The first thing you notice about a product before you ever try it is the packaging. So I figure my first award will be for best packaging. If a product has a kick ass packaging, I think it really helps it to stand out in the overcrowded energy market. In the end there was one product that caught my eye the moment I saw it. Which is why I award the best packaging of 2010 to Zombie Blood.
Moving along. The second award I will be presenting belongs to the most unique product. Caffeine is becoming available in all kinds different forms. I have reviewed caffeinated mints, caffeinated snuff, caffeinated beef jerky, and many other crazy items. The one product that just really amazed me, not only had a great concept but it also had perfect execution. The award for Most Unique Product of 2010 goes to BioFuel Caffeinated Popcorn.
When energy drinks first came out, good taste was not associated with them. Since then many companies have figured out how to make energy drinks taste so good you want to drink it just for the taste. This was another tough category to pick a winner but in the end I was able to decide on one. The winner for 2010 Best Tasting Energy Drink goes to Crunk Mango Peach.
Energy drinks might be everywhere but energy shots are also sold in most places. In 2010 I got to try many energy shots and was impressed by most. The award for the 2010 Best Energy Shot goes to Bazi.
The final award goes to the company that managed to make a drink that did great in all categories. They had to have a great packaging, a fantastic taste, and they had to work. After deciding between a few companies, I decided to award the 2010 Best Overall award to Crunk Energy Drink. They have the look, the taste, a great slogan, and they work.
I want to congratulate every company that won. It wasn't easy on some of the choices but these are the products I truly believe to be the best in certain areas. If you agree or even if you disagree let me know your thoughts below.
