Lightning Bolt Energy Drink Review

Energy Drink

Steven Seagal’s Lightning Bolt Energy Drink Review – I’m lumping together these two drinks together, just to see what Steven Seagal is going to do about it.

If these drinks actually packed any power, I didn’t notice. Sorry – but I didn’t, so it must have been minimal at best. I don’t think it’s relevant, because if you read on, you have no reason to purchase this drink.

They both have unique flavors – Asian Experience is a nasty tea flavor (what a catchy name!) and Cherry Charge (even better! Pow! Bam!) is Cough Syrup-flavored.

If you’re not a Steven Seagal fan, then don’t bother.

If you are a Steven Seagal fan (and really, who isn’t?) then – still – don’t bother.

Even if you see these on sale for $1, like I did, walk away. The cordyceps and goji berry sound intriguing, I know, but you should just wait in line, as you know I am, for the Chuck Norris drink.

Hype Energy Drink Review

Hype Energy Drink Review: How’d they score the hype.com domain is a good question. How’d they score on our EDB rating? is a better question. Short answer: this is good stuff.

Hype’s small can doesn’t pack in the power; if you’re looking for a stay-up-all-night-playing-Halo kick, this wouldn’t do. Hype works well as a daily boost – easy to drink, no crash after the energy wears off.

This drink easily won fans on the BoostAdvisor team – 4 out of 5 people really enjoyed the flavor. Its berry flavor is a refreshing change from the more common citrus taste.

Some of their marketing is lame, but they’re obviously working on it. The cans originally said “Live Life. Love Life. Love Hype.” We all agreed that this was as weak as it gets.

They removed this, but we think the smaller print could go too – “You’re ready and feeling good! All you need is an extra boost. You need a Hype!”

We thought “Believe the Hype” would be a better slogan. (ed. note – a few months after originally posting this review on the old site, Hype changed their slogan to “Believe the Hype”. We applaud them for paying attention to their fans!)

If the berry flavor doesn’t appeal to you, move on, but at least give it a try. It’s “lightly carbonated” – which really makes it easy to consume on the run. So – delicious, refreshing, and a good kick for a small can. That’s right. Believe the Hype.

Just do it. The power surge from X344 carries you for 12 hours. We’ve yet to try another energy drink that can compare.

The “X344” refers to the 344 mg of caffeine that this drink packs. A helpful guide right on the can contrasts the power ingredients to those in Red Bull, Monster, and Rockstar, so you can be sure you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck. They also give a warning – “Do not consume more than two servings per sitting” – and there are two servings per can.

The flavor takes some getting used to, but it’s worth it. The more you drink it, the easier it goes down.

We would rate the taste at only 1.5 of 5 stars – but really, are you drinking for the taste?

Crave Energy Drink Review

Crave

Energy Drink Review of Crave: A powdered energy drink brings their own formula to the high-octane beverages industry.

Mix the powder with water and you get a bright green drink with loads of smooth energy.

The first thing you taste is a Kool-Aid-like cotton candy flavor…but the first aftertaste is very bitter and medicinal. The second aftertaste is even stronger but less bitter, like TheraFlu. It is drinkable – just like TheraFlu. You can control your rations, since you’re mixing with water, and a couple testers preferred shooting the drink with a half-cup of water.

Crave comes from Vitamark, and it’s being sold like Mary Kay. A powdered energy drink is a unlikely but brilliant idea, which they’ve done a decent job of executing.

Crave comes in a little 2-serving size packet – portable, won’t get cold on you, easy to share, and it’s a much better price than its canned older siblings. It’s even healthier than most of the competition. So how does it compare on taste and energy?

The package claims their goal in creating this product is: “To give you the energy you want with no jitters, headaches or let-down, better taste (with no after-taste), a much better price, and to make it convenient & portable.” Crave is all of these things but one.

Obviously there’s much better tasting options out there. However, if you’re willing to sacrifice taste for convenience and cost, pick up a box and mix up a drink.
