Energy drinks are fun.
They have an unhealthy reputation but I try to stick with the healthier ones.
I think Bing drinks are pretty healthy. Why? Because cherries are healthy and these include cherry juice. They also include other fruit juice sometimes and they use ginseng, too.
Before I got 3 on sale, I had only drank one of these previously before. and gave me the jitters.
But lately, I’ve been needing energy and the sale on these was hard to beat. and I’m glad I gave them another try.
The energy in these comes from caffeine and ginseng. Around 100-120 mg each.
My bad for being less than precise about the exacts but the photos are not uploading and it’s 100°F and I’m, ironically, feeling low on energy right now. I could use one of these drinks. but I’m actually cutting back on caffeine.
My favorite Bing Energy drink is the Apple one – it’s tastes so fresh. It really tastes like fresh apple juice is included in this.
They’re all delicious, though. And they’re all recommended. In moderation. 🙂
Wow! The OG Yerba Mate connect – Guayakí – is making it a point to transform with the times. Ie: health – friendly energy drinks available sparkling and in a can.
I purchased some smaller cans but they also had 16oz drinks available too. Honestly, the big ones probably would have been a better buy as the small cans and large cans cost the same amount.
Anyway! My excitement was HIGH when I saw these! I’m always hunting for a healthy energy drink.
Guayakí is a trusted brand and Yerba Mate is a natural source of caffeine so this was a mostly guilt-free taste test.
The first flavor I decided to try was the lower calorie one – although I didn’t pick it because it has low calories. I chose it because the flavor has sage in it! As you may know, I love sage. So it was a no-brainer.
The 15 calorie Ginger Sage flavor was okay. The lower sugar was apparent; this was not a sweet drink. But, it was bubbly!
It was probably the most refreshing beverage I’ve had that also had carbonated water in it.
Now for the part that matters most – the caffeine! This has 80 milligrams per can, about the same amount as a quality cup of coffee.
I did receive a boost from this, but it wasn’t super energy that had me ready to lift buildings.
What it did do for me was provide enough power to finish my work that day with a clear outlook.
The second flavor – grapefruit ginger – was the better one on all fronts. First it was full calories. Only 45 calories and each calorie was delicious.
The thing about these drinks is that the flavor on the can doesn’t translate very strong.
The Ginger Sage drink – while refreshing – did not taste like ginger or sage.
The Grapefruit Ginger drink was more flavorful and had the characteristic grapefruit flavor, just sweetened. I couldn’t really taste any ginger heat though so that was a little disappointing.
I guess the real question would be: would I purchase these again?
The answer is yes, I would. Sure, the caffeine is not over-powering but I don’t want it to be. Smooth, organic energy is achieved in these cans and the flavors are enjoyable – not too sweet at all and very refreshing.
As the search for healthy energy drinks continue, Guru slides in favorably with ginseng and echinacea as ingredients. Check it out:
This review will cover the taste and the energy!
First, the taste.
It was weird.
A strange after taste is pretty common with fizzy energy drinks. This one is one of the least tasty to me.
It’s not very sweet, which I’m okay with. But the after taste was kinda bitter. I ended up adding apple juice and ice to mellow it out. It worked! It tasted like a seltzer soda.
As for the energy part, that was good! I did feel increased energy from this drink.
There was no jitters, no weird feelings… It was almost as if I didn’t have any kind of energy supplement!
The result was that I wasn’t sleepy anymore. I drank this around 4 in the afternoon and was still able to sleep well at 10pm. Sounds like a winner to me!
Man, I was excited when I saw this in a local convenience store.
There was NO WAY I could pass an Almond Milk Starbucks drink without giving it a try!
I love coffee!
& I used to love these Starbucks drinks! My sister would buy them for me and I enjoyed every drop.
As I became more health conscious, dairy milk disappeared from my diet.
And these pre-made drinks disappeared too.
Taste: Sweet and creamy. They taste just like the dairy ones. I wish there were more flavors to choose from.
Would I re-purchase? Hmmm let me see how much energy I gain and I’ll get back to you 😉
*Update: Yesss, Caffeine! ⚡️
On the health side, there are weird ingredients that the cleanest eaters may be wary of… Like cellulose gel.
However for me, I don’t really mind at this time 🙂
Will you try one?
