Hi all my wonderful readers. I hope you’re all having a brilliant day.
A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Schenkters Organic Energy Drinks, and asked I ifI would like to review their range of drinks. After doing a little bit of research, I agreed.
Schenkters Organic Energy Drink was created in 2010 by Toby Schenkter, a former racing driver, and son of formula one ledgend Jody Schenkter.
For Toby, years spent working on the family’s renown organic farm, Lavistoke Park, clearly sowed the seed to create the worlds first organic, vegetarian, and fairtrade certified energy drink.
Schenkters Organic Energy Drink, was initially launched in the UK, and is now available in the USA, South Africa, the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Finland, Russia, and there’s even more to come.
When starting out, Schenkters wanted to create a 100% natural, organic energy drink, that tastes great, and gives you a sustained mental and physical energy boost.
To do this they sourced the highest quality organic ingredients, and they never use any artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives.
Schenkters Organic Energy, both the original and light variants contain 80mg of caffeine.
Schenkters Organic Energy original contains raw cane sugar and green tea traded to fairtraide standards.
Schenkters light, offers the same benefits of the original, but contains agave nectar , so that means it has 30% less calories than the original.
The flavour of Schenkters Organic Energy Drink comes from a mix of sicillian lemon juice, eastern Mediterranean pomegranate juice, and organic elderberry juice. The lemon juice acts as a natural preservative, but because it can make the drink a little tart, Schenkters add a little raw cane sugar in the original variety and a little agave nectar in the light version to create a pleasant taste.
To provide a sustained energy boost without you crashing, they use a blend of raw green coffee beans, brazilian guarana, green tea, and ginseng.
I received a can of each variety, both the original, and the light version.
The can looks like your generic energy drink can. It’s tall and thin, it’s a normal can, what can I tell you about a generic can. The ring pull that you use to open it was very tough, which was good as I hate it when you open a drinks can and the ring pull instantly falls off.
The taste was actually quite nice. I was expecting it to taste extremely syrupy, but it just tasted like a can of really high quality berryade. I couldn’t really taste the lemon. It just tasted of berries. Like a mix of strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries.
The original wasn’t at all sweet. I hate energy drinks that taste like you’re drinking pure sugar. It was sweet, but at the same time sour.
There wasn’t that much of a difference in taste between the original and the light. The only major difference was a slight sweetness difference. It’s not something you notice unless you’re looking for it.
After drinking these, I did notice my energy levels had increased. I mean I wasn’t going to be running a marathon, but I was able to get a lot more work done, rather than if I hadn’t drunken them.
Overall, I would have to rate them an eight out of ten. I really liked them, and would definitely purchase them again. I love the fact that they’re a lot healthier and cleaner than say a Red Bull, that’s probably filled with so much crap that it isn’t good for you.
If you would like to purchase them for yourself, you can find them at most food stockists including, ASDA, Waitrose, Sainsburys, Holland and Barratt, and many other places.
It’s a wonderful drink, and if I drank energy drinks on a regular basis, then I would purchase these again.
I would just like to thank Schenkter for sending me their fantastic product, and I highly recommend you check them out.
