|Unfortunately, this drink did not actually make me want to put on a leather bikini thing.|
Anyway, I dodged all the brand-new freshmen and their parents crowding this campus to find an energy drink I've never tried. Now, technically the classic orange NOS is my default for SERIOUS projects like overnight writing or driving. But there was a flavor I hadn't tried, so here we are. It's cherry. Excuse me: Loaded Cherry. I don't like real cherries, but I do like candy that tastes like "cherries" often, so we'll see how this goes and whether or not I ever sleep again. The can promises "enhanced mental focus," which is what I need right now, so it better not be lying.
FLAVOR: Okay, good. It tastes like a fruit punch-type "cherry" rather than a cough medicine-type cherry flavor. As it's gotten warmer, it kind of tastes like a melty red popsicle. Not a bad flavor.
EFFICACY: It's a NOS, so of course this shit is serious. I'm nearly halfway through, and I feel somewhat more focused, but I feel like it probably hasn't really hit me yet. I'm nearly done with it now, but I've been drinking it quite slowly. I feel more energetic and focused, but haven't experienced the jitters or rush I usually get with a NOS.
I would recommend the "Loaded Cherry" NOS. Not as intense as I expected, but still effective for concentration.
