Review: XS Energy Drink, Electric Lemon Blast

During the tail end of my run tonight, I jogged (at this point it may have been more liked hobbling) by two guys in suits. As I passed, one of them started to chat to me about running.

As I continued to mosy along, he explained he was a distributor of XS Energy drink and they were out drumming up business. He explained that the drinks are of course great for you, have few calories, and no sugar.

After his little pitch, he explained that they were out selling samples for $2.00/each, but because I was out jogging he'd let me try one for free.

Always the trusting type, ready to take candy from strangers, I accepted.

At the end of my run, I checked the bottle and it looked like sane stuff. It was even marked Kosher, so I took that as my sign, and drank up.

The lemon flavor kind of tasted like a sort of unusual ginger ale. It was different tasking, and I have to say, pretty tasty. Though that may have been the endorphins talking.

Seriously, the drink tasted good, and if your into these things, you should give them a try.

The guy gave me his card, so if you want info contact Jamie at optimalchoice@ltdkate.com. Just tell him the runner he was kind enough to offer a free sample to, sent you.

    And it has more caffeine than Red Bull - no wonder I was feeling so good after drinking it.
