Kronik Vengence Energy Drink

Kronik is an energy drink that has been on the market for quite sometime and just when you think the company is getting stale, they surprise us with a few new flavors.

Even though by looking and reading the can I have no idea what flavor Kronik Vengence is, you can tell they mean business, so is Kronik back with a vengence (sorry for the pun) or will I be left deflated?

Taste

As I pop the top, I get that all to familiar energy drink scent that is associated with all those cheap Red Bull knockoffs. As I take a sip, I find a very sweet drink. The carbonation of Kronik Vengence is slightly higher then I would prefer, but nowhere near unbearable.

I can’t really put my finger on the flavor, but it’s kind of a generic taste, very sweet with no aftertaste. In no way was the taste negative, however, I just didn’t feel that Vengence was anything special.

Kronik Vengence Ingredients

Each can contains 220 calories and 54 grams of sugar. Also packed in each can is 150mg Caffeine, 2000mg Taurine, 100mg Ginseng, 100mg Guarana, 50mg Ginko Biloba, 50mg Inositol, 150mg Glucuronolactone, 50mg Milk Thistle, and a slight amount of your B vitamins with a hint of vitamin C.

Effect

The effect of Vengence was exactly what I was looking for in an energy drink. After drinking the can, I felt my energy rush within about 5-8 minutes. A Little bit of a jittery sugar fed rush, but it wasn’t crazy. The boost easily lasted 3 1/2 hours before slowly dissolving. Kronik Vengence gave me a slight to no real crash.

Verdict

This wasn’t the best tasting energy drink I’ve ever had, but would consider it an average to slightly above average taste. Even though the taste of Kronik Vengence didn’t blow my socks off, the energy rush definitely did. The barbed wire look of Vengence portrays this as a serious energy drink and the effects of all that caffeine and sugar definitely support that look with a boost that will get you through even the toughest grind.

    I see Kronik all over the web, but it’s nearly impossible to find in my area. All I have in the collection is the sugar-free one (which was terrible), and Grind (which was awesome). Anyone know where to find them in the NE Pennsylvania/Southern NY area? (That’s “upstate” NY to you NYC folk…)

    You can order them by the case from their site, but it would suck if you ordered a whole case and you hated it…

  • Tim

    Yeah, that’s the problem with most brands’ online shops…they only offer bulk. Sucks for collectors, and definitely sucks if you hate it like you said.

    A local-ish grocery store chain in my area called Quillins used to have 3 types of Krokik. The Blue Citrus flavor which was awesome, the diet version which was alright, and Grind was was also great. Kind of a let down to know their new flavor is a genericy Red Bull ripoff.

  • A while back Kronik went into foreclosure. It was recently bought by new owners and their line up revamped. http://www.bevnet.com/news/2009/11-10-2009-kronik_energy_new_owners

    They are slowly getting their distribution back up and should soon be easier to find

    Kinda off subject, but I heard Bawls went under as well. I noticed my local target never has them anymore, but tons of sites still sell it, and the website is still up. Does anyone know if they actually went out of business?

    For all those GRIND lovers, VENGENCE tastes identical but with more kick. Also now in a LOW CARB version as well. DELICIOUS!!!!
