Vital Energy’s Tangerine flavor is a caffeine and vitamin enhanced beverage that’s also relatively restrained when it comes to calories (60 per 8 ounces). From a flavor perspective, it’s different than the other flavors that we sampled, thanks in part to the use of xanthan gum. This gives the product a more viscous body, almost as if they are trying to create an orange creamsicle flavor. However, the tangerine flavor is rather muted, having a very subtle and clean flavor. Functionally, the product has B vitamins, vitamin C, calcium, 150mg of caffeine (150 per bottle), and 100mg of taurine (per bottle). So, this product’s main effect is going to be a caffeine rush, with about the same about of caffeine per ounce as a standard energy drink. Packaging, which has recently been redesigned, is clean, but somewhat devoid of personality, with the exception being the copy that’s on the back of the bottle. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, with the product having a clean front panel that makes the product easy to figure out quickly.
