Loved the product, caffeine hit wasn't to intense. Grape flavour only recommended for serious grape lovers as it's fairly intense. Similar taste to grape fanta or chewing gum. Have ordered the gauva flavour to try next. Thanks Jonah Hill
This energy drink is supposed to be "healthy" and advertised as no sugar, no preservatives, no high fructose corn syrup, etc. but yet they add sucralose...which defeats the purpose of a 0 sugar drink. Sucralose raise up your blood sugar, insulin levels, and release harmful compounds. They could have just added stevia instead and it would have given it the same exact taste and was actually healthy. It just frustrates me when company's advertise something healthy when it is the complete opposite, this drink would have been 80% healthier if it actually had cane sugar in it. Never buying from this company again.
Celsius energy drinks are the only energy drinks I will consume. If you're like me and don't like the typical tastes of other energy drinks (red bull, monster, etc), I would highly recommend trying these. The sparkling versions are the best and I sip on one throughout the day, just 1 as it has so much caffeine and 2 makes me too jittery. However, if you have trouble sleeping, then I wouldn't suggest drinking these for at least 6 - 8 hours before bedtime as it will almost certainly keep you up. The sparkling grape is my favorite, second best is the wild berry, third is the orange. Cola is the absolute worst flavor. Tastes like a generic soda that's been left open to go flat and has lost most of the flavor. The watermelon is okay, but tastes the most artificial. I noticed when I started to perspire or feel warmer than usual, for me, it was working to boost metabolism and burn some calories. These are easy to build up a tolerance to the caffeine and lose some of the energy benefit after 1 - 3 months of daily use. So you might consider skipping a day every now and then to consume a smaller amount of caffeine to scale back on the tolerance and then come back to these for renewed benefit.
I drink both, but they are low carb but a bit different. FitAid Zero (5 Calories, 1g Carb) vs Celsius (10 Calories, 2g Carb) Both would be Keto Diet Friendly.
Energy / Recovery - Winner FitAid Zero Celsius has 200mg caffeine which is great (I don't drink coffee) so this can be a boost if you're really drained. But that's too much caffeine for everyday usage in my opinion. Guarana, Green Tea Leaf extract, and Ginger are the key energy pick me ups which you can find in other drinks. But Celsius does them right for a simple drink, it's a good boost for a pre-workout.
FitAid Zero has 45mg of Caffeine, and basically everything in Celsius above. But then they add a lot of recovery stuff, which you'll like if you're into healing (not just energy): BCAA, Glutamine, Omega-3, CoQ10, Turmeric, Glucosamine, Quercetin, Vitamin D3 and additional minerals: Magnesium & Potassium. More B Vitamins and a better version of B12 (methylcobalamin) which is better for those who don't methylate well. Holistically I want these in my body to help me get a cleaner boost. They make another version with Creatine but that's not my thing.
Taste - Winner: Tie I like the sparkling orange for Celsius (other choices available), but FitAid has a nice citrus taste for keto drink. Also, Celsius has more of a forced flavor profile.
Sweeteners - Winner: FitAid Zero FitAis uses Monkfruit and Stevia which are healthy ways to flavor a drink, especially for low carb / keto drinks. Celsius uses sucralose which is actually known to destroy gut microbiome. FitAid wins here.
Value - Winner: Celsius Celsius is the cheapest zero calories "healthy" drink. It's good if you need a pick me up instead of coffee or soda. FitAid Zero is more of a recovery drink that you can use anytime, but also after a workout or something physically exhausting.
