Review: Allday Energy Shot

Review: Allday Energy Shot

All day I’ve felt barely awake… so an “energy shot” was probably in order to feel awake enough to make it through the evening.

Allday Energy (their spelling) relies on L-Carnitine, L-Arginine, and D-Ribose — three things I’ve never heard of — to pump you up. Presumably lots of caffeine, too.

Naturally, that comes at a price. While the company claims it is delicious, Allday Energy is really quite awful, like cough syrup mixed with Kool-Aid… a difficult combination to stomach. I got it down eventually and, I’m happy to report, I finally woke up… but that might also have been thanks to the three pieces of pizza I sucked down. (And yet, I can still taste the Allday Energy, several hours later.)

Based on this limited testing, I can’t tell you if Allday Energy is any better at waking you up than other energy shots… but I can assure you it is one of the less delicious shots out there.

B- / $3 per 2 oz. shot

    i can attest to your observations…
    i have on many occasions resorted to these sorts of things and tho i gree that this is no yummy- i like the fact that is small, so you oly have to drink a little (instead of a whole sugary can of nasty- you get a small burst or artificially sugary nasty…)
    i wishthey would just make an “Un-flavored” version i could deal with the bitter WAaAaAAYyYY easier! Also for future experience some lemon help kill the aftertaste..

    Just take a caffeine pill – it’s the only ingredient in there that actually does anything. And it won’t leave a bad taste in your mouth for hours.

    The box/bottle is designed to look like 5 hour energy which works very well and doesnt have that much caffeine in it
