Krank’d Body Fuel Energy Drink Review – Excellent hybrid sports drink, and the grape flavor is very enjoyable.
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. Don’t expect to feel a big power boost though. If you are hitting the weights today, this would be the perfect drink to bring along.
The EDB team has historically had an affinity for grape-flavored energy drinks. This one’s no exception. It could be that grape masks all the less-tasty but powerful ingredients thrown into these drinks. Try the Body Fuel Grape drink during a workout, and try to restrain yourself from chugging the whole bottle down. It’s not easy to make this one last!
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. The Grape flavor is great. If you’re more interested in occasional power in a can, look elsewhere for a bigger boost or better taste.
