Nalu is coca-cola attack on Red Bull in Europe. The Pepsi X energy tastes really great...not really like the normal Pepsi...It smeems to be less foamy in the mouth....

I scored a bottle of Nalu, but haven't tried it yet. A few months ago, I emailed a bunch of Coca-Cola HQs around the world about Surge/Urge, and one of them (I think Belgium?) replied that they don't have any. So, I asked if I could get some rare Coca-Cola product that's unavailable in the U.S., and lo and behold, voila! Someone sent me a bottle of Nalu. tongue.gif

Yes Nalu is sold in the Netherlands, but made in Belgium....
Also someone told me there is a 250 ml Energy drink in Germay, black can, with a flame on the front. Does someone knows about this? I will look this weekend in a German supermatrket.
Also Nalu and Pepsi were priced 0,95 euro (0,90 dollar) in the Supermarket

As I liked the packaging of Nalu, I really really really dislike the taste...It's horrible...
It's a drink that's carbonated with small bubbles, very watery, a huge aftertaste of sweetners (And I really mean a lot), and it's not sweet tasting, but a little tart...I don't find it really refreshing...arg...this is bad...
It tastes like a diet citrus beverage, which you dropped three times on the floor, let it foam, get al the carbonation out, and then drink it....it's bad...I didn't expected this.
So Pepsi X against Nalu...It's really the Pepsi that wone. I don't like the normal Pepsi cola, but this Pepsi Energy drink has a bit different taste, and it's really really good...Also you get 250 ml more for your buck....
