AMMO Full Force Energy Drink Review

Friday, February 19th, 2010

AMMO Full Force Energy Drink Review – A shortcut to an action-packed day, just 25 calories. This citrus flavor has the most bite of the bunch.

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 Citrus Ice has a bite to it, but not the obnoxious energy drink formula taste. It’s a little more like a bit of lemon and lime juice mixed. I recommend mixing this one, with water or any creative liquid option. For me, it wasn’t as deliciously enjoyable as a sugar-filled Monster – naturally. It’s definitely still easy to drink and the couple testers of this flavor are fans.

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.

Krank’d Body Fuel Grape Review

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

Krank’d Body Fuel Energy Drink Review – Excellent hybrid sports drink, and the grape flavor is very enjoyable.

In its marketing materials, Krank’d claims to have “created its own category.” In the flooded energy drink market, that’s a big claim to make. I think they have a right to say this, more so than any other drink I’ve tried in recent future. This isn’t the straight caffeine / taurine blast of a NOS, and it isn’t a water / high fructose corn syrup hybrid in a sports bottle. It’s Gatorade’s smarter, healthier cousin. The 7-in-1 on the label refers to B-vitamins, essential minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants, l-glutamine for muscle repair / recovery, reverse osmosis water, and a “tri-carb blend” for “time-released energy.” Bottom line, this was a nice addition to my day, resulting in a smooth energy with no high or low. Don’t expect to feel a big power boost though. If you are hitting the weights today, this would be the perfect drink to bring along.

The EDB team has historically had an affinity for grape-flavored energy drinks. This one’s no exception. It could be that grape masks all the less-tasty but powerful ingredients thrown into these drinks. Try the Body Fuel Grape drink during a workout, and try to restrain yourself from chugging the whole bottle down. It’s not easy to make this one last!

A standout. Krank’d Body Fuel is sweetened with sucralose (ie Splenda) instead of high fructose corn syrup or aspartame. There are 6g of sugar and 37 calories per bottle. There’s niacin and caffeine included, but not more than you’d want. I can drink this one guilt-free any time.

Krank’d Body Fuel is highly recommended for the highly athletic, as a regular addition to your diet. The Grape flavor is great. If you’re more interested in occasional power in a can, look elsewhere for a bigger boost or better taste.

Krank’d Body Fuel Fruit Punch

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Krank’d Body Fuel Energy Drink Review – Fruit Punch isn’t our favorite flavor, but it’s still a pretty great concept.

In its marketing materials, Krank’d claims to have “created its own category.” In the flooded energy drink market, that’s a big claim to make. I think they have a right to say this, more so than any other drink I’ve tried in recent future. This isn’t the straight caffeine / taurine blast of a NOS, and it isn’t a water / high fructose corn syrup hybrid in a sports bottle. It’s Gatorade’s smarter, healthier cousin. The 7-in-1 on the label refers to B-vitamins, essential minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants, l-glutamine for muscle repair / recovery, reverse osmosis water, and a “tri-carb blend” for “time-released energy.” Bottom line, this was a nice addition to my day, resulting in a smooth energy with no high or low.  If you are hitting the weights today, this would be the perfect drink to bring along.

I am a fan of fruit punch-flavored drinks, for the most part. This one was a little disappointing. Perhaps due to the minimal sugar, but this is a far cry from the sweet fruit punch that I was expecting. It’s a bit like fruit punch watered down, with a little bite to it. On the hand, if you’re using the drink for the ideal purpose, during a quick break from pumping iron and running hard, it’ll taste just fine.

A standout. Krank’d Body Fuel is sweetened with sucralose (ie Splenda) instead of high fructose corn syrup or aspartame. There are 6g of sugar and 37 calories per bottle. There’s niacin and caffeine included, but not more than you’d want. I can drink this one guilt-free any time.

Allday Energy Drink Review

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Allday Energy Drink Review – finally, there’s an energy shot that won’t make you gag.

As always, the boost you’re going to get depends on your caffeine tolerance. They’ve packed the usual energy components into this shot, and it will pick you up. If you like the idea of a 2 oz. shot of energy, you can’t do better that this one. I noticed that I had more energy and was more alert for several hours. However, if you’re typically drinking NOS or two Monsters with breakfast, you won’t feel much.

Maybe my expectations were really low due to prior experience with energy shots. I was pleasantly surprised by this drink. Now, it’s not an enjoyable drink by any means. You probably wouldn’t find me lounging around on a sailboat sipping Allday. But it’s a smooth, somewhat plum-flavored shot, that goes down easier than most 5 Hour Energy clones.

Allday inspired us to make a change here at EDB. While for 4 years, we’ve focused only on the energy and taste these drinks provide, we realized we are missing a vital component. Is it fair to kill Allday in the final rating because it doesn’t taste as good as a Monster, when it clocks in at 0 calories, 0 sugar – and Monster has a 54 grams of sugar? Allday is fairly non-harmful, but at that same time, doesn’t offer some of vitamins and other helpful supplements found in competing drinks.

Allday provides a decent boost, with minimal sacrifice to taste, at a much lower cost to your body’s health (if you’re concerned about such a thing.)
