In my time drinking energy drinks, I’ve tried a pretty wide range of brands and flavors. I’ve had your Monsters, your Amps, your Red Bulls and even Fred Durst’s Xtreme Drink To The Extreme. OK, I made that last one up. I was trying to see if you were paying attention. But a new type of energy drink I’ve seen lately is a more health/fitness conscious type of beverage. Today, I’m taking a look at the cherry lime flavor of Xyience, an energy drink that I’m still not sure how to pronounce. (Is it Zi-ence? X-science? X-ziensze?)
How Does It Look?
Now, I know that you can’t judge a book by its cover. Everything from the Ugly Duckling to Shrek has taught us that. At least, I think that’s what they were trying to teach us. Where was I going with this? Oh yeah. There’s a lot you can do with your energy drink’s can, as we’ve seen with other brands. Even simpler designs such as the Monster logo have plenty of creativity put into them with variations on the different flavor’s cans. However, Xyience decided to go the simple route. The very simple route. As in there’s not really a lot that stands out about it. What it needs is a nice big logo like a …dumbell? Or an X with…muscles? I don’t know, I’m not a professional logo-maker. But it could use something.
How Does It Taste?
The first can of Xyience I tried was the cherry lime flavor, a taste you don’t see too often. In fact, most energy drinks don’t have many flavors at all. A lot of them are just “energy drink” flavored. Well, I must say that Xyience’s cherry lime was a refreshing surprise, a good blend of the flvors that tastes more like a healthy soda. Additionally, you have to consider that this is a sugar free and calorie free energy drink. Most of the time that also means flavor free. Or you get that “diet” aftertaste, which nobody likes. Well, with Xyience, you get a flavor that’s better than your run of the mill energy drink, but without that diet aftertaste. Makes me shudder just thinking about it.
How’s The Energy?
As I said, I’ve been a connoisseur of energy drinks for years now. And as a certified caffeine junkie, you’d think that it would take a lot to give me a jolt of energy. Well, (que plot twist music) I can honestly say that Xyience gave me a pretty big burst of energy in the morning. And, considering I only got 5 hours of sleep the night before I drank it (don’t ask) that’s saying something. I was alert, awake, and ready to get work done. Well, actually I just sat on the couch all day. But with plenty of energy!
Do I Recommend It?
Besides its underwhelming appearance, Xyience cherry lime really surprised me with its flavor and energy boost. The flavor of cherry lime, which I’ve always been a fan of, is a great choice for an energy drink. And, despite having no sugar or calories, the flavor remains unchanged. And that’s something I never thought would be possible with science. But, as it turns out, it is possible with…Xyience.
