Quick Energy Shot Review

quick-energy-shotHere’s my review of Quick Energy Shot.

So it’s 2am and I’m bumbling around London, to be honest not in the most able of states and I find Quick Energy Shot.

As always with something new I get quite excited and to be honest I think the adrenalin rush from finding the drink did more for me then the drink itself… , but I’ll go into that later.

So anyway, I buy the little Quick Shot bottle, for the extortionate price of £2.99 or $6.00 and downed it.


For what you pay (yes I’m going to keep going back to the price), it should taste like god. However,  I was disappointed. Quick Shot smelled like orange concentrate and tasted like I was drinking orangey acid. It’s only 59ml and to be honest, I found my self quite tempted not to finish it. However, craving the little morsels of caffeine I did. Remember I was a little drunk at the time so normally anything goes, and yet I still found quick shot to be an unwelcoming taste.

Quick Energy Shot Ingredients

Quick Energy Shot also managed to do the one thing I hate, put that it had the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, after all, how vague can you be. After much snooping around I found out it had about 175mg of caffeine per bottle (59ml) which is okay I guess. On top of this it had the normal B vitamins and antioxidants, nothing over the top to be honest.


Apart from the wince I made whilst drinking it, Quick Shot had little effect on me. That might have been due to the fact that it had no sugar in it, or the fact that the release of the caffeine etc. was too slow. However, I have to say I am disappointed, especially with what I paid for it (told you I’d mention cost again). It says on the bottle ‘no crash’ and I now know why… because it doesn’t give you a boost to start with. *inserts a sad face*


So I paid a bundle for a small orange bottle with a clock on it, great. Apart from that Quick Energy Shot serves no other purpose then for me to write this review and tell you that you get no bang for your buck, in fact, throwing the money will probably hit things harder. If anything this is proof how annoying the shot market is.

    Wow, sounds like one of the worst energy shots with one of the highest prices.

    I love Quick Energy. I’ve had to stay up late into the early morning and it gives me such a great boost.

    I suggest you guys try XS Energy Shots.

    The Quick Energy drink works for me on a regular basis. I turn to it to help me stay alert and focused when I am out late. I never get a ‘rush’ of energy, but it always keeps me from feeling sleepy. Which is exactly what I want, anyway.

    I’ve used this quick shot stuff in the gym, and it really does work!!

  • Jack

    Why did I get mine in a sexpo show bag? Would it even do anything ? Make it better or worse?

    This is a bad review clearly written by a person who is looking for the quick and jittery ‘hit’ one gets with the average sugared-up-to-the-point-of-crazy energy drinks.

    This energy drink is literally the best I have ever used. It’s my go-to standby for new exercise routines (it really puts the motivation into long-distance running), cycle touring, academic work and days on too little sleep. It works like a ‘perk-up’. After drinking it, you’re no longer sleepy and demotivated, tired muscles get un-tired, the mind gets clearer, the yawning stops and suddenly you feel you could run a marathon after a long day’s work. On it, you can run longer, study harder, work faster and thoughts are clearer.

    If you want a sugar high, have a coke – or a Monster. This is on a different level and it really gets the job done.
