- Mio Flavored additive
- Green Thunder Flavor
I threw the whole bottle away after two tastes. I only took the second taste to see if it really tasted as bad as it did.
It tastes like…..
No, that isn’t a compliment.
It’s ok, just not great.
It’s nowhere near as bad as other drinks I’ve had.
The tiny container that it comes in rocks and I love the fact that I don’t have to refrigerate it either.
All in all, not bad.
It just needs some tweaking in the taste department.
I’ll give a halfhearted recommendation if you need to spruce up your plain water without adding more inches to your waist.
Four stars for a five star product and a one star price.
Not too bad
Note, I had to dig on the internet to find the nutrient/caffeine numbers since the nutrition facts per servings are based on percentages. However, besides having zero (0) of most common facts which MiO is branded for (calories, sugar, carbs, etc.) and only 10mg of sodium, here’s what I came up with for the caffeine and B-complex:
Caffeine: 60mg (20mg less than Red Bull, and quite a few premium coffees)
B3 (Niacin) – 10% daily value – 1.8mg
B6 (Pyridoxine) – 10% daily value – 0.2mg
B12 (Cobalamine) – 10% daily value – 0.6µg (0.0006mg)
<2% mixture of Taurine, Guarana Extract, and Ginseng Extract (Panax)
*Side Note: B-vitamin consumption and overdose is really a non-issue with over the counter mixtures. Over abundance in your system will usually be urinated out, and quite a few other energy supplements have 6000% to 8000% of daily value B-vitamins (5-hour).
While it doesn’t come too close to the effects of main stream energy supplements and drinks, it has about the same effect as a light homemade cup of coffee with B vitamins. It also doesn’t add to you calorie count if you’re mixing it with water during your morning and afternoon shifts at work. And furthermore, being in a convenient container, you can almost take it with you anywhere. Make sure you start out with small amounts if you’re sensitive to caffeine.
Bottom line: Despite the price, I recommend trying this. Buy this flavor first (if you like the aforementioned described flavors).
Flavor = Green Thunder Butt
The Bad – In my opinion, it makes my water taste like an energy drink that went flat.
Have you ever tasted a flat red bull? What about a warm flat red bull? IMO, That’s pretty close to this flavor, except it not nearly as syrupy as a red bull. Some may like that, others may not… I’ll be surprised if the odds are better than 50/50 in either direction.
So good I can barely sit still!
I like that you add as much as you would like for a bigger kick if needed.
As for the taste, its not to bad. It kind of tastes like monster. Its got green apple hints and tastes a little like punch. I like it enough to drink it again. 🙂
great tastes good energy.
great with club soda
love it and hooked 🙂
Pretty darn good…
Tastes aweful no energy
Tastes like Medicine
So of the flavors that I have tried
Lemonade (Mio Liquid) – Very good – it has become one of my preferred drinks – easily 5 stars
Fruit Punch (Mio Liquid) – Good but not great flavor – a little too artificial tasting – 4 stars
Black Cherry -(Mio Energy) – I like it but I have had better tasting cherry drinks – I prefer it over “Vitamin Squeeze” 4 1/2 Stars
Green Thunder – (Mio Energy) – Tastes like medicine – easily my least favorite flavor – 2 stars (I added a star because of the caffeine)
Flat Energy Drink
Good, but not for long
Good Engery Shots – Recommended
These do provide a decent energy boost and the portable bottle makes it convenient to carry with me since they do not have to be refrigerated after opening. Three short squirt into a 9oz cup of water seems to provide the best tasting mix for my tastes.
These are great as a mid-afternoon pick me up, recommended!
Green Monster + Shaved Ice Syrup = Mio Green Thunder
Anyway, I’ll give a quick run down of Mio Energy. It taste like Green Monster without the carbonation and has a slight syrupy texture found in shaved ice. The good thing about Mio is that you can mix it light or strong depending on preference. Sometimes I squirt some in my mouth because I don’t mind the taste and it reminds me of warhead candies when it is concentrated. I think from reading the other reviews that the user put too much or expected this to taste like koolaid or something. If you read the contents you will know that it will have a slight flinstone vitamin-ish flavor to it. Mio doesn’t give me a huge boost like a good cup of coffee might. But add this to a bottle of water and it’s enough to keep you steady throughout your day.
