Harcos is not only a major player in the energy product market, they are also one of the most innovative companies in the field. They are the makers of such crazy things as Mana Energy Potions, Zombie Blood, and a few other very unique items. Today I will be taking on one of the flavors of the Nuclear Energy lineup, yellow cake.
The Look: The Nuclear Energy Powder comes in a cool plastic vial/tube. Each flavor is assigned some type of nuclear element, this one is Uranium. The packaging is very simple but yet it contains everything you really need to know. There is a nuclear waste symbol on the front along with the flavor and they even mention the amount of caffeine on the package. For such a simple packaging, the theme works very well.

Taste: Every other type of energy powder I have had so far has had a sour taste to cover up the caffeine, Harcos used a truly original flavor on this one. The flavor of this taste almost exactly like yellow cake batter. This might be one of the most unique tasting energy products I have had the pleasure of trying so far. After the wonderful cake flavor there is a very slight caffeine taste. This is something you need to try for yourself just to see how awesome it is.

Does It Work: Two things power Nuclear Energy Powder: sugar and caffeine. There are 8 grams of sugar inside each tube and a nice 90 mg dose of caffeine. I got a surprising kick from these every time I have tried one. The caffeine hits you almost instantly and I got a good 2 hour kick from each one with no crash. The only downside to these is you don't get the taurine, B vitamins, or the other goodies that are in most energy products.

Overall Thoughts: So far I have yet to try a bad product from Harcos Labs. Each time I hear the company is coming out with a new product I get very excited to see what crazy item they come up with next. I can say without a doubt this is one of the most original flavors I have ever had in a product. You can buy some for yourself online at Harcos Labs where you can also check out all of their other zany items. I have also ran across these at Hot Topics and Hastings. You really need to try these out so you can experience the awesome flavor.
