[Energy Drink Review] Vuka: Workout (Berry Lemonade)

Workout is the last flavor of the Vuka family of functional energy drinks. All of the other flavors — Awaken, Think and Renew — have been granted scores of 8.0, 8.1, and 9.0, respectively, here on Everyview. Workout was the one I wanted to hold off on until I got a gym membership so that I could effectively test it out.

Well, I got that membership and I finally put Vuka’s Workout formula to the test. I walked in to my gym, Nintendo themed messenger bag thrown over my shoulder, a pair of Reebok Reezigs on my feet, a can of Vuka: Workout in my hands, and a burning desire to get swole (whatever the hell that means).

[Energy Drink Review] Vuka: Renew (Mango Peach)

I hate my job. I work as a bagger/cashier at my local Kroger grocery store. I’ve been there for three long years. I make $7.55/hr. Some of my responsibilities include bagging groceries, scanning groceries, mopping floors, sweeping the sidewalk, emptying ash trays, and cleaning human fecal matter out of a sink. I shit you not (get it?), that has happened to me before.

Needless to say, when I get home from work I am tired. Wiped out. Completely drained. I am 20-years-old and I often take naps in the middle of the day or early in the evening for God’s sake. This shouldn’t be happening! Luckily for me, the folks at Vuka have a drink just for people in my situation. Vuka Renew claims to be able to restore focus and vitality after you’ve seemingly run out of gas.

Here goes nothing, I sure hope it works. Continue reading

[Energy Drink Review] Vuka: Think (Pomegranate Lychee)

Vuka has already impressed me once with their Awaken formula, a delicious and refreshing orange drinking that does its job wonderfully. Now I’m coming back to the Vuka brand a second time to try their Think flavor. Specially formulated to “replenish mental alertness during the marathon of a busy day,” Vuka Think is flavored with Pomegranate and Lychee to give the beverage unique flavor and improve memory and concentration.

So here I am, 2:30 AM, stack of books cluttering my desk, a flood of papers and Flash Drives on the floor, and the beginnings of a five page Sociology paper sitting stagnant in Microsoft Word. I have repeatedly tried to pick a topic, which has to be done in order to write a thesis, which will open me up to all kinds of awards from my community college’s… well. Man, I’m a failure.

Time to put Vuka’s Think flavor to the ultimate test and see if it can really do what it claims it is capable of.

[Energy Drink Review] Vuka: Awaken (Orange)

It is hard to find a properly balanced morning energy drink. Something that will get you going but won’t leave you in need of another boost four hours later. Drinks like Awake: Good Morning Energy immediately come to mind, but such beverages are few and far between.

Luckily for you early morning caffeine addicts, the good folks at Vuka: Intelligent Energy have got your backs. Their line of functional energy drinks feature formulas to help the everyman get through every part of his day, and the hazy morning commute to the job you hate so much is no different. Vuka: Awaken is meant to be a healthy, tasty wake up for people who crave a refreshing energy drink to start their day without worrying about crashing before lunch time.
