This is my review of Rockstar Juiced Guava. First off, this drink comes in a purple 16 ounce aluminum can. The color inside, which is shown above in the photo, is a redish pink color that is actually pretty bright. Rockstar Juiced Guava is 50 percent juice and the juice is a mixture of apple, pear, and guava fruit juices. As for the taste, well it took me a while to pinpoint the flavor but I think I have it. It is a sweet, fruity, sour, and candy-like taste that was quite delicious. The fruity flavor reminded me of the fruityness you get from a Jolly Rancher. Overall, this drink tasted great but what is in it? It has 40 milligrams of vitamin b3, 20 milligrams of vitamin b5, 4 milligrams of vitamin b6, 12 micrograms of vitamin b12. It also has a 2,700 milligram energy blend which consists of 2,000 milligrams of taurine, 300 milligrams of gingko biloba leaf extract, 160 milligrams of caffeine, 50 milligrams of guarana seed extract, 50 milligrams of inositol, 50 milligrams of l-carnitine, 50 milligrams of panax ginseng extract, and finally 40 milligrams of milk thistle extract. That is a total of 12 energy enhancing ingredients which all tied in to provide me with an ample kick, not the strongest on the planet but definitely noticeable. If you don't drink energy drinks as much as I do then the combination of caffeine, b-vitamins, guarana, etc., should give you a nice kick. So, to conclude, you have a great taste, a great energy blend, a decent kick, and at about 2 dollars and 29 cents a can it has a reasonable price as well. Rating? 8.4 out of 10.

RATING: 7.6 OUT OF 10.

Here is my evaluation on the Bom Dia Conquer Healthy Energy Drink. This drink comes in a unique 11.5 ounce plastic bottle. The color inside is a deep purple and red and it is 100 percent juice. The juice comes from Acai which is one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. The taste is actually quite splendid as you get a very unique mix of Acai juice and maybe some Mango Juice as well even though I doubt there is any in there. This drink gets its energy from yerba mate, guarana, b vitamins, black tea, and taurine. I drank this bad boy fast and on an empty stomach to get the best kick. Actually, it wasn't that bad. I have no idea how much caffeine is in this beverage but my guess is maybe 60 to 80 milligrams. I don't see this beverage having more than 100 milligrams of caffeine. Unfortunately this drink does cost 2 dollars and 99 cents which is about 1 dollar more than market leaders Monster and Red Bull. This drink should give you a kick that is at mid-level intensity and it should last about 3 hours. This drink is most likely a mix between a functional beverage and an energy beverage. I also like that this drink has 100 percent juice which makes me feel that you are actually getting something out of it. So, to conclude, Bom Dia Conquer gets a 7.6 out of 10.

Well this is one heck of a milestone as this is my 100th review. First off Xyience Xenergy Cran Razz comes in a silver 16 ounce aluminum can and has a very distinct flavor to it. I could taste a nice mixture of cranberry and raspberry with minimal carbonation and a delicate sour touch. In fact, right on the can it says "Great Tasting" and they were right. Well it tasted great but what is in this drink? It has 40 milligrams of vitamin b3, 10 milligrams of vitamin b6, 10 micrograms of vitamin b12, 100 milligrams of vitamin b5, 320 milligrams of sodium, 30 milligrams of potassium, and a 2,680 milligram energy blend consisting of taurine, glucuronolactone, caffeine, guarana extract, panax ginseng extract, inositol, and l-carnitine. This time I took this drink on an empty stomach and the 200 milligrams of caffeine definitely delivered a solid kick. No this is not the strongest energy drink on the market but it is pretty good. The kick lasted about 4 hours and there was no crash. Overall I do like Xyience Xenergy Cran Razz. It has a great, crisp flavor, some nice energy ingredients and a solid kick. I think I will give my 100th review a rating of 8.3 out of 10.

RATING: 7.3 OUT OF 10.

