There is something my son and I do not agree on. Not at all. Energy drinks. He likes certain ones. You an probably guess which ones. I hear the stories in the news about certain ingredients and I worry. He drinks them anyway, because you know, he’s 18 and knows everything. He says they give him a boost to help keep him going when he’s lagging or needs a pick-me up. Best as I can tell, most energy drinks do give you an energy boost, but they also give you a sugar crash. The folks at Marquis O3 also recognized both of these things, and as a result introduced Marquis O3 Vitality Energy Drinks.
Marquis O3 is an organic, all-natural energy drink. The O3 in the name represents 0 Calories + 0 Sugar + Certified USDA Organic. This line of drinks was designed for those consumers that want to avoid artificial ingredients and chemicals. Unlike other energy drinks available today, Marquis O3 does not contain Taurine, artificial ingredients or preservatives. Marquis O3 contains 9 all-natural ingredients including Stevia, Yerba Mate, Green Tea, Vitamin B Complex, and Vitamin C.The only ingredient I didn’t know about off the top of my head was erythritol. (Sssh, don’t tell my science professor.) According to Wiki, erythritol is a sugar alcohol that occurs naturally in some fruits and fermented foods. It is 60–70% as sweet as table sugar yet it is almost noncaloric, does not affect blood sugar, does not cause tooth decay, and is partially absorbed by the body, excreted in urine and feces. It is less likely to cause gastric side effects than other sugar alcohols because of its unique digestion pathway. Marquis O3 is Non-GMO, Gluten-free, Vegan, and made in the USA.
Marquis O3 Vitality Energy Drinks come in three varieties – Super Berry, Mango Ginger, and Citrus. We received samples of each. By far the overall leader in the taste contest was the citrus. It’s sort of like a Sierra Mist or a Fresca that’s going a little flat so it only has a little fizz. The next was the Super Berry. Truthfully, we all thought this tasted like a weak grape soda. Which left the Mango Ginger. We had a lot of people try it, from me and my family to the football coach and some of the football team. Noone cared for the Mango Ginger at all. We thought the taste of the Marquis O3 Vitality Energy Drinks were more of what we would call an acquired taste, in that they just don’t taste anything like other energy drinks on the market.
Marquis O3 Vitality Energy Drinks are available in select locations mainly on the west coast. You can also order Marquis O3 online.
