helps ladies pee standing up. Not really the same thing, although too mush of one might lead to another. This Go Girl is a drink which helps the ladies get clear skin, has less caffeine and calories than most other energy drinks to provide an "uplifting yet relaxing experience" and raises money to breast and ovarian cancer research . Also, we find a most unique combination of flavor in a self described pomegranate and starfruit combination.
I have had drinks that promote weight loss before, and ones that are meant to get you full of energy but completely relaxed too (like a legal speedball?) But this is the first one I have had that has advertised help for your skin to get a radiant glow. I work in a dark room staring at computers all day, followed by leaving at night and doing chores in the evening My K-9 teeth are starting to grow and My doctor has resorted to forcing me to take Vitamin D pills from lack of Sun. Unless you call my ghostly unhealthy pallor some sort of hip Rave-worthy radioactive glow, I am sure my skin desperately needs it.
I thought the packaging was OK, but I heard nothing but good things from all my female coworkers. They likened it to Tab in terms of design. I thought the light blue of everything was nice enough, but I guess it is very pretty. What I did like was that it was very easy to read, listed the caffeine, was a good layout and quality printing job. They had a slogan that was not pandering and caffeine content. It was not double faced, but it was a big label and on one of these super slim 12 ounce cans, it does not make much of a difference.
I was not sure what to expect from Go Girl Glo. The can did not give anything away either - what with the star fruit flavor. Mind you - I LOVE STAR FRUITS. almost obsessively. I think between artichokes and star fruits I would need to eat nothing else in my entire life. Maybe I just like pointy fruits and veggies. Either way, I was excited to dive into this - but did not really detect much star fruit flavor I was thinking this might be grapefruit or citrus when I poured it into a glass, but even the aroma did not give anything away. It smelled nice, but not like any particular scent, excepting for a light berry tartness.
It tasted much like it smelled - like a light sweet berry with some citrus notes. I know that this is close to the profile of a standard Red Bull flavor, but it is different - more subtle - maybe just starfruity! The medium carbonation really brought up the flavor and helped it keep things light and happy. There was no bitterness at all, and the slight sour notes miced well with the light sweet taste. By the time I got to the end of this drink I wished there were more and sucked the can dry of all the remaining drops. This was one of the nicest tasting energy drinks I have had in a while - and made me crave a star fruit even more; Damn it being only May (stupid seasonal fruits)...
When it advertised on the can that it had less caffeine, that had me worried. I mean, why get an enery drink at all if you are going to keep out the caffeine - that's the point! Fortunately, they did not lower their caffeine content that much - to just 75 mg, which is about half the stregnth of coffee. They also lowered the other energy ingredients too, with 500pg Taurine 500, some CoQ 10, and I imagine Aloe Vera and Vitamin E is to give your skin the glow. Now I have drank many many aloe vera drinks in my life - and not once did I hear that drinking them will do anything to you. If that is what they are really going for, I call hogwash. Same thing holds true for the citrimax. It made me initially not hungry when I waited for lunch, but the effet was short lived, and made me VERY hungry an hour later.
In terms of energy, this did leave me wanting. There was no other energy ingredients, and was pretty light on the other vitamins too. I did not really feel this one after downing it, and did not relax me either, as their can suggested it would. As a light starfruit drink goes this is the bomb - but for an energy drink it was too light on the good stuff.
