Upon opening the can, it smells like chartreuse and a hint of citrus. Is the flavor motivating enough to make a group of friends jump over couch hurdles?
Taste tester #1: Yeah, it's not for me. Something about it - it's lemony but it's very light.
Taste tester #2: Doesn't really taste carbonated at all. Kinda flat in tasting. I mean, you taste the sugar? I guess it's not sparkling. Now you have to get a Mello Yellow and compare!
Taste tester #3: It's more mellow than more citrus-flavored sodas. Caffeine is listed as the 9th ingredient on the list. Is that enough caffeine to SURGE?!?!
WOULD YOU DRINK SURGE AGAIN?
Taste tester #1: Flat-out no.
Taste tester #2: No.
Taste tester #3: Yes. But only in small amounts.
So there you go! I'd suggest you try it for yourself if you're a 90s fan who wants to see if the flavor holds up to your memories.
I'm hoping they bring back Fruitopia next!
