Energy Shots

.50 Cal Energy Shot

Now here’s a truly unique energy shot. .50 Cal, like a 50 caliber bullet.

Never before has a energy shot been so creative. The bottle really grabs your attention with its creative bullet shape. Yet will the unique creative outside reflect a unique, creative taste inside?


Usually I find that shots are loaded with a number of crazy ingredients and the taste is lacking. Usually the price of a quick jolt is digesting a 2oz bottle of garbage, yet .50 Cal breaks that energy shot mold. I found this shot very refreshing.

The taste was very sweet fruit flavor without being to carbonated. The flavor says blueberry pomegranate, which I did get a hint of, but thought it should have been labeled fruity because it seemed there were many more flavors than just 2.

.50 Cal Energy Ingredients

.50 Cal is Just 8 calories while giving you 240% of your daily Vitamin B3 and B5 and 9600% of your B12 (really, they had to give you 9600%?). Also contains a energy blend of Taurine, Ginseng, Guarana, Ginko Biloba, Inositol, Glucuronolactone, L-Carnitine , Glutamine. Whats more, this shot also contains a antioxidant blend of acai berry extract, goji berry extract, blueberry extract, grape seed extract, and pomegranate extract. Did I mention 120mg of caffeine as well?


Like the bullet .50 Cal Shot is shaped after, it shot through my system and quickly exploded. It did give me that good energy jitter, yet no complaints here. The boost easily lasted a couple hours, propelling me through a late night with the guys.

.50 Cal Energy Shot Verdict

Usually I’m not a fan of shots as the taste isn’t worth the energy rush, yet .50 Cal was quite good. I could easily drink a regular size energy drink of .50 Cal, yet I’m not sure my heart could take it and what would I do with the 38,400% of my vitamin B12? I don’t normally reach for a shot, yet I can’t wait to open my next .50 Cal Energy Shot. This Shot comes HIGHLY recommended!
