As gamers, we know how important it is to stay focused, especially during long gaming sessions or steaming, so some of us turn to caffeine to keep us going!
When I am streaming for hours at a time, I usually turn to energy drinks to keep up my concentration and energy levels.
The only issue was that, when drinking any type of energy drink, I tend to always have that “sugar high” and “crash”, which meant that whilst the energy drink gave me that boost, it didn’t last long, and I would always end up feeling more tired than I did before.
Our friends over at Sneak Energy were kind enough to hook us up with some samples of their products.
Firstly, the packaging it came in was amazing! The gaming designs all over the parcel was unique, and I knew exactly what it was!
Sneak offer sachets and tubs of a powder which you mix with water to make your energy drink. I was dubious at first, as usually I find when you mix a powder, sometimes you can get clumps that do not want to mix! However, the Sneak shakers are amazing, as is the formula of the powder! Not a single clump in sight every time.
Sneak pride themselves on not using sugar and other forms of energy-developing ingredients that your average store-bought drinks do to give you the boost that you need.
Each flavour is made up of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, Caffeine (as discussed) with natural colours and flavours, and they hide nothing from you. You can check out what is in each service whether it’s a sachet or you buy a whole tub of your favourite flavour.
All you need is 300 to 400ml of water (I prefer 400ml myself, but try both amounts and see what you like in terms of consistency) and a shaker! (I highly recommend the Sneak ones; they work great!)
The flavours I got to try were Sour Apple, Cherry Bomb, Blue Raspberry, Stealth, Strawberry Watermelon, Tropikilla and Purple Storm. Whilst I would love to tell you about each one individually, I think it would be best if I were to rank them according to my own personal taste. Please bear in mind that everyone’s personal taste is different. I do not like cherry flavoring, however, my friend could not get enough of Cherry Bomb. From my favourite to least, this is my list:
- Blue Raspberry
- Strawberry Watermelon
- Purple Storm
- Sour Apple
- Cherry Bomb
It was hard to rank them, as they all taste amazing and completely different from one another. Sneak offer taster packs and custom packs of sachets for a very reasonable price, so you can get a taste of each before you order your tub!
The newest addition to Sneak’s drinks are the 500ml cans of carbonated energy. In my opinion, these were the best for me! Usually I would drink cans of energy drink, so I am used to the carbonated drinks.
The cans come in three flavours: Blue Raspberry, Tropikilla and Strawberry Watermelon. Again, I will rank these according to my own taste. Starting from my favourite:
- Strawberry Watermelon
- Blue Raspberry
This is not to say I did not like the Blue Raspberry. In fact, I really enjoyed it.
To briefly describe the flavours:
- Blue Raspberry – A light sweet taste, not as strong tasting as the powder, but light and enjoyable.
- Tropikilla – A more “juicey” taste, not as sweet as Blue Raspberry, but more refreshing.
- Strawberry Watermelon – My favourite of the lot! A slight sour taste, which compliments the sweetness of the drink. It tastes just like watermelon sweets! With no sugar too!
The cans come in packs of 12. You can either have 12 cans of one flavour or a variety pack, if you cannot stick to one, just like me!
I can honestly say that this has been an extremely pleasant experience, and I will continue to drink Sneak during gaming sessions and streaming. Sneak has a way of hitting you just when you need it most. The best part? No “crash” at all!
The flavours are strong enough to be enjoyable and not too strong that they almost hit you in the throat!
Sneak can be ordered from their website over at https://sneakenergy.com/. They even have a deals section to get money off or even a free shaker with some orders! You will not be disappointed!
