Bing Black

Bing Black

Almost 2 years ago I reviewed an energy drink called Bing.  It was at the time and still is one of the best cherry flavored energy drinks I have ever tried.

Bing Black

Recently I saw Bing had a new flavor coming out so I contacted them to see if I could acquire some for review.

Luckily for me, Bing was very happy to have someone try out the newest addition to the Bing family and sent me some samples to try out.

The Look

(9 out of 10)

The look of Bing Black is very similar to the original Bing.  The colors have been inverted so the can is primarily black with red and gold lettering.

For me, this color scheme works very well and is very pleasant to the eye. On the back of can, you will find the supplement facts and warning label (with the caffeine content clearly listed). 

Taste

(8.5 out of 10)

Bing set the bar high with their original drink so I had very high hopes for Bing Black. I have never had a blackberry flavored energy drink that I can remember so I was not sure what to expect.

When I took the first sip I was greeted with the taste of actual blackberries (guessing this is due to the 5% juice that is added)  and a good amount of carbonation.

Just like the original Bing, Bing Black scores very well in the taste department.

Does It Work

(8.5 out of 10)

Each can of Bing Black is powered by 122 mg of caffeine, 8 grams of sugar, vitamin C, several B vitamins, ginkgo biloba, ginseng root extract, beta-glucan, guarana seed extract, acai berry extract, and flaxseed extract. You get all this with only 40 calories and no high fructose corn syrup. 
After drinking the 12 ounces can I got a very nice pick me up that lasted around 3 hours with no crash at all.

Overall Thoughts

With Bing Black, Bing has proven that they are not a “one trick pony”.  They took such a unique flavor like blackberry and made it work very well in an energy drink.  

The packaging looks fantastic and the kick is pretty solid as well.  If you are looking for a low calorie, low carb drink that will get you moving, I highly recommend giving Bing Black a shot.
