Gatorade Frost Arctic Blitz

Gatorade Frost Arctic Blitz

I seemingly only drink Gatorade when I'm sick. Everyone except me is getting over a gnarly case of the 2016 GI bug. If it hasn't gotten you, it's gotten someone you know and it's a real sonofabitch. I'm just suffering from massive fatigue which is miles better than what everyone else has dealt with.

What does this taste like, though? I don't know. Mystery fruit? Does any Gatorade taste like anything? There might be some arbitrary melon in there but as far as anything I can pinpoint? Nope. "Fruit flavored" and that's as far and as much as I can do. Is it bad? Nope. It's not the best Gatorade I've ever had but it's far from the worst. This went down smooth and I'd like to think it gave me what plants crave, electrolytes. My body is fighting whatever atrocious virus the Western New York region is currently plagued with and I need whatever help I can get. Soup and Gatorade. Help!

Soylent Coffiest

Soylent Coffiest

Here I am sitting in my pod waiting for my morning rations to be distributed. Oh, here it is now. If you’re reading this, then you’re probably in the past. Sometime in the early 21st century I presume. You know how there’s a bunch of horrible things going on in the world, but there is also a bunch of really rad stuff as well? Well the rad things just aren’t enough and everything falls apart. There are wars, natural disasters and eventually civilization collapses. Small groups survive and meet up to form a new society. Since most of the food sources have been wiped out the scientists among us create these beverages to fill our dietary needs. It’s important to keep a sense of humor in these dire times, so they named the drinks Soylent, after the old Charlton Heston movie, you know before he went all gun crazy.

The normal rations taste like soy milk, which is to be expected, but in the mornings we get a bit of a treat and get the Coffiest version of them. It’s pretty much the same thing as the original, but with coffee added. It tastes like a nice soy latte. It’s hard to argue with it when it’s basically the only flavor we get these days. Along with that we get our nutrients as well as the same amount of caffeine that used to be found in a cup of coffee. Well, when you used to be able to find such a thing. At least it doesn’t taste like diet poison with the sucralose they use.

The future is a horrible place. Enjoy the world while you still have it. Eat all the fruits and vegetables you can find, because in the not too distant future all you’re going to taste is soy and coffee. Honestly it’s not that bad and it could easily be much worse.

Soylent Drink

Soylent Drink

I’ve watched enough futuristic science fiction movies to know that Soylent is a sign that we are actually living in the beginning of a dystopian society. Soon the Singularity will occur and humans will become slaves to our robotic overlords. Fear not though all of our nutrition will comes in one convenient beverage, Soylent. To be fair the company hasn’t quite cracked the code completely, but they are on their way. Each bottle of this ready-to-drink meal in a bottle provides 20% of the daily nutritional requirements that a human needs. This company is the future and it is the definition of efficiency in nutrition. Sure if they could get it down to pill form it would be the craziest thing ever, but as it stands right now this liquid has everything you need to survive and even helps with digestion, provides energy and does everything you need to function.

As for what efficiency tastes like, the answer is simply the soy milk that is left over after you eat a bowl of oat based cereal. I kind of expected something a little different, but in dystopia taste is not a concern, merely survival. It’s not an offensive flavor, it just kind of bland, but in a way that does not concern you.

We are living in the future and things are only going to get more horrible in the world around us, but fear not Soylent has our backs and will make sure that we get the nutrients we need in the wasteland that is to come.

Qurb Dietary Supplement

Qurb Dietary Supplement

Look, it finally started snowing and in two days from now the holiday season starts. That means that you are more than likely going to be eating a lot of garbage over the coming month or two. All of those active activities you participated in all summer that got you into somewhat okay shape are all going to be thrown out the window. You’re going to pack the pounds back on and get squishy all over again. It’s the unending cycle for those of us who live in parts of the world that have four seasons. I can’t say if it really works or not, but Qurb is here to help. They are dietary supplement shots designed to help curb your appetite as well as promote weight loss. I can assume it’s not a magical product and you also need to exercise in tandem with drinking them, but any help is good help in the war against holiday cookies and pies.

The power behind Qurb comes from a combination of green coffee beans and fiber, plus vitamins and minerals. The green coffee beans help to promote weight loss and the fiber help to curb our appetite. Essentially this is a healthier, more natural version of the diet pills that ran rampant in the 90s. One can only assume that it won’t ruin your life like the pills did in Saved by the Bell.

I was shocked that this didn’t taste as horrible as I expected it to. Most shot drinks are concentrated nonsense, but this has a somewhat decent flavor. It’s almost vaguely citrus, with a vitamin taste to it. It’s nothing you would want to sip on for pleasure, but it’s not hard to get down either.

Brave that long winter and use these shots to help keep your cookie addiction in check. Come the nice weather you won’t have to put in as much work to get back into the nearly healthy body that you’ve always wanted.

Nothing But Real Oat Chocolate & Protein

Nothing But Real Oat Chocolate & Protein

Here we have a protein drink that was developed not as a post workout beverage, but as a way to curb hunger. If it were part of some zany new diet it would be called a meal replacer. I like to just call it delicious. As the name suggests, everything in this bottle is completely natural with no GMOs or anything artificial. They also go as far as to make it dairy and soy free. In the late 90’s when I first went vegetarian and a lot of friends were vegan we would have killed for something like this. I feel like we all existed on French fries and garbage house salads most of the time. It was an era of unhealthy compassion for animals. This would have made life so much easier. While I may not have had it then, I will certainly appreciate it now.

