Well this is a very interesting energy product. It isn't a drink, it is like an alka seltzer pill that you drop in your drink and then it turns anything you want to have into an energy drink. It doesn't get you crazy and it much more mild of a pump up than other energy drinks, but it works well for studying, staying focused in class, and work. It seems to do OK in about every drink flavor i tried it in. It makes things a little fizzier than normal, but all and all it doesn't change the overall taste much. Works great with lemonade. Since this drink really doesn't have a flavor of it's own its mixing ability is limited only by what you make with it. I was pretty impressed, namely for how unique and portable this solution is. The little pill come in packets similar in size to alka seltzer pills (or more entertainingly condom wrappers) and you can bring them pretty much anywhere since they are so small. I keep some in my school bag, so if I am falling asleep, between classes I can pick up pretty much anything to drink and get the boost i need to pay attention in class. I didn't get jittery with this which was nice seeing as how i was using it to focus. It is a nice little solution if you never know when your going to need something to perk yourself up. So if you really drink energy drinks just for the pick me up to get you through the day this might be exactly what you want. Perfect for the on the go college student. If you really like the flavor of some energy drinks or are looking to party and get mixes in bars stick with something you know.
