FITT Energy Shot comes in a standard 2 fl oz shot bottle that is shrink sleeved with an average looking label, and boasts the same quick energy with no crash that every other energy shot does. They don't stop there though, F.I.T.T. (what it stands for I have no idea) is setting themselves apart by adding Resveratrol to their proprietary blend.
Resveratrol is derived from the skin of red grapes, (also peanuts) and is found in many red wines, most noticeably those from Spain. It's rumored to help extend life and to have anti-cancer qualities, although none of this has yet to be proven (In humans). Even if it DID do any of these things the amount you would have to consume daily would exceed 3 grams. And according to Wikipedia this has only been proven to lower blood sugar. To put this in perspective FITT energy has only milligrams of the supplement derived from a Polygonum cuspidatum root extract.
If you need a better source that might be more reputable then WIKI you can find Oregon State University's take on Resveratrol.
Let me wipe my forehead and get on with the product. The initial taste is strong and medicinal due to the use of preservatives, and I'd recommend drinking it cold. The after taste is probably more pleasant then initial taste. After a couple of sips it was much easier to drink and I started recognizing the pomegranate orange flavor.
This shot is instantly effective as it contains as much caffeine as a small cup of coffee. I felt immediately uplifted on the long drive from the OC to the Valley and was very gratified. There was no noticeable crash and I was very happy with its effects.
Bottom Line- I rated F.I.T.T. Energy shot a 7.4 out of 10 because of its terrific kick and average taste. Keep in mind ANY energy shot is going to be extremely concentrated and could take some getting used to. Bottom line, this 2 fl oz shot gets the job done.
