Caffiend: Unbound Energy
There aren't many negative things we can say about Unbound Energy. It's cheap (around two bucks a can), tastes good, and provides a nice energy boost. For years, we've been waiting for an energy drink that we liked as much as Monster -- and we may have finally found it in Unbound Energy.
The energy blend in Unbound Energy is pretty potent: 1000 mg of glucose, caffeine, inositol, glucuronolactone, and maltodextrin (in simpler terms, a crap load of sugar). Other ingredients include 20 mg of niacin and 4.8 mcg of Vitamin B12. Strangely, while Unbound Energy has less caffeine and more sugar than most energy drinks, we didn't experience any kind of sugar crash. We were hopped up for about an hour, and then gradually found ourselves getting back to normal midday pace.
