Ingredients have it all!
I've recently decided to get into Energy Drinks and compared all the ingredients. Mother has double the Taurine of popular competitors, slightly less sugar and usually a little bit more caffeine. The fact it has Guarana extract and less sodium is a bonus. The only comparable drink, when it comes to ingredients, is Rockstar but then once again we're getting a fair amount more sugar in that one.
Poor quality control
I recently purchased a 4 pack of the blue sugar free mother energy drinks. I drank two and they were fine, but the third one I opened tasted slightly off, kind of lumpy. Curious, I tried to poor the contents into a glass but there was something crystalized and it wouldn't pour. So I cut the can open, and was horrified to find when I poured the drink that the can was full of jelly-like goo swirling around...
Love your drink, best on the market. Keep falling out the package. Have to carry them like a baby. Supermarket have to tape them back in the box. Fix the package issue and we have a perfect product. I have never called a product perfect before. You could be the first. Ray
Nothing Like The Hit Of A Mother Can!
Beats red bull or monster any day all day, however I just stumbled on a new mother flavour ‘epic swell’. Taste like the original apple flavour just a different label. Oh well still the best go mother!!
Torn between hate and love
I’ve been drinking this for over 7 years and I must say it’s my go to drink 24/7 - I don’t even see other drinks when I go to the shops, it’s like I’m drawn to them. But that’s also why I hate them because I’m clearly addicted. They’ve gotten a lot cheaper over the years and I still think they taste better then any other energy drink.
Coles & Woolies 4 pack is $6.50 so can’t go wrong!!
Great for "hard workers"
My boyfriend works day and night and sometimes gets sleep only for 4 hours in two days. (he knows its not healthy!) but the "mother" drinks always keep him up. He drinks them all the time, so i tried them once when i was very tired in the morning. And the taste is just grate! I always expected a similar taste like Red Bull ( I really dislike the taste of Red Bull) but it doesn't taste like that at all.
If you try it go for the "berry flavor" . Its amazing!
But as a little warning:
People with a heart disease: Stay away from this drink. I...
Great tasting, pretty cheap for 500 mls
For some reason I was craving one of these the other day when I hadn't even had one before. So I picked one up before work and I have to say, the taste is great! IMO it tastes similar to Red Bull and V. I'd say it's in between both of those.
I had read a lot of reviews about the old formulation tasting bad (when it was first released) but they've made a pretty good drink here. The 500 ml size is pretty hefty, considering most energy drinks come in 250 ml cans (I think), and there's a whopping 51 gms of sugar per can which is a lot of sugar ...when you think about it. They shoulld definitely consider making a sugar free version. I picked mine up from Coles for $2.80 a can. Will definitely buy more of these in the future, I tend to drink one kind of energy drink at a time so I think I'll stick with Mother for a while. Taste, 500 ml can, cost 51 gms of sugar per can
Overall Mother energy drinks is never my favourite drink to choose from because it is more expensive and can sometimes make me feel sick
gives a good amount of energy,
doesn't taste as good as other energy drinks, the can is to big and sometime i feel slightly sick after consuming Mother energy drinks
The size of the drink i think is too big. I much prefer the V size cans, gives you the kick you need without having too much. I dont like the taste at all! Although much better than the original Mother they brought out a few year ago. If i need energy i will always stick to V or redbull over Mother. Its just not up to standard to the rest.
Cheaper than the rest. Often on special
Dont like the taste. Watched the news and it picked this one to be the worst for you of all the enery drinks.
Me and my husband were on a road trip recently we drove from Adelaide to NSW to visit his family it was a long drive 12 hours in total and we were both in need of some kind of energy hit I bought these as they were on special at the gas station and were a lot cheaper then the other energy drinks on the market. We bought the orange flavour and it was disgusting I have never tasted anything quite like it. It stunk too we ended up throwing them away as we couldn’t drink them.
