Taste Test: Cobra +Plus Vitamin C

I don’t usually take energy drinks as a wake-me-up-er before a workout or a run but one weekday last month when I was lethargic at the end of the day but still needed to go for a workout and there was no coffee in sight, I tried the Cobra +Plus Vitamin C.  Here’s what happened:

Cobra +Plus Vitamin C.

I usually do my workout after office hours while waiting for rush hour traffic to subside.  Occasionally, it could be a challenge as there are workdays that end with myself feeling exhausted.  I normally go for a cup of coffee to wake myself up, but there are times my tongue want a different flavor.  And as I have a bottle of Cobra +Plus Vitamin C lying in our office refrigerator (samples sent over by FUSE a few days earlier), I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try it.  And since it’s in a bottle, I can take it while walking to the gym.

As expected, I drank the entire bottle long before I arrived at the gym.  I was still feeling a bit drowsy, so I didn’t really think it worked—at least in the waking me up part—but at least my taste buds were happy to taste something else aside from coffee.  Cobra +Plus Vitamin C tastes like an orange-flavored soft drink so there wasn’t anything exotic about its flavor.

Even after my quick run on the treadmill, I was still feeling sleepy.  When I was working out though, I noticed that I was lifting my heavier weights surprisingly easier than expected—despite still feeling so!  For some strange reasons, I wasn’t getting “woke” but I was feeling the effects of the caffeine in Cobra +Plus Vitamin C!

I’m not claiming that Cobra +Plus Vitamin C will make you suddenly stronger, in fact it didn’t even make me feel more awake after drinking an entire bottle.  But if you’re a person like me that benefits from caffeine when doing strenuous activities, it may help you to some extent—even if you don’t feel like it does!  And since it has vitamin C, it may help your immune system ward off those possible infections around you.  It doesn’t have any weird taste that some energy drinks may have but since it is carbonated, you may want to take it with some food.

Overall, Cobra +Plus Vitamin C is a good addition to the lineup of Cobra energy drinks.  Now you have one more flavor to choose from to avoid taste fatigue!  One bottle has more vitamin C than a typical ascorbic acid tablet so for those needing to increase their intake, this could be an added source.
