Flavorful Juicy Energy Drink

This is a very refreshing and stimulating energy drink made out of real fruit juice and several other natural and artificial flavors. I've tried several other carbonated fruit juices, and am generally very happy with this category of soft drinks. I enjoy the strawberry banana flavor of this drink, and I think that these two fruit flavors naturally compliment each other. However, I was a bit disappointed that the actual juice that was used in this drink was apple juice, with strawberry and banana coming in as added purees. So this drink is not quite what it's implied, but I am nonetheless still satisfied with its flavor.

The amount of caffeine that you get from this drink (80 mg) is comparable to similar-sized energy drinks. It is exactly the same as for the same sized can of Red Bull, and per ounce it's comparable to the 16 oz can of Rockstar. It also has about the same amount of caffeine as a 1.5 oz cup of espresso. So if you've used any one of these other drinks, the impact that Jamba will have on you will probably be similar.

When it comes to calories and sugar, this carbonated juice is probably on a low end compared to other energy drinks. 90 calories/20 g sugar is below Red Bull (115 calories/26 g) for instance. In order to enhance sweetness this drink also uses stevia extract, but the overall sweetness is not overwhelming at all.

Overall, if you want to get all the effects of an energy drink but don't enjoy any of their "edgy" flavors, this natural juice flavored drink will be a very good alternative.

I am a big lover of Jamba Juice products and looked forward to this can of two of my favorite flavors. It seems to lose a lot from the freshly made drink from the Jamba Juice shop. The biggest drawback is that it is carbonated which really detracts from the flavor and makes the ingredients taste less than fresh. Probably if they eliminated the carbonation it would be a lot better. Hopefully, the next product I try will be better.

This Jamba Juice is not a bad tasting energy drink.  Unlike some of the cola based energy drinks, this concoction is a fruity flavored, somewhat sweet tasting energy drink that certainly does put a little pep in your step.       It also has the advantage of claiming to contain almost all natural ingredients and as a result, probably is a bit better for you than the other energy drinks on the market.       So if you are into energy drinks this …
