A.C.T Energy Drink Review:
Well here is another first for me as I am going to review the ACT energy drink today. What is this first you might be asking? Well this constitutes the first time that I have reviewed an energy drink powder. That's right, the concept behind Act, from M2C Global, is that you buy individual packets and then mix them with 8-10 ounces of water or your favorite juice. Well enough, background lets get on with the review of ACT energy drink from M2C Global.
A.C.T Energy Drink Review: Taste
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on several samples of this product so I got to try mixing this powder with water and with juice. My first taste of the ACT drink came by mixing it with 10 ounces of water (as instructed on the packet) and the berry flavor was a little overwhelming. However, this issue was easily solved by adding about 5 ounces of water. So by mixing the ACT powder with 15 ounces of water the drink actually had a pleasant taste which I will give a taste rating of 7.5 which is pretty good. Mixing this powdered energy drink with sugar free fruit punch Kool Aid definitely upped the taste anti. By mixing in ACT and Sugar Free Kool Aid into a 10 ounce shaker I got a very good tasting result causing me to give ACT mixed with sweet juice a taste rating of 8.2. Average taste rating of 7.9!
A.C.T Energy Drink Review: Kick
Now for the most important aspect of the review, the kick! Well I was rather surprised the amount of energy that this little packet gave off. Although I did not feel an immediate kick like I would with caffeine based beverages, after 15 minutes I definitely felt more energized. The main energy ingredients in ACT seems to be Guarana (natural caffeine), Green Tea, Ginseng and Creatine. The combination of these ingredients would act as a great workout drink or a healthy alternative to your high caffeine high sugar drinks. ACT will get a nice kick rating of 8.0.
A.C.T Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well it tastes good mixed with sugar free Kool Aid and it provides a good kick so I will give the a final judgment of 8.1 which is quite good considering the costs! Although I got these samples for free, I believe the costs can vary slightly depending on whether you join the company or purchase at retail. I think the direct cost equates to about $1.00 per packet or you can purchase from a retailer at about a 30% mark up.
