Another super fruit concoction that is supposed to give you a whole ton of energy. So how does the Fruta Vida drink work for me? Um not super great as an energy drink, but as a health supplement it would do better. I actually ended up reviewing this in my drinks section because I just didn't feel it fit in as an energy drink. It doesn't really get me pumped up, but I am sure if I was looking for my fill of anti oxidants or whatever I would be happy. Sometimes I don't really know why I get sent some things to sample, this is one of those not really and energy drink, energy drinks. So if you like the taste of berry skin with no berry fruit in side you will likely like the taste of this drink, with its slightly bitter not very flavorful taste. That isn't to say it tastes bad it is just a pretty weak fruit flavor with more bitter taste than fruit taste. It does have much of a sweetness anywhere in the drink, which I guess I still associate with fruit. Anyways this has the Acai berry which many have been raving about recently and seems to have been springing up in various energy drinks lately. So awesome for acai, you have made it to the big show, the US health food market, best of luck. It does have Yerba Mate so whatever energy you get from the drink should stick around for a little while, but expect it to be a very small lift. It is from Brazil and I love Brazil so I have to give it some credit for being extra exotic and such, I can barely get the through of Brazilian swimsuit models out of my mind to finish the review. In fact I am just going to quite and fantasize for awhile because I think this is a good enough review for a fruit drink that isn't and energy drink.