This is mostly made up of oats and pea protein, which doesn’t sound all that appetizing. I mean does anyone actually enjoy peas, or do we all just kind of deal with them? The added cocoa and vanilla are both stronger flavors though, so we don’t have to pretend me like their “country goodness and green pea-ness” as a fictitious Orson Welles once said. It has a great chocolate flavor that makes you forget that you could possibly be hungry. Perhaps I’ll just go on a liquid diet. A wonderfully chocolate liquid diet.

Ginger Shots Kiwi Ginger

Ginger Shots Kiwi Ginger

Holy burn.

I don't know who or what this is for but man this is hot. This is like, "this is going to hurt later" type hot. This is the hot that you are worried about when you eat Buffalo [slash] hot wings and then feel that "thing" in your stomach. I think ginger is supposed to make your stomach feel better so that might not happen. There is kiwi but it's so low in the mix that you can hardly tell it's there. Like a girl that dresses up for a party that like a thousand other people go to that it's just so congested she's wildly underappreciated. It's a little fruity, don't get me wrong, but I can't really tell that it was specifically kiwi.

You know what it is, though? Hot as balls, man. If this was a review for an eBay purchase, I would say "A+. Would drink again."

H2PRO Immune Health Flavorless

H2PRO Immune Health Flavorless

Do I love my guts? I think so. I eat yogurt. That's the epitome of loving and taking care of your guts? I feel like living in Buffalo I do my fair share of loving my guts by eating rotten cheese in the form of bleu cheese. Is that enough? Yogurt and bleu cheese? It's not? I've got to do more?! What kind of time do you think I have? Oh, a packet of stuff I can mix into a bottle of water? Great.

Wait...you said this was flavorless. It tastes the way melting plastic smells. That is quite flavorful, actually. I filled up a sixteen ounce bottle and took three giant chugs to finish it. Now my mouth is cold. It tasted like it was numb when I tasted it. Now it's just strange like I just swished with Stevia. Why would I do that? Swishing with sugar or a sugar-like substitute? Do I hate my teeth? No. I take good care of those puppies like I do, or thought I did, of my guts.

I might be getting stronger or at least more resistant to the outside forces with each sip of this and there are nutritional values like a ton of vitamin C and D but is it worth it? Probably. All that bleu cheese might be clogging my blood vessels and pores.

H2PRO Bone and Joint Health Flavorless

H2PRO Bone and Joint Health Flavorless

Apparently flavorless is code for this tastes the way a dentist office smells; sterile and chalky. It’s all calcium citrate malate, malta dextrin, dimagnesium malate, silica and cholecalsiferal and no fun. At least it serves the purpose of helping with bone and joint health.

Karma Wellness Water Probiotics Apple Cinnamon

Karma Wellness Water Probiotics Apple Cinnamon

Without looking it up on the internet, someone tell me what percentage of American suffer from stomach/digestive issues. I’m not going to look it up but I’ll throw a number out there. I’ll say 72%. That’s a lot of the population with problems, and those are problems that this beverage can help alleviate. This bottle is jam packed with probiotics, which are live bacteria and yeasts of the positive variety that do a bunch to make you feel better.

You grab this and think, “Oh good this is going to make my guts feel better.” Then you realize that it’s an interactive drink and things are even better. You get to peel off the label from the top and then push all of the vitamins, minerals and probiotics that exist in powder form into the water waiting below. Then you shake it like a paint machine mixing up a gallon of paint that you bought to paint your fence, but it just sits there for far too long because you’re procrastinating. Oh, is my real life seeping into this review? That will happen.

So this is fun, it is functional and on top of that it tastes good. I’m wary of apple cinnamon beverages that are not cider, because normally things just do not turn out the way you want them to. Karma has figured it out though. I don’t know if it’s because it stays in a powder form until right before you drink it, but this tastes so much like real cinnamon sprinkled onto dried apples that it’s ridiculous. This is made with stevia as well as cane sugar, and I would have no idea that a zero calorie sweetener was in here if I hadn’t read the label. It’s mostly a light apple water with a heavy cinnamon overtone. It’s great. I could see myself drinking this even if my guts didn’t need the help that 72% of American need.

REBBL Super Herb Elixer Reishi Chocolate

REBBL Super Herb Elixer Reishi Chocolate

This is a beverage that I feel would be sold at some ridiculous restaurant in Brooklyn. You know how they have a place that only serves cereal; this would be served at a chocolate milk bar. This would also be a top shelf item at said establishment. The well drinks would be Nestle and Milo and things of that ilk. As you moved up there would be slightly fancier drinks that were make from almond or soy milk. That top shelf though, that is reserved for only the fanciest of chocolate milks, that that is exactly what this is.

I’m glad I didn’t look up what reishi was before I drank this, because “divine” or not, knowing that this was made with mushrooms would have probably tainted my experience. Not knowing I fully enjoyed it though. The base of this is coconut milk and it’s even sweetened with coconut sugar. Luckily it doesn’t taste toasted, and its flavor sits in the background. The chocolate taste is out of control in here. It’s like someone just melted a high grade chocolate bar into the coconut milk. It’s certainly more chocolate that anything else, and I could ask for nothing more. Also, no matter how much I shook this up it still had little clumps of chocolate in it. That would have kind of grossed me out normally, but when I squished them with my tongue I was reminded that this isn’t some garbage chocolate they were using and all was forgiven.

Those reishi mushrooms may be in here to strengthen the immune system, improve mental clarity and relaxation as well as promote healthy liver function, but you would never know by the taste. It’s just one of the best chocolate “milks” that I have ever tasted and all the benefits are just a bonus on top of the flavor.

Now what would the name of this chocolate milk bar be? Well if they were all vegan and wanted to go with a Lemonheads theme they could call it “Udderless.” That seems a bit niche though, even for a chocolate milk bar in Brooklyn. I’m sure I will think of something better before our imaginary grand opening.
