[Review] Hype Energy Enlite

By Kat Leonard

Okay. I am not a girlie person. Nor am I TOO concerned about my figure. But apparently there is some sort of market out there for energy drinks geared towards women. I am a woman. But that doesn’t mean I want a pink can. I am almost offended by the fact that companies think they need to make a pink can to attract women. Of course… I’m not a usual woman, am I?

Oh well. I’m sure there are women out there attracted to the pink color of cans, clothes, etc., but I just am not one of those. I never have been, I never will be. What’s even worse is that the can is tiny. You know those cans you would get with your Lunchables sometimes filled with that subpar Cola? That size. I hope this doesn’t feminize me.

Review:

Sniffing at the contents, it smells fruity with a kind of chemical odor to it as well. This does not make me want to try it any faster. Tasting it, it is almost exactly how it smells. Fruity. I can’t really pinpoint all of the fruits but strawberry is definitely in there. I HATE STRAWBERRY. Yeuch… Though to be fair I am not really cringing at the fact I have to finish the can. Also, there isn’t much of a kick to this. How do I know before I finish the can? The ingredients list. It is powered by 1,000mg of Taurine and 80mg of caffeine. There are some nice vitamins though like B3, B6, things like that so it will add to the whole kick factor.

Hype is all about the fact that their drinks are natural and healthy. In fact I have another drink in my fridge that calls itself organic (I’ll be reviewing that at a later date. It’s the biggest can out of them all). In my sample box I also received something akin to a shot glass. Kids these days say it’s called a shooter. Okay. Well whatever it is I must admit that it is kind of cute. Unfortunately I can’t try this ‘shooter’ yet because of medical things (no booze for me). Maybe when I go to try the other 3 cans of Hype I will be able to mix it with some of my schnapps or rum. Erm… do you mix rum with energy drinks? Oh well. Never hurts to try!

Where was I? Oh right… Hype Enlite. If you can get past the fruity smell, the fruity taste, and the PINK CAN then you might as well at least try it. It’s got a moderate kick. Again, this stuff is geared towards women. I guess women don’t need the same 100-200mg of caffeine kick that men do? I don’t know. I do know I’m more masculine than feminine and that I damn well need more than just 80mg of caffeine. Though it does have taurine which studies show does nothing towards giving you a kick. So basically the leg that the drink has to stand on is the caffeine leg. Taurine has better things to do in our bodies than give us an energy boost though. Research it sometime.

Final Words

Without being uber feminist, I will say that the pink can is… really only going to attract Elle Woods from Legally Blonde. I probably would have not picked up the can in my local supermarket or gas station by color alone. Yes, that is how I pick out my food, drink, and clothes. By color.

The 80mg of caffeine falls way short of the content in other energy drinks. The taurine (1000mg of it) is necessary for muscle function so… I guess this drink can kind of help you work out a little bit at the gym? If you can stand taking such a pink can into the gym.

Really, there are far better drinks to grab. I’m sorry but it’s the truth. And the fact that it’s so small compared to other energy drink cans, you’d be better off buying something else. It isn’t bad to try, just not something I personally would make a habit of drinking. The kick isn’t there, the smell and taste are off-putting to me. Of course, your mileage may vary so who knows? This pink drink may be for you.

Score: 6.0/10 (Below Average)

Aroma: 4.0/10 (not something I’d want to sit around and sniff. In fact, the couple of sniffs of it were enough)
Taste:
6.0/10 (I personally hate strawberry, but it seems like something you could use in a daiquiri or some sort of other fruity mixed drink)
Kick:
7.0/10
Value:
7.0/10

    Lol what is with the girly drink cans that come in pink! Ridiculous. I’ll stick to my rockstar and amp ah thank you. 80 mg is silly

    Shame you don’t review the product in relation to the other products that are also available from Hype. The beauty of the product Hype is the fact that they thought about catering for all! MFP (more f-ing power) is the energy drink for the tough mother – F’s that need a boost, Hype also has the standard “beautiful blue” can, and Enilte, which does exactly what it says on the tin, and the organic version, my personal favourite! Hype also has a malt drink and small shots of pure BOOST that, if I am honest, turn me into something comparable to the Duracell Bunny. The shot glass provided is a winner – should be used primarily for vodka, up to the curvature which indicates the perfect amount, topped up with your Hype of choice. Try it, the shape of the shooter means that you don’t get that horrible liquor-first-soft-drink-after that is oh so common with a mixed shot….
    Overall, hats off Hype! They provide a range of products to cater for all habits and natures!

