Full Throttle Mother- strangely does not taste like moms

Full Throttle Mother review
Today we’re trying out Full Throttle Mother, just in time for this semester’s first round of exams! This is the latest in the Full Throttle energy drink lineup from Coca-Cola. The drink is Acai Berry flavored and boasts “Energy from Natural Sources”. A quick run through the ingredients shows its got Ginseng extract, Caffeine and Guarana extract along with vitamins b3, b6, b12 and E. Pretty stereotypical energy drink ingredients. The difference here is Coca-Cola uses 40% fruit juice(apple, pear and blueberry).

Ok, for some reason, I bought this without reading the actual flavor of the drink. Regular Full Throttle and Full Throttle Fury don’t have flavors. From their names, I guess they’re supposed to taste like angry car parts. Well, after drinking half of it, I finally noticed the small silver print at the bottom denoting the Acai Berry Flavor. Acai is the latest new product of the antioxidant craze. The only other Acai Berry flavored anything I’ve had was Emergen-C and I hated it. Think blueberry flavoring but more tart. Now turn that into a syrup and use a little too much of it. It’s a bit too overpowering for my tastes.

Acai aside, the fruit juices make FT Mother much smoother than other energy drinks, even though it is carbonated. This is very welcome in my opinion. When I buy an energy drink, its usually because I’m ridiculously tired and it’s usually in the morning. I hate how most energy drinks burn the hell out of your throat with the carbonation. Especially when you’re trying to chug it on the run.

Overall- I think I’d like this much more if it wasn’t Acai Berry. I’d still probably drink it in a pinch because of the juice in it. Energy drinks are usually more for utility than taste anyways. Still, kind of disappointed it didn’t taste like moms…
