Rapper slash actor Curtis 50 cent Jackson and GNC have come together with a new energy shot called SK, or Street King. Promising 6 hours of fresh energy and a meal in the belly of a hungry child, I definitely felt up to supporting the cause. So I put down the lofty $36 for 12 of these 2 ounce flavor shots, I decided it was for a good cause. Plus, I was thirsty. Plus, I was tired.
The first decision I had to make was to go with Orange Mango or with Grape. Tough choice, and since I run the foremost website on the internet dealing in energy shots, I took the hit and got both flavors. $72. It is for the children, I justified. The children.
As for flavor, both are tolerable, neither one being either extra good or extra bad. Thankfully, my taste buds survived this taste test. Either that or they are totally shot from the other nasty ones I have put my buds up against. I failed to taste the mango in the orange mango flavor however. Grape tasted like grape.
Luckily for all of us that are addicted to these things, they have 0 calories and therefore can be sucked down at will if you are on a diet. That is not recommended, and I have yet to find an energy shot that I want to sip on like it's a fountain drink.
Does Street King energy shot pack a punch? Boy does it . . . sort of. With its all natural ingredients, and caffeine and B vitamins being the typical precursors to an energy assault, it is a decent energy shot, but nothing special. I know it has come to the fact that I am a broken record, but this is an industry that is hard to make anything better without adding in substances that are not legal and/or bad for you.
You'll feel the onset pretty quick since you are getting a load of caffeine in liquid form. Absorbed straight to the stomach and the blood stream, I recommend this on an empty stomach for full effects. The SK 464 milligram "Rebel Energy Blend" which is basically a bunch of caffeine and filler is what you will feel. There is definitely a bunch of caffeine in this sucker.

So does it work. Yes. Is it AMAZING. No. Is it worth $3. Possibly.
Seeing as it does work, is on par in the price department as other energy shots ($3), and for every purchase a child gets a meal from United Nations World Food Programme. So, caffeine junkies do your part this Christmas and help someone in need and still get what you need.
