View Full Version : KMX energy drink

Does anyone actually like this stuff? I picked up some from the local Big Lots as it was only 48 cents a can and I don't really like the taste of it at all. Theres no taste but bitter, I'm guessing it's supposed to taste slightly berry because of the blue tint to it, but it is not good at all.

Can't say that I've seen/tried it. Doesn't hurt to keep an eye out for it though.

Might be only here in the south, they also have this new stuff called RipIt in stores down here, thats the size of rockstar and is only 99 cents.

48 cents for KMX?

yummy ill have to check my local big lots.. i really liked KMX!

Cheaper Knockoff's maybe?

There was another brand too, can't think of the name (nothing I've had before). But yeah for 48 cents, not bad really. I got 10 cans so I'm good for a few more days.

KMX was coca-cola's first entry into the energy drink market. It failed miserably which is why you see it in discount stores at such a cheap price as it was probably bought by liquidators for redistribution. It has been discontinued.

Ah, well I still see it at regular grocery stores as well.

i cant find KMX in stores naymore, my local big lots only had the blue kind but I picked up 24 of them at that price, it is tasty stuff, one of my fave beverages overall.. had a really WEIRD taste, so i can see why it didnt do well with consumers overall, but i frigging loved it.

In Cali KMX is still in retailers coolers along with Eas and Raze. I think C-C has a better shot with Full Throttle yet it lacks any kind of creative flavor.

I went back up to Big Lots to look for more KMX, they happened to be out of it, but they had this other brand... Hansen's energy drink in tropical and wild berry, I have yet to try either but I picked up some so I will see since it was only 50 cents as well.

Big Lots buys Energy Drinks for about $5.00 a case. It would be in your best interest to check the production date or exp.

You may be one of the few who like it.

Yeah I dunno I think the Hansen tropical one tastes pretty good but the wild berry one is nasty... I am probably gonna go ahead and order a bunch of random energy drinks ****** and taste them all to see which one I like the best.

I found some cans of KMX left over in the cold drinks section of Farm Fresh in Suffolk, VA. They were the orange flavor? I knew they were discontiuned, so I bought a can, and I didn't realize until I left the store that it had expired on April 13th. It tasted like Sweettarts.

If it was still produced, I guess I'd drink it on a regular basis.

Yeah I still check Big Lots regularly, last time they didn't have any energy drinks at all.

I went back yesterday, they had KMX, Hansens, Fuze, cold mountain bottles and faygo bottles. All good stuff from what I hear

KMX is fairly decent, nice orangey flavor with some bite.

05-22-2005, 12:35 AM
This is the blue kind, not the orange (I really dislike the orange kind)

I really hated KMX bolth flavors the flavor was ok but it really heart my chest. But i must admit the buzz it gave was prittty strong. Anyway dose anyone know if big lots still have it at 50 cents a can?. Or any other energy drinks at 50 cents each?.

UPDATE: My BigLots still has a ton of KMX and hansen's

I liked the orange KMX flavor. It would sting my throat when I slurped it, heh.
