Krank’d Body Fuel Energy Drink Review – Fruit Punch isn’t our favorite flavor, but it’s still a pretty great concept.
In its marketing materials, Krank’d claims to have “created its own category.” In the flooded energy drink market, that’s a big claim to make. I think they have a right to say this, more so than any other drink I’ve tried in recent future. This isn’t the straight caffeine / taurine blast of a NOS, and it isn’t a water / high fructose corn syrup hybrid in a sports bottle. It’s Gatorade’s smarter, healthier cousin. The 7-in-1 on the label refers to B-vitamins, essential minerals, electrolytes, antioxidants, l-glutamine for muscle repair / recovery, reverse osmosis water, and a “tri-carb blend” for “time-released energy.” Bottom line, this was a nice addition to my day, resulting in a smooth energy with no high or low. If you are hitting the weights today, this would be the perfect drink to bring along.
I am a fan of fruit punch-flavored drinks, for the most part. This one was a little disappointing. Perhaps due to the minimal sugar, but this is a far cry from the sweet fruit punch that I was expecting. It’s a bit like fruit punch watered down, with a little bite to it. On the hand, if you’re using the drink for the ideal purpose, during a quick break from pumping iron and running hard, it’ll taste just fine.
A standout. Krank’d Body Fuel is sweetened with sucralose (ie Splenda) instead of high fructose corn syrup or aspartame. There are 6g of sugar and 37 calories per bottle. There’s niacin and caffeine included, but not more than you’d want. I can drink this one guilt-free any time.
Krank’d Body Fuel is highly recommended for the highly athletic, as a regular addition to your diet. If you’re more interested in occasional power in a can, look elsewhere for a bigger boost or better taste.
