Venom Energy Mango

venommango.jpgMy coworker returned from a long road trip a few weeks back and told me the new energy drink she consumed had given her a headache and upset her stomach. When prompted for the name of the energy drink, she replied, "Venom." God forbid you suffer the ill effects of drinking 16.9 oz of Venom, I mused. This line of energy drinks comes in four flavors, of which Mango was my first foray. Clearly it made an impression if it spurred me to write my first contribution to Phoood.com. I'd like to think I am judicious in my use of the word "thermonuclear," but that said, nothing less would describe the reactive mango core of this can. Venom Energy Mango is too sweet for its own good. It is more mango than mango. Moreover, something about the way the drink met my tongue made me feel as though, if they pumped two or three more PSIs of carbonation into this canister, it might just blast itself off to the moon. It's certainly tasty, but probably more like liquid candy than any other energy drink I've ever had (but I don't drink many). I think I'll stick with coffee for my kicks. It may stain my teeth, but at least I don't feel like I'm drinking diabetes when I have a cup of joe.

Phoood rating: So-so

Try Bawls...Venom is horrible, however if the caffeine doesn't keep you up. The taste sure will.

Horrible. Just plain horrible. They were passing this stuff in downtown LA just this last Friday. I took a few swigs and threw the stuff away. I can't stand the taste of it. It tastes similar to Monster original flavor energy, but a whole lot worse with tons of that fake sugar crap. Bleh! A major faux pas from this company!

Man, i was thinking about a mango-flavored energy drink! But i guess it didn't work out so well for venom... maybe monster or rockstar will make a new juiced energy flavor for mango but i don't know if they will, or if the do that it will turn out good. i was looking foreword to trying this but im prepared if it is bad.

I tried it, and i disagree about it being too sweet. It has a great taste but it has a ton of carbonation. I'll probably buy it again though.

The Black Mamba Venom drink has some kind of nuclear color in it. I am so angry.
They were giving it away at the Texas Ranger game, since I am driving from Rhode Island to the west coast I grabbed a couple. Didn't drink it though it spilled on my white shorts. I just want to know how to get it out? They are white and I even soaked them in bleach and it did not come out. Can anyone help me out here?
Also while driving from Dallas to Arizona I tried one of the drinks and it gave me a horrible stomach ache.

It's delicious. Goes down smooth and quells my suicidal impulses for a short while.
