I opened this earlier today:
Brand: Root Jack Orange Flavored Root Beer Pirate Energy Drink.
Origin: Mishawaka, IN.
Purchase Place: Blue Sun Soda, Bloomington, MN.
Sweetener: High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Review: This is labeled a "pirate energy drink," so I was a little concerned. It has your daily allowance of vitamin C to "keep scurvy in check," so that's good. It has quillaja which Google tells me is sometimes used to help with foam in root beer. And it has caffeine and guarana seed extract which are both stimulants. I also found online that it has 10 mg of caffeine/oz, so this bottle had 120 mg of caffeine!
But on to the flavor. It's not great. It has that energy drink chemically-ness to it. The orange flavor with the root beer isn't bad - that's actually kinda fun. If you like energy drinks, then you might like this. If you don't then you might want to steer away from this one. Not bad, totally unique, but not great.
Score: 5.5 out of 10.
