Generator Energy Shot Review:
So completely exhausted this morning after being sick the past couple days... which makes it a perfect time to review another Energy Shot. So today's victim, I mean shot is the Generator Energy Shot from Rhino Mike. Who is Rhino Mike? Well I researched their site, but I was not able to figure it out? Maybe they are talking about the MMA Fighter? If anyone knows please feel free to chime in below in the comments section. Anyways, back to the review... When I was researching the Generator Energy Shot I saw statements such as "The Perfect Energy Drink" and "14 cutting edge energy supplements" and "Generator fans have reported up to 12 hours of increased energy." Well, this little 2 ounce shot is a prime candidate for review. So let's put it to the test.
Generator Energy Shot Review: Taste
To me a perfect Energy Drink has to at least have a decent taste. Albeit not the deciding factor for me... it does help. So the label on the 2 ounce Generator shot bottle says "tropical blend." I may have to disagree with this statement. Although there is a blend, it did not taste tropical. There were fruity and somewhat tasty hints of flavoring, but there was a pretty strong medicinal aftertaste. The aftertaste was not so bitter where I wouldn't consider drinking one of these shots everyday... at least as long as it performed good in the kick category. Taste Rating - 7.7
Generator Energy Shot Review: Kick
So the taste was less than stellar, but will the kick "powered by 14 cutting edge supplements" be what I am looking for? Will it keep me pumped up for 12 hours as it did for other Generator Fans? Well, I am still pretty groggy from being sick the last couple days, so Generator has an uphill battle. Regardless the 14 "cutting edge supplements" include somewhat standard energy shot ingredients. The complete list of energy ingredients is: Acetyl L-Carnitine, B5 (Pantothenic Acid), B6, B12, Beta-Alanine, Caffeine, Glucuronolactone, Inositol, Niacin, L-Arginine, L-Phenylalanine, N-Acetyl L Tyrosine, Panax Ginseng and Taurine. Although a lot of these ingredients are somewhat standard, I don't think I have seen them all present in a single energy shot before. So was the little 2 ounce Generator Shot able to pick my lazy sick ass out of bed and keep me motivated at work? You bet it was. The kick was fast and furious and lasted for several hours. Now I didn't experience 12 hours of energy, but I am probably far from your typical user as I pump myself full of caffeine in pretty much any form I can get it. Still, a great kick. Kick Rating - 9.0
Generator Energy Shot Review: Final Judgment
Well it may not be the perfect energy drink for me as I was not the biggest fan of the taste (albeit, taste is subjective). Nonetheless it performed in the category that counts the most... kick. Besides online, I am not sure where you can pick these up. Through the Generator store, you can pick up a 12 pack for $28 shipped to your door. So that equates to a little over $2 per bottle which seems to be pretty standard nowadays when buying in bulk. If you know where else you can get this shot feel free to chime in below in the comments section. Final Judgment - 8.7
