RATING: 6.6 OUT OF 10. 

     We're back. After a period of not being able to find any products to review, I have located several different drinks that I can evaluate. One of which was that Monster Ultra Blue, and another is this drink called Fuga. There isn't really anything too special about this drink, at least at first glance. Let's see if it can change my mind.

     The 12 ounce can is a nice touch, but the packaging is average at best. Of course, not only is packaging design subjective, but it doesn't affect the flavor of the beverage. Speaking of flavor, there isn't one listed on the can, so I expected yet another Red Bull clone. I cracked open the can and was relieved to see that the color inside was a pinkish-red. This was an immediate indication that this wasn't another Red Bull clone I was getting into. As a matter of fact, I found the flavor to be sweet, light, and fruity. I believe strawberry is the fruit I'm looking for. Anyway, I'm extremely happy that they decided to use a different flavor besides Red Bull.

     This drink also has a pretty nice blend as well. It's definitely a lot better than your basic blend of b vitamins, caffeine, taurine, and inositol. It has 29 percent daily value of riboflavin, 150 percent daily value of niacin, 375 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 150 percent daily value of vitamin b12, 150 percent daily value of pantothenic acid, 135 milligrams of caffeine, 1,500 milligrams of taurine, 37.5 milligrams of panax ginseng, 150 milligrams of prickly pear extract, 900 milligrams of yerba mate, 15 milligrams of acai extract, 112.5 milligrams of glucuronolactone, 300 milligrams of gingko biloba extract, and 112.5 milligrams of milk thistle extract.

     While the energy blend is certainly better than the average energy drink, the caffeine content is very similar to a Red Bull. Granted it is slightly higher, but that wouldn't make too much of a difference. I only received a very mild increase in energy, but it should have a greater effect on people who haven't been trying energy drinks for over 4 years.

     I began this review by making an assumption that Fuga is an average energy drink. My assumption was partially right. Yes, it does have ingredients that you are included in some energy drinks, but for the most part are not ubiquitous across the energy drink industry. And while the flavor isn't Red Bull (thank God), it still isn't immaculate. So no, this energy drink isn't average. It's minutely above it.
