Review: Boca Lupo Energy Drink
"Boca Lupo or 'in the wolf's mouth' is Italian for good luck".
Hubby and I have been guzzling these for the last week, and can I just say, YUM! I accepted an offer to trial these drinks without really having heard of them, but knowing that I like most drinks I come across. It turns out Boca Lupo is an Italian energy drink.
OK, so I wasn't quite howling at the moon like their website suggests, but I did have a smile on my face from ear to ear. In the past, I haven't been a big fan of energy drinks. Both Mother and V are not my cup of tea, mainly because I don't enjoy the flavour. Boca Lupo, though, is delicious. It's 12% fruit plus Guarana and Caffeine for the energy hit. The fruits used are peach, orange, pineapple and maracuja. And it's a pretty pink colour, too!
Boca Lupo have omitted taurine, preservatives, artificial flavours and colours. It comes in a 330ml aluminium can, which serves to keep the drink cold. Not that it lasted that long when we opened our cans, though!
The main flavour hit is from the peach, which is just delicious. I can't say I felt much of an energy hit from my one can per night, but I imagine results would vary from person to person. Just a warning that this is not recommended for children (duh!), pregnant or lactating women or people who are sensitive to caffeine.
* I was sent a case of Boca Lupo for consideration. I received no payment and this post is my honest opinion.
What's your favourite energy drink?
