    Great Alternative to Energy Drinks... Even Pre-Workout Stim?


    So... I'm totally a Monster junkie... but I don't really like the blue variety and the green has 200 sugar cals that I just don't need during this recomp.

    I went to Walmart and saw this stuff called "Power Edge" energy drink mix. It comes in small packets that are made to be mixed with a bottle of water. Cost $1.89 for a 10 pack and the Wild Berry flavor rocks.

    Ingredients:

    10 cals/packet
    Caffeine 160mg
    Inositol 70mg
    Taurine 1000mg
    Guarana 180mg
    Panax Ginseng 180mg

    Certainly not a hardcore stim by any means... but it's a nice cheap alternative to energy drinks and I actually feel the effects of this stuff as much as a can of the green monster.

    I use it as a coffee substitute at work.

    Anyways, just thought some of you fellow monster addicts or chronic coffee drinkers might want to try it out.

    Peace.

    Not 100% sure... but Maltodextrin appears to be the sweetener.

    Is there a certain sweetener I should stay away from?
