Caffeine in Drinks

Arriba Horchata Energy

Discontinued? This item may no longer be available.

Arriba Horchata Energy is made by the Arriba Company in California.

For non-spanish speakers, this energy drink's name my be a little foreign.

Arriba means up and horchata is a popular vanilla and cinnamon flavored Mexican drink.

I saw this drink in my local 7-Eleven and decided to give one a try.

Arriba Review

Arriba Horchata is unlike any energy drink I have ever tasted. If Mexican rice pudding was a drink, this is what it would taste like.

It is delicious, but so sweet and creamy that I felt like I was drinking a dessert rather than an energy drink.

Horchata Energy's Active Ingredients

  • Taurine
  • Guarana
  • Ginseng
  • Inosotol
  • B Vitamins 

The 76mg of caffeine comes from the guarana.

The high sugar content and the caffeine in Arriba Horchata have me a little wired to tell the truth, but with sugary drinks there often comes a crash of which I'm bracing for.

I can see Aribba Horchata being a hit with the hispanic community, but whether this drink will translate to the general public remains to be seen.
