Energy Drink marketed by Sheetz Stores. Comes in three flavors

Review

This review was completed by an independent drink reviewer and does not necessarily reflect the views or beliefs of this site.

diettogo-008I'm a big fan of the "juiced" energy drinks.

Given the choice, I usually always go for Rockstar Juiced or one similar as I think the juice covers up the taste of the energy ingredients quite well.

When I went to Sheetz convenience store to see what energy drinks they had to offer, I discovered their store brand,  Liquid  Z. They had three varieties to choose from, but I automatically went for the orange mango 50% juice.

Taste

After the first sip I was like, "what is this...."!?!  No where on the can did it say "diet" or "reduced calorie", but the unmistakable aftertaste of sucralose was evident. Sure enough, this drink is mostly sweetened with the stuff. Now, some of the other "juiced" drinks use some, but not at this overly detectable level.  I'm not a fan of diet drinks at all and I was kind of angry that I was tricked into drinking one! As for the flavor, it was pretty weak and didn't taste much like juice at all...

Ingredients

The can also states "high octane", but that is a promise that does not come true with a measly 100mg of caffeine, no taurine, and weak vitamin B levels.

Effect

I tried this drink several hours after I had my morning coffee. I noticed a slight increase in alertness, but also a nice dose of the jitters.

Verdict

Store brand drinks are usually cheaper and this holds true with Liquid Z, but to me this was a waste of money as I could have spent $.50 more and had a Rockstar Juiced. Weak energy ingredients and deceptive can labeling make this my all time worst energy drink.
