ABB Speed Stack Pumped N.O. Energy Drink Review

Speed Stack Pumped N.O.ABB Speed Stack Pumped N.O. Energy Drink is Incredible.

Truly – ABB is at it again. You know, the same company who may have invented the energy drink.

Who has more drinks than can be counted on your toes and fingers nearly twice over. At least 16 of which are legit energy drinks. Yeah, that company.

They have two more energy drinks to add to their portfolio, Speed Stack Pumped N.O., let’s check ‘em out, shall we?

Taste

This is worrisome. The Fruit Punch and Grape flavors of Speed Stack Pumped tasted exactly as expected. They deliver the unmistakably smooth, flavor syrup-laden, uncarbonated ABB experience that I’ve come to expect.

Ok, so worrisome why? Because – thoughts are starting enter my ahead about this company’s direction. With this many energy drinks tasting so similar, we have only the convoluted supplement facts and ambiguous PR statements to tell the drinks apart.

Speed Stack Pumped N.O. Ingredients

With guarana the caffeine content reaches just past the big 3 0 0. On top of that , there’s a host of supplements like arginine, glycerol, and a gram of taurine in ABB Pumped N.O..

Effect

This is certainly a powerful drink in the ABB rank, a statement to be treated with respect. These guys know how to make a kick-ass drink and Pumped N.O. is not an exception. For the 300mg of caffeine, the effect was surprisingly hollow. By that, I mean I was not assaulted with a cerebral napalm. I was not lifted up gently from unbeknownst locations. I was just – somehow wired for about 3 hours.

This is the kind of “wired” I’ve learned to take very seriously from experience, because essentially it’s stored energy with massive potential. If you drink Speed Stack Pumped, expect the effect to be unleashed only with physical activity. Do NOT drink a bottle, and then start into another thinking activity, the effect isn’t there, because as soon as your heart rate crosses 100BPM or so you’re going to be one sorry puppy.

Verdict

Did the strong performance of ABB’s Speed Stack Pumped N.O. make up for its lackluster flavoring? Of course not, because there’s already 10 other ABB drinks that do basically the same thing Pumped N.O did for me. Sure, you could argue the drinks are primarily differentiated sitting besides your weight rack (read: they’re formulated for body building first, energy second). From my honest stance as an energy drink reviewer, however, there’s just simply too much inbreeding in every sense of the word.
