Review: ED Extra Bite

The Finnish beverage company Hartwall introduced a new low-carb energy drink ED Extra Bite in March 2012.

The taste is refreshingly fruity and it does not resemble traditional energy drinks. Although it has the same 2 g/100 g of carbs as the older lineup of ED Light products, the terms “light” or “low-carb” do not appear in the drink name, product description or advertisements. Also, some may think it does not have artificial sweeteners because Aspartame is displayed as “E951” in the ingredients. The main sweetener is fructose syrup. The 11 fl. oz. (330 ml) can is reasonably priced at $2.35 (1.79 €) compared to the competitor Battery costing $2.90 (2.19 €).
