The taste is crisp and refreshing. Definitely sweet but not too sweet. Has a bit of tartness to it as well. I like that these have much more real food ingredients but still give you that boost you would expect from an energy drink however you don’t get jittery, just focused. Reordering soon. Highly recommend.
I'm pleased with the product, other than I had to disgard 4 cans out of a case due to leakage. Somehow the cans leaked and the cans themselves were bendable while still unopened, meaning air got in. Possibly due to improper packaging, rough postal handling??? I didn't think it was a good idea to drink any of the leaking cans.
Let's face it. There are a lot of so-called "energy" drinks and "calorie-burning" fluids on the market that make multiple promises to their would-be consumers. Most of these drinks claim to increase your energy, sharpen your alertness, and speed up your metabolism in order to help you get through the work day or enhance your work out routine. Most of these drinks also come packed with enough sugar and caffeine to kill a bull.
Celsius has thrown their hat into the energy drink ring with their Raspberry Acai/Green Tea concoction. I find it to be a hit-and-miss combination when compared to the competition.
Much like the other energy drinks out there, it claims to increase your metabolism (over a three hour period in this case) and sustain your energy to keep you alert. Unlike most other energy drinks, it features no sugar, aspartame, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors. It isn't carbonated, either. It's also packed with only ten calories per serving instead of one hundred plus like many other energy drinks.
The taste of the Raspberry Acai Green Tea is very pleasant when compared to other energy drinks, but is a bit bitter. I sort of expect this thanks to the raspberry flavor, but it is still much nicer than other energy drinks in the taste department. I've found that almost all energy drinks (with the exception of Monster's coffee-based drinks) have a medicinal taste to them that doesn't enhance my drinking experience. In other words, I feel like the taste of these drinks is something I have to deal with in order to get the key benefits of each drink. Celsius is actually refreshing, and doesn't make me feel bloated after drinking it.
Celsius doesn't make me jittery like many other energy drinks do. I also don't notice much of a change in my energy levels after drinking Celsius either. While that isn't necessarily a bad thing, I do expect to feel some sort of boost when drinking an energy drink. With Celsius, I don't get that.
As many others have already stated, Celsius claims to burn up to one hundred calories per serving. I have no way of checking this claim out, so I'll just have to take their word for it. The words "up to" give them a lot of breathing room, so that does make me wonder just how many calories the average person will actually burn by drinking this beverage.
Celsius has a very good product on their hands with their Raspberry Acai Green Tea. It beats the competition in taste, ingredients (good and bad), and as a refreshing drink. It appears to be lacking, however, in the energy-boosting department.
Overall, if you are already using some sort of physical exercise to keep yourself in shape, I see no problem with adding Celsius to that routine as a decent replacement for other energy drinks. If you're just thirsty after cutting the lawn, Celsius has the rest of the gang beaten hands down.
Here it is, simply said. This is one drink with a lot of caffeine.....200 mg of caffeine. The drink is supposed to burn off 100 calories per fan, however whether it does not does not, it's not a whole lot. I found it easy to drink down as it's non-carbonated so you don't end up with a huge burp after chugging it down. I did not find it to have an over sweet taste.
Now as some others posted here on if it's good for you. Well in reality, no it's probably not good for you. It's not a pure nutrient drink. It's caffeine with a marketing added benefit of burning some calories. But keep in mind most of what we eat and drink is not good for you. Especially stuff with caffeine. Drink a few cans of this and expect a crash and or some shaking or your heart beating fast (palpitations).
However if you don't like coffee, want a change or whatever if you drink this in the morning or need to be awake then a can or so of this (depending on how much caffeine you can handle) will keep you going fine. Abuse it (as with anything) and it's not good.
Well, it's not magic thin juice. It specifically says, on the packaging, that just drinking Celsius will not cause weight loss. It only works when you combine it with diet and/or exercise. It says it helps you burn 100 calories per can...that's not really a whole lot. The
3 Musketeers Candy Bar
s I shouldn't be eating have 270.
I decided to substitute these for my morning latte. They have enough caffeine in them to give me my morning boost, but that's about it. Over the two week period, I didn't notice any great increase in energy, and it certainly didn't improve my metabolism enough to see any weight loss. The taste is acceptable, it's actually better than I thought it would be. I do find that I have trouble finishing the can before it gets warm, but I've always been a slow drinker.
I may try using these as a mixer for adult beverages; it would save me at least 100 calories a drink if I stopped using apple pucker and sweet and sour...
