RATING: 7.2 OUT OF 10.

     What's up everybody? Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to the fans and readers of Addicted 2 Energy. I hope you had a great holiday, I know I did. My stocking was equipped with two energy drinks I had never tried before. One of which is a drink endorsed by Insane Clown Posse and the other is called Vegas Fuel. Today, I'm going to review the latter.

     Typically, these rather obscure and not very popular energy drinks tend to mimic the flavor of traditional energy drinks, using the nearly-indescribable flavor simply known as, "the energy drink flavor." Surprisingly, Vegas Fuel looks and tastes nothing like an ordinary energy drink. It pours out red and has a very unique flavor. It reminded me of what a carbonated sports drink might taste like. It had that same artificial fruit flavor to it. I was certainly impressed.

     Vegas Fuel really stepped up to the plate in the taste department, let's see if they can do the same with the energy blend. It has 190 percent daily value of niacin, 500 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 154 percent daily value of vitamin b12, 100 percent daily value of pantothenic acid, 1,904 milligrams of taurine, 142 milligrams of glucuronolactone, 142 milligrams of caffeine, 96 milligrams of panax ginseng extract, and 96 milligrams of guarana seed extract, and 48 milligrams of inositol. So, 10 ingredients and nearly 2,500 milligrams. I certainly can't complain there.

     So far, Vegas Fuel has played its cards right and delivered a solid energy blend. The only interesting thing to point out is the caffeine content is slightly less than the industry standard of 160 milligrams. So, does it work? Well, I had this before our big christmas party and it boosted my energy levels just a little bit, if at all. I usually don't feel a whole lot from energy drinks anymore, despite my smaller frame. But don't worry, I will continue to review energy drinks.

     Overall, Vegas Fuel is actually a pretty solid drink. I enjoyed the unique, yet pleasant fruity flavor that differed from the original medicinal energy drink flavor. I also thought the blend was pretty decent and used all of the standard energy drink ingredients. The kick was a little lackluster, but if you are new to energy drinks, this should provide a decent uplift. The rating? 7.2 out of 10.

RATING: 6.8 OUT OF 10.

     After almost a month without a review, I am happy to say that it feels great to be back. I have not had the appropriate amount of time recently to compose a nice review, but I am here now, ready to review a full-blown, sugar-laden energy concoction. But before we get into that, let's discuss some brief site news. If you have been noticing an advertisement at the top of your screen, that is an advertisement from Google Adsense. I am in no way endorsing the advertised products. I am simply trying to make a few bucks. Anyway, back to the review. Let's just dive right into it. This, is Xyience Xenergy Cherry Rush.

     I have always been impressed with the flavors presented by Xyience, so it would only be reasonable to think that this would be more of the same. As it turns out, I did enjoy the "cherry rush" flavor that Xyience created. It is quite sweet, and despite being sugar free, it is rather difficult to detect the artificial sweeteners. My only complaint is that it feels rather viscous in your mouth,  almost a little syrupy. Other than that, it's a pretty tasty beverage.

     Well, let's find out what I threw in my body this time. It's got 200 percent daily value of niacin, 500 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 320 percent daily value of vitamin b12, 1,000 percent daily value of pantothenic acid, and a 1,350 milligram energy blend consisting of taurine, caffeine, glucuronolactone, guarana extract, panax ginseng extract, inositol, and l-carnitine. Caffeine content is rated at around 200 milligrams per 16 ounce can.

     To be perfectly honest, despite having a good amount of caffeine, I did not feel a whole lot from this drink. Now my caffeine tolerance is extremely high, especially for my size (5'9", and pretty skinny), so this should easily work for the average consumer. As for me though, I just did not feel much effectiveness.

     Overall, Xyience Xenergy Cherry Rush is a pretty decent beverage. It's high points are its sweet, sugary, cherry flavor, and its high amount of b vitamins. But then again, all energy drinks have high amounts of b vitamins. But really, I'm not complaining. So let's just give it a rating, shall we? 6.8 out of 10.
