Drinking liquid nitrogen would be a stupid idea.
Drinking Liquid Nitro? Now that’s completely different. This little-known gem of an energy drink isn’t a deadly chemical that freezes things on contact, but instead an energy supplement chock full of all sorts of herbs. I’ve heard of it before, but never ran across it until I was in Big Lots the other day, performing my weekly search for great deals on wasabi peas, cans of sardines, and unique energy drinks.
After opening the can and leaning in for a whiff, I was met with a very pleasant aroma. It’s appealing, sweet, very sour, and got my mouth watering easily enough. The scent is very familiar, sort of like a mix between Rockstar and Brawndo with an added vanilla-like creaminess to the mix. It works very well and helps to balance everything out.
The flavor reminds me slightly of Full Throttle in the fact that it’s a bit salty and a sour, but it’s also sweet enough to balance everything out. It isn’t as “herbal” as I had expected, but like the aroma there is a nice creaminess that other drinks don’t have. It gives a soft texture that is very palatable and makes chugging less difficult. Overall the flavor is pretty solid, and it’s something that I really enjoyed drinking.
I was pretty surprised with how the kick turned out. Around half an hour or so after finishing the can I felt pretty alive and awake. There’s all sorts of stuff in this drink that’s supposed to help with memory and whatnot, but I can’t say whether or not it was effective. I can tell you, however, that the boost of energy was very comfortable and very pleasing. While certainly not the most potent drink on the market, Liquid Nitro certainly gets the job done.
Liquid Nitro comes in a two serving, 16 oz can for the industry standard price of $1.99, but look for it at Big Lots for as low as $0.70.
I was very pleasantly surprised by Liquid Nitro. I expected it to be awful, but it proved itself to be a very competent drink in the end. The unique take on a classic energy drink aroma and flavor really help to give this drink its own identity without straying too far from the tried and true formula of what makes a good energy drink. If you ever see it, I say give it a shot. Especially if you find it at Big Lots.
