Energy Drink Review: Go Fast!

Filed in: Energy Drinks.

[Go Fast!]Go Fast! appears to be an American product, though this can seems to have been imported from Australia. It contains Australian Honey ("The best honey for optimum taste" - my inner Kiwi is making a face right now), taurine, ginseng, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, ginkgo biloba, guarana, riboflavin, niacin, and milk thistle herb ("provides good kidney and liver health"). Quite what the cumulative effects of these ingredients is likely to be, I'm not sure. It sounds like a mad scientist's idea of how to make an energy drink. It also describes itself as "The athlete's energy drink" (Note that in general caffeine plus exercise is not recommended).

It tastes... very tangy. There's a definite hint of honey there, but the main flavour is very harsh and sharp, not unlike Red Bull, and with the same lingering aftertaste (albeit still with a hint of honey).

So, what is this obsession you have with energy drinks, anyway?

I used to drink them quite a lot. Not so much any more for various reasons (this review's been sitting on my flash drive for the last couple of months waiting to be posted :)
