Full disclosure: I had purchased this bundle with 1,000 points from my VGR points balance, earned with creating threads and posting on existing threads. No money or favours were exchanged for this bundle. I have not received any points for the SNEAK Elite programme for this. I was offered to choose the flavour I would receive in the tub. I have experience with SNEAK (and I am going to capitalise every instance of SNEAK because it's too late to stop now) products, and this will compare to past experiences. Reviewing drinks is not my forte. This disclosure is not part of the minimum required 250 word count.

The package that was sent to me, in a well-filled with packing paper box of their own branding consists of the following: one Bit Friday shaker; one tub of Blue Raspberry powder (40 servings); and five sachets of Neon Punch, Stealth, Strawberry Millions, and Strawberry Watermelon flavour powders. This would ordinarily cost £70.20 and there's currently an offer where each order contains five Strawberry Watermelon sachets. Each flavour has been taste-tested and consumed fully in 700ml of cool tap water (the recommended amount of 300-400ml is too sweet for me).

Bit Friday Shaker:
The Bit Friday Shaker is a tinted, ~80% transparent bottle with an ice catcher should you wish to shake it with ice. It doesn't feel quite as sturdy as the "OG Shaker", but not so fragile that it can't survive anywhere near as many solid drops on hard surfaces. Both are plastic (metal is available at an expected premium), and feature measurements on the side up to 700 millilitres (ml) and 25 ounces (oz).
While I do like the transparency to see on the outside how much water you've got left in, it doesn't make the contents look particularly appetising, the tint making the water look murky. Even after being washed out it looks like droplets of mud line the inside.
The stopper on the lid isn't as strong as the OG Shaker, as shown by how easily it leaks from all sides of the lid at any slightly tilted angle. It fails its job as a shaker, as when it is shaken water goes everywhere. I had originally criticised the OG Shaker for being too hard to open but it's become a positive in this context.
The aesthetic is generally pleasing. The faux 16-bit SNEAK logo and SNEAK bunny evoke images of Hotline Miami and play nicely into its pop-culture marketing. Do you like slurping people?

Blue Raspberry:
I'll first of all comment on the tub and say that it's very secure with long neck and threading, as well as a thick foil lid. It contains 400 grams (g) of powder, which amounts to 40 10g servings, which at approximately £39.95 is one serving per £1 spent. It also comes with a little spoon to pour in a single serving... somewhere, I had to do some digging for it. Given the fineness of the powder I didn't expect to find it at the top.
Blue Raspberry is a generic  raspberry-flavoured drink, and tastes much better in its carbonated can form than a powder as that reminded me of energy drink Red Devil, which I can't find anywhere else. It's not as tart as other Sneak flavours (bearing in mind, again, I drink these at 700ml and not the advised 300-400ml) and that works for me. It also has less of the chalky after-effect that Sneak has been widely noted and criticised for. It passes my 'gulp' test, which is four large gulps rather than my usual sipping, as it doesn't overwhelm the tastebuds and doesn't make me feel nauseous or dehydrated afterwards. It also passes my sampling test, wherein I hold it and swill it around the gums for six seconds; again, no battered taste-buds and no dry throat afterwards.

Neon Punch:
A 10g satchet that strangely doesn't last as long as the plastic tub (these will last until September 2022, meanwhile the tub is fine until 2024), but it seems secure enough. I have had expired sachets before and they seemed fine, but you'd best be safe than sorry. Also don't consume more than two of these per day.
This sachet is filled with pear and guava flavour, far more pear than guava. Not exactly the Tropikilla, but a refreshing fruity drink that doesn't overpower the senses in either the gulp or sample test.

Stealth:
"The mystery flavour. No, we're not telling you what it is," says the webpage. This is something I don't particularly like about SNEAK: if the flavour's name doesn't give it away, nothing else will. The amount of threads I've seen people asking "what flavour is [x]" tells me others have the same problem, and I'm reminded of how glad I am to have received these for free.
Moving on, Stealth smells different depending on what it's in. In the sachet it has a strong liquorice smell. I don't like liquorice. When poured into the water and shaken it smelt of raw sewage. I don't like raw sewage either, but I'd probably take that over liquorice. Dreading what it must taste like I put it to my lips and found it tastes of neither. It's quite pleasant, but it's very tart. It's an artificial sour flavour that has enough sweetness to not turn me off it entirely. Easily the strongest flavour I've tried of theirs without feeling the urge to throw up (see below). It's nice but it definitely needed to be in 700ml of water, and does not survive the gulp or sampling test. Like the Strawberry Millions next, it needs to be sipped to be enjoyed fully.
I don't know why this one was discontinued from the UK, but I'm going to save these for special occasions as a result of that. I'm rather glad I got these instead of my Grape Punch.

