Energy is what we need to get by day to day and prevent boredom and lack of energy. Usually, people will rely on coffee for energy because of caffeine. However, some people rely on energy drinks to provide energy for your body and mind. When you go to places like 7-Eleven, Safeway, or any other places that contain snacks and drinks, you will be most likely to encounter energy drink products on the shelf.
I have tried different energy drink brands like Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar, NOS, Bang energy, and Monster Reign. Most of them are somewhat positive about its effect on energy. But then I stumble upon this one brand that is not well-known that caught my attention: Raze Energy. I decided to give it a try and give it a review to see if it exceeds my expectation.
What is Raze Energy?
Raze Energy drink is a type of energy drink target for pre-workout fuel. But this can also be used for energy in your daily lifestyle activities. Raze Energy is part of a company called REPP Sports. It may sound like that this energy drink is like other popular energy drink brands. According to REPP Sports, Raze Energy strives for high quality when it comes to energy drinks. But let’s look at some features and details about this drink and how it compares and contrast to other competing energy drink brand.
There are several different features about Raze energy drink that separates them from other brands like Monster, Red Bull, or Bang energy.
According to medical news today concerning electrolytes, they help to regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood acidity and pressure and help rebuild damaged tissue. The body needs to receive calcium, sodium, and potassium to help with muscle contraction and other electrolytes like chloride and magnesium are needed to help restore or replenish electrolytes during and after exercise.
This is an essential amino acid-like leucine, isoleucine, and valine that helps to fuel skeletal muscles during training and help to power through the workout. BCAA preserve glycogen stores to fuel your muscle for energy production. They will improve muscle protein recovery after exercise to regulate muscle protein synthesis. BCAA can be used before, during, and after exercise. They are considered one of the best supplements to build muscles and boost muscle gains.

Flavor review (on the scale 1-10)
Galaxy Burst: 8
This is the first flavor I’ve drunk from Raze Energy. My first impression of this flavor is having many starbursts filling my mouth. The specific flavor is hard to tell but the closest one I can come up with is a mixed variety of sweet taffy candy flavors. The taste is sweet and good if you are a fan of starburst or taffy candy in general.
Baja Lime: 10
This is another flavor that is considered an all-time favorite by many. The other Baja lime that I tried was Mountain Dew Baja Blast. I love Baja Blast from Mountain Dew because of the lime taste. Does this flavored drink taste as good as Mountain Dew Baja Blast? The answer is YES. When I first taste it, I can taste different flavors other than lime. I started to taste pineapple and coconut mixed in with lime. The design of the can show the images of lime, pineapple, and coconut, which reveals the flavor of Baja lime. The can design looks great and the taste is amazing. Definite favorite.
Sour Gummy Worms: 10
Before I even tried this flavor, I heard that this flavor is one of the favorites of the company. So, I tried it out to see if it is true. I’m glad to say that it is true. This flavor tastes amazing. The sour gummy worm is one of the best flavors that Raze Energy came up with. It has a sweet taste with the combination of sour gummy worm taste. This is an instant favorite from the first taste. The design is great because green is my favorite color. I enjoyed it every time I took a sip of this flavored drink. Based on the design of the can and the taste, this is the top 5 best flavor of Raze Energy. It may be the top 3.
Strawberry Colada: 8.5
I like the taste. I taste the strawberry flavor. When it mentioned colada as part of it, it made me think of pina colada. This taste is pina colada substituting pina with strawberry. This drink is for all those who love strawberry flavored drinks.
Grape Bubblegum: 8.5
The taste reminds me of Fanta Grape or Crush grape soda flavor with no sugar and carbs. I like the flavor. I describe it as a sweet grape flavor without the bad aftertaste. It’s funny that it mentions bubblegum as part of the flavor, but I rarely taste it because I taste more grape than bubblegum mixed in with grape. But you can decide if the aftertaste of this flavor or any other flavor listed here appeals to you or not.
Watermelon Frost: 9.5
This is the top 5 best flavor of Raze Energy I’ve ever drunk in my personal opinion. I love watermelon flavored candy and juice. Watermelon is one of my favorite fruit. It has a sweet and juicy watermelon flavor that appeals to my taste buds so much. Watermelon has a great flavor when added to candy or drinks. This flavored drink was an immediate favorite from the first taste. For all of you, watermelon freaks out here. Get this flavored drink. You will love it.
Guava Mango: 7
The taste was okay in my opinion. It has more of a mango flavor with mixes of guava. Even though I like mango and guava flavors, this did not impress me much. There is sweetness in it, but the flavor does not pack a punch, honestly. This is my least favorite flavor. As a result, this flavor is not the top 5 best flavor.
The taste of this flavor is orange with zero sugar, zero calories, and zero carbs. In general, it is Fanta Orange or Crush Orange without the usual ingredients like high fructose corn syrup. I like the taste because I love orange flavor drinks with a sweet tangy taste to it. This is a good flavor from Raze Energy and becomes an immediate favorite. I consider this top 5 flavor from Raze Energy drink.
Does it work?
I think the big problem with an energy drink is that some people don’t feel the effects. But you must physically move to feel the effects of the energy drink. The drink instructed that I must wait 20-30min before working out or doing anything physical. After I finished drinking my first can of Raze Energy, I did feel the energy and felt no crash for 6 hours. I experienced the first yawn after 6 hours of energy. Conversely, other energy drinks will give me between 1-2 hours of energy and then feeling crash afterward.
What about exercise?
While it proves that Raze Energy can work for energy for life, how about exercise? Well, based on consuming the second can of Raze Energy, I can answer that. I drank the second can of Raze Energy and waited for 20-30min before exercising. The workout that I did was Rachael DeVaux’s 45 min upper body and core sculpt workout and throughout the workout, I did not feel any signs of the crash during the workout. I was able to finish the workout without tiring myself out quickly. This proves that Raze Energy does work and is effective with an energy boost.
