I must say, I’ve really enjoyed Bing energy drink so far. The two flavors I’ve tried, basic cherry and apple, have been sweet and full of energy. But what happens when I try a flavor I’ve haven’t tried featuring a fruit I don’t generally enjoy? Will the world as we know it cease to exist? Probably not, but let’s find out. Today we’re taking a look at Bing Black, the blackberry flavor of Bing. No, I don’t generally enjoy blackberries. So sue me. Well, actually please don’t.
How Does It Look?
If nothing else, Bing Black has what I consider to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing cans on the shelf. Each flavor has a different color and style, yet each is eye catching and doesn’t have too much going on. However, with all the types of cans I’ve seen, Bing Black might be my favorite so far. Just look at it! It looks classy, yet sophisticated. And you can’t say that about too many things that only cost a few bucks at the supermarket.
How Does It Taste?
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room here. The elephant I foreshadowed in my opening paragraph. The complicated tale of my relationship with blackberries. Maybe it’s my general lack of healthy diet or the fact that I need to give them another try now that I’m older, but I’ve never been a huge fan. Well, Bing Black may just have changed that. You see, the blackberry taste isn’t too strong, meaning it doesn’t overpower the general Bing flavor. If you’ve been skeptical of blackberries before, Bing Black is a great spokesman..or spokescan.
How’s The Energy?
While I’ve loved most everything about Bing, I can admit that the energy might be its weakest point. Don’t get me wrong, it’s got a good amount of energy. However, Bing is not quite on the level of some of the big names such as Red Bull or Monster. While it’s not going to have you bouncing off the walls, it will give you a good energy boost. And if that means not compromising the flavor, I’d say it’s worth it.
Do I Recommend It?
I truly believe Bing to be rising to the rank of one of my favorite energy drink brands. The appearance is memorable and unique. Every flavor I’ve tried has been sweet and delicious. And, while it didn’t completely quench my constant need for energy, it gave me just enough of a boost to get some work done. I mean, I finished this review, didn’t I?
