Spider Energy

Today I will be taking on the sugar version of Spider Energy.  I was left very impressed with the brand when I reviewed Lighter Spider, so I am hoping I have the same great experience this time. 

The Look:  The can design is the same as Lighter Spider for the most part.  Spider Energy has a different color scheme, they used orange this time instead of yellow.  Also the slogan on the top of the can is slightly different: "Get Bit, Stay Lit".  That is how you do a slogan, it is specific to the drink and it just all out kicks ass.  On the back there is a nice passage about the company and the usual nutritional information.  Great can that other companies should take notes on. (Nice graphic, great slogan, good color scheme, and the caffeine is listed)
(9.5 out of 10)

Taste:  Spider Energy has a great orange soda type of taste.  If you mixed orange soda with a little added citrus you would get Spider Energy.  There is no caffeine taste present and no aftertaste.  Another great energy drink that blurs the taste line between soda and energy drink.
(8.5 out of 10)

Does It Work:  Spider Energy comes at you with 220 calories, 54 g of sugar, a big handful of B vitamins, 240 mg of caffeine (I bolded that for a reason, that is very nice), taurine, ginseng, guarana, and a good number of other ingredients.  This did more than just woke me up, this jump started me this morning.  After drinking down the can I had a great buzz that lasted well into the afternoon with no crash.
(9 out of 10)

Overall Thoughts: I cannot think of anything bad to say about the Spider Energy drinks.  The look is great, the slogan fits perfectly, the taste is wonderful, and the kick is above average.  You can check them out on the web at: Spider Energy.  Both of the drinks in the Spider lineup get my recommendation.  A big thanks goes out to my friend at EDJunkie.com for helping me discovering such a great product.

Caffeine, I am always surprised at all the energy stuff out there. Just when I think there cannot possibly be anymore out there, you find something else.

Amazing.