Strawberry Millions:
I must admit I did buy this one partly for its marketing material. It's an attractive packet in that neon aesthetic, a nice change from the street art SNEAK normally go for. Because I've got five of these I'm going to use them more sparingly than not; the dessert to my dinner. It tastes like Strawberry Millions, go figure, but is still rather tart in 700ml of water. It doesn't pass my gulp or sample test, making it much better to savour with small sips.
On a side note, I strongly discourage trying the Bubblegum Millions flavour. When I say it's a bad flavour I don't just mean that I dislike it; I'm not a fan of the next flavour but I can at least drink it. Bubblegum Millions tasted exactly as it should, albeit revolting as a drink. I can eat them, I can eat bubblegum lollipops, but I cannot drink bubblegum-flavoured water. It made me sick to my stomach and I had to keep adding water just to finish it. Their mixologists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

Strawberry Watermelon:
Last but not least, the sachet that can't be torn open. For some reason these required scissors as there was nowhere to tear it. This one tastes absolutely as advertised: the strawberry and watermelon flavours alternate with each sip, and even if I'm not fond of eating watermelon it makes for a refreshing drink. With its creamy texture it could be mistaken for juice more than a squash or flavoured water. It passes my gulp test as there's no chalky after-texture, though there is some cloying at the back of my throat which requires another swig to wash it down. The sample test of swilling the gums fails however as it's far too sweet, but at least the bitter feeling it leaves on my teeth washes away quickly. I can easily see this one being my favourite served with ice.

How is it as an energy drink?
SNEAK Energy is marketed toward trendy young people who wear hoodies and know what 'no cap' means. I'm none of those things. I'm an obese Englishman who would indeed have 'no cap' in a real game of Capture the Flag. That, I believe, is 'no cap'. But does it give me the energy to capture the flag, real or virtual? Not really, no.

I will say that I do feel more alert and have a buzz from a single bottle of water laced with SNEAK, but it doesn't make my performance in games measurably better. My awareness has improved but my reflexes see virtually no difference at all, and while I'm more focussed I feel that's because of the water more than the caffeine. Bearing in mind I already drink Diet Coke by default, so having the jolt of energy from changing my drinking habits is more thanks to Yorkshire Water than the ctf_2fort marching powder.

The marketing has more energy than the drink itself. It was corny at first but I came to like the appeal of the advertisements, and they probably contribute no small amount of placebo effect to whatever energy gain there is to be had.

This drink may well be better in the hands (or throat) of someone who is considerably fitter and healthier. Energy drinks are meant to supplement a healthily balanced lifestyle, not replace one. I don't expect miracles of this, but I'd rather they advertise the flavour than the benefits it claims to have for its target audience.

So, is it a Warlock Win?
As an energy drink it gets neither a thumb up or down. When I drank this at the gym just over a year ago it was very refreshing and encouraged me to drink my recommended daily intake of water. It was a nice treat and something to look forward to during a long day of exercise. But being sat at my desk it's just a sugar-free drink that's a bit better for my teeth unlike the brown sodas I regularly consume.
There is an improvement to alertness and focus, and I do have some get-up-and-go energy, but it isn't a gamechanger quite like replacing a bot with a decent human player in something like SplitGate.

As a water flavourer though it's incredible, that aspect easily gets a thumb up. The flavours I've had so far are incredible, and while the ingredients are natural they don't taste it and this is likely due to the intense sweeteners they've added, which is too much even when I'm adding over double the water they recommend. It's done well to encourage me to drink more water, and does a great job of seeing to my sweet tooth thanks to it being sugar free.

So all in all, the experience is more positive than negative. If this sounds like something you'd like I recommend picking up a Taster Pack containing six sachets of your choosing.

