What is Red Bull Pear Edition?
A sugarfree Red Bull flavor that I wish wasn’t sugarless.
How is it?
It smells wonderful. It has a delicious, sweet pear scent that makes me imagine I’m in a giant pear hanging out with talking invertebrates. Oh, wait. My imagination is plagiarizing James and the Giant Peach.
But, before taking I sip, I know its flavor will not be taking my taste buds sledding down the side of a sweet pear. The letters in the blue stripe at the top of the can tell me what my expectations should be.
That enticing aroma doesn’t equate to a flavor that’s as delicious because it’s sugarfree. It uses our hyper-sweet friends, sucralose and Ace K, to bring its sugar level down to nil.
With that said, it has an excellent artificial pear flavor. Again, it’s not as pleasant as the way it smells, but for a sugarfree energy drink, it’s tasty and I’ve been enjoying it. The artificial sweeteners are noticeable, but they don’t seem to be as harsh as other energy drinks I’ve had.
Is there anything else you need to know?
It has 114 milligrams of sweet, sweet caffeine per can. Its light green color makes me yearn for a melon-flavored Red Bull. Make that happen, Red Bull, even though I’m pretty sure no one there reads this site, so I’m just shouting into the wind.
With other sugarless energy drinks I’ve consumed to help keep this site running, once its no longer chilled, the artificial sweeteners are more noticeable and drinking them becomes somewhat of a drag. But, and this is going to sound weird to those who are familiar with what I described in the previous sentence, even at room temperature, this still tasted pleasant to me.
If you don’t mind sugarfree energy drinks, Red Bull Pear Edition is worth trying because it has a nice flavor for a zero sugar beverage and a straight up pear-flavored energy drink seems to be a rare thing. So if you haven’t tried one, here’s your chance.

we need more pear and watermelon drinks in the U.S
Nice review, Marvo. I only do diet stuff, so I was pleased to see this offering by Red Bull. My standard is the Purple Edition Sugar-Free Acai Berry Red Bull but thought I would give this a whirl. To be honest, I am not a fan of pears. I have always found them a bit gritty for my liking, but hey…why not? Had I not known this was pear, I would have guessed sour apple from the color, smell, and taste. It was better than I expected, but not something I would purchase again. However, I appreciate the effort put forth to provide some different sugar-free flavors.
I would think this works well as a vodka mixer…better than reg Red Bull, like many of their other flavors.
