Pure Cofain 699 Energy Drink Review

pure-cofainSo I heard I was getting Pure Cofain energy drink in the post from Germany (Oh, how excited I was!).

It arrived in a crushed box (thanks DHL) and from then on everything else was perfect.

I opened the box and found 24 cans of Pure Cofain floating around, I think I might have cried with happiness. So I cracked the first can open and gave it a sniff, I couldn’t work out what it smelt like so I took the most important sip of any energy drink… the first.

Taste

I still don’t know what to say about the flavor I mean I like it, for some reason it reminds me of coffee and Coca-Cola mixed together. That’s about as close as I’ve ever got to describing it. That or it tastes like how coffee smells. I tried to work out what I was reading, but as everything on Pure Cofain 699 was all in German, I’m not to sure. All I can say is that the taste is a love or hate thing which is amusing as it’s the same color as Marmite.

Ingredients

Okay I’m going to be frank here I have no idea as it’s all in German, however, I can deduce that the 250ml can has 175mg of caffeine in it or 699mg per liter which is the reason for the 699 on the can. Apart from that I think its sugar free but that’s as far as I go.

Effect

Pure Cofain says in a nice white box on the front ‘ACHTUNG! STARK KOFFEINHALTIG’ or, (Attention! a lot of Caffeine). That’s correct it does have a lot of caffeine in it and I felt it. Okay I admit one can had a pretty good effect, but I was really a busy bee after 2 cans.

I didn’t feel the best I’ve ever felt, but it was great. I didn’t really experience a down side although about 12 hours later I became quite sleepy. Otherwise it’s a pretty solid kick from a little black can.

Verdict

Pure Cofain 699 is a pretty solid drink, it’s simplistic can does the job. It’s a no frills drink, not like Relentless who have a graphics department the size of China. This drink is all about the drink it’s self and it’s pretty awesome. If you can find it, I recommend you try it. It’s something different and I reckon it would do great as a mixer.

    Wouldn’t recommend clicking that Marmite link. When I closed that site it started launching IE windows rapid-fire and crashed my browser.
