GURU has 6 different flavored energy drinks which are GURU Energy, GURU Lite, GURU Iced Tea, GURU Juicy Tangerine, GURU Juicy Superfruit and GURU Full On Lemonade. The two newest flavors are superfruit and lemonade. According to GURU Beverage Co., all of its energy drinks contain no preservatives, no taurine and is USDA organic certified. GURU is an energy drink designed for active and health conscious people.
The superfruit flavor tasted similar to cranberry fruit punch but had a tingle of sourness (more noticeable when warm) similar to the candy sweet tarts. The sourness may bother some people because it can cause a stinging sensation right at the tip of the tongue. Its berry red energy juice is non-carbonated and contains natural fruit juice to boost your energy.
The energy from the superfruit flavor was better than the iced tea flavor because it was more intense and lasted longer. The nice thing about it’s energy rush was that there was no bad side effects. The only side effects I felt was the tingling feeling in my head from the caffeine and energy blends. These energy ingredients kept me alert and focused, and my breathing and heart rate increased slightly. I advised not to drink this energy drink on an empty stomach to reduce the side effects.
GURU energy drinks are available nationwide (United States) at Whole Foods, Wild Oats and online. GURU is also available locally in New York City at Amish Market, Dean & DeLuca, Jubilee’s, and Zaytuna’s.
