C4 Carbonated Cotton Candy Energy Drink







Taste


Cotton Candy - It certainly tastes like cotton candy, and I would expect nothing less from Cellucor and how well they flavor their carbonated beverages. It has that familiar sweetness and almost powdery mouth feel allowing passive sips to resemble the spun sugar confection. At no point drinking the beverage did I feel the flavoring was overpowering or too sweet to turn consumers away. Cellucor found a middle ground on replicating the dessert with a refreshing and bold flavor. As Cellucor continues to dish out new C4 Carbonated flavors they continue to impress me as this one goes towards the top of my all-time favorites off their line. If you like Bang Cotton Candy you will love this C4 Carbonated flavor.




Formula



The formula carries over vitamin B6 and B12, which is found in both Bang and Hyde Power Potion. There is also a performance energy blend of 6.7g that contains:
  • Beta-Alanine – Designed to delay the onset of fatigue, resulting in improved power and performance

  • Citrulline Malate – Supports an increase in nitric oxide levels, pumps, and delays lactic acid build up

  • Betaine – Maintains your cells’ electrolyte concentration and supports hydration

  • N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine – Supports mental and cognitive health.
Compared to Bang & Hyde, which have COQ10 and BCAA’s, this is a different twist to an energy drink. I personally find these hit just as hard as their competition and provide a minor boost during training.

Cost
C4 Cans Retail $28/Case . Stop into any convenience store and most people pay around $2.50-$3.50 a can. When on Discount for 20-25% off or BOGO50 it is very affordable and comparable to other energy drinks on the market. Given the cost, formula, and taste I would suggest these carbonated energy drinks for an afternoon get me up, replacement to coffee, or a carbonated pre-workout beverage.



Comparison

So here is the big one most people want to know. How does it stack up vs Bang and Hyde Power Potion.
Let us first understand what each one has and what differs.

Bang à Stronger Carbonation, BCAA, Creatine, COQ10, B12, B6, Taurine, 300mg Caffeine
Hyde à Less Carbonation, Sweeter Taste, 350mg Caffeine, LCLT (recovery), Citrulline (Pump), Teacrine & Choline (Nootropics)
Cellucor C4 Carbonated à Moderate Carbonation, bold flavors, No artificial colors/dyes (Purple Frost), Blend of Beta-Alanine (Endurance), Betaine (Performance), Citrulline (Pump/ Prevent Lactic Acid Build Up)
Repp Sports Raze à This has the same caffeine content as Bang Energy (300mg) + Added Nootropics for longer lasting energy. The carbonation is also on the lighter side.


If you favor pure flavor à Bang
If you favor a coffee replacement, afternoon get me up, and well-rounded energy drink à C4 Carbonated
If you favor pure energy and focus à Hyde Power Potion
If you favor a strong long lasting energy drink à Repp Sports Raze
If you favor a fully-fledged pre-workout carbonated beverage à C4 Ultimate Carbonated

Rankings:

  1. Orange Slice
  2. Cotton Candy
  3. Midnight Cherry
  4. Cherry Limeade
  5. Twisted Limeade
  6. Blue Bombsicle
  7. Tropical Punch
  8. Purple Frost
  9. Strawberry Watermelon

My initial verdict of Venom for those wondering. No DMAA, and very very little ephedra extract. Does appear to have less than 300mg caff, which I like. Would like to get a scoop tested by a lab, but don't have money.

Wow that Venom pre workout seems to be very strong. Is it too strong? What effects would it give compared to OG mesomorph?

with 100mg of DMAA you would sure as hell know if it was in there... that would hit like a brick to the head

I feel ripped off. Wonder if I can return it opened. Don't know if any of the ingredients other than caffiene are legit.
Wow that’s fuckin brutal! I was considering that as a viable mesomorph replacement...

One thing I can suggest, have you vigorously shaken the tub up?

