Red Thunder Energy Review

10:52 AM by Matt ·
Labels:
As you can see by the name of the drink, Red Thunder is a Red Bull clone. I picked it up at an Aldi's store in a 4 pack for $3.20 (Tax included). $3.20 for 4 energy drinks isn't a bad deal and Aldi's is well known for not only making knock-off brands but for also making them the exact same thing as the name brand, ingredients and all. For the most part, that's the case with Red Thunder. I picked up a 4 pack and decided to see if it was worth buying again in the future as a cheaper alternative to Red Bull






The Can:
The picture above and the actual cans I bought have the "new and improved" design on them. Red Thunder used to have a different can design that was mainly blue and red. The new design is alright but it looks kind of odd on an 8 oz. can. 8 oz. is smaller than a regular can of soda and these days most energy drinks come in 16 oz. cans. Still, Red Bull usually comes in an 8 oz. can so it makes sense that Red Thunder does too. The design looks sort of cheap but it informs you of the product and does what it's supposed to do.

The Drink:
I've reviewed about three Red Bull "clones" in the past but none of them actually tasted 100% like Red Bull. They all had very, very similar flavors to Red Bull but weren't quite as smooth. That isn't the case with Red Thunder because Red Thunder is Red Bull. There's no difference whatsoever, it's the same drink. It tastes the exact same and has the same amount of carbonation. If you've had Red Thunder you've had Red Bull and vice versa. If you've never had Red Bull, it's a strong tasting drink with a nice kiwi flavor. If you're reading my website you've most likely had Red Bull though.

The Buzz:
Red Thunder also contains the same ingredients as Red Bull. The only exception is that Red Thunder has Niacin and Red Bull doesn't. So, you're getting the same energy buzz as you would with Red Bull too. A can of Red Thunder contains 75 mg of Caffeine, it also contains Taurine, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Pantothemic Acid. I drank two cans of Red Thunder right after each other and noted a nice lift in energy. One small can of Red Thunder doesn't seem to provide me with any energy but if I drink two than I definitely feel more energized. If you're not like me and don't drink a lot of energy drinks I recommend just drinking one can, one can should provide the average person with a decent lift in energy.

Red Thunder definitely isn't an original drink but it is a great value. It's literally Red Bull with the exception of the name and can design. If you're a big fan of Red Bull and there's an Aldi's nearby I recommend picking up a 4 pack of Red Thunder, it's a good deal.

I 100% agree! The can is actually a tad bigger than Red Bull (8.4oz. Vs. 8.45oz) or something like that. The other difference is that Red Bull is mainly made in Austria, whereas Red Thunder is made in Canada.

Red Thunder is the best, my coworker Eric once drank 5 in one day and then took a nap.

@DC DREW , you're wrong it is 8.4 oz and I bought it in the USA.

Actually Red Thunder USED to be a Red Bull clone. Years ago they switched from a citrus flavor to a berry flavor. Its still the closest I can find to Red Bull though.

I love Red Thunder but it does not really taste like Red Bull. I think Red Thunder tastes much better actually. I drink one every morning before work and have plenty of energy for the day and pay half the price of Red Bull! I definitely recommend Red Thunder to anyone and tell all of my friends about it!

I write a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on
a site or if I have something to add to the
discussion. It is triggered by the sincerness communicated in the
article I browsed. And after this post "Red Thunder Energy Review".
I was actually moved enough to drop a leave a responsea response :
) I actually do have a few questions for you if it's
okay. Could it be simply me or do some of these responses look like they
are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are
posting on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post.
Would you list every one of all your communal pages
like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
which blog platform are you using for this website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another
platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite
reason seemed to be on the web the easiest
thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they
plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
Thanks

NO longer tastes the same. They just changed the ingredients, decreasing the sodium and the sugar content and substituted Niacin for the niancinamide. Not sure what else they changed, but now it has a slight malt flavor. My local store just stocked the new deviation. Not sure if I like the new taste. I guess I could get used to it. But it's time to re-write a new article as Red Thunder no longer tastes like Red Bull.

Another advantage of the Google search engine is that it so good at putting the most relevant sites at the top of the results list.

Page titles, body copy and other elements all play a role.
Additionally, men and women have trust with your company and merchandise when your Far better Enterprise
