Marquis Energy Drink Review
Marquis has been around for a while but recently the brand has been totally reinvented and is nothing like the old version which was guarana-based. I was curious to see what Marquis has to offer a somewhat crowded energy drink market.
I'm not a fan of traditional energy drinks. They're overly sweet and taste artificial so I don't typically drink them as a way to get my caffeine fix. I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the first can of Marquis. This is a drink that I actually could enjoy. Lighty sweet, a nice flavor profile, and not artificial tasting.
Here are my thoughts on each flavor.
This flavor has a refreshing citrus flavor and is easy to drink. It has a little bit of an aftertaste from the stevia, but it isn't a detractor.
This version of Marquis Energy Drink has a nice berry flavor that isn't overbearing or overly sweet. Again, just a little of the stevia, but overall, they did a good job flavor-wise with Super Berry.
This one had a refreshing blend of mango and ginger but the ginger wasn't overpowering.
Energy Ingredients and Effect
Marquis Energy Drink uses a blend of yerba mate, green coffee, and green tea to deliver 100 mg of caffeine per can.
This blend seeks to deliver a more balanced and calm lift than drinks that use synthetic caffeine or caffeine derived from coffee alone.
After drinking Marquis, I think they've done a good job of achieving this. Since both yerba mate and green tea have calming properties, I felt alert but not overly stimulated. It was a gentle lift that lasted throughout my late morning.
Marquis has a little less caffeine per volume than a Red Bull or a Rockstar, but this isn't a bad thing, especially for people who don't want to consume high amounts of caffeine daily.
Marquis Energy Drink also contains 100% RDA of vitamin C and an assortment of B vitamins.
Overall, I think Marquis did a good job with their brand reboot. They've created an easy-to-drink and well-flavored beverage that people can feel good about drinking since it's zero sugar and organic.
