Some of you may have read my previous post about Coke’s Vault energy drink. Many Surge drinkers have (myself included) have suggested that Vault is simply a repackaged Surge.
Well, the other day I was leaving a quickie-mart and noticed the new Vault – Red Blitz. Over the last couple of months I’ve kinda lost my taste for the regular Vault, but hey, it’s a new red drink. And after all, red is my favorite flavor. 😛 mmmmmm….red…..
I’m pretty sure this is Coke’s response to Pepsi’s Mountain Dew Code Red. I’m not a big fan of Code Red though. I love the Mountain Dew (out of the necessity of lots of sugar and caffeine in the morning). But, I gotta say, I really like the new Red Blitz. It has a very strawberry flavor with a hint of cherry. Normally, I don’t like strawberry drinks, but this one is good. It’s very sweet though. So unless you having a raging sweet tooth like me, you might find it a bit too much. But hey, it is an “energy drink” lol.
As for it’s energy boost, it seems to pack as much as the regular vault. But then again I have so much Mountain Dew built up in my system, it’s hard for me to really judge a “regular” energy drink’s buzz factor. Overall, unless I burn myself out on it, I think I’d rather have a Red Blitz than a Dew. Blasphemy, I know lol.
I give the new Vault – Red Blitz a 4 out of 5.
