5-hour Energy Berry

July 28th, 2018

With these 5-hour energy shots it really doesn’t seem to matter what flavour they say it is – what you get is a quick burst of bitter flavour down your neck followed by a pick-up a few minutes later. And that’s what really matters… you do taste the berry I guess, briefly, but it’s not important or much different to the other flavours!

5-hour Energy Orange

July 21st, 2018

It says 5 hours on the bottle, but this beauty got me through a 6 hour drive along the M4 on a busy bank holiday Friday evening. As you’d expect from a shot, it’s more about the instant caffeine hit whilst minimising bladder impact than the flavour which makes it a perfect driving companion.

365 Liquid Energy Shot: Pomegranate

July 7th, 2018

Pomegranate flavoured drinks are alway approached with apprehension by me. I usually find them too bitter and especially in shot form. I was pleasantly surprised that this one wasn’t too bitter! Don’t get me wrong, is was still bitter, but nowhere near as strong as I’d imagined.

Guayaki Yerba Mate Shot: Wild Berry Reishi

June 30th, 2018

Full marks for originality, but sadly this drink was one of only three from memory that I couldn’t finish. It was very bitter and tasted pretty nasty to me, I had about half the bottle before I gagged. Maybe I was in the wrong mood for it, but I had to chuck the rest away. If I ever come across the original (or any other variant) I’d give them a go out of curiosity.
