Xtreme Shock Fruit Punch Energy Drink Review
Well this drink comes from ANSI. They have a variety of products ranging from thermogenic fat loss to protein bars. ANSI seems to focus on weight loss products and general products to help you work out. That being sad this product is probably not for the average person looking for a quick pick me up from an Energy Drink. It seems designed for the gym or sports enthusiast. Xtreme Shock Fruit Punch Energy Drink comes in a 12 ounce plastic resealable bottle. There are also two other flavors, grape and mandarin orange which I will review later. The label on the Xtreme Shock energy drink states "feel the rush in 15 minutes." Let's see how it taste and if it can hold up to the 15 minute rush statement!
Xtreme Shock Fruit Punch Energy Drink Review: Taste
My first thoughts on the drink were that it was not going to taste very good since it was geared more towards the gym rat or athletic enthusiast. However, on the way to the gym my initial taste impression was not too bad. It generally tastes like fruit punch with the exception that there is an overwhelming cherry taste. There is a slight medicinal aftertaste to the drink but it was not too bad. For the market this drink is going after I think the taste is better than other major competitors like Redline Energy Drink. Looks like the drink is also sugar free, meaning it contains artificial flavoring (from sucralose). Artificial flavoring and sugar substitute is what allows Xtreme shock to keep the calorie count down to 20 calories. Taste Rating 7.0.
Xtreme Shock Fruit Punch Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well we established that the taste is not too bad. How does the kick hold up for Xtreme Shock? Well the quote on the label saying that you will feel the rush in 15 minutes is definitely true. Not only does it give a strong kick it also delivers a tingly sensation throughout your body and lips. This is from the ingredient called Endosine which is derived from an Amino Acid Blend that ANSI has the exlusive rights to. Along with this it also looks like they have a proprietary blend of energy ingredients. I am not sure what some of them are but I did recognize caffeine. 12 ounces of Xtreme Shock delivers 200 milligrams of caffeine. That and the other energy ingredients gave me a pretty intense kick that lasted through my workout and a couple hours after. There was no noticeable crash. This probably stems from the fact that the drink is sugar free. Overall a great kick that is along the lines of the Redline Energy! Kick Rating - 9.0!
Xtreme Shock Fruit Punch Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The taste is not bad and the kick is intense. The Endosine flush adds to the overall aura of the kick as well which is pretty neat. The drink pumped me up during my workout and would probably do the same for you as well. Just remember there is 200 milligrams of caffeine in here so make sure you hydrate when using this for any intense workout / athletics. Final Judgment - 8.5!
