Continuing on the drinking binge of caffeine, I worked my way through some more each day. My lab assistant wanted to help by bringing me something to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

Noname Energy drink:

This can is one of the most interesting ones in the lot. It comes in a red can with a gray bar on it so you can write your name in that spot. This is a great idea for anyone who shares a fridge and have a fear of having their drinks stolen. The liquid is red with a hint of cherry flavor.

Energy enhancements include: Taurine (750mg) inositol (100mg) Guarana (25mg)

Other note worthy information: Sugar (18g) Sodium (200mg)

Stewies:

The yellow can yields a light pink colored liquid. Upon first taste it felt like someone forgot the sugar in the kool-aid; it had a weak sour berry taste. The sour and soda water taste was more over powering than the berry flavoring as it took me a bit to tell what the flavor truly was. I really was not impressed with it and thought the Jolt blue was better.

Energy enhancements include: Taurine (1000mg) caffeine (120mg) inositol (50mg) Guarana extract (25mg) Panax Ginseng (25mg)

Other note worthy information: Sugar (28g) Sodium (170mg)

Flaming Moes:

Once again its one that has a berry taste, except this time we have something with high carbonation. In fact, it's so high that it burns the mouth. I was expecting more of a burning from a spicy flavor like the Noname. This one is also a light pink color.

Energy enhancements include: Taurine (1000mg) caffeine (120mg) inositol (50mg) Guarana extract (25mg) Panax Ginseng (25mg)

Other note worthy information: Sugar (28g) Sodium (170mg)

Nerd

This is a carbonated drink with a lime green color and taste. This was one of the better tasting drinks I had.

Energy enhancements include: Taurine (1000mg) caffeine (80 mg) inositol (25 mg) Guarana extract (25mg) Panax Ginseng (25mg) L-carnitine (15mg) Glucuronolactone (600mg) Energy Blend (1.76g)

Other note worthy information: Sugar (28g) Sodium (70mg)

Duffs

The last drink and last of the cartoon spawned names. The color of the drink is orange just like the taste. The flavor could have been stronger and sweeter. The sour hint was not over powering.

Energy enhancements include: Taurine (1000mg) caffeine (120mg) inositol (50mg) Guarana extract (25mg) Panax Ginseng (25mg)

Other note worthy information: Sugar (40g) Sodium (190mg)

Overall the drinks have given me a bit of extra energy with some tasting better than others. The top two that I might have to get more of are NERD and PimpJuice. The ones I will avoid in the future are Flaming Moe and Jolt Blue.

Now the other form of caffeine intake I liked were the Foosh mints. The worst were the Crackheads espresso beans. Some of the other things you might want to look at are the sugar and sodium levels on these drinks. Most of the bitter and sour ones had higher levels of sodium and it is something that needs to be watched by those with high blood pressure.

Once again thanks to Xoxide.com I was able to have a few weeks of jittery bliss. I am off to Caffeine rehab now.



Pros:

  • Pimp Juice : Great taste, Green Color, 81mg of Caffeine
  • NERD: Good taste, 80mg Of caffeine, - High sodium
  • Foosh Mints: Works as a mint and packs with a punch of energy


Cons:

  • Flaming Moe, Bad taste & over done carbonation, High Sodium
  • Jolt Blue, Bad flavor, left an after taste, + is High Caffeine level
  • Crackheads beans: Bitter taste
