EASE IN ACQUISITION—6
Less common than some Wired products, which is unusual, considering it’s the sugar free version of the original—which is also harder to find than most. All I can tell you is that if you’re near a WinCo store, you can find it there. Otherwise…good luck.
Not often that I see silver and white favor an energy drink’s appearance, but in this case, it does. Don’t ask me how; I still can’t quite place my finger on why—the silver flames, white background, and red font somehow look nice together. Maybe because it reminds me of peppermint….
I didn’t plan on enjoying Wired Sugar Free as much as I did—the original was just a Red Bull clone, and even though I do like the flavor, I wasn’t jumping out of my seat for joy as I drank it. The diet version here is nice, though—well balanced in terms of the complex combinations of flavors that make up the traditional energy drink flavor, with a blend of artificial sweeteners that actually manages to bring out said balance and make the drink a smooth experience.
Not bad—just average. A healthy degree of alertness is about all you get, which under some circumstances, I can appreciate.
Wired Sugar Free delivered about 2½ hours of efficacy—which is not shoddy, but not exactly spectacular, either.
THE DRINK OVERALL—7.67
In terms of taste, I quite enjoyed Wired Sugar Free, and actually ranks pretty high when compared to the majority of Red Bull clones. Kick, however, is more standard, which I almost expect given the caffeine content. I don’t know how I’d feel about the flavor after drinking two cans, but that’s just might be what needs to happen if you find yourself in a high energy-requiring situation and you select Wired Sugar Free as your beverage of choice.
