Untitled[edit]

The can is similar to those often containing alcohol such as beer, although beer can come in any container[3],

Ha what about a container with a hole in the bottom! This sentence seems pretty stupid - and why is it cited? :D —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.27.64.133 (talk) 09:19, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Cleared[edit]

I have cleared this page up, added a picture and details. Hope you like it! jimmy93211 june 1st

Needs more detail, maybe some nutrition stuff or something. Minardi

minardi[edit]

why do you feel my version should be revised to the previous one? it is a quite obvious advertisment, with repitition and weasel words. For example, why Relentless is 'better' than red bull is mentioned about 4 times. do you work for Coca Cola? Adamshappy 00:12, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Adamshappy[edit]

Dude, at the time I didn't have the time to re-write the article but felt you were trimming too many facts out. Ive now had a little go at it and it seems to contain the facts but without slapping you in the face and telling you its better than red bull. Hope this is wikified. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Minardi (talkcontribs) .

Wikified[edit]

I've wikified this entry a bit, added a few links, re-worded a few sentences. Citations are still needed. JubalHarshaw 22:13, 26 August 2006 (UTC)

Nutrition and citing[edit]

As of about now, I'm going to be spending a bit of time rewording, and I've also found a few sources. I will put in a few facts now, as well as nutritional information.~CortalYXTalk? 14:59, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Have placed in sources, cited them, changed the class of the article as I think it meets start class criteria, in addition to finding an appropriate infobox, and placing more nutritional info. I do think that maybe the nutritional info could perhaps go in a separate section now though - the coca cola varieties box has also been placed in... although I don't know if it is the most appropriate template. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by CortalYX (talkcontribs) 15:41, 28 March 2007 (UTC).
Am changing the country of origin, as I've noticed it still says United States... I think it's the UK, correct as necessary~CortalYXTalk? 15:48, 28 March 2007 (UTC)

Tidyup[edit]

I've cleaned up the first paragraph so it's (hopefully) more readable, and added a reference to the No Half Measures slogan - it's a pretty obvious competition strategy, as you get twice as much drink as Red Bull, for roughly the same price...

taurine and veggies[edit]

At the moment the article says relentless 'like red bull' is not suitable for vegetarians. But in the red bull article it says

'In its natural form, taurine is derived from animal tissue, usually bull bile or semen; however, the taurine used in the Red Bull drink is produced synthetically.'

I think this is more likely to be true. Therefore it would be fine for veggies, and even for vegans.Merkinsmum 15:18, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Article's neutrality[edit]

The last part of the first section seems to lack any citation and doesn't seem to be very neutral IMO, should something be done?--Bisected8 10:05, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Relentless Dates Wrong![edit]

It says in the article relentless came out in Uk in August 2006, this is incorrect, it was out in Bells Stores at start of Summer 2006.I started this page with 4 friends, we drank it all last summer and have built a tower of over 300 cans.

Could it have been a test launch?--Bisected8 19:50, 24 June 2007 (UTC)
Entirely possible, many companies test their products in local areas to "test the water", as it were. Citations would be useful, but probably hard to find. --84.67.24.171 00:50, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Mass Rioting!!!!! lol[edit]

"Sales of the drinks has been banned when purchased with vodka for fear of mass chaos and rioting[citation needed]. Coca-cola issued a statement after the incident urging users of the drink to consume in moderation."

This was toned down from some previous versions, but is still obviously an invention IMHO. Extraordinary claims require sources. I vote to keep this out unless we find a reliable source for it.Merkinsmum 19:29, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree--Bisected8 13:45, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

No E211[edit]

There is none present, only E202, it has E211 in the intro for the Relentless wiki page. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.32.150.24 (talk) 14:26, 27 February 2009 (UTC)

Burn[edit]

In that little box in the bottom of the article, about Coca-Cola brands, there is a link to Burn. (for those who don't know, Burn is an energy drink produced by the Coca-Cola corporation) However, the link doesn't lead to an article about the drink, but to an article about injuries caused by burning. I don't know how to fix this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hansihippi (talkcontribs) 20:10, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Countries?[edit]

I miss a list, which varieties are available in which countries. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.222.208.37 (talk) 22:41, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Tropical Juiced[edit]

It's not just a rename; it also tastes rather different to the original Juiced (the can proclaims a "new refreshing taste"). It no longer makes any mention of "50% juice" on the can and the ingredients seem to suggests the juice content has dropped by at least half, although I haven't had a chance to compare the two. Shiroi Hane (talk) 19:06, 29 July 2012 (UTC)

Meant to come back earlier. I was wrong in that the previous version of the packaging also said "Tropical Juiced" at the top (the original can just said "Juiced Energy") and had the Immortus name at the bottom. The current version with the new recipe has been redesigned (along with the other flavours) in line with the design introduced for Apple and Kiwi (with the colour fading out at the top) and does not have the Immortus name (according to the pictures on http://www.relentlessenergy.com/, they all now only have the flavours, not individual names).

Different taste?[edit]

Is it just me, or does this drink taste significantly different than it did about five years ago? I'm not about to place that on the page as it's original research, but could anyone find any citable source indicating a change in ingredients or anything similar?
