eRev Obscene Energy is a smaller known supplement made by an oil company. Yeah, I’m not kidding. Now I’ve had some bad experiences with unknown brands of beverages, like Gazzu. I’ve also had some rather enjoyable supplements attained through taking risks, namely with Venom. So is eRev a horrible concoction or a wonderful discovery?
Straight from the can:
WARNING! This can contains enough energy to raise your intensity to a whole new level! When you’re out of fuel and need a quick fillup, open a can of eREV Obscene Energy Drink. The high-octaine combination of taurine and vitamin B12 will jumpstart your engine into hyperdrive. Then, the harcore driving buzz will take you from empty to extreme in no time. Ask yourself this first:
Can you handle the rush?
Have you ever smelled something that you swear you know what it is but you can’t quite put your finger on it so you ask your friends and they all say something different from what you’re thinking and you don’t agree with any of them? that’s the exact experience you’ll find with eRev. I thought it smelled like marshmallows. My girlfriend thought it smelled like cream soda. Some other people thought it smelled like fruit. So have no idea what it smells like. But I do know that it smells sweet and delicious.
The taste is very reminiscent of Full Throttle, only a little bit sweeter and slightly less salty. Is it better? Not exactly, but it’s still pretty good. It also has that feeling of familiarity that you just can’t place your finger on. Regardless, it’s a smooth, sweet taste that leaves no aftertaste or medicinal burn.
On the kick frontier eRev performs decently, but not excellently. While it does deliver a positive kick that doesn’t leave you shaky and awkward feeling, the kick is somewhat subtle. You’ll feel it, but it’s very slight and not all that satisfying.
Obscene Energy comes in your standard 16 oz can but for a value price of around $1.79, and with the industry standard seeming to move to $2.13 for some reason this brings the value up considerably.
Obscene is a good drink that I can recommend to anyone who likes to try new energy drinks. It has a familiar taste that closely resembles some of the big name drinks but doesn’t slaughter it like the Monster rip-off known as Gazzu did. Man that stuff sucks. Anyway, the only thing that really annoys me is the extremely generic tribal tattoo design all over the can. Lame.
