First of all: Happy New Year to all of you! Hope your 2013 goes as well or better as your 2012. So I promised all of you a while back that I would review a new energy drink from Gamma Labs called “G Fuel.” Unlike other energy drinks, you have to either pour a scoop or pouch of G Fuel into about 10-12 oz. of water. If any of you remember my review about Crave, G Fuel is similar to that. G Fuel comes in three different flavors: Fruit Punch, Blue Ice and Lemon Lime. Seeing as all three flavors have the same ingredients, I will review them in the same post:
Fruit Punch: This is definitely one of those flavors you just can’t screw up, no matter who makes it. An infant could perfect this flavor. Okay, that’s stretching it a little, but honestly, you can’t really screw up Fruit Punch. A number months ago, I ordered a sample for G Fuel and requested Fruit Punch. I haven’t regretted that decision by the way. I love this flavor so much, I ordered it in a tub of 40 servings. Come to think of it, I have also ordered a few tubs of it and even a few pouches of it as well. You could say that’s how much I love it!
Blue Ice: When I ordered my first tub of Fruit Punch, they had a special where you get a box of 20 sticks free. So I selected Blue Ice over Lemon Lime, just because I expected Lemon Lime to taste the same as any other company’s Lemon Lime. But I will touch on that next. Back to Blue Ice: The first pouch I tried seemed like a rather chalky blue raspberry flavor. Not sure if the flavor is correct, but that’s how it tastes to me. The Blue Ice from the tub actually tastes better than that of the pouches, or as Gamma Labs calls them, sticks. Just my opinion, but don’t take my word for it. We all have different opinions on everything.
Lemon Lime: I have to admit: I expected G Fuel’s version of Lemon Lime to taste frightfully similar to Gatorade’s version. I am happy to say I was wrong. Usually, I don’t really listen to the opinions of others. But when Brittney Palmer, UFC Octagon Girl and spokesperson for Gamma Labs, says this is her favorite flavor, you have to check it out for yourself. I’m not saying I always take advice from good-looking women, but how can you say “No” to Miss Palmer? I sure as hell couldn’t! Hey, at least I admit it. But anyway, moving on. G Fuel’s Lemon Lime is amazingly awesome! It really is. The first time I tried it, I was hooked! G Fuel’s Lemon Lime to me would be like crack to a crack addict. The good news for me is I don’t need to go through rehab afterwards. I have to admit this as well, but I actually love it better than Fruit Punch, which is also a banging flavor! Lemon Lime screamed with flavor and went down nice and smooth, just like a fine whiskey!
