This is a review on Universal's new workout drink. I received this to "beta test" (3 servings). It took so long for me to get it done because I really wanted to get a first reaction review on video, and I didn't have a camera to do it with for a long time. In the video I say that it tastes pretty good, but this was a finger-lick test from the powder itself; the video shows me trying it for the first time.
Here's the video (sorry about the quality and turning, I couldn't fix it when I uploaded the video):
I thought it was really cool that the mix dissolved pretty much on its own. As you could see, I didn't have to do much shaking afterward to get it to dissolve completely. I had no settling whatsoever, so that was really cool. As I stated, the taste was kind of like vitamin water. I love vitamin water, so naturally, I thought that this drink tasted pretty awesome and blue raspberry is one of my favorite workout drink flavors next to cherry and grape.
Here are my final thoughts-
Taste: 10/10 Perfect for me.
Smell:1 0/10 Smells great, no worries there.
Mixability: 10/10 Phenomenal.
Effectiveness: 9/10 Gave me energy and endurance I guess you could say. Wasn't extremely over the top with energy for me, but it was effective for keeping me focused. I didn't get drained during my workout, so I enjoyed it.
Price: N/A I have no idea, it hasn't been released yet, but being Universal it will probably be very economical.
Final grade: 9.75 A+
This should be a great product by Universal. I personally will probably get it and mix it with EAA Nitro.
Look out for this product - 9/1/08
