reckless-energy-shotDespite the bad press lately concerning energy shots in the land down under, it still seems like they are invading the market in full force.

Reckless Energy Shot is yet another shot to take a stab at getting some of New Zealand's energy dollars. This 70ml shot promises to give me 6 hours of energy and encourages me to GO HARD or go home so I'll be typing as hard as I can and then I'll go home.


I threw back the orange blitz flavor of Reckless and it was pretty typical for a shot. It was sweet and orange with the not so pleasant artificial sweetener aftertaste. Wasn't bad though, but of course the shot market isn't known for awesome tasting products.


Reckless gets some kudos in this category because many of the shots I've reviewed here offer caffeine, taurine, and not much else. This shot gives you 2075mg of energy including 125mg of caffeine, 2500% of B6, and 833% of your daily B12. Among the other standard energy ingredients, Reckless energy shot gives you an enzyme blend.


This is where things can get interesting as there is debate on which is better; more caffeine or more B vitamins? Although Reckless only has 125mg of caffeine, I definitely feel pretty good after drinking it and I am typing HARD! I would say the energy is better than the NOS shot I reviewed a few weeks ago that boasted 250mg of caffeine, but no B6 or B12.


If they would just get rid of the artificial sweetener as V Pocket Rocket did,  Reckless would be a top notch product. Will it last for 6 hours, well maybe for someone who has no caffeine tolerance, but the verdicts still out since I had mine an hour ago. So yeah, give it a go as Reckless energy shot is one of the better shots in the Southern Hemisphere.
