Gazzu is a strange product. I really think the people who made this were trippin out on something. Hard. Why do I say this? Check out what they have as their product description on the back our the can:
This Gazzu is something really different. They tell me that it’s a guarded secret formula used to make it, and the word it it’s not from Earth. I know this guy, who is connected, and he told me the secret ingredient is like moon dust! They figured out how to grow it in these labs, like crystals. Man, this stuff is crazy, it tastes better than any energy drink I’ve ever had.
Awesome energy and taste that’s like ….. cosmic. It’s Gazzu!! Hey, gimme a G.
Moon dust? Really? Hmm.
Gazzu’s can makes it look like the people behind this cosmic supplement were going for a very Monster feel, maybe even trying to confuse consumers. There’ve been times when, honest to God, I’ve gone for a Monster at my local gas station and walked up to the counter with this stuff. Maybe that’s just me, but if it was done on purpose it’s an effective marketing strategy.
Gazzu has a very generic scent to it, like most other smaller or less known drinks. I don’t want to call them generic, but I guess many could consider them so. Anyway, the drink has a very basic, sweet smell that seems sorta like a mix between bubble gum and marshmallows. Not really all that appetizing, honestly.
Going hand-in-hand with my theory that Gazzu was “heavily inspired” by Monster is the taste. But it’s not good. It seems like they tried to go for something that tasted at least remotely similar to the green gold that constantly tops the energy drink sales charts, but they’ve failed. Miserably. All you can taste when you drink it is cough syrup with sugar, sugar, sugar, a little sugar, sugar, and more sugar. It’s really no where near the bar set by the other drinks of today, even those “generic” and lesser known beverages.
On top of all that, Gazzu leaves this horrible gritty feeling on your teeth and a thick covering of Moon Dust (?) in your mouth that leaves you thirsty and wanting something better to drink.
So far I haven’t really had anything too good to say about Gazzu, and that doesn’t change with the kick. This supplement delivers the worst kind of buzz you can get from an energy supplement, the tingly and shaky punch that leaves you unable to concentrate and perform, not like Cocaine or Full Throttle which deliver satisfying kicks that’ll keep you going for hours.
The drink comes in the standard 2 serving, 16 fl oz can for a lower price than the big boys like Rockstar or Bawls. How much cheaper? About 20 cents, nothing spectacular, but you’re saving some coin none the less. Still, I can’t recommend Gazzu to anyone unless you really just want to try it. Everything about it is mediocre, and $1.79 is too expensive for this supplement, eve if it does come from outer space or whatever.
I usually like to root for the lesser knowns, but I can’t do it for Gazzu. They didn’t master a formula that delivers a tasty scent, delicious flavor, or satisfying kick. They just kinda threw one together. You really want a G? You can have it.
- Cheaper than some others
- Product description delivers a cheap laugh, but for the wrong reasons.
