But I wouldn't have it any other way
Go Fast Coconut
Go Fast is one interesting company. They bill themselves as “The Athletes Energy Drink” in my interview with the company a while back I found out they are very serious about their sports. They also really put a lot of thought into the quality and health aspect of their drinks. They have these new “Hybrid” drinks that even healthier than their original line. Let’s check out their Coconut version first.
Packaging: So they use a proprietary printing technology to get a very realistic image of a coconut on their can. Wow it is super sharp and really pops out at you. I have not seen an image this nice on a can. Add to that the big Go Fast logo and a listing of key ingredients and benefits and you have a really sharp package. Grade A-
Slogan: “Stronger For longer” is on their can and it works well. It rhymes and that makes it fun to say and easy to remember. Grade B
Taste: So popping the top I get a nice light coconut scent. I pour some in a glass and it comes out a dark brown liquid with a light carbonation. I take a sip and initially get the original Go fast energy drink flavor very quickly fades into a really natural coconut flavor. This is not a fake sweet coconut at all it is like a real coconut. It also has some hints of honey and almond. There is no bitterness or aftertaste. It is just mildly sweet and taste like it is good for you. I also have to say it makes a hell of a mixer with a little rum. Grade A- for taste
Kick/ingredients. So I drank down the can pretty quickly and it really got me going. I had a great buzz that was intense and on the edge but did not veer into jittery territory. I felt refreshed and active and really had to get up and do stuff. I had a solid buzz that tapered off after about four hours with no real crash. Stronger than I expected. Each can contains 162 mg caffeine, 2000 mg Taurine, 500 mg Ginseng, 150 mg Guarana, 150 mg Ginko Biloba, 50 mg Inositol, 100 mg Milk Thistle, 182 mg Ribose, and some B vitamins in the 100% dv range. But wait there is more you have some potassium, magnesium, and sodium for hydration. It is sweetened with Stevia, and sugar and also has coconut water concentrate and honey in it. There are 100 calories, 26 grams of carbs, and 24 grams of sugars. Pretty healthy and natural line up. Much better for you than the typical HFC sweetened energy drink. Grade A- for kick/ingredients
Web presence: The site at gofastsports.com is pretty sharp they have product info, videos and photos, and about us section, a store, and events (extreme sports anyone?). They also have website for different countries and I don’t mean just a translation but actual different sites for different countries. They also have a Facebook and a Twitter and both are up to date! Grade A- for web presence
Wow this drink really impressed me. This is a great drink for sports with its low calories, healthy ingredients, hydration, and big smooth energy boost. It looks great and taste great. Of course you don’t have to be an athlete to try it. It is smooth enough to drink at work or home as well. Then to top it off it make a hell of a mixer. I am impressed with the though and care put into this drink. The only regret I have is that they only sent me 2 cans and I consumed those already and can’t find this drink locally. If you can find these I say grab you a bunch you will be happy on so many fronts. Make sure to let me know what you think after you try it.
