Just do it. The power surge from X344 carries you for 12 hours. We’ve yet to try another energy drink that can compare.

The “X344″ refers to the 344 mg of caffeine that this drink packs. A helpful guide right on the can contrasts the power ingredients to those in Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar, so you can be sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck. They also give a warning – “Do not consume more than two servings per sitting” – and there are two servings per can.

The flavor takes some getting used to, but it’s worth it. The more you drink it, the easier it goes down.

We would rate the taste at only 1.5 of 5 stars – but really, are you drinking for the taste?

Crave Energy Drink Review

Friday, January 9th, 2009

Crave

Energy Drink Review of Crave: A powdered energy drink brings their own formula to the high-octane beverages industry.

Mix the powder with water and you get a bright green drink with loads of smooth energy.

The first thing you taste is a Kool-Aid-like cotton candy flavor…but the first aftertaste is very bitter and medicinal. The second aftertaste is even stronger but less bitter, like TheraFlu. It is drinkable – just like TheraFlu. You can control your rations, since you’re mixing with water, and a couple testers preferred shooting the drink with a half-cup of water.

Crave comes from Vitamark, and it’s being sold like Mary Kay. A powdered energy drink is a unlikely but brilliant idea, which they’ve done a decent job of executing.

Crave comes in a little 2-serving size packet – portable, won’t get cold on you, easy to share, and it’s a much better price than its canned older siblings. It’s even healthier than most of the competition. So how does it compare on taste and energy?

The package claims their goal in creating this product is: “To give you the energy you want with no jitters, headaches or let-down, better taste (with no after-taste), a much better price, and to make it convenient & portable.” Crave is all of these things but one.

Obviously there’s much better tasting options out there. However, if you’re willing to sacrifice taste for convenience and cost, pick up a box and mix up a drink.

NOS Energy Drink Review

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009

Energy Drink Review of NOS: A high-powered energy drink named after the nitrous oxide injection equipment for cars. Unlike its namesake, it’s an enjoyable beverage for any day you’re dragging.

I questioned whether it was all in my mind that this drink seemed to provide a boost beyond any other I’ve tried recently… but then I checked the Caffeine Database.

NOS contains 25 mg of caffeine per oz, compared to Mountain Dew at 4.58 mg/oz or even Full Throttle at 8.81 mg/oz. Factor in taurine, B12, and you’ll feel that horsepower increase you’d expect from a drink branded with the NOS logo.

It’s easy to drink, with somewhat of a grapefruit / citrus taste to it.

NOS delivers. It’s the drink I’ll go to if I need a boost and don’t want to take a chance on something new. This is a EDB Recommended Beverage.

DareDevil Energy Drink Review

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

Energy Drink Review of DareDevil: A brilliant beverage – we dare you to disagree.

The caffeine content is just what you want: 240 mg per 16 oz can. Not over the top, but a serious kick.

The BoostAdvisor team is out there every day, opening cans of drinks you’ve never heard of, and take the first gulp – just for you. Sometimes, gagging ensues, sometimes, we’re really pleasantly surprised.

With the “Live on the Edge” motto on the can, DareDevil had me a little worried. But DareDevil definitely falls under the second category…this is a great tasting drink.

It’s the standard citrus, with a twist – somewhat of a tart aftertaste that leaves you wanting more.

This was a refreshing beverage and seems to be unanimously praised by those that have tried it. So if you don’t like it, you’ll be a social outcast, or at least in the miniority. There’s nothing wrong with that, just go back to your Diet Green Tea and leave the energy drinks to us.

Nice work, DareDevil, this is a great addition to the market.
