Hydrive Energy Drink- Kiwi Strawberry


Hydrive Energy- Kiwi Strawberry

Picture taken in my Global Cultures class via laptop webcam, heh.

Ah, another energy drink review. Must mean class has started up again! Today we’re trying out Hydrive Energy- Kiwi Strawberry “Alertness Formula”. I picked it up in the market on UT Arlington’s campus. I needed a pick me up and due to the campus’ recent switch to Pepsi, I was having a little trouble. Most of the issue was not being able to find a decent sugar free caffeine fix. I almost picked up a low carb No Fear drink, but struggled with the concept of imbibing on a drink by a defunct Walmart clothing line.

As a last chance effort to avoid this, I checked the other side of the shop and ran across a section of Hydrive Energy drinks. At first glance, they seemed to have answered a number of pleas for energy drinks:

  1. Low cal- it’s not sugar free, but has only 30 calories.
  2. $1.59- a lower price point is always happy.
  3. Non-carbonated- sometimes I just can’t stomach harsh carbonation in the morning.
  4. IT’S IN A FREAKING RECLOSABLE BOTTLE!- I actually have a conspiracy theory that drink companies WANT us to spill our drinks in class, go flat or warm up since we can’t close it and throw it in our backpacks. It’s warm, just buy another drink, right?

Thank you for thinking of me, Hydrive. It has a good taste, though a tiny bit oversweetened, with a bit of sugar free aftertaste. You come to expect taste as an afterthought when it comes to energy drinks, but Hydrive exceeds that expectation. With 145 g of caffeine- along with the usual array of taurine, guarana and whatnot- it completely satisfies my caffeine fix. In fact, I think it works better since it’s smoother, and quicker, to drink.

Hydrive Energy is the answer to my energy drink dreams. Hydrive Energy gets a 4 out of 5 awesomes!
