Venom Energy Drink Review: Mojave Rattler Low Carb

Mojave Rattler

Lately I’ve been addicted to the Mojave Rattler Low Carb Venom energy drink. I must have purchased about 5 of these things in the last 7 days.

Manufactured by the well-known Dr. Pepper/7-UP Inc., I had initially heard the commercial for this drink on the radio station, WAAF in Boston, maybe 4 or 5 times in the last month. Heard it a couple days in a row and thought to myself, “Venom eh? Sounds like it could be powerful. If I see that stuff in the store I’ll try some.”

So I walk into my local convenience store the other day and there it is at the front of the energy drink section: “VENOM ENERGY: Piercing Energy that Strikes Back”! Score.

Presentation A+

The best part of this drink is the can.

The first thing you see is a big purple angry snake eye surrounded by scales. Above the eye you see Mojave Ratter, and below the eye is the word VENOM printed all spooky to look like fangs.

The can itself is really hard and could probably be used as a small missile. I would feel like a tough guy walking around in public with it, and I would feel safe if I had one during a mugging as it could render some serious damage on my attacker’s cranium.

Taste C+

By now you have probably tasted a Red Bull. If not, where have you been for the last 10 years? It’s the drink that gives you wings or something.

Anyway, the Mojave Rattler tastes just like a grape Red Bull with fizz. It’s sort of a citrus-tinged bottle of SweetTarts with a kick. You either like the taste or acquire a taste for it over time.

I happened to have lived in an apartment that received free low carb Red Bull for like a year, so I’ve developed a taste for it. If you like Red Bull you will probably enjoy it, whereas if you hate Red Bull there’s no chance you will like Venom Mojave Rattler.

While I didn’t notice much aftertaste, some other reviews of this product have mentioned a sucralose inspired piquancy. Since I only drink low carb energy drinks, I might just be used to the flavor.

Effectiveness B

I could definitely tell the difference. Each time I drank a bottle of Venom Mojave Rattle I found myself running on full energy autopilot for probably about 4 or 5 hours. At 10 o’clock at night I’ve been out in the shed trying to see how many reps I can do on the bench with 175 lbs.

Nutrition B-

It’s everything you would expect from a typical energy drink, but nothing more. You get some vitamins and minerals; you get your ginseng, guarana, and caffeine energy blend; and you get some taurine and trace amounts of other helpful amino acids.

  1. This is my favorite energy drink. I can’t explain it but it gives me such a feeling of happiness and contentment when I drink it. It’s very odd but I like it!

  2. John,
    Just read your comment above. You are obviously a retard and should have no say in what your child says or does. If you speak as you write, it’s a miracle your child does anything other than use you as a human coaster.
    All the best,

  3. my 15 year old came home with said dad dont touch that drink in the frig. i looked at it. why does a 15 year old want with that o ther than get high off it this drink does affect your heart rate if running or being active in sports. 18 or over. should be the rule. she goes to me what if i dumped your beer what would you do. i siad go to the bank and bye me a 6 pack. im of age and i do not need your permission. something up and i do not know what can you help…

    • John: You don’t have a spelling or grammar checker, do you? In any case, the kid probably just didn’t want you to drink his energy drink. What’s the big deal?