I am really impressed by sheer abundance of flavor choices when it comes to the powders - twelve in total. Before I try Sneak and purchase the Starter Bundle I have the following questions to those who have tried Sneak's product line.

  1. How long does it take for Sneak energy to kick in and take effect?
  2. Per the FAQ page, each Sneak pouch contains 150mg of caffeine per serving -is that more than, less than, or in line with similar energy drink products?
  3. Is Sneak truly 100% sugar free?
  4. How is the carbonatation and fizziness? Is Sneak easy to drink quickly (or even chug) or does it need to be sipped and consume over an hour like a Monster drink?

I’m always looking for new sugar-free drinks to try while gaming, so I’m very interested! At a glance at the product pages, it looks like their ingredients are exactly what they say they are: amino acids, vitamins, etc. That makes me think that not only would these work great as energy drinks, but also would be pleasant to drink when I am feeling under the weather. 

@Withywarlock Very insightful review (I'd expect nothing less). Now I am so curious if the "Stealth" flavor actually has any licorice notes in it (I actually love licorice, so that'd be amazing).

Shagger Says: Sneak Energy

 

First and foremost, another thank you to @DC and Sneak every for making this possible with the promotion here of VGR through bid for rewards. Even with my appreciation, this review is still gonna offer up nothing but the honest truth. Not that Sneak energy need to be worried as I was genuinely and pleasantly surprised by this energy drink powder and everything that it offered. Still, one would have to part with with equivalent of over $90 to buy the same package I received, so is it worth it? Let's snoop around sneak and find out.

 

To set the parameters for this review, let establish what Sneak energy is. This is a caffeinated energy drink make for gaming that is mean increase alertness whilst also providing hydration. Sneak themselves recommend no more than two portions a day and to drink one portion before or during gaming. I was drinking the powder you mix with water in a shaker/drinking bottle that was part of the package. It's easy enough to make, pour either sachet or levelled scoop (10g) into the shaker, pour in 300ml – 400ml of water then shake and drink. However, I personally found much more success in ignoring the recommend 10 second shake time for closer to 20-30 seconds. Despite this, it is easy to prepare with clear instructions, so nobody should be put off by a lack of convenience.

 

In my package:

 

1 x 400g (40 servings) Blue Raspberry flavour tub

1 x 700ml branded drinking bottle/shaker

5 x Strawberry flavour sachet (10g, single serving)

5 x Sneak flavour sachet (10g, single serving)

5 x Strawberry and Watermelon flavour sachet (10g, single serving)

5 x Neon Punch flavour sachet (10g, single serving)

 

I touched on the price earlier, but to understand what your getting it's important understand how much value you get. Fist step, how much does this actually cost? Well, here it is, blunt and honest (I said it my package would cost the equivalent of around $90 and it would, but 5 of the sachets I received aren't listed here. More on that later.):

 

image_2022-09-09_185653905.png.3eeeabdc97e84c4690b5ff9117f6adfe.png

 

To really understand this though, we have to break it down to price it per portion. Lucky for you, I've done the math for you and it works out at around £1 per 10g (300ml-400ml once mixed) portion for the tub (around $1.18) and £1.35 per sachet ($1.58). For context, that's pretty good value compared to Red Bull;

 

893955450_sneakvsredbull.thumb.png.1f14c4353a52a4177de794c56c4462c1.png

 

 

 

And I'd say about the same as Monster Energy, give or take.

 

2105734843_sneakvsmonster.thumb.png.6857fe419925781e7929c9ac909c654d.png

(these prices are form a major supermarket chain that operates here in the UK)

 

So what we have here with Sneak is a something that isn't exactly cheap, but does offer value in the long run. One thing that does need pointing out (and in answer to @Scottypops question) is that Sneak energy contains A LOT more caffeine that the two brands I'm comparing it to here. About twice as much as in that 250ml can of Red Bull and with about the same as that can of Monster Energy, but but Monster is a larger, more diluted mix with a 500ml portion. In a more direct comparison, Red Bull has 30mg of caffeine per 100g, Monster has 36mg per 100g and Sneak (may vary depending on how you mix it) contains 50mg per 100g, so it's a lot stronger.

