Blow Energy Drink Review
Turns out I was able to get my hands on the new blow energy drink. Yeah, it's hard to find. I think you could get your fixx easier from a small town drug dealer than the people at blow energy drink. They put no thought into distribution at all. Sure there is some marketing hype out there, but the idea of an energy drink with a drug reference is nothing original. We all remember the Cocaine Energy Drink. It just looks like the blow energy drink is just trying to capitalize on the left over press from that fiasco. The government should be all over the coat tails of this one before anybody else gets a chance to even try it. Well enough of the powdery fluff and lets get on with the review of the blow energy drink to see if it is all hype or if it is actually worth buying.
Blow Energy Drink Review: Taste
Well the concept of blow is that it comes in a plastic vile and you mix it with your favorite beverage. So in order to get the taste down I just mixed it with water. What does it taste like? Well basically what you get is something that tastes like a watered down 7-up with a horribly bitter after taste. At least with the Cocaine Energy Drink you got a cool throat numbing sensation. With Blow all you get is a mouthfull of bitter tasting powder. Yeah, it is actually pretty "vial" which is amusing since that is what it comes in. Of the over 150 Energy Drinks that I have reviewed, this is by far the worst tasting one I have tried. Taste Rating - a pitiful 5.1
Blow Energy Drink Review: Kick
Well I have said in the past that taste is not everything when it comes to an energy beverage. So let's see what Blow has to offer in the kick category. Well the drink contains 240 milligrams of caffeine and about 2000 milligrams of taurine. That sounds like a lot but it is really not that much. The Cocaine Energy Drink had 280 milligrams of caffeine and that barely made it into my top five. If you want a strong energy drink try Wired X 505, 5 Hour Energy, Fixx, Redline Energy as they will deliver a far better and longer lasting kick. Heck, even Rockstar and Monster Energy have drinks with a bigger kick and caffeine content. To top it off the energy I did receive from mixing blow and water was short lived. Maybe lasted an hour or two if that. Kick Rating 7.5
Blow Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Well the whole drug related energy drink thing has been played out before. The taste is "vial" and the kick is nothing to brag about. Top that off with poor distribution and a high price tag of $2.50 per vial (plus shipping) and you not only have a poor performing beverage, you have an expensive one to boot. Maybe they are taking the whole "illicit" drug thing too far by having poor distribution and high prices. Overall I was not impressed and would recommend any one of the other 150 or so drinks before I recommend this one. Maybe instead of producing a bunch of hype they should have worked harder on creating a better tasting more effective product. It shouldn't be long before this product is taken off the shelves or renamed. All it will take is the government to find out about it which means more than a couple people in the U.S population will need to find out about it first. Along with distribution, maybe they should invest some capital in advertising! Sorry guys, the whole thing has been played out before and with much better results I might add. The only thing that this powder reminds me of is an overpriced pixie stick! Final Judgment - 6.4
