see what it came out to 7 bucks what came out too for each one, so Keep that in mind pretty sure let me see. That doesn’t really the math doesn’t make much sense I’m doing this. Ok, see Okay, so this is how they did it right It was actually around $3 each that makes more sense than of tax and all the other expenses Okay, so it’s actually around $3 each price can vary though I’ve seen cases where it was at 399 each But sometimes will be $3 350 so on and so forth. All right before anything else I want to give a few quick shout outs to Thomas Forbes, The Trees Network, David James Jacob Lindsey and also to Kaely they are all supporters at patreon.com/thereportoftheweek it’s a really good Avenue to be able to support this YouTube channel the Podcasts the radio show you want to keep this going really quick great way to do it and then we have some good exciting features Coming up.

Well since we’re at this part of things already For the heck of it If you want check out the newest podcast youtube.com/vorwpodcast good show coming up this this week. So it’s worth listening to Okay You you don’t even want to know the absolute disaster It was trying to get each of these poured out because they don’t come in these fancy drink To call this fancy, you know what? I mean? They come in these right? And of course that’s cool. You know, it’s at the sonic insignia there and all that good stuff, but Advertised it’s shown in a clear receptacle And I thought that would be cool to have each one, you know nice and clear like that So this is this is them let’s get that picture-perfect moment going It’s good enough, I think this is the red ball one the classic red plastic And then that’s the cherry limeade one right there so I mean pretty much it’s not like there’s any Crazy, the cherry limeade one is red And then the red ball one is kind of this off-white with maybe a little bit of yellow kind of like my tie They’re not quite us right and compare them I may be part of the tie but not the entire thing, but it was a disaster trying to get these poured out I don’t even want to think about it it was It was a nightmare that’s without exaggeration All right. I’m gonna try out the original Red Bull one first Then will I just talk about it a little bit then we’ll try out the cherry limeade and then we’ll wrap things up So we’re gonna try out the original red ball slush from Sonic Going in Very refreshing very refreshing One thing that I did notice with it. It’s not as carbonated as most like a standard Red Bull is like if you’re a Energy drink connoisseur, right? I mean you know that a lot of energy drinks are very highly carbonated you have this wave of the effervescence that just hits you all the bubbles popping everywhere. It’s like an explosion in your mouth This does not have any of that carbonation. It’s very sweet. It tastes I mean, it would really taste like a Red Bull with just in shaved ice Okay, if you leave it out for a bit. It could get watered-down keep that in mind But otherwise it has the exact potency and flavor of a Red Bull which is really unique to its own Has that sweetness a little bit of a soda type of flavor, you know, the flavor of a Red Bull though is very unique So you can just describe it as tasting like Red Bull But it lacks that carbonation. That’s one thing to keep in mind very refreshing though I see what they’re going for something to drink like on a hot day, you know tuned into Radio Romania international on the shortwave, you know, you’re out at the beach getting that good reception and All that good stuff and it’s a refreshing thing. You know, you’re out there mowing the lawn or something It’s refreshing and I imagine it is caffeinated gives you that little bit of a boost as well next we’re gonna try the cherry limeade one thing that’s different and Gonna stir it up good for you. The one thing that’s Mentionable right here. It does not have because I like getting the cherry limeade. That’s my favorite drink from Sonic I know I don’t get the ocean water like everyone else does but I Get the cherry limeade I get some wings and get the cherry limeade This doesn’t come with any cherries or limes in it But I guess it’s the same type of flavor with the Red Bull mixed in I’m gonna try that now for you You know what? It tastes like so this one is going in and then I’m going to independently give each one Its own rating because it’s like two and one for the most part two different items you could buy each individually so it’s not like you have to get both of these and Like that why you don’t have to you could just get the Red Bull one or the cherry limeade or both or dozen of each? Whatever you want to do. It’s your life I’m just trying to overcome the experience, you know of pouring these it was a It was an experience. Alright, it was it was a That’s all I can say Hmm I have one little complaint about this one. It’s very similar to how the other one was with the Red Bull flavor, you know No carbonation the whole nine yards there. No cherry limeade Very much on the cherry side but cherry limeade Where is that? Tang that tartness that you would expect from the line it’s not there if they said this is just cherry Red Bull Okay, that’s absolutely what it is But cherry limeade so you expect as a result. I mean, I think this is great, right? I think it tastes fine I like the the sweetness has a lot of sweetness behind it has that cherry flavor that’s there as well works. Great I mean, it blends actually very nicely with the Red Bull and It’s very pleasant to drink. I’m sure high in sugar but not bad at all. But here’s the one thing Cherry limeade, there’s no lime in it. That’s the one issue that I have with this drink So I think there’s an issue with the marketing. I think there’s they should have called it just cherry Red Bull We’re some variant whatever sounds best for the marketing team because there’s no lime in it at all. And that’s an issue so I’m just saying that if you know my favorite part of the cherry limeade is the cherry no doubt about it, but If you’re one of the people that likes the lime flavor You’re gonna be let down. You’re gonna be disappointed and you’re gonna be Probably trying to shove this pane of glass out the window as we speak because you’re gonna be saying where is the lime? I don’t taste it at all. So that’s gonna be an issue. So keep that in mind Alright price for these with around three dollars each rating for the original Red Bull one. I’m gonna be giving a 5 out of 10 Very average for the most part, but it’s exactly as marketed and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with it refreshing tastes pretty good that’s when the cherry why I made one that’s gonna be a 4 out of 10 just a little bit below average because of the marketing if it was market marketed as Regular cherry, I would give it an above average rating But I’m not letting any personal bias get in the way. It’s not what they marketed Marketed it as but if you do just like the cherry flavor, then you’re gonna enjoy it But if you like that Lime mixed in there, you’ll be disappointed So that’s why that that’s why it has the rating that it has. That’s all that I have for you I’m your host the report of the week.