 

So it's a higher install price for longer term value (and more caffeine), but how does it taste compared to regular energy drinks?

 

Before I offer my thoughts on each flavour, I want to talk about the bottle itself;

 

277845766_sneakbottle1.thumb.jpg.b35ddbcea3227634db36cf181722494e.jpg

 

1010365850_sneakbottle2.thumb.jpg.e7c50cc69ebe20562164feb0e03201ff.jpg

 

As you can see from the images I posted, it looks cool. A new one would cost £10 to buy (equivalent to around $12-$13). For that price, you would expect something decent and that is what you get. There are a number of designs to choose from. This particular bottle is the "Bit Friday" design made of a dark grey, translucent plastic printed with very nice Sneak decals, a screw top lid with a nice, rigid drinking cap, an ice catcher that can be easily removed for cleaning and both ml and Fl ounce scales printed on the sides. I like it, it's better quality that I would have expected and feels like it's built to last provide one looks after it.

 

Onto the most important part, the actual drink and the flavours. Now, it's an energy drink, not a magic potion from Gandalf, so don't expect to suddenly go MGL by drinking it, but I would say Sneaks' claims of improving alertness and concentration whilst keeping you hydrated do hold up. It also helps cut out some hunger as it claims to be a food supplement and it does stem off hunger. I know what some of you may be thinking with that and the answer is no, I would not recommend Sneak for people as an aid to dieting as you crash hard and suddenly with hunger when the effect is gone and may in fact encourage you to eat more and outside of regular meal times. A single serving does hit like a strong cup of coffee, but Sneak is more refreshing and easier to prepare. I'll talk more about the actual flavours in a moment, but I do like it. Each flavour is distinctive and overall, they taste nice.

Now to rank each flavour. The order that you read these is the same order I tried them, with the numbers ranking them with 1 being my favourite and 5 my least favourite.

 

5. Strawberry Millions

image_2022-09-09_174942391.png.c1239aae73d48b7dcb5adb0328ae4a63.png

 

Strong, potent flavour even at maximum recommended 400ml dilution. Tasted nice, not bitter like most every drinks, reminded me of milkshake in the smell and taste. It was a bit gritty, though. I shook if for the recommended 10 seconds, but it still didn't  taste like it had mixed right. After this, I started shaking it for longer and never encountered this issue again even after re-trying this flavour. My better half was along for the ride on this taste test and she wasn't a huge fan of this flavour, but even though this was my least favourite, I did still like it. It is refreshing and sweet however this does not taste like the strawberry millions sweets.

 

4. “Stealth” Flavour

image_2022-09-09_180143805.thumb.png.222941f3fb3de94792f6119831600775.png

 

Honestly, with such a vague name for this flavour, I wasn't sure what to expect, that became a sense of disappointment when my better half liked this one the most and claimed the remaining sachets for herself. Flavour and aroma of sherbet double dip, interesting given sneak is made with zero sugar. Sweet without being overpowering, this was a well balanced flavour that was very pleasant overall. 

 

 

2. Neon Punch

image_2022-09-09_180750564.png.eeaaa2ce8ea73d0c93fe3bbbc4845833.png

 

I was honestly expecting something along the lines of sour candy with this, but it was tasted like fruity bubble-gum and was very refreshing (Bubbaloo tutti-fruity bubble-gum). It's not as sweet nor as bold as the other flavours I had tried up to this point, but one of my favourites. My better half thought this one was OK compared to the others. It was at this point that I started to notice her preference for the sweeter flavours whilst I preferred the more fruity, subtle ones. Knowing how our palettes differ, that does make sense.

 

 

1. Strawberry and Watermelon

1357252654_Screenshot2022-09-09182021.png.abcf851643459937b85440df70a2ae73.png

 

Before I get onto how this one tasted, there is something a little odd about how, or perhaps why, I even got a chance to even try this flavour in the first place. Everything else that was in the package I knew was coming because it was on the invoice I got in my email and was what I had selected. These five sachets of Strawberry Watermelon Flavour, were not;

 

1497662330_Screenshot2022-09-09181652.thumb.png.8430dd19eaadd2683ecaab574b9d6b5c.png

 

So why was it included? I honestly have no idea. Maybe Sneak gives this flavour out in all thier samples or something, but regardless I won't look a gift horse in the mouth because this ended up being my favourite flavour of the lot. Very refreshing, but still potent and strong in flavour with just enough sweetness to give it a little kick. If Sneak do give this to everyone to try as thier "best foot forward", I can see why. My better half compared it to the American sweets called NERD'S, so if that point of reference helps you, then so be it.

