Coca-Cola Real Gold: Ultra Charge Lemon & Rock Energy
I found two types of Coca-Cola Real Gold drinks that are different from the original, Ultra Charge Lemon and Rock Energy, in a vending machine yesterday and got them for this blog article this time.
Real Gold Ultra Charge Lemon & Rock Energy Drinks
While Real Gold Ultra Charge Lemon (Volume 490 ml/Price: 170 yen) has been around for quite a long time, Rock Energy (Volume 250 ml/Price: 140 yen) debuted this year (2022) in collaboration with Yoshiki.
Rock Energy comes in X and Y (maybe derived from X Japan and Yoshiki), and this one is the X variety, a caffeinated energy drink with a spice mix including guarana that recreates the euphoria of rock ‘n’ roll.
In contrast, Rock Energy Y has the image of the concentration of classical music formulated with a herb mix. The original and Lemon are non-caffeinated, whereas X/Y contains 30 mg of caffeine per 100 ml.
Taste-wise, both are easy to drink and yummy with the base taste of the original.
While the Lemon flavor (containing royal jelly and ginseng extract) is gently refreshing with a fruity fragrance and citrus note, the Rock Energy is more powerful, making you think Nothing is Impossible.
Lastly, let’s see the ingredients used in these Real Gold energy drinks and compare their nutrition facts.
