So I’m cruising the beverage aisle at my local discount store as I do every few weeks and this bright cool looking Neutron Energy Drink can grabs my eye.

A new energy drink? As I pick up this Neutron energy, I also notice it has two brothers, Citrus and Citrus sugar free. I'll just stick to the original for this review because you know if the original will passes the test, then the flavored ones will just take it to that next level.

No need to break out the chemistry set to break down this neutron, my taste buds should do just fine…


As I crack the top, I get an interesting scent, a mixture of traditional energy drink scent mixed with a bit of a citrus scent, neither good nor bad, just different. Neutron is original, yet it had a very much citrus taste to it with a bit bitter/sour hint. The carbonation is just about right. I expected the taste to be the standard energy drink flavoring, yet Neutron did create a unique solid flavor.

Neutron Energy Drink Ingredients

Inside the can you will find 220 calories and a solid 56g of sugar. Besides all that sugar, the Neutron energy boost is made up of 2000mg Taurine, 200mg Inositol, 52g Potassium, 180mg Caffeine and 20mg Guarana Extract. Also included is 200% of your vitamins B2, B6, B12 and folic acid.


This type of neutron is nothing to mess with. The energy rush hit me very quickly. The sugar fueled rush had me going within 10 minutes although bit jittery, yet then just when you’d expect the sugar rush to drop off, the mixture of Taurine and Caffeine kept a less jittery rush lasting for nearly 3 hours. Many energy drinks build their boost around lots of sugar or an energy blend, yet Neutron combines both giving you a quick boost with the sugar and a sustaining boost with the energy blend.

Neutron Energy Verdict

Purchasing this drink I must say I didn’t have very high expectations. Yet just when you think you can tell an energy drink from its can, one comes along that changes that theory. Neutron Energy Drink's refreshing taste mixed with an above average energy boost will definitely have me reaching for another Neutron and I'm excited to taste the rest of their flavor line.
