Fruta Vida Energy Drink Review
Alright I know what your thinking, Fruta Vita seems to be outside my normal scope of Energy Drinks that I review. To tell you the truth that was pretty much what I was thinking after I agreed to do a review of Fruta Vida. But I have been expanding the scope of my blog to less traditional energy drinks like hardcore energy drinks and coffee based energy drinks. So why not try Fruta Vida? It came in a tiny 1.5 fl ounce resealable plastic container and only has about 20 calories. So yeah I basically got a sample bottle but it seems to be the same serving size that you are supposed to take from the 30 ounce bottle. The 30 ounce bottle will run you about $34.95 with bulk discounts and promotions available. So it looks like the servings will be costing about $1.00 apiece. Fruta Vida also claims other health and weight loss benefits besides increased energy. I am not going to delve into any of those issues. If you want to read up more about the health or weight loss claims of Fruta Vida visit their site. Otherwise read on for how it performs in the taste and kick categories.
Fruta Vida Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well first off its a 1.5 ounce serving. I pretty much knew what I was in for in the taste category as it is usually pretty hard to cram a bunch of ingredients into a tiny bottle and make it taste good. As usual I was right. The initial berry like taste was not the greatest, although they made a pretty good effort. Not the greatest initial taste but surprisingly it did not come with any aftertaste. So once you got past the initial gulp of the 1.5 ounces and the 15 seconds of odd taste it was fine. Taste Rating 7.0
Fruta Vida Energy Drink Review: Kick
There really is not a whole lot of anything in here. This could be good or bad. Good because there are not a whole lot of long words in the ingredient list that I can't pronounce. Those long words usually are not good for you. Bad because I am not seeing a whole lot of energy ingredients. The only one I recognized was Yerba Mate which is a naturally occurring caffeine. Other than that Fruta Vida has a Nutraceutical called Acai berries. What's that? Basically an antioxidant to help boost the immune system. What does that have to do with energy? Well you have less energy when you are sick. The kick is not the greatest but it is not too shabby. Kick Rating - 7.0
Fruta Vida Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well $34.95 will get you a one month supply of this product. It doesn't have the greatest taste and doesn't deliver the greatest kick. It does give you energy. But the health and dieting effects are what most people use it for. Final Judgment - 7.0
