I have drank many, many energy drinks (from Red Bull to Full Throttle to Redline to you name it). I know what makes a good energy drink, and all I have to say is I’m hooked on Spike (too bad I don’t get free ones for this review).
The first thing I noticed, of course, was the taste. I have only drank the Original flavor. It’s not as pungent as Red Bull, but not as sweet as Rock Star. It’s not bad at all and most will favor the taste to other drinks. If taste was the only issue, I would choose a Rock Star. Since taste isn’t, Spike gets my vote (Spike IS STILL TASTY).
The second, and most important factor is the results-the energy I get from the drink. Spike hits the sweet-spot for me. Not too quick and jittery like a Redline, and I can actually GET energy from a Spike unlike shit like Rock Stars, Monsters, etc. I don’t feel jittery and it helps improve my reps while lifting.
Overall, I recommend a Spike to ANYONE needing a boost in energy. This beats all other drinks as Spike isn’t too weak and isn’t too strong. It’s right where an energy drink needs to be. I guess it’s the b-12 and caffeine. Who gives a shit as long it works like it does.