So this is my 99th review which means my 100th review will be tomorrow and I am not going to tell you what it is. As for my 99th review I will evaluate the Xyience Xenergy Apple Jak'd Energy Drink. This drink is the Official Energy Drink of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, or U.F.C. for short. This drink comes in a hardcore black 16 ounce can. The taste is a little hard to explain but the best I could come up with was liquid Apple Jolly Ranchers with maybe a hint of seltzer water. The carbonation on this drink was very minimal which made for easily guzzling. So, at the top of the can it says Xtreme Energy Drink so it must have tons of crazy ingredients and tons of caffeine. Well it has 40 milligrams of niacin, 10 milligrams of vitamin b6, 20 micrograms of vitamin b12, 100 milligrams of pantothenic acid, 320 milligrams of sodium, 30 milligrams of potassium, and a 2,700 milligram energy blend which consists of taurine, caffeine, glucuronolactone, guarana extract, panax ginseng extract, inositol, and l-carnitine. Well, it does have a nice list of energy enhancing ingredients but I wouldn't go as far as calling it an "Xtreme Energy Drink". The caffeine content of this drink is 200 milligrams per 16 ounce can. The kick was pretty decent but I have definately had better energy drinks than this. It was only a minor boost but if you are somebody who only drinks energy drinks maybe once or twice a month than this drink might be for you. It has that classic super sweet liquid candy flavor that some energy drinks have and a nice energy blend. Unfortuntely, it failed to give me a substantial energy boost. I will give Xyience Xenergy Apple Jak'd Energy Drink a rating of 7.3 out of 10.

RATING: 8.4 OUT OF 10.

So, this is my review of Monster Java Loca Moca. To start, this drink comes in a brown, aluminum 16 ounce can and has an iced coffee colored liquid inside. This drink tastes phenomenal and it is non-carbonated so it is easy to chug. The taste is similar to a Starbucks Mocha but it is more creamy than the Starbucks. Overall, this drink really pleased my palate like all the other Monster Javas. Well before we get to the kick, what is in Monster Java Loca Moca? Well, it has 450 milligrams of potassium, 3.1875 milligrams of vitamin b2, 37.5 milligrams of vitamin b3, 3.75 milligrams of vitamin b6, 11.25 milligrams of vitamin b12, 1,000 milligrams of taurine, 400 milligrams of panax ginseng, and a 5,000 milligram energy blend consisting of l-carnitine, glucose, caffeine, guarana, inositol, glucuronolactone, and maltodextrin. Wow, a really nice blend but did it give me the kick in the pants that I needed? Well, the kick was alright but nothing over the top. It gave me a mid-level boost that lasted about 3 hours. However, you have to take in to consideration that I am a caffeine junkie. I don't mean to brag or anything but I can ingest 500 milligrams of caffeine a day and still be able to sleep at night. So this drink should work pretty well for the average person. Rating? 8.4 out of 10.

RATING: 8.3 OUT OF 10.

So, you may be asking yourself, why is this guy reviewing Fuze on an energy drink blog. Well, first of all, I review more than just energy drinks, I review all sorts of cool beverages. The second reason is that I review functional beverages and Fuze fits into that category. Fuze looks to be relatively healthy as it has only one artificial sweetener in it and the rest of the ingredients seem to be ok. It is not pounded with sugar like Red Bull, Monster, Rockstar, NOS, or Full Throttle. The taste is something that is out of this world! It is one heck of a delicious blend of sweet cranberries and raspberries with a succulent touch of acesulfame potassium, the artificial sweetener used in Fuze. This drink was light, refreshing, and non-carbonated so it went down smoothly. So, I mentioned before that this is a functional beverage, but what is in it that makes it that way? Well, It has 43 micrograms of chromium which helps you get energy from food, vitamin c which boosts your immune system, 23 milligrams of l-carnitine which is an ingredient used during metabolism, and 462 milligrams of super citramax which is an extract of an Asian fruit. So, did Fuze give me a good boost? No, but that is because it is not really meant to give you a boost. This drink is all about taste and health benefits. I like their functional blend and it makes me think that I am actually getting something out of this thing besides 12 teaspoons of sugar. So, with that being said, Fuze Cranberry Raspberry gets an 8.3 out of 10 for tasting phenomenal and having some health benefits as well.

