Bing Energy Drink Review (Taste Test)

Launched in 2006, Bing Energy is a product developed from a husband and wife duo’s love of traveling.

The couple discovered a unique formula in one of their adventures that made a great-tasting, cherry-flavored drink. Since its discovery over a decade and a half ago, Bing has now been commercialized in the form of an energy drink.

But does Bing taste as good as the manufacturers seem to say it does?

The to-the-point answer would be yes, Bing certainly does have its appeal, I can confidently rate it a 9/10.

Read on for an in-depth review with more details and a taste test!

Does Bing Work?

With a considerable 120mg of caffeine in a 12 fl oz can, Bing certainly works.

The manufacturers have produced the drink using a variety of ingredients that make it do what energy drinks do best, give you a kick of energy.

Bing contains several Vitamins that work alongside caffeine and other ingredients to rid you of fatigue completely.

The B Vitamins especially have been proven to turn fat into energy within the body, there are more than enough of these present in Bing.

What are the Energizers in Bing?

Caffeine is the primary energizer present in most energy drinks, its impact on athletic performance and erasing fatigue are undeniable.

It is extracted from a variety of sources, which are rich in caffeine. These include Guarana, Acai, and Flax Seed.

Guarana has a higher concentration of caffeine than most plants. For comparison, coffee has about 2% caffeine by weight while Guarana contains 3.6 to 5.8%.

Acai Berries are the other source, they contain copious amounts of caffeine as well.

Another unique energizer added in Bing is Asian Ginseng. Mainly used in China and other surrounding countries, this ingredient is proven to improve concentration and stamina.

Is Bing Better Than Other Energy Drinks?

To get a clear picture of the pros and cons of Bing, I’ve conducted fair comparisons with other popular energy drinks.

Bing Vs. Red Bull

Caffeine content per 12 fl oz can in Bing and Red Bull are 120mg and 110mg respectively.

The amount of caffeine added in both drinks is very similar, and if you’re moving from one to another you probably won’t notice much difference in an energy boost.

Coming towards calories, Bing has 40 while Red Bull has 168 in a 12 fl. oz drink. If you are someone who is actively trying to lose weight, Bing would be the right choice.

I like the taste of Bing a whole lot more, Red Bull’s tangy and citrus flavor doesn’t do it for me.

Bing Vs. Monster

Monster contains 130mg of caffeine per 12 fl oz, higher than Bing but not too high to make a noticeable change upon drinking the two drinks.

The calories once again vary a great deal, Monster contains a pretty high 150 calories.

Bing is the right drink for fitness enthusiasts and anyone who wants to maintain their weight.

Monster has 34 different flavors while Bing has only five, while some might prefer Monster due to the large range of choices they provide, I favor the short amount of options by Bing.

As someone who has a hard time deciding on various variants of anything, I would end up staying at the store for hours if asked to pick from 34 flavors.

Monster’s original flavor tastes similar to apple juice but carbonated, it isn’t exactly bad and I have developed a liking for it, Bing has its charm but I lean more towards Monster.

Bing Energy Drink Flavors

Bing boasts adding natural flavors to its drinks. The berry-flavored drink has several sources that give it its unique taste.

Several Fruit-Juice extracts to be specific, are responsible for giving Bing its distinctive taste. For example:

  • Cherry
  • Rasberry
  • Apple
  • Blackberry
  • Blueberry
  • Boysenberry

Is Bing Sweet?

Bing contains both natural sugar and artificial sweeteners, so it is plenty sweet.

It has 9 grams of sugar in every 12 ounces can, added to this are artificial sweeteners Acesulfame Pottasium and Sucralose.

Ace-K and Sucralose are considered safe for consumption and are FDA approved.

The sugar amount should also not hurt you as it falls well under the recommended maximum daily limit of 30 grams.

What Does Bing Taste Like?

The Original Cherry flavor is my favorite, it is just sweet enough to tingle your tongue. As you might have guessed, it tastes like cherries, not the kind of cherry that is found in cough syrups but a better, more likable flavor.

The Rasberry flavor is a bit sweeter than the original but nothing extreme, the Rasberry flavor fades in perfectly, it isn’t too prominent and has a slight trace of tart.

Blackberry flavor didn’t affect me in the way the previous two did, but it isn’t necessarily bad. The berry flavor is mild and it’s the least sugary flavor on the list.

The Crisp flavor is similar to apple juice and tastes similar to the original monster flavor but not too much. Not the best from the list but I would still pick it if the other flavors were out of stock.

Alternatives to Bing Energy

If Bing doesn’t fit your need or you simply don’t like it and would like to try out some other energy drinks, consider the following:

Other notable mentions:

Bottom Line

The final verdict after considering all factors of Bing is that I would give it a solid 9 out of 10. It is one of my favorite drinks too.

The combination of flavors is the best I’ve had, and the standard berry-flavored drinks are easy to consume and leave no bitter aftertaste.

The artificial sweeteners might be an issue for some but I didn’t find them to taste odd or have any immediate negative effects on me.

So get yourself a Bing the next time you need an energy drink!
