American Blast Energy Drink

american-blast1Need your jolt and a dose of patriotism? Then look no further than American Blast – that is, a jolt with the caffeinated varieties. American Blast seems like a standard energy drink with a bold name, but packs a few interesting ingredients within, and without!

Could American Blast have us seeing red, white and blue? Or is it just another energy drink? Let’s find out.

Flavor

Light fruity taste with a bit of a grape accent. Sweet and definitely enjoyable – it isn’t what you would expect from an average energy drink. It could even be likened to candy, which isn’t surprising since high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is used as a sweetener.

Ingredients

Each variety contains a 2500mg proprietary blend of energizing ingredients, including the usual amino acids (taurine, tyrosine, etc.) and B-vitamins. However, it also includes a few interesting ingredients. One that we don’t see too often is mucuna pruriens, a tropical legume known for its positive effects on the libido and mood stabilization, as the seeds contain L-dopamine. Also intriguing is the fact that 2 of the American Blast varieties are caffeine free! Some may not like the use of HFCS to sweeten the non-sugar free varieties.

Energy

The caffeinated American Blast gave me a reasonable lift, very similar to a 250ml Red Bull as they both contain 80mg of caffeine. I felt much more able to ignore distractions and concentrate on my studies, which I think is a direct result of L-dopamine’s mood stabilization properties. There is no caffeine “edge” and I didn’t crash one bit. The caffeine free varieties did not give me much of a boost, but I did notice subtle effects from the mucuna pruriens.

American Blast is definitely a tasty, patriotic way to get your energy fix. Major props for sure – I just wish it didn’t have HFCS. Stay tuned for their energy shot review!

    Though you didn’t post a review, this drink was at least mentioned on this site back in august https://www.caffeineinformer.com/2008/08/an-american-blast-in-russia wow, took a while to get a review of it….

    also, forgot to add, there is no reason to consider high fructose corn syrup any worse than ordinary sugar, usually corn syrup is nearly pure dextrose (aka glucose) and , HFCS in food usually is 45dex 55fruc… there isn’t really a difference between the metabolic use of Fructose vs. Dextrose vs. Sucrose(table sugar)… only difference is that Sucrose is a disaccharide of the molecules for Glucose and Fructose combined…the ONLY health concern for the HFCS is that a human body doesn’t trigger the “Full” feeling from the digestion of it, meaning some people may consume more than normal amounts not realizing they should be full.

    THE PULIC SHOULD AVOID BUYING THIS DRINK, AMERICAN BLAST ENERGY DRINK, BECAUSE IT IS MAFIA RUN AND OPERATED AND ALL PROCEEDS EARNED THRU SALES GO TO SUPPORT THE NEW YORK MAFIA AND OTHER BRANCHES OF THE MAFIA ACROSS THE COUNTRY. THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICAN BLAST IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SHILL OWNER, A FRONT PERSON, WHILE THE REAL OWNER IS A BLOODTHIRSTY, NOTRIOUS MOBSTER WHO WIL SOON BE CONVICTED TO LIFE IN PRISON.

    Yes this drink was started by the daughter of long time Gambino Crime Family associate Joesph Watts, who used different lasts names like Russo for business dealings. His daughter is a front for the organization, and may do real work, but the beverage company allows the Gambino Crime Family to launder proceeds from various rackets and other illegal activities. Joseph Watts was a friend of former late Gambino Family don John Gotti,and has served the crime family in various business dealings, money laundering, and murder, that has rose him to a high standing as an associate of the family. By using money indirectly or directly supported by crime money, this energy drink was created, and continues to serve its purpose as a “cover up” that helps conceal the crime family and release heat from federal agents, prosecutors, and IRS.
