Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Relentless Juiced Energy Berry flavour Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Relentless Juiced Energy Berry flavour
Posted: 12:29 Sun 03-May-2009. Price: 1.49. Location: Sainsbury's, Hemel Hempstead. Nutritional unusualness: New (abridged!) Wordsworth quote - "There are in our existence spots of time/ That with distinct pre-eminence retain/ A renovating virtue, whence-depressed/ By false opinion and contentious thought./ A virtue, by which pleasure is enhanced/ That penetrates, enables us to mount/ When high, more high, and lifts us up when fallen".
"Michael F" reports: Definitely a response to the ever increasing energy drink competitions. Maybe a pre-emptive attack on the imminent re-launch of Mountain Dew this year.

...Thanks "Michael" - and, in case anyone wants to argue that most of the energy drink competition now comes from Coke themselves, I found this new Relentless a bit blackcurranty compared to, say, the tropical Guava-flavoured Rockstar Punched Morrisons were selling at the start of the year. In other berry-based beverages: I remain bemused by the two separate sightings of Thirsty Original Orange submitted by "David" (69p, Newspoint Trafford centre, "Value for money, well designed well balanced drink with sports caps, well done, I will buy again"), and "Martin" (30p, B and M Bargains, "Excellent value for money, lovely drink"), though they both agreed that it's also available in Blackcurrant, Kiwi and Lemon, or Raspberry. Plus, I was reasonably pleased to discover that the UK arrival of Starbucks' Dark Berry Mocha Frappuccino (3.25/Grande) largely lives up to the expectation that that it's a Black Forest Gateau put into a blender with a standard iced coffee, though some of the remaining chocolate pieces were a bit lumpy to get through the straw.

Comment: Yes, I remember the last time it was on sale here in the 90s. Go to the toilet afterwards and it was like you'd been drinking highlighter pens. That can't be natural, shurely?

Comment: Tried the multitudinous varieties of M D available in the States recently. The original is probably the best and that has an indefinable flavour. I miss Gini.
