Golazo’s Mango-Limon flavored energy drink is, as the name states, a mango and lime flavored energy drink. The product has been formulated to be 90 calories per can, which they’ve achieved through the use of stevia. From our perspective, we’re not sold on using an expensive ingredient like stevia unless you are going for zero calories (or close to that). Fortunately, the stevia is mostly hidden, with the a slight aftertaste the only place that it’s really noticeable. In terms of energy ingredients, this product blends 100mg of caffeine (from caffeine, guarana, and yerba mate), electrolytes, and D-ribose. Packaging utilizes Golazo’s soccer themed brand, which feels authentic and inspired, but not yet a mainstream alternative to the big brands. If there’s anything about the design that we’re not overly fond of, it’s the seemingly random person pointing up at the logo. Overall, this is a good effort from Golazo.
