If you have been paying attention, you probably know of my
love for obsession of caffeine. I am a regular at taking energy drinks and other energy products such as energy mints or energy shots. Well, I recently discovered Crave Energy Drink, a caffeine drink mix in powder form. I must admit that the packaging really pulled me in with this one, with its attractive green and black colors (favorites of mine--if you already didn't know that from the theme of my other blog). :)
What's cool about Crave, is that it comes in powder packets that you can easily carry with you while traveling. It's much easier than bringing a can of energy drink with you. You can just mix right in your water bottle!
You simply mix either part or all of one packet into water to make the drink. If you prefer a strong quality of taste, you can mix with 8 ounces of water. You can also mix with up to 16 ounces for a more diluted taste. I have found 12 ounces to be just about right for my taste preference. The taste of the drink is a bit of a mix of sweet and sour. Because it is not sweetened by sugar (it is sweetened with FOS, or Fructooligosaccharide), it is not overly sweet by any means. It has what I would describe as a lemon/lime taste with a sourness to it. Of my friends who tried it, almost all thought the flavor was superior to other energy drinks. Here is what the drink looks like:
The packet contains two servings, which I found to give a huge boost when taken at one time (even if you take caffeine regularly). If you don't normally take caffeine, one serving by itself gives a great boost. The entire packet contains slightly more caffeine than a can of Amp Energy Drink.
What's also cool, is that it only has 9 calories per serving! In addition, since it contains practically no sugar, it doesn't give headaches or crashes afterwards (I specifically noticed that). So check out the specifics of the drink:
So, what do I think of Crave Energy Drink? I think it is a great alternative to the energy drinks on the market today, and it is convenient, has a great flavor, and ACTUALLY WORKS! :) I highly recommend it!
