Or 5 hours in this case. Well at least that is what it claims on the tiny bottle. What really does amaze me about this product is just how the manufacturers managed to make it taste so bad. There may only be 58ml of it (zero sugar and only 4 calories) but it feels like you are drinking a gallon of something unmentionable. This wouldn't be so bad if it actually had any noticeable effect upon me but it didn't. Well apart from some momentary gagging. Usually when something tastes awful (like bronchial cough medicine) it has a positive impact but this just tastes bad and that's about it. Allegedly it is jam packed with amino acids and B - vitamins. My multi vitamins also have these things and they come in non offensive tasting tablet form. This rancid drink doesn't appear to contain anything which provides energy and alertness such as caffeine or anything similar. On the plus side I did score this as a freebie at work and the rest of the guys shared my suffering and were all suitably unimpressed. Think I would rather eat handful of instant coffee granules. At least they would work.
Five hour energy is made to give you energy, right? I had bought a pack of pomegranate flavored energy bottles and believe me they give you energy! They give you energy for half a second before you run toward the restroom to relieve yourself of that acid. Honestly, I have asked school-mates, parents, teachers, and a compilation of people to tell me how five hour energy works for them. The results? About 80% of people say that the five hour energy that they had used matches my experience, puking out the vile mix or becoming more tired. The taste is retched. It doesn't even taste like the title says. Pomegranate, psssshh. More like rotten milk, BLEH! I take it that five hour energy may work for some people, but in my case it rarely works. I guess it was meant for, that when you taste the drink it jump starts your day from the uplift in your face and the disgusting taste make you feel like you are popping you head up on the ceiling. My advice to you five hour energy producers, make it taste better and add some kick into it. It's supposed to give you energy not make you feel like you have stomach problems. Jeez!
