EASE IN ACQUISITION—2
Very popular, apparently, in the Denver area—but seeing as I don’t live there, it’s tough to come by. Special thanks to BigRedBoots at possessedbycaffeine.com for the sample, especially considering that these aren’t cheap!
I appreciate the company that put out this shot, mostly because I think they come out with some decent hot sauces. All ploys used in packaging their hot sauces are used here with the same positive effect, inducing within me a healthy mix of eagerness and respect for the fact that this is probably not going to be a mild flavor experience.
My feelings on the flavor here are profoundly mixed. First thing that I get when I open the bottle was a scent with a nice spicy bite—and seeing as I love spicy, I’m eager to take a swig. The first little bit did not impress me—kind of a vague fruity flavor that I couldn’t place. But then, a second flavor takes over—that of red pepper jelly.
Let me tell you, there is almost nothing in the food world I love more than red pepper jelly—especially with those light air crackers and cream cheese. If common sense didn’t restrain me, I think that, sushi, and a few other items would be all I ate.
In summary, Kick Ass Energy barely misses becoming the perfect energy shot. If I could do away with that initial fruity taste that defaces the rest of the experience, I would be jumping off the walls for joy right now.
Actually, the 100 mg here deliver a fairly respectable kick, all things considered. It got me awake quite quickly after a long night of studying, and had me buzzing about my business as though I had gotten to bed and arisen early.
Three and a half hours—no crash!
THE SHOT OVERALL—8
Again—this comes so freaking close to being one of the best energy products I’ve ever had—I’m just so put off by the blah fruitiness I tasted at first that it’s hard to think about how I enjoyed the rest of it. Still, if you get the chance, please do try it—it’s worth it, even with the $4.99 price tag.