 

 

3. Blue Raspberry

image_2022-09-09_182737166.png.f2018fe5a5a47d10089f345ceb2158c0.png

 

This is the one I got in the form of the tub, so obviously this was the one I wanted to like the most. I didn't end up being my favourite, but I still really liked this one. The first thought that came to mind when I opened the tub was;

 

smells_like_blue_futurama.gif.4cf1c67de3555c1475fdb60a057d1de1.gif

 

And that kind of set the tone really, it tasted like, well, blue. Still a nice balance of refreshing and sweet, but a little more sour than the others, but not to the point it's unpleasant. Perhaps it would be kinder to say it had more of a kick than the others. Not my favourite, but still very good and still refreshing. The best bit though is my better half didn't care for it. Apparently the raspberry flavour is not strong enough for her liking, so I at least have this one all to myself. Maybe she's right and the raspberry part was weak, but the blue held up nicely.

 

Final Verdict 9/10

 

Overall, very pleasantly surprised. The drinks make you alert, the caffeine certainly works, but was also very refreshing, especially compared to the other every drinks I've tried that are usually either very flat of very bitter and dry you out, it also help hold off hunger for a period of time but be ready for a full meal. Value is to be found in the package, but it's still difficult to recommend to people who don't drink this sort of stuff on a regular basis with the high install price. I was essentially given this, and in that capacity, I love it, I really do and would defend it to the hills, but would I buy it, with money, probably not, but only because I don't drink this stuff regularly. Having said that, this still has a very real chance to convert me as the reason I don't drink this stuff regularly is because most energy taste like salty urine to me. The fact that not only do I like Sneak energy, but actually loved some of these flavours is a testament to how good this is (minus the one that was pinched because I only got to taste it once). Yes, it's not cheap, especially in the beginning with the shaker being an essential buy and how much the tubs cost, but there is value in this is you do drink this kind of thing even on a semi-frequent basis. So yeah, you do need to be prepared to drink Sneak regularly and loyally to get the best out of it, but if you do you won't be sorry.

The site says about 10 minutes, and the effects last 45 minutes. I'd say that's about right.

Monster Energy typically has 86mg per serving, G-Fuel has 140-50g per serving, and Red Bull... it depends on the size of the can. So Sneak's fairly high up, but it's within a healthy adult's recommended daily allowance of 300g.

Is Sneak truly 100% sugar free?

I was about to say 'yes' and leave it there but on the Blue Raspberry tub's nutrition table it does say "Carbohydrates, of which sugars: per 300ml serving, 0.5g," so it does contain some sugar. Good question, glad you asked that as it has me do my due dilligence.

Regarding carbonatation and fizziness, there isn't any. It's completely flat. As for speed of consumption it depends on the flavour and how much water you add; the more you dilute it, the easier it is to chug, as mentioned in my review.

Not that I can tell, it only smells like it in the packet. Thankfully it doesn't taste like raw sewage, again it only smells like it when added to water. It's just a very sour flavour.

I've heard of Sneak Energy but have never got around to trying it. I'm glad to see it being promoted here on VGR and thank you for the outstanding reviews @Shagger and @Withywarlock. What really draws me to Sneak is the variety of flavors and the exquisite bottle designs, packaging, and labels. Sleek and clean look, well marketed.

I might have to pick up a few packs of this Sneak Energy drink. I've never been one for energy drinks before, but as of late my sleep schedule has been blown up and I've been having trouble keeping focussed on my work. Due to that I've thought about trying some energy drinks. But, I don't think I want to try something like Red Bull or the various other brands on the market that are full of sugar and other additives and junk. 

So this topic kinda came at the right moment for me, as I've been on the lookout for a while now, and everything I've seen up to now, has been mostly unhealthy junk with tons of ingredients I've never even heard of. But Sneak sounds a lot more appealing in that it's not full of the junk you'd usually see in energy drinks.

