My latest discovery in the realm of energy drinks is Fuel 7 Hour Energy Shot. Actually, I was so bored waiting in line at a CVS to pay for my Monster Java that my eyes fell on this. So tiny!
It comes in a two-ounce bottle that’s small enough to fit in the front pocket of your pants. I thought I wouldn’t like it because part of the fun of drinking energy is glugging it down. The label says it has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee but I experienced a much bigger kick. Even the flavor is no-nonsense, who-cares-about-taste.
The formulation is so lethal it doesn’t require refrigeration for three days after opening.
A new thing I learned from this new drink is the concept of a Niacin Flush. The Vitamin B3 increases blood flow to the skin and makes you itchy. I’ve probably experienced it before but just never recognized it as having anything to do with my enormous consumption of B vitamins. Anyway, a 60-ml bottle costs of Fuel costs three dollars!!!
I won’t be buying this again unless I need a handy, convenient package of energy that’s more powerful than a plain caffeine pill like Vivarin.
