Burn 16 Ounce Sugar Free Energy Drink Review
Well I have reviewed the original Burn Energy Drink and I have even reviewed the Sugar Free Burn Energy Drink. So why am I reviewing the sugar free version again? Well there has been a couple changes. The taste was slightly reformulated and the energy ingredients were beefed up. There is now more caffeine and ECCG which are supposed to help you burn more calories. Sugar Free Burn also adds potassium (form of electrolyte) and calcium. Combine that with a the zero sugar factor and you have an energy drink that would be a great asset to your workout regime. So let's see if the Source Beverages improvements paid off!
Burn 16 Ounce Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Taste
First off the taste was slightly reformulated from the old sugar free version. The old version had a citrus taste with a slight medicinal aftertaste. The new formula still has the citrus taste but the medicinal aftertaste is gone. However, the added EGCG from the Green Tea Extract, is noticeable. There is nothing wrong with this as the tea flavor makes the drink slightly more refreshing than before. Besides the added benefits of ECGC are also very nice. Overall I would have to say the slight reformulation definitely paid off. The old sugar free got a taste rating of 7.2. The new reformulated 16 ounce Sugar Free Burn Energy Drink gets a Taste Rating of 8.5.
Burn 16 Ounce Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well the reformulation improved the taste, but will it improve the kick? Well as I stated in the intro, the energy ingredient list was beefed up. The 16 ounce version now contains 199 milligrams of caffeine, 2000 milligrams of taurine, 200 milligrams of Guarana Extract, 200 milligrams of Panax Ginseng and 100 milligrams of EGCG and plenty of B-vitamins. Quite an impressive list that delivers a much better kick than the old sugar free version. The drink maybe twice the size but the added ingredients helped in delivering a stronger quicker kick than the original sugar free version. The fact that it is sugar free also means no "sugar crash" an hour after you are finished drinking it! Kick Rating - 9.1
Burn 16 Ounce Sugar Free Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
The taste and kick were both improved. It's nice to know that Source cared enough to take feedback from consumers and make a better tasting and healthier drink. Don't forget about the added calcium. An overload of caffeine has been known to inhibit your calcium intake, so adding calcium to the drink was a nice healthy touch. Kudos to Source for the improvements.
