[Review] Slap: Crisp Apple (Green Tea Energy)

Slap Crisp Apple CanStraight from the can:

If you’re reading this… something must have gotten your attention. Is it Great Taste? Unique Flavors? Better-for you ingredients? Or, maybe it was the fact you get “ALL THE ENERGY” without the jitters?

Introducing SLAP CRISP APPLE. We blended the all natural flavor of sweet crisp apples with a mild garden mint and infused it with green tea loaded with antioxidants.

So there you have it. An energy drink that tastes great, is loaded with “ENERGY 9.0″, has better ingredients and keeps you going. Now isn’t that what energy drinks were created for?

Review:

Popping the tab on the top of the can I was met with an aroma so delicious I couldn’t help but smile. Man, Slap Crisp Apple smells exactly like you just cut into a fresh green apple. Wow, I don’t know if I’ll even be able to drink this stuff, I can’t quit sniffing it! There is a perfect balance of sweet and tart, a slight underlying earthiness brought about by the green tea, and the whole thing just makes your mouth water. I can’t detect any chemical traits, and I can’t find anything to complain about. It looks like Slap Crisp Apple is going to be only the second energy drink I’ve ever reviewed to get a perfect 10 for its delicious aroma, the first being Nitrous Monster Super Dry.

The flavor, while not perfect, is also a very wonderful experience. The first sip yielded a deliciously flavored, lightly carbonated liquid that tantalized the taste buds and felt pleasant on the palate. The flavor is almost a perfect replica of a crisp green apple, sweet and tart, but the beverage also manages to be cool and refreshing at the same time. The tiny bubbles feel wonderful swishing around in your mouth, which makes the drinking experience even more pleasant. I didn’t think I’d like Crisp Apple, due to the fact that tea-based energy drinks often times just aren’t done very well, but Slap’s formula is great. Though I do have a complaint. The carbonation can dissipate quickly, and with its absence comes the a dilution of the apple flavor, making the overly earthy green tea and yerba mate more pronounced, which detracts from the drink a little bit. Of course, it takes about 30 minutes or so for this to happen, so just make sure you drink it faster than that and you won’t have any problems.

I drank my can of Slap about 20 minutes before the news station I work for had to go on the air for the late cast, which starts at 11 P.M. This is after working a full shift at my other job as a grocery store bagger, and on top of that I’ve got some kind of awful chest cold and an infected finger. I didn’t want to carry out the difficult job of sitting in a chair and turning a knob to make words scroll across a screen for the anchors to read. I wanted to go to bed. Thankfully Slap Crisp Apple picked me up enough to get through that cast and then some. When I got home I was able to practice with my new Ocarina for about an hour and a half, and then I still had enough energy to play Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story before finally dozing off.

Slap Crisp Apple Green Tea Energy comes in an industry standard 16 oz, 2-serving can for $1.99. Throw in a tantalizing aroma, delicious flavor, and competent kick and you’ve got yourself one Hell of a drink for an affordable price.

Final Words

Slap’s Crisp Apple flavor is a truly unique experience. The aroma and flavor are so delicious that it is hard to understand why God loves you enough to make your nose and mouth advanced enough to even experience it. The kick is more than capable of picking you up and helping you get things done. Slap Crisp Apple has an excellent balance of all attributes that make up a good energy drink.

Slap Crisp Apple is easily one of the best energy drinks I’ve ever had.

    On a hot day like today a pint of Slap Crisp Apple poured over an equal amount of ice is better than sex.