It’s very interesting lol. I go from feeling pumped and shredded and to fat and bloated I the span of 12 hours. I know the first 2-4 weeks of reverse dieting are the hardest, and I HAVE to raise my maintenance cals and come off Keto now that my hormones are in check. It was messing with my liver kidneys and CK levels being Keto/low carb and continuing to train at high intensities. So I’m feeling great physically for the most part but mentally it’s a big change. I’m so used to avoiding carbs and now I find myself trying to find enjoyable ways to hit my macros instead of just slamming down rice cakes just because lol. So far so good. The interesting part will be when I start getting up around 200g and need to keep protein and fat down.... just so used to loading up on those macros that carbs are not something I know how to take in enjoyably and consistently

This. Chop it up with a fork or knife. Put in fridge for 24-48 hours. Chop again, shake until you get tired. Chop some more.. should be good and have everything redistributed enough. This is how i preserve my powdered Supps that clump up if not used quickly enough. Continue to store in fridge/freezer.

@chedapalooza I can only imagine the drastic change has to be somewhat of a shock to the system. I know once I start bulking in November the first few weeks I feel bloated all the time, but a lot of that is mental. Never considered the hormonal aspect of shifting eating habits but makes a ton of sense now that you say it. I guess it’s just like any system of change where there’s never just a to b, there’s always varying levels and factors that also play huge roles in it all. Good luck upping those carbs

First time opening I did. I'm going to shake it up again before my workout, and try again today. I was most days taking Kraken with DMHA, and Venom felt like it had no DMAA, no DMHA.

Giving ultimate a try starting Monday. 42 for 2 shipped was a pretty decent deal, with super HD being free.

Almost all fat loss will come from yohimbine hcl in that formula. Cheaper to just buy caffeine and yohimbine caps

I used to use code red because yohimbine was very hard to get in the UK but now I have a source I wouldn't use code red unless I really had to. The yohimbine is the only real useful ingredient there. I used around 15mg per day, I could go twenty but side effects were too strong. I do like to feel it though.

DM me please where you get yohimbine in the U.K.

I was late to the party, I had only recently heard of them. The BZRK looks too strong for me, but I’ve heard good things about it as well.

As far as this Rainbow Haze Loco goes, its pretty great! Flavor is phenomenal, like a sherbet flavor and it even has a like a creamy component to it. Hard to explain but it’s damn good. The formula is strong, for me. My initial try, I did just under a scoop and half and it was a little much. One scoop is just right for me, which is great because the bottle will last longer. The inclusion of GBB is awesome for cutting season, as it definitely warms you up and makes you sweat like crazy! Overall, I’m very satisfied with it and will pick up another

I really enjoy BZRK. Just enough stim but not insanity. Chemix was/felt a lot stronger.

The loco formulations for LE are on point. Cinco Loco has been my favor to date. Rainbow Haze 2 years ago was good too.

Cellucor C4 Energy Natural Carbonated Review





Taste

Strawberry Coconut – This flavor was heavy in strawberry and light in coconut. While I am not a huge coconut fan you can pick this up as you sip on the beverage. The strawberry is good, but not going to contend with the Alpha Amino Ultimate flavor. While both are flavored in a complete 180 with ingredient profiles this is the closest thing I can relate it to. For a naturally flavored beverage, I can drink them, but if you don’t enjoy the stevia bite it may turn you off. I personally have no issue with it as I found the beverage to settle easy and the flavors to compliment each other with a heavier coconut to strawberry ratio.



Formula



The C4 Natural is a very short and simple formula.
1g Taurine – Antioxidant, Hydration Boosting Agent, Endurance
500mg L-Tyrosine – Reduce Stress, Improve catecholamine production, Energetic Neurotransmitter
250mg Cognizin Citicoline – Nootropic to prolong caffeine half-life, improve mood, enhance memory
120mg Caffeine (Coffeeberry) – Natural Stimulant



Cost
Retail - $26.99 / Case of 12
The best current deal I can find is 25% OFF. This will take cases very close to $19.50 each. When you factor in buying a case that would bring the price down to $1.60 per can. The thing with pricing on these cans is tricky because they are made for Sprouts grocery stores and Europa vendors. Therefore it is hard to find and get these unless you want to buy them direct for $30 Case + Shipping. Do your research and if you live next to a Sprouts I would suggest picking them up and trying them first hand.
