Every time I drink Cobra, I feel the same effect as Sting Energy Drink! But the first is sweeter in term of taste.
Don’t drink too much of it. This warning is written on bottle, “Warning: Excessive intake of caffeine may cause sleeplessness palpitations and similar side effects.”
Cobra Energy Drink has the following nutritive value:
-Total Fat 39
-sodium 49 mg
-Vitamin B1 1.35mg
-Vitamin B6 1.35mg
-niacinamide 0.7 mg
What I hate about softdrinks manufacturers is they way they imprint the ingredient list. It is always written on crown. Would you mind reading the crown below? You need a good magnifying glass to read it. Or better buy a more expensive canned version just to know its ingredients.
Most common soft drinks ingredients are listed here.

The manufacturer released the Cobra Green, the Citrus Blast. Ripe citrus color is orange. I wonder why they picked green. Does it make sense?
The tastes is a tongue biting sweet citrus. Though the only flavors I found related are nature identical flavors and citric acid. No natural citrus flavor. Auntie reported, most fanatic prefer this green version.
I spent time reading small written ingredients on corrugated part of crown. Here they are:
Nature Identical Flavors
Niacinamide, Vitamin B3
Thiamine HCl, Vitamin B1
Pyridoxine HCl, Vitamin B6
Cyanocobalamin, Vitamin B12
Blue Color – Blue color in a green beverage?
