Advantages Cheap. Great energy boost. twice the size of a red bull
Disadvantages Mega Crash. High jitter content, lots of sugar.
Relentless RamblingSo, it has been a long few months since last I reviewed the crap out of anything. I find myself with a moment spare between holidays, performing in burlesque shows, working constantly and partying hard. All the Christmas shopping has been done (finished on the 30th of November, which I recommend everyone try once as it’s a tonne of fun watching everyone else run round like headless chickens for the whole month) and all the presents are wrapped and under the tree (ok, slight lie, two tiny ones to go, I’ll do those later). All I have left to do today is ponder my last day of work tomorrow before a week off. The joy.
My work, in high Christmas spirits, have decided that they will be closing early on Christmas eve and we all get to go home at 4 instead of 8. My work, more in line with Scrooge than, say, Jesus, have also decided that since they are closing we all get to change our 11:30 start time to 8am. This makes me go into a bit of a panic. Partly because I will have to get up at 7am and I likely won’t be going to bed till 3am and partly because they are also making us take a half hour lunch. Why is this of any consequence? Well, it takes half an hour to get to Tesco and back and Tesco (amongst others) is where my unending supply of energy comes from in the form of Relentless.No half measures
Relentless, for those of you who didn’t know, is an energy drink. One that is capable of giving an elephant a heart attack from just one can. (That’s not been proven, but Christ this stuff works). Each can contains 500ml (which is double that of Red Bull) and if Red Bull gives you wings, this stuff rips your face off, sticks you on the back of a space shuttle and blows your ass to outer space.I first discovered Relentless when my friend brought a can to work. I had had a horrible sleep the night before and was falling asleep at my desk. Having ran out of pro plus and having no money for the coffee machines, she offered me this golden elixir. I was impressed.
In your mouthFlavour wise this stuff is brilliant. There are four flavours so if one doesn’t tickle your taste buds, another might just do the job for you. There is “Origin” (the original flavour in a brown can) which tastes almost the exact same as Red Bull, a flavour I am at a loss to describe. A friend once described it as drinking battery acid that has been in the sun too long. I would have to say that it’s the tastiest batter acid I’ve ever drank!
Next there is “Inferno” which is a fizzy orange with a slight spicy kick to it (I might just be imagining that though) and is packed in an orange can. The fore mentioned friend was shocked when he took a sip of it proclaiming it tasted like juice and that it is surely impossible for something to give you energy if it doesn’t taste like a kick in the face. Or something to that effect.The Green can is “Juiced Energy” and is a tropical fruit take on Relentless and the Red can (also called “Juiced Energy”) is another fruity version but with berries instead.
