Bing Energy Drink Review
Well I have reviewed over 200 + Energy Drinks so far and the Bing Energy Drinks seems to be quite unique and it seems to be a healthier alternative to other energy drinks. So what makes this 12 ounce Bing Energy Drink unique. Well the make up of the drink including calories and ingredients sets this one off. First off there are only 40 calories in the entire 12 ounce can so it is somewhat of a cross between a regular and diet energy drink. Three other ingredients also set this drink apart. One is Acai Berries which are a popular source of anti-oxidants. Your right, there are other drinks out there with Acai Berries, but there are not too many that also have flax seed oil which is a source of fiber and also beneficial in lowering cholesterol levels. The last is the Bing Cherry itself which is also an anti-oxidant and source of potassium which can help alleviate cramping for athletes. So the Bing Energy Drink does bring a couple unique ingredients to the table, but how does it perform in the taste and kick categories?
Bing Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well first off this drink is made with Black Bing cherries. It only contains 5% juice from these cherries but mix makes for a great tasting drink. I have had Cherry Bawls (just yet to do a review on it) and all I can say is that the Bing Energy Drink has a much more appealing taste. I don't know if I appreciate it more since I live somewhat close to Door County, WI (which produces excellent Bing Cherries!), but the taste is definitely one I enjoyed. If you have ever had any sort of black cherry beverage than you are sure to enjoy the taste of this one. I know I have yet to review an energy drink with similar taste. No medicinal aftertaste in this one either. Taste Rating - 9.4
Bing Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well the black bing cherry flavor is quite tasty and refreshing and the people at Bing did not skimp in the energy category either. With 120 milligrams of caffeine, 1000 milligrams of taurine, guarana seed extract, plethora of B-Vitamins and ginseng root extract this drink delivers a more than adequate kick. Although it is not among the strongest energy drinks out there it delivers plenty of kick to get you moving. The addition of the above mentioned ingredients (acai, flax seed) also makes Bing a healthier alternative to other ED's. Oh and did I mention they use Cane sugar (healthier alternative to regular sugar). No energy crash here! Kick Rating - 8.8
Bing Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
A very good taste and an above average kick combined with flax seed and acai berries for a healthier alternative makes bing a viable choice for an everyday pick me up. Don't forget about there being only 40 calories in the entire 12 ounce can! I wish they were more readily available in my area, but it looks like the only place I will be able to pick another case of these up (at least for now) is online (unless you live in Colorado). So if you are looking for a new ED to try, look no further than this one. I believe you can pick up a case of 24 12 ouncers for about $40 delivered to your door! Final Judgment - 9.1
Sidenote: I actually enjoyed this one so much that I drank 4 of them over the weekend. Usually I rotate between ED's!