I have to be honest about this one: I have never heard of Bom Dia until today. Bom Dia is an energy drink that is based on the amazing berry called Acai. Interesting enough, most people don't know how to pronounce Acai. Well, it is pronounced Uh-Sah-EE. So there, now you know. Bom Dia comes in a 11.5 ounce plastic bottle and the liquid inside is a deep purple. The taste is very pleasant. I don't know how to describe it besides saying it tastes like Acai Juice. If you are sick of the sticky, syrupy flavor you get from Monster or Red Bull, then give this a try. Bom Dia also has a nice little energy blend to go along with the great taste. It has 300 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 300 percent daily value of vitamin b12, green tea, l-theanine, and guarana. Now, I know that guarana is basically natural caffeine but I have no idea how much caffeine is in this thing. After reading the ingredients I noticed that guarana is the 3rd ingredient and this thing also has taurine in it. So, did this give me a nice kick? Well, it was hard to tell. I even forgot I had it so that is a problem right there. I didn't expect this thing to give me tons of energy and I was right, it gave me next to zero energy. So, to conclude, I will give Bom Dia Transcend a rating of 7 out of 10 because of the nice taste and health benefits.

RATING: 8.6 OUT OF 10.

Yesterday I received multiple packs of Revive Energy Mints. Before I get to the taste and kick portion of this review, just what are Revive Energy Mints? Revive Energy Mints are caffeinated mints that have three of the world's most powerful antioxidants: Acai, Mangosteen, and Goji. So, before heading to school I popped on of the mints into my mouth and got a delicious cooling sensation that lingers for a bit and is not too strong. Overall this was quite a tasty mint. Oh, and by the way the mints are light blue and about the size of a dime. So, what is in these mints that make are supposed to make them so energized? Well, it has a 101 milligram energy blend which consists of caffeine, gaurana, green tea, Goji, Acai, and Mangosteen. 85 of the 101 milligrams of stuff in the energy blend is caffeine. So, did it work? I would say so. It pulled me out of the morning slump and powered me through Conceptual Physics, Academic Strategies, Sophomore English, and finally started to wind down through United States History and Geography, my 4th hour class. This product should give you a solid 3 hours of energy if not more. One thing that I really like is the "8 hour power pack". It is a pack with 2 Revive Energy Mints so you get 170 milligrams of caffeine (more than a Monster Energy Drink) and a 202 milligram energy blend. BOO YAH! Basically, Revive Energy Mints are a perfect classroom, workout, or truck driving companion. 8.6 out of 10.

RATING: 8.1 OUT OF 10.

So yesterday I reviewed the original Red Bull Energy Shot so today I am trying out the Red Bull Sugar Free Energy Shot. First off, this 2 ounce bottle comes in a plastic container that looks like a miniature Sugar Free Red Bull. As I take off the top I am hit with a scent of artificial sweetener and that classic Red Bull smell. When I slammed it down I got that nearly indescribable Red Bull flavor with a hint of artificial sweetener. There was absolutely no medicinal or bitter flavor to speak of. Well before we get to the kick, what is in this bad boy? Well it has 20 milligrams of niacin, 5 micrograms of vitamin b12, 5 milligrams of pantothenic acid, 80 milligrams of caffeine, 1,000 milligrams of taurine, and glucuronolactone. Not to mention only 2 calories (5 Hour Energy has 4) and no sugar. I thought I would put Red Bull Sugar Free Energy Shot to the taste by slamming it before doing some yard work. I would have to say that it worked as I got a mid-level boost that lasted for about 3 hours and 30 minutes. Not bad for a shot with only 80 milligrams of caffeine. If you would like to know what Red Bull Sugar Free Energy Shot is actually supposed to do to you then I will tell you. It is supposed to give you sustained energy for hours. It also Improves performance, especially in times of increased stress or strain. It increases concentration and improves reaction speed and it stimulates metabolism. I am not sure it did all those but I do know that it gave me energy. So, to conclude, I am going to give it a rating of 8.1 out of 10 because it has a great taste and the kick is not to shabby either.
