RATING: 8.4 OUT OF 10.

I have only reviewed 12 low-calorie drinks along with there sugary brothers. Of those 12, 6 have received the same or better rating as there sugary counterparts. The main reason for this is the kick. Rockstar adds 240 milligrams of caffeine in their low carb drink as opposed to the 160 milligrams you will find in the original. As with Monster Lo-Carb, I enjoyed the smoothness of the flavor and it lacked that syrupy Monster taste. So is Kronik Low Carb better then regular Kronik? Let's find out. First of all, the can color is what you would expect. Instead of being black and blue, it is now silver and blue. The original looks better, but I don't buy energy drinks for looks. Kronik says this is sweetened with Splenda, and while there was some artificial sweetener flavor coming through, the citrus flavor still stayed mostly intact. However, if both the sugar and sugar free version were not energy drinks, I would choose the sugary version. Kronik also upped there Unrelenting Energy blend by adding the following ingredients: 100 milligrams of l-tyrosine, 100 milligrams of grape seed extract, 100 milligrams of licorice root extract, 100 milligrams of ginger root extract, and 20 milligrams of l-carnitine. This means the energy blend goes from 13 ingredients and 2,920 milligrams to 18 ingredients and 3,440 milligrams. It is actually considered a thermal because it supposedly boosts metabolism. It can also suppress hunger, but that statement was not evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Thankfully my hunger was not suppressed one bit. So you may be wondering, does this extra 500+ milligrams of energy blend do any good? As far as I can tell, yes it does. In 10 minutes I was buzzing good for about 45 minutes, lip-singing to the songs on Madden 09. Then the effect dropped to a medium-light kick that lasted for another few hours until the whole thing tapered off altogether. So I guess the only left to do is answer the question I asked in the beginning of the review. The answer is yes and no. Yes, Kronik Blue Citrus Low Carb does have a better kick than Kronik Blue Citrus. No, Blue Citrus Low Carb does not taste better than Blue Citrus. Still, it has an overall rating of 8.4 out of 10, 2 tenths better than the original.
