AMMO Purple Dragon Energy Drink Review – AMMO gives you the shortcut to an action-packed day, in an enjoyable grape flavor.
AMMO gets credit for brilliance in the Power department. While some energy drinks have more caffeine, few pack so much into a 1 fluid OZ bottle. They also came up with a caffeine rationing system. A scale on the side of the bottle that lets you see how many milligrams of caffeine you’ve consumed, up to the full 171 mg. It works too, whether you ration it or shoot it all at once. A bottle of AMMO woke me effectively today.
The Purple Dragon drink is grape-flavored, as you might expect. At EDB, we’re suckers for a good grape energy drink. Now, being a condensed low-carb drink, it wasn’t as enjoyable as a sugar-filled grape NOS. But I did enjoy the grape, straight and diluted in water. It’s easy to drink and possibly my favorite of the AMMO flavors.
Each of the drinks are labeled with “Low Carb”, which is fair. 7g sugar, 25 calories. This is far more diet-friendly and healthy than a Rock Star or Full Throttle, and it delivers about the same caffeine kick.
Unlike 5 Hour Energy & clones, AMMO works well as a mixer – even stirring it into water creates a decent drink. Their marketing angle is that this was developed originally for the US military. I’ll buy that. The testers reported no jitters and no crash, as the box claims. Of all the drinks I’ve tried, AMMO is the one I’d most like to bring on a backpacking trip, for all the reasons above. I’ll be ready to rock and roll. Any flavor will do.
