Firestar Shotz Ice Mint Review

Last but not least I tried Firestar's Ice Mint from their Shotz line. The difference between the Shotz and the Max line is the caffeine content. Max has twice the amount.

The taste was identical to the Max Ice Mint taste. It was intense and minty at the start and a bit more mellow once it went down. I don't think I can tell the difference between the Max and Shotz which means that Firestar was able to cram twice the caffeine in the Max Ice Mint without ruining the taste. Great job!


The initial kick came in quickly just from the intense mint taste, followed by a tiny jolt from the small amount of sugar. The caffeine kicked in a bit later and the rush was clean without any jitters.

The main difference between the Shotz Ice Mint and Max Ice Mint is the duration of the boost. As expected this one did not last as much as the Max Ice Mint, but it did give me a nice boost for about an hour and a half without the crash. Overall, not bad, but I would much rather go for the Max Ice Mint.

Cost - unknown
Taste - 9.5/10
Energy - 6.2/10

Overall - 15.7/20...minty, tasty, but not as powerful as the Max line
