But this stuff... this stuff is unique. First of all, while the bottle is pretty, it is the nastiest, most disgusting taste I have ever had the misfortune to let near my mouth. I instantly regretted the cough syrup like drink. Thick, dank, and putrid it slid down my throat and settled in my stomach like a stone lump.
And there it sat, oozing and slithering, until it finally hit my system.
I felt like I had gone from zero to sixty in less than a second. No, there was no gradual build up of energy, there was nothing, and then there was everything! I was twitching, insane almost, desperate to do anything and everything at once. Raid MC, knit a pair of socks, learn three foreign languages at the same time, watch all of Firefly, chat with friends, write a letter to dear grandmama, study calculus, program my own dungeon, and then I crashed.
It was like hitting a brick wall while rolling down a hill in a garbage can. There was too much energy, and then none at all. Uncontrolled explosions in my system followed by an oxygen vent to finally put them out, and the crew dying a fast and miserable death.
If you think the concept of the Mana potion is cool, then buy one. It is pretty, and it is a cool thing to look at. But be warned, this stuff is the closest thing to weaponized caffeine I have ever experienced in my life. From now on I'm sticking to Bawls, and staying away from little bottles that all but scream 'drink me'.
Visual: Small but very attractive packaging. Pretty much exactly what you might think a mana potion would look like in real life. Smaller than expected--but then it more easily explains how your character in World of Warcraft, or 'toon, could carry 40 in one backpack.
Taste: Also explains why your 'toon refuses to drink another one for several minutes, even if it means dying. Dying is preferable as long as you still have the aftertaste. Think cough syrup, only without the benefit of alcohol or drugs. Very glad it came in 50ml bottles--one good sized swig and it's gone. After a short period of time, however, one starts to think it wasn't that bad. An appropriate support group could probably help with that mild problem.
Effects: Works as advertised. Taken at approximately 17 hours of wakefullness after less than 5 hours of sleep the night prior, allowed me to stay awake for an additional 5 hours while still being able to focus and perform. Able to fall asleep when desired. Awoke the next morning feeling fine with no adverse effects.
Active ingredients: Per their website, contains 25 calories per serving, includes Vitamin C (10% RDA), B1 (80% RDA), B3 (130% RDA), B5 (80% RDA), B6 (1600% RDA), B12 (6667% RDA--no, not a typo) as well as caffeine and enzymes. Caffeine content roughly equivalent to two Red Bulls or four cups of coffee.
Bottom line: Works well, but I would not recommend for children based upon the caffeine and very large dose of B12.
On the other hand, the taste....it's over a day ago that I drank the darned thing and I STILL taste it. Argh! Bad bad bad! Drink one if you're a masochist just so you say you did, but you're better off looking at it and drinking something that tastes better....and I'm including tree toad urine in that category. Yes, we have a contender for bad taste of the millennium here. It's so bad that it brought tears to my eyes....not tart tears but tears as in "good god, what did I just drink?"
summation: keep it as a shelf nick knack or drain it and put something else in the bottle.
