Xtreme Shock Mandarin Orange Energy Drink Review
Well I have reviewed two Xtreme Shock Energy Drinks so far and can say that I have been impressed by the kick both times. So today I thought I would give the final Mandarin Orange Flavor a try. I generally try to take Xtreme Shock before I workout, as that seems to be what it was meant for. It's been a long day so I am looking forward to the kick from Xtreme Shock. So let's see how the 12 Ounce Mandarin Orange Xtreme Shock (made by ANSI) performs.
Xtreme Shock Mandarin Orange Energy Drink Review: Taste
First off I would like to say that I have never tried a Mandarin. Now this might affect how I perceive the taste of this beverage but I will give it my best shot. So about 15 minutes before I leave for the gym I give Xtreme Shock a try. You can definitely taste the orange flavor but I am not sure about any other noticeable taste. The orange flavor kind of tastes like an Orange Tang on steroids. What does that mean? Artificial orange flavor with a bite. Now don't get me wrong it doesn't taste bad, but you can tell that this bad boy is made to amp you amp for your workout. Heck, it even gives you a tingly sensation. Taste Rating - 7.4
Xtreme Shock Mandarin Orange Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well we have established that Mandarin Orange Xtreme Shock tastes like Tang on Steroids. But do you get the kick you need in 15 minutes like the 12 ounce bottle states. You sure do, heck it might have only been 2 minutes and I was feeling the tingly sensation in my arms and neck. Couple that cool tingly sensation with 200 milligrams of caffeine and a proprietary energy blend and I was on my way to having one heck of a workout. Top that off with no sugar crash half way through my workout and you can say that I am pleased with Xtreme Shock. Kick Rating - 9.0
Xtreme Shock Mandarin Orange Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Tastes like Tang on Steroids, gives you a tingly sensation within a couple minutes and an energy explosion within 15 minutes. Yeah the taste is not like your typical citrus energy drink, but I would rather use this drink before a workout and sacrifice a little taste to gain the increased energy. Overall a big fan of the kick from these drinks. Final Judgment - 8.6
