Product Review: Pussy Energy Drinks (yes, really)

Thursday, April 26, 2012

While walking around the Vitality Show, I had to do a double take when I walked by a vintage Fiat decorated with pink flowers and giant signs that say "pussy." Yes, pussy. With a confused look on my face, I slowly approached the booth.  Turns out the product for sale was Pussy energy drink, "a 100% natural drink." According to the website, "It is made with a blend of fresh white grape juice from Southern Italy, pressed Mexican limes and lightly carbonated water. These are then mixed with Grenadilla and Lychee flavours, infused with six selected botanical herbs." I was lucky enough to score 2 cans to try out for myself.  The cans are white and sized like the energy drink that gives you wings.

My office mate is an energy drink king.  He has at least one Monster or Red Bull a day, along with a can of Coke and a tea (maybe he should sleep more?).  Of course he laughed out loud when I asked him to share my Pussy to give me his opinion (Note the advertising slogan: 'The drink is pure, it's you mind that is the problem.').  We divided up the can and gave it a go.

I think the drink tastes like sparkling grape juice and leaves my stomach feeling fine.  Other energy drinks make my tummy hurt a bit (maybe because they are too acidic?).  My office mate called it refreshing and agreed the taste was pleasant.  Even though I drank a half a can, I felt a pick-me-up within a half hour.

The second can I had on a Saturday morning on my way to work.  It is a 45 minute commute at 8am and I always feel a little sleepy.  It is my job to motivate and instruct my clients at the gym, and I can use all the help I can get that early on a weekend morning.  Considering the time of day (some soft drinks don't go down so well first thing in the morning), the drink was just as delicious as it was at work.  It energized me at work without a big crash at the end of my shift.

Overall, I say give Pussy energy drinks a try for a clean, crisp lift.  The drink is now available at Tesco, Selfridges, and Itsu, making it much more accessible to me in London.  I think I am ready to switch!

Pussy Drinks did not pay me for this review. They graciously gave me two cans and all opinions are honest and my own (and my office mate's). If you have a product you would like me to review, please contact me mollie@ptmollie.com

  1. Great drink, and a much healthier alternative to some others on the market...
