..::Product Review::.. Volo Vitamins' Volo Energy Stickpacks

My Review of Volo Energy Stickpacks

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"Volo Energy isn’t just about working out harder or getting more done. It’s about feeling great, no matter what’s on your to-do list.

We’ve taken our proprietary blend of vitamins, minerals, and seventeen different fruits and added just the right amount of natural energy boosters, including a full complement of B vitamins and essential amino acids. These energizing nutrients help both body and mind power through tough workouts and recover more quickly and more completely.

Volo Energy is ultra portable, has no added sugar, and is ready to hit the gym when you are. Just dissolve a pack in a glass of water or juice and enjoy a fresh, delicious way to hydrate your body and give it the nutrients it needs—no matter what lies ahead."


I was a sent (4) 4g Berry Burst Stickpacks and (3) Citrus Stickpacks from Volo Vitamins to review.  
The price for a sample pack is $4.99, and qualifies for free shipping with any $25 order.

Packaging & Presentation of 
Volo Energy Stickpacks

I really like portable mixes, so when I learned of Volo Vitamins, I was excited to give it a try.  This is an energizing blend of vitamins, perfect for powering through tough workouts, etc.  

Each packet contains 4g of powder, enough to flavor an 8 oz glass/bottle of water or juice.  The packets are easy to open; they have a perforated tear-strip on the top.

The expiration dates are clearly stamped on each stickpack.  The back of each stickpack gives the supplement facts.  They are really small, but if you look close you can read them.

The two flavors of Volo Energy Stickpacks are citrus and berry burst.  The citrus is the yellow pack...

...and the red pack is berry burst.

My sample pack came with a card that outlined the benefits of Volo Vitamins Energy Stickpacks:  17 fruit blend, just 5 calories, no added sugar, all-natural ingredients, no artificial flavors or sweeteners, gluten free, on-the-go convenience.  The back of the card provided supplement facts for all of the Volo Vitamins' product offerings.  It is easy to compare the qualities at a glance.

My Personal Experience with Volo Energy Stickpacks

Of course I had to try both of the flavors (not at the same time!).  I chose to go with the citrus first. It couldn't have been easier.  Open the packet up and pour the powder in a glass, and then add 8 ounces of cold water, stir, and enjoy! 

Secondly, I tried the berry burst.

My husband also tried them!  He chose the berry burst.

...so--  the big question.  How did it taste?  Not that great.  It was pretty good at the top, but it became more bitter near the end of the glass.  I stirred it really well, too.  On a good note, the flavors really did taste as advertised.

How did it make me feel?  GREAT.  EXCELLENT.  ENERGIZED.  Really.  Volo Energy Stickpacks really do work.   I rather drink these than overload my body with unhealthy energy drinks. I felt naturally energized, not like I was going to crash at any moment.  

Pros of Volo Energy Stickpacks
  • These rock at providing a natural feeling energy that stays without a crash.  I felt great for hours after drinking it and after a long walk.
  • The packets are convenient.  You can keep some in your car, purse, pocket, etc.
  • All-natural, no added flavors or sweeteners.
  • Only 5 calories.  Yes, please!
Cons of Volo Energy Stickpacks
  • The taste. It's not awful per say, but there is residual powder at the bottom of the glass that does not mix in, no matter how well you stir.  This powder tastes really bitter, but it is tolerable.

        These are really awesome for on-the-go.  It's so much easier and cost-effective to carry packets around than to spend money on large cans/bottles.

        The flavors are true to taste, and it is very easy to use the pack.  Volo Energy Stickpacks provide a lengthy source of natural-feeling energy that does not result in an end-of-the-day slump.

        Thank you for the feedback. Some of our regular customers pour the stickpacks into 16oz of water so like a water bottle. Glad to hear you liked the healthier buzz after taking Volo Energy too!
