XS Energy Drink Review
I had heard that the XS Energy Drink is supposed to be relatively healthy for you as it has zero carbs, zero sugar and only 8 calories. Turns out XS energy drink is the first review I have done that falls into the "sports energy drink" category and the timing was perfect as I had to wake up early this weekend to get some hardcore exercising (Frisbee golf) in and I wanted to be in my prime! And what better way to get going than an energy beverage!
XS Energy Drink Review: Taste
I have tried many energy drinks in my life but this XS energy drink will be the first one that is root beer flavored and one of the few that does not contain sugar, carbs and is low in calories. I have to say that before I tried it I was pretty skeptical, but I would highly recommend at least trying this once. Not only is
the root beer flavor unique, but it actually tastes pretty good, kind of like the old school root beer flavor. You know the kind that doesn't give you gut rot because of all the sugar. I will give the XS energy drink review for taste a high 9.5.
XS Energy Drink Review: Kick
The initial sugar high is not there that you get with normal energy beverages and that is because this root beer flavored drink has none. However, the actual kick it puts off is pretty good. It was a perfect pick me up for Frisbee golf and I image it would be for real sports as well. The kick I got lasted through Frisbee Golf and into the beginning of the evening, so a total of about 5-6 hours. Not bad but not the greatest. I will give the XS Energy Drink Review for kick an average score of 7.5.
XS Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The taste is old school original, especially for an energy beverage. The kick was pretty good, and would likely benefit those people who need that little bit of extra energy before sports or weightlifting etc. The only bad thing is the price is not that nice. You can get them in a case for about $24.00, which comes out to $2.00 a can. The final judgment is a pretty decent 8.5, mainly for the original flavor. I have to try their other variety of drinks as well.
