Pac-Man Power Up Energy Drink - Five Below : The Gallery, Philadelphia, PA

Power Up Energy Drink
- Five Below : The Gallery, Philadelphia, PA
I finally got to see Wreck it Ralph the other night, and I thought… what better time to review these drinks?
Today I’ll be trying Pac-Man Power Up Energy Drink.
Everything about this can’s design is so nostalgic and sweet, it makes me want to go play the game! (I own the old school Nintendo version and a Plug-n-play version.) The can features Inky, Pinky, Blinky, and Clyde as well as Pac-Man. The only gripe I have, is that I have no idea what flavor it is going to be. The only possible hint might be the Pac-Man cherries featured on the front, but that might just be part of the design.
This is a novelty drink, so my expectations were very low. When I popped the can open I was expecting a sickening smell, but it actually smelled fruity and sweet! As I poured it I saw that it was a pink/red color! The smell and look of this beverage was similar to Cherry 7-Up, which I wasn’t expecting at all.
I normally hate the taste of energy drinks, but this was really fruity and delightful! The flavor is definitely cherry, and I was shocked that I could taste a real cherry flavor. (Not artificial, but actual cherry juice!)
As  an energy drink, I did feel a boost of energy after drinking it, but I wasn’t bouncing off the walls. (Like I did with the Rock Star Iced Tea I drank earlier this year.) It has a bit of an energy-drink-aftertaste, but the cherry hides it well.
I was really surprised by how much I enjoyed this beverage! I would definitely buy this again if I needed a little pick me up.
