Great tasting premium malt beverage earns online ‘street cred’ over industry leader Four Loko

CJ Crunk Knocks Out the Competition

CJ Crunk®, the premium, flavored malt beverage has wowed taste testers alike with its superior flavor over industry competitor Four Loko. Since its return to market, CJ Crunk has been sampled in a variety of taste test formats by reviewers around the country, pitting the three flavors of CJ Crunk against the infamous Four Loko.

CJ Crunk has shared this message of premium taste with consumers as well, offering fans of the brand a CJ Crunk Taste Challenge, a specially designed tab on the brand’s Facebook page. The Facebook page encourages fans to “Taste the CJ Difference” and share their own taste test results in the comments section.

A sampling of online drinks reviewers received products from both brands, courtesy of CJ Crunk, and took the CJ Taste Challenge for themselves, all offering unbiased reviews of the CJ Crunk flavors over Four Loko:

  •     The digital team behind “A History in Drinking” conducted a blind taste challenge and voted CJ Crunk Grape flavor their overall Best in Show.
  •     A columnist at Bar None Drinks conducted a malt beverage taste test with CJ Crunk in the mix. The favorite offering, CJ Crunk Watermelon, is noted to be a flavorful companion “to an outdoor summer cookout or sports tailgate.”
