CAFFEINE CONTENT: 220 MILLIGRAMS PER 16 OUNCE CAN.
RATING: 6.7 OUT OF 10.
If I had to name my top 5 favorite energy drink names, Slap would easily make the list. I mean, what better name for an energy drink than Slap. Need a boost before the morning jog? Slap! Want to stay awake to study for your mid-term? Slap! Think the Miami Heat are all they are cracked up to be? Slap! Seriously, the name is downright hilarious, and that's why I'm pleased to bring you my review of Slap Frost.
Slap Frost is supposed to have a unique ingredient that gives your mouth a chilling sensation that increases as you drink it. Now the only ingredient that I know of that would give that type of sensation is menthol, and that isn't on the ingredients list. And to be honest, I don't recall getting a chilling sensation in my mouth, but I am not complaining, because this drink is actually quite tasty. It's difficult to for me to describe the flavor, but most reviewers agree that it has a typical energy drink flavor. I would say this is partially true, but Slap Frost delivers more of a crisp flavor, similar to 7Up. All things considered, it's a well-crafted flavor profile.
Now it's time to take a look under the hood and see what this drink is packing: 200 percent daily value of vitamin b3, 200 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 200 percent daily value of vitamin b12, and 3,138 milligrams worth of maltodextrin, taurine, fructose, caffeine, isomaltulose, niacin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and cyanocobalamin. The caffeine content is a whopping 220 milligrams per can, 60 more than the industry average.
With 27 percent more energy than Monster based on caffeine, Slap Frost should deliver a decent punch. Unfortunately, I didn't feel a whole lot of effects. But really, this is starting to feel a bit monotonous. You see, my caffeine tolerance, as I have mentioned in countless other posts, is almost off the scale. So once again I have to say that this should definitely deliver a substantial kick to all of you energy drinkers out there. Or if you're like me, it won't do anything at all.
Overall, despite the fact that Slap Frost failed to give me loads of energy, it's still a solid energy drink. I thought the flavor was nice, albeit a bit similar to Red Bull. It also has a solid energy blend as well. Final rating? 6.7 out of 10.
