Review: DEFCON3 Healthy Energy Soda

Posted: Feb 23, 2005 at 4:09 PM (Last Updated: Feb 28, 2005 at 12:13 PM)
The second rendition of DEFCON3 is definitely better from the first. The product has been reformulated to be a mid-calorie/carb product, which gives it an edge over the original. As far as mid-cal products go, the flavor is very well done. However, the use of blue color is still a questionable decision and may have an impact on this product's success. As for the packaging, the use of the new Ball slim 10-ounce can gives this product a clean and original look that's much more sleek than the original version. Overall, the re-launched DEFCON3 is a vastly improved drink that now has a decent chance for success.
