Spartan Energy Drink Review

spartan energy drinkThere’s not many things in this world more hardcore than a Spartan.

Have you seen the movie 300 or heard about the controversial Spartacus TV series?

So what took someone so long to give their energy drink such a hardcore name? Well for whatever reason, its finally happened, so will Spartan Energy Drink be the fuel for a army of warriors or will it leave me asleep on the battlefield?


The design of the outside of the Spartan can shows originality and creativity, yet the contents scream generic. You guessed it, a Red Bull rip off. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so it shows that RB is on the top if so many companies are trying to copy their taste, yet to these companies, I say BE CREATIVE!

Spartan Energy Drink Ingredients

The ingredients of Spartan seemed to be a bit higher and different than what you normally find in an RB. Calories (100) are about average, yet Niacin (30mg), Panax Ginseng (200mg), Guarana (200mg), Inositol (35mg), and 90mg of caffeine were all a bit higher than you would normally find. And for an energy drink that only means one thing, a NICE buzz…


After drinking so many of these 250ml (8.4 ounces) “RB-clones” you kind of know what to expect energy wise, yet Spartan Energy Drink was a bit different. The energy boost kicked in quite early and lasted surprisingly longer than I expected. Spartan had me going solid for about 3 hours.

Spartan Energy Drink Verdict

The kick from Spartan was a pleasant surprise, yet the taste to me was just too much of a turn off. Put some effort into the contents of the can instead of focusing simply on the labeling. The outside of the can may make a purchase, but it’s the contents that will have those people either coming back for more or moving on to another drink.