    Energy drinks are great but most of them contain caffeine. I would usually prefer the ones based on green tea.:

Once you’ve purchased a well-reviewed system, it
    is time to experiment with learning the art of spray tanning.
    Many people make weekly visits to the salon or purchase do-it-yourself-tanning kits such
    as My Spray Tan in order to have the effects of a sun tan but avoid
    the skin ramifications. Kim Kardashian once compared
    herself to ‘tanning mom’ Patricia Krentcil on Twitter.
    glow and many find that using fake tanning products can give you that
    edge, that confidence and a feeling of beauty.

    When starting your own spray tanning business it is so important to have the good quality equipment
    suitable to the type of business you want to operate.
    You will have a new layer of dead skin cells
    that will absorb the tanning pigments more evenly.
    Most people might think that spray tan is tacky, but there is a
    lot to be said for it. The high absorbent formula ensures
    that the lotion does not seem patchy or leave streaks of color.
    When tanning the face, have the client shut their eyes, take a
    deep breath and then you should begin tanning at the forehead
    and work down. You may have to get someone to apply the self tanning product to your back and areas that you cannot
    reach by hand.

    Replacing the wax ring is a lot less difficult and expensive than replacing the
    toilet, but if you have wanted a new commode, this is your chance.
    Perhaps each toilet flush is becoming a little slower, or the tub isn’t draining after a shower, or an ominous noise is emanating from the sink.
    Toilet paper is among the most essential product because you are always going to need it and you use it all the time.

    One function of the bustle and the hoopskirt was
    to make the waist look smaller and to enhance the bust.
    Instead try a nice pair of wool or cotton chino dress trousers with a
    button down shirt, sweater vest, tie, and sport jacket.

    It will take a few days for it to go off completely.
    Of course, be careful of counterfeit products when choosing electronic components.
    If you have been looking for a sunless tanning product, then this is the right place.
    If you go, say, twice in a week you’ll be
    tanner than if you had just gone once. The other precautions for applying a spray tan include wear clothes
    on all parts of your body that will not be tanned, standing
    still for about a minute after the application of the spray
    so that the skin dries evenly, and blotting your skin with a towel to remove any drips.
    No matter what season it is, many people want to have a great looking and beautiful tan all year round.
    The dead skin will fall off your body soon and you will be left with your winter white skin once
    again. Drag queens also tend to favour this type of foot wear, which I can understand, as generally as a group they
    are hardly subtle; mincing about with feather boas, silver eye shadow and gold
    lamé mini skirts. Your skin automatically flakes off, bringing your faux tan along for the
    journey. Visit As one of the leading tanning studios, i – TAN
    Advanced Tanning Studios can provide you with the best sun-kissed bronzed natural looking tan.

    Choose a soap that will cleanse your body and not just perfume it a little bit.

    Prepare a paste of gram (Cicer arietinum) flour in raw milk.
    Heating dries up the hair, which can also create a lot of problems for your hair.

    Good bye for now, look for our next piece of writing,
    coming shortly, from FLAT Rigs outriggers, shock cord snubber, and rigging kit.
    When tying the lines to your jugs use between 3′ and 6′ of line with a
    single hook attached. There are still unspoilt regions, but a lot of it is more like an open plan zoo that is

    First this website will offer you an explanation about how the test
    is designed and what subjects it will cover. If a debtor fails
    to make payments or cannot complete their plan, the trustee may convert the case into a true Chapter
