Stumbling around campus at uni, sleep deprived thanks to a crying puppy keeping me awake all night, I found one of the new little kiosks that sells drinks and sandwiches. I noticed they had a new variety of V Energy drink, which I love (horrendous donuts aside), so I figured I could kill two birds with one stone; experiment with a new snack for Stew Review, and hopefully prevent myself from falling asleep halfway through my staff meeting.
The red can made me hope against all hope that it was the Berry flavoured V returning from the grave (I still haven’t forgiven them for discontinuing this, or the Not Orange one). Sadly, that was not the case.
I often find the promotional V flavours (ie. the one that tie into superhero movies) to be mediocre at best and downright awful at worst. Happily, the Deadpool 2 flavour bucks that trend. It’s hard to describe exactly what the flavour is, but I think the best I can do is to say it’s kind of a cross between citrus and berry, with a good helping of sherbet. It’s sweet and just a bit tangy, and it might just be one of my favourite flavours of V so far.
If you come across these in the wild, definitely grab a few cans before it gets discontinued as well.
