essn Energy Drink Review
Well this would be my first Organic Energy Drink that I have reviewed in quite some time. The last one I reviewed was the Steaz Energy Drink. I definitely applaud the idea of a healthy organic energy drink, it just has to pass my criteria of tasting good and giving a good kick. If the essn Energy Drink can do those two things than I will be happy. Besides, who wouldn't want a healthy alternative to the normal sugar induced energy drinks, especially if the produce the same or better results. So let's see how the Organic essn Energy Drink performs in the taste and kick categories.
essn Energy Drink Review: Taste
Before I get into taste I want to say that the essn 12 ounce slim can proudly displays the word "Organic." What does this mean? This means that there are no preservatives and no other ingredients that you can't pronounce in this drink. Also, instead of sugar or sugar substitutes, essn uses organic cane sugar. Doing all this gives you a much healthier energy drink than the normal mass market ones. Why did I tell you all this organic info? Well first off it is healthier as I stated above and second, when I hear the words organic I usually cringe when it comes to tasting that product. However, fortunately for me essn Energy has quite a unique tasting drink. The description on the can is "Pomegranate Lime Flower." So what does this taste like? Well it tastes like a berry flavored green tea with a hint of lime. Yeah, an unusual combination but the result is quite refreshing. Taste Rating 8.7
essn Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well a refreshing and unique kick, but will the organic energy ingredients provide enough of a kick to satisfy me? Well the list of energy ingredients includes 240 milligrams of Guarana Extract (organic), 360 milligrams of Brazilian Yerba Mate and a plethora of B-Vitamins. So the kick was actually pretty fast acting and lasted a relatively long time (3 hours). On top of this essn energy also contains EGCG, which studies have shown can reduce the risk of four of the major health problems: stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes. So you get a solid kick with no jitters, no sugary crash all while fighting some major health concerns. Checks out in my book. Kick Rating - 9.0
essn Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Unique taste, all organic, contains EGCG and supplies a healthy kick. What else could I like about this drink? Well the fact that the price is $1.99. A lot of "organic" products jack up the price because they like taking advantage of all the health nuts. They have the motto "it's good for you therefore you should have to pay us more for it." Well I hate that, why should I have to pay more to live a healthier life? Enough with the rant! Thanks essn for keeping the price on par with the competition. Final Judgment - 8.9
Side Note: I would love to see more organic energy beverages from essn but this is the only one at present time. However, if you enjoy organic drinks, essn also offers a line of non-energy juices.
