Hype Energy AfterDark Cinnamon Syndrome 45C
Last week I received a package of Hype Energy’s bold new flavor AfterDark energy drink for tasting. This limited edition AfterDark Cinnamon Syndrome 45C brings a mix of bold cinnamon and pepper flavor. According to Hype’s website, “coming up with a one-of-a kind recipe this delicious is no easy task. Our team brainstormed and underwent 45 different trials until finding the perfect concoction of cinnamon and pepper for this energy drink.” I love the skull design on the can and the use of colors to bring out the dark side.
There’s a lightly pleasant cinnamon aroma coming out of the can right after you open it. The color and the texture looked similar to any other energy drinks that are out there in the market. As for the taste, it is recommended that in order to get the best out of the AfterDark flavor is to make some cocktails out of it. For me, I like it to taste it on its own rather than as a mixer. The first sip tasted sweet and sour with strong spicy aftertaste. If you could taste all that in the first sip, you know the drink has a strong flavor. After couple more sips, you could really feel the spiciness in your throat and the strong sour taste that comes with it. Also the energy kicks in immediately after just few sips. After chugging down one third of the can, your throat you could feel the same burning sensation that you get from taking an alcohol shot. In the beginning I wasn’t fond of this taste due to its strong sweet, sour and spicy taste, but once you get used to it, it wasn’t bad at all. It actually has a unique taste to it.
