If you know me , you know I am a fan of almost anything Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. I often grab an energy drink in the morning and before any workouts to get myself through the day. When I first heard of Zoa I imagined it would be a standard energy drink, but its marketed as a hybrid pre-workout or energy booster.
We have tried all the flavors (both zero sugar and sugar) in place of my go to zero ultra Monsters. I did my best to remain unbiased, because of the blood oath I swore to support everything “The Rock. This post will focus on the zero sugar version because thats mainly what I was drinking during my first thirty days.
Zoa energy promotes itself has a healthy, energy drink for those with an active lifestyle. Right on the can Zoa focuses on an energy blend of immunity, focus, hydration, and body. As someone who has been drinking energy drinks for some years, I was curious if I would see a spike. Honestly, I really did not feel to much difference at all, even when going to the gym.
My standard energy drink is the Monster zero ultra sunrise, because has the highest caffeine at 150mg. I could simply have built up a tolerance to that level of caffeine, but I was hoping that I would feel more energy. When I did drink Zoa I felt as awake and aware as when I consume my monsters, its just that I like the taste of Monster zero ultra better
If I’m comparing Zoa to other energy drinks, I would say its not my favorite tasting energy drink. Rockstar, Monster, and even the new Mountain Dew gamer drinks all have a better flavor than the Zoa. I can drink monster drinks even if I’m not tired because I like the way it tastes, Zoa doesn’t have taste factor for me.
The best comparison I can think of us FitAid drinks, especially when comparing the Wild Orange flavor. After leaving my Zoa drink in the car over night, the entire car smelled like hot, spoiled Zoa. I want to say it’d because its filled with more organic ingredients, but it certainly was a bit unappealing. If I were to rank my favorite flavors, lemon lime, original, wild orange, and then supper berry. I also found drinking Zoa to be very dry, I actually became more thirsty.
I would never say I do not enjoy Zoa, nor would I tell anyone not to try it, but with so many other tasty and yes, probably less healthy energy drink alternatives, its hard for this to be my first choice. Some flavors are better than others, your caffeine tolerance will dictate how much of a buzz you get off of Zoa, but it’s definitely worth trying.
One thing I am sure of, is “The Rock” does not build companies he doesn’t believe in, nor put out products he believes people wont love. Unfortunately, this time I am not in love with Zoa like I am the other million things he is involved with, but thats okay. Hopefully as time goes on, the recipe will change, or other flavors will come out that get me hooked.
