EASE IN ACQUISITION—8
Pretty easy to find if you’re in the habit of frequenting the bodybuilding section of larger chains. Look for it next to the protein shakes.
Six Star Protein Energy Shot owes much of its appeal to a clean and bold presentation—the are no sunbursts, no grungy fonts, no outlandish claims of eight weeks of energy or anything of the sort. It’s concise and to the point, and for that earns a consumer’s consideration.
It’s not so much the flavor that kills this shot; indeed, it’s actually better berrywise than the multitudes of 5 Hour Energy clones that inundate the shelves. The fatal blow is delivered by the texture—which I should have anticipated, given the 26 grams of hydrolyzed proteins and brief chain amino acids. If you’ve ever wanted to experience something along the lines of imbibing 2.5 ounces of semi-sweet, creamy, yogurty muck…well, now you have your chance to find out.
At 125 mg, this is far from the most formidable energy product I’ve ever reviewed. All the same, I think its modest boost is sufficient if you’re looking for a little extra help aside from the protein.
Four hours, no crash—so not shabby.
THE SHOT OVERALL—6.33
I think if I’m needing a protein/energy boost, I’ll stick with my usual filets of fish and a Rockstar Zero Carb (feast of champions), but if you’re into convenience and aren’t terribly particular about the taste, this will get the job done.
