Zipfizz is basically an energy drink! It's that simple. It is a powder that comes in small tubes that gets mixed with 18-20oz of water. Here's what it looked like as I opened my package:
|They gave me this water bottle with 6 tubes of the powder|
They claim to not only be an ordinary energy drink but a HEALTHY energy drink as well. Here is a comparison chart on Zipfizz vs. some other drinks.
As you can see, it doesn't have many calories, is full of antioxidants/vitamins and has natural caffeine. Oh yeah, and the 41,667% of B12 energy seems to dominate the others. So, since I had nothing to lose, I mixed up my first batch...Pink Lemonade!
The first thing I noticed was the "Fizz" that popped the top off the water bottle as I shook it up. It was almost like it was carbonated. I took a sip, and it wasn't too bad! I was surprised and impressed. I decided to try one of the flavors each day to be able to report on each flavor. Here are the outcomes as follows:
Pink Lemonade: Not too bad, but I could REALLY taste the protein!!! 6 out of 10
Grape: Tasted REALLY good!!! 10 out of 10
Berry: Pretty good! 8 out of 10
Citrus: This was just alright. 7 out of 10
Orange Soda: This one actually tasted and "felt" like orange soda. 9 out of 10
Creamsicle (Limited Edition): This was the best. The flavor was excellent! 10 out of 10
They never left much of an aftertaste and never felt heavy in my stomach. I did not really use them while I was training, so I can't really give an idea of performance, although I did seem to feel a bit energized while drinking them.
Conclusion: After testing out Zipfizz, I feel like they have a decent product to buy. It was easy to mix, they tasted pretty good, and I had no side effects. That being said, I feel like my "go-to" sports drink will still be Powerade. I recommend trying Zipfizz or just checking them out on their website at www.zipfizz.com.
Disclaimer: I was not paid to review Zipfizz or give it a good review. This was just the report from testing out this new "healthy" energy drink.
