SuperFly Energy Drink Tabs Citrus Kick Review

This is exactly what it looks like - an effervescent tablet with caffeine. There are 6 tablets in each of these tubes and a single tube will cost you $4 from the


The tube tells me to drop a tab in a glass filled with 8 to 16 oz of water or any other amount of water depending on how I want the drink to taste. Well, from previous experience with energy tabs, I decided to go with the 8 oz glass of water first because even if I mess it up, I still have 5 other tabs I can experiment with.

The tab dissolved in about 2 minutes in the 8 ounces of water and produced a drink with a caramel color and an aroma similar to many of the mainstream energy drinks. The resulting mixture is lightly carbonated and tastes just like a can of Red Bull/Red Rain/Red Fire and other imitators. Awesome! I love the taste of Red Bull and paying $4 to make 6 glasses of essentially is 6 cans of Red Bull is fantastic. The next thing I will try is using more water to see if I can stretch those 8 ounces and great taste into 10, 12, 14 or even 16 ounces of a Red Bull clone.


Like many other tabs, the caffeine content is given as part of the proprietary energy blend, which is 163.5 mg in total. I think that a fair bit of this is caffeine since I started to wake up and experience some positive effects within 10-15 minutes time. Within another 30 minutes I was feeling completely energized and ready to do anything. I did experience a mild case of the jitters, but at least it didn't last too long. I got almost 2 hours out of the single tablet before I had to reach for a strong cup of tea. Not bad for $4.
