AMMO Extreme Sport Energy Drink

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

AMMO Extreme Sport Energy Drink Review – A shortcut to an action-packed day, just 25 calories, in a manageable fruit punch favor.

AMMO gets credit for brilliance in the Power department. While some energy drinks have more caffeine, few pack so much into a 1 fluid OZ bottle. They also came up with a caffeine rationing system. A scale on the side of the bottle that lets you see how many milligrams of caffeine you’ve consumed, up to the full 171 mg. It works too, whether you ration it or shoot it all at once. A bottle of AMMO woke me effectively today.

The Extreme Sport drink is Fruit Punch flavored. The testers enjoyed this one better straight thank mixed into water. It’s easy to down, but doesn’t give you the enjoyment of a larger, sugary energy drink. There’s always a slight cost to the portability and health of the smaller drinks. But I’ll tell you – this and the other AMMO drinks are better tasting than the 5-hour Energy Drink clones. Way more fun.

Each of the drinks are labeled with “Low Carb”, which is fair. 7g sugar, 25 calories. This is far more diet-friendly and healthy than a Rock Star or Full Throttle, and it delivers about the same caffeine kick.

Unlike 5 Hour Energy & clones, AMMO works well as a mixer – even stirring it into water creates a decent drink. Their marketing angle is that this was developed originally for the US military. I’ll buy that. The testers reported no jitters and no crash, as the box claims. Of all the drinks I’ve tried, AMMO is the one I’d most like to bring on a backpacking trip, for all the reasons above. I’ll be ready to rock and roll. Any flavor will do.
