BAZI Energy Drink Review

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

BAZI Energy Drink Review – Stay awake and stay healthy!

Bazi offers a fresh approach to the energy shot. Instead of loading the drink with caffeine, they’ve loaded this drink with “superfruits” – jujube, blueberry, goji, mangosteen, raspberry, pomegranate, a├žai, and seabuckthorn. So, does it work as well as, say, a 5-hour Enery Shot? It definitely provides a boost, a smooth but light increase in physical energy and mental clarity. It’s not going to help you kick your day in high gear after getting fours of sleep at night. But if you’re not a caffeine addict – or you’re trying to kick the habit – this a great choice for quick pick-me-up during the day.

It’s not delicious, but then again, we’ve tried much worse. Ever had a Flintstone’s Kids chewable vitamin? This is similar combination of sweet berry and a slight sour, perhaps citrus, bite at the end, but it doesn’t gag you, and we’ve prefer the taste to the standard 5-hour energy shot. It’s not carbonated, and it’s easy to chug it down.

You shouldn’t be sleeping four hours a night anyway. Also, getting your energy drink high fructose corn syrup isn’t so great either. OK, enough from your mother. These fruits offer additional health benefits as well, so check out their website if you’re looking for a well-rounded energy & vitamin option.

If you’re working on a health-conscious diet, Bazi is a great choice for a daily boost. I see it as an energy drink for the 30+ age group, when you start to care about getting less sugar and more antioxidants and nutrients.

AMMO After Dark Energy Drink Review

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

AMMO After Dark Energy Drink Review – Stay up, stay low carb, and we like the blue razz 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 After Dark flavor is actually blue raspberry. Now, the couple testers are admitted fans of blue raspberry, so maybe they’re a little prejudiced here, but they gave a good report on the flavor. It has a bit of bite like the Citrus Ice flavor, but it’s easy to shoot or mix in a glass of water. It just naturally won’t be as delicious as the sugar-filled, staple convenience store options.

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.

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.

AMMO Purple Dragon Energy Drink

Friday, February 19th, 2010

AMMO Purple Dragon Energy Drink Review – AMMO gives you the shortcut to an action-packed day, in an enjoyable grape flavor.

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 Purple Dragon drink is grape-flavored, as you might expect. At EDB, we’re suckers for a good grape energy drink. Now, being a condensed low-carb drink, it wasn’t as enjoyable as a sugar-filled grape NOS. But I did enjoy the grape, straight and diluted in water. It’s easy to drink and possibly my favorite of the AMMO flavors.

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.
