Mixing energy and "alertness" functions into one beverage, HyDrive A is attempting to create something unique to offer to the consumer. However, while that conceptually sounds good, it's not really explained, leaving consumers to wonder what it is about this drink that aids in alertness (caffeine?). On the other hand, the product's flavor is extremely pleasant, with an enjoyable kiwi strawberry flavor and a non-carbonated base. Adding 145mg of caffeine gives the product it's energy kick, while energy stalwarts taurine, ginseng, guarana (adding natural caffeine), amino acids, and B vitamins have also been added. A low calorie profile (30 per bottle) is certainly a plus, while a nicely executed blend of sweeteners (sucrose and sucralose) give the product a full strength level of sweetness with minimal aftertaste. Overall, this product is an enjoyable tasting one and delivers a nice kick of energy, but the secondary function needs a little bit more to make it seem like something that adds value to the drink.
