Reign Taste

Currently offered in over 10 amazing flavors including sour apple, carnival candy and lilikoi lychee so their flavors are far from afraid of standing out from the crowd.

These amazing fruity flavors all really pop on the tongue in their own way so if you see a flavor based on a fruit that you like the taste of then run with it!

Reign Extras

These guys have kept it clean and simple and stuck to the energy drink cans.

From our knowledge and research there guys don’t sell any form of merch whether it be hats, tees or even shaker cups.

So no extras here just the individual cans or the 12 packs.

Bang Taste

Bang offers many crazy flavors including a range of iced tea which are a hit for you who are big fans of iced tea.

Currently offers over 10 different flavors including Birthday Cake Bash, Rainbow Unicorn and Candy Apple Crisp. I mean these flavors taste just as fruity as they sound.

Their main aim with the flavor is to not be boring or generic and to offer you a really unique taste that you enjoy.

Bang Price

Current RRP on a can of Bang energy drink is $1.98 which is vey reasonable. Just like the Reign cans you’ll save a little bit more if you brought in bulk from a place like Amazon or Walmart.

Bang Extras

So this is pretty cool if you’re into branded gear and you want to grab some Bang merch.

They have their own trainers! that’s right Bang kicks. Currently offered in 4 different colorways this offering is really something that I don’t believe any other energy brand has really dived into.

Bang also offer a variety of tees, hats, bags and other cool items so this is perfect if you like their logo or want to support and promote their brand by wearing their logo.

The Answer: What is Better Reign or Bang?

So in terms of taste both brands are very similar in offering whacky flavors. Neither brand are shy of throwing out a bit of cotton candy or crazy berry flavors so they’re both very similar in regards to flavors and taste.

We felt to have a bigger kick and impact from drinking Reign and we believe this being down to the higher content of vitamins. Both are sugar free so that’s good but nothing that really sets them largely apart in terms of ingredients.

The RRP price of these cans literally have $0.01 difference in so no ones really going to mind spending that extra cent.

Extras is the main category where these two brands are different because Reign simply don’t offer any and Bang offer a wide variety of goodies and merch.

So the final verdict is if you’re looking for a higher energy content and you’re all about the kick you get from the drink then we do advise Reign.

If however you’re looking to buy into a brand where you get loads of different merch and you’re still getting a brilliant energy drink that definitely serves the purpose of helping you focus in Esports.