I do have some questions. Is this meant for people who want to work out? Or is it just an energy drink alternative? I'm not much for fitness these days, so I probably won't be working out much while using this, but is it safe to use if you're not working out all the time?

I kind of touched on this in my review, but I wouldn't recommend Sneak as an aid to dieting nor exercise as I think the crash factor is a bit high. I will say I think one can drink Sneak as part of a healthy diet and exercise regime, but in the end it is just an energy drink. It's marketed to people sitting on thier ass playing video games for a reason.

As far as I can tell, yes. This is an image of the nutritional information on the back of one of the sachets.

It really is meant for gaming, and only the mental side rather than any physical benefits. It gave me more drive when I had it at the gym, but it's the weakest pre-workout programme you could possibly take besides water. Even so, water is the best energy drink you could have because it gives consistent performance increase, rather than the ups-and-downs of energy drinks loaded with sugar and caffiene, and is the most hydrating substance on the planet.

SNEAK gives me fewer jitters than other energy drinks, but clean drinking water, moderate exercise and a balanced diet are far more useful (energy drinks are typically recommended as a supplement to those, not a replacement). Failing that, it's an alternative to the amount of energy drinks out there loaded with sugar and glucose.

As safe as drinking up to (but not exceeding) 300g of caffiene each day is from other sources such as tea, coffee or other energy drinks, the usual disclaimers applying to pregnant women and persons sensitive to caffiene.

If you've any doubts, stick to water. The marketing goes out of its way to sell itself.

There are artificial sweeteners, yes. Too many in my opinion; the ingredients and colours are natural, and taste fine, but the sweeteners can make or break the flavour. I recommend drinking them with 700ml of water rather than the 300-400ml they recommend.

I wouldn't recommend energy drinks for fatigue, I only suggest them for a short-term boost. Exercise, a balanced diet, practicing safe sleep hygiene and plenty of fluids are what I recommend where possible. SNEAK, or indeed any other energy drink, is a supplement, not a replacement, to those things. I get it can be hard to achieve all of that for reasons outside of your control but energy drinks are not a viable long-term answer, sugar-reduced or not.

Just placed an order. I've been looking for an energy drink that gives me a boost and is relatively healthy (little to no sugar and additives) and SNEAK seems to hit the mark. The variety of flowers is also quite impressive.

Yayyyy,

It looks tasty , does it have a figgity feeling like a mountain dew or anything? Or a heavy crash? Can it be used before a workout or is it just meant for gaming?

 

Also do they have any caffeine free versions we can just sip on to hydrate after a run or when we first wake up as a meal replacement?

Would love lower caffeinated versions as well since caffeine absolutely makes me wired 😄

Not really, but some flavours do have a chalky after-feeling, which then requires you drink more to wash it away. Surprisingly I've not noticed that feeling much with this batch compared to when SNEAK first came out.

Nope, no crash but then I am used to energy drinks and brown sodas. I'm completely desensitised to the effects of caffiene and sugar, and because this stuff isn't hugely available in local shops, its marketing will be geared towards people looking for it such as those already consuming energy drinks.

It can be used before a workout but that's not its purpose. It gave me enough of a buzz to push on a little further in terms of mental motivation, but it's not going to promote muscle growth any more than a cup of coffee or a multivitamin will. It's purely meant and marketed towards people who play video games, and it's supposed to last 45 minutes thereabouts.

Nope. I wish they did a caffiene free version because as I said in my review its greatest strength, bordering on its only strength, is adding some nice flavours to water. But if I'm only allowed two a day and it means I keep rushing to the toilet because of it, I'd rather just stick to plain water and drink them when I'm not busy... like playing a video game.

I'd like a decaff version just because the flavour is vastly better than its energetic properties, but I suppose you can always dilute one sachet by pouring it into 700ml of water or more if you've got a bigger bottle.

Thanks for the awesome reply ^.^,

Haha I miss those days when I could smash sodas and energy drinks like they were water >.< now I strictly drink juice , tea, or the random coffee but hey at least I get really high off of anything with caffeine.

I think its really cool to partner with such a brand being this type of community, could def give some no lifing players that extra mmphh to finish out some content.

I'll check into the website some more, I hope to see a video review of it soon!
