EASE IN ACQUISITION—4
Arizona drinks are, for all intents and purposes, ubiquitous—which makes the fact that I’ve only seen these drinks at Dollar Tree seem strange. See if you can find it there; I’ll be interested in seeing if the drink is typical of every Dollar Tree store or if it’s just carried at the one near to where I live.
AZ Energy Low Carb looks like the negative of a photo of the original—white and gold crackle in the background, black ice in the lower foreground, and a blinged-out AZ logo up front. Nice to look upon, but the complaint expounded upon in my review of the original applies—the light blue of the low carb version and the green of the original are too reminiscent of Monster’s style to not put across the erroneous impression that these are Monster clones, which are as common as anything else on the market and are becoming increasingly tiresome to drink.
There’s really nothing to say here that I didn’t say in my review of the original. The low-carb version has the same strange flavor (guarana up front, followed up by complex fruit blend), and the same unique nature that makes this a ‘love it or hate it’ sort of drink.
Blessedly, you can count on as serious a kick as delivered by the original—minus, perhaps, some degree of jitters due to the lack of sugar. Regardless, it’s got enough of a jolt to really wake you up and get you going for just about any energy-requiring situation.
Four hours of consistent energy, no crash.
THE DRINK OVERALL—8.33
AZ Energy Low Carb is, for all intents and purposes, indistinguishable from the original AZ Energy—and it naturally follows that the same council I gave in that review applies here. I’m going to offer no quality judgment on the flavor so as to encourage readers to try it out and decide for themselves—but I will say that the impressive kick alone makes it worth that one shot, even if it turns out they really don’t like it. Happy drinking!
