Tomic Energy Shot: Explosive Energy?

So I received Tomic energy shot a few days ago, and the packaging sticks out (resembling a small hand grenade), yet will it match the standards set by nearly all other energy shots, which if you can handle the brutal taste, then you can get a little kick or will Tomic blow the other guys out of their bunkers?

Taste

The label says fruit flavor, so it must be ok, right? I popped the top and took a whiff. It smelled like an energy shot with a little fruit scent, but not really sure how else to explain it. As for taste, Tomic is not your traditional shot at all. Most shots I find to be bitter and very strong tasting, yet Tomic was very sweet. Very smooth and a quality fruit flavor. A 16 oz can might be too sweet, yet for a 2oz shot, it fits just right.

Ingredients

The advertised explosive focus and energy  produced by Tomic is supposed to come  from a combination of Niacin, vitamin B6 (2000%) and B12 (8333%) along with 1870 mg of their “energy blend” as is labeled, made up of caffeine, Taurine, L-phenylalanine, L Tyrosine, Glucuronolactone, N Acetyl L Tyrosine, , Malic Acid, and Choline.

Effect

I find many shots try to give you the quickest boost of sugar/caffeine powered energy, while that is a great way to receive that bit of energy you’re seeking, its the crash that soon follows which sucks.  Tomic, on the other hand, provided a nice boost after about 10 minutes which was much smoother instead of the roller coaster of a quick rush, followed by even a quicker crash. Tomic did a good job of maintaining a nice clean boost.

Verdict

I’m not really a huge fan of energy shots, mainly because about 90% of the ones on the market are undrinkable, yet Tomic was very pleasant. I will definitely keep a few around to get me through those never ending summer days when the weather is perfect and time at work seems to never cease, a little Tomic will be just right to explode me into an early weekend…
