I got the great opportunity to review a couple of drinks for the company FRS.
869
First let me tell you a little bit about how the products work thanks to their website and then I’ll tell you about my taste test!

ABOUT:
All FRS® products feature quercetin, a powerful all-natural antioxidant found in foods such as blueberries, red apples and grapes. It has been shown in multiple clinical trials to provide sustained energy, increased endurance, immune system support along with many other health benefits.

What is QUERCETIN:
Instead of using lots of caffeine and sugar to give your body a lift, FRS activates your body’s own energy-producing mechanisms for sustained energy without fear of crashing.

Quercetin acts in the body as a “super fuel” that mimics the effects of exercise by enhancing the production of the body’s mitochondria, the energy-producing units in cells.  Traditionally, exercise training has been the only practical way to increase the amount of mitochondria in cells.

The company breaks their drinks into 4 different sections!
Energy, Protein, Weight Management and Immunity!

Energy: They have different forms of this it can come in drinks, chews, shots, powder etc.

I got to try the chews. They weren’t the tastiest but I think they gave me somewhat of a kick which is what they are made for. With the powder I’m not a fan of flavored water so Eric is going to have to try them!
cherry limeade berry
They have three bottle flavors in this group. I got two of them in my pack of 6: Wild Berry and Cherry Limeade.

Next is their group for Protein:
Each bottle has 25 grams of premium whey protein isolate
Dietary fiber to feel full longer and promote digestive health
orange cream blackberry acai
They have two drinks in this group: Blackberri Acai and Orange Cream.

For Healthy Slim they have chews and drinks.
These drinks are supposed to curb your appetite to help weight loss.
strawberry melon tropical
The drinks I got to try was Strawberry Melon and Tropical.

For Immunity they have drinks.
Healthy Defense Bottles promote the body’s immune system and general wellness on a daily basis.
I didn’t get to try them but they have Citrus Pomegranate and Pomegranate Blueberry.

My mom and I decided to have a taste testing session to try them all for taste.
878 879
The first thing I noticed was that they were all this yellow color which I thought was a little weird.
cup
There were some that we thought were really yummy and others not so much. I think drinks like this are very important to taste good haha. Maybe that is just me though!
This is the scoreboard we came up with.
FRS TASTE TEST
My scores were the ones to the left or the ones on top my moms the ones on the right or the bottom. As you can see my favorite was Orange Cream which actually surprised me a lot because I hate Orange Creamsicles but this was really tasty! My mom had two 10′s Berry and Orange Cream!

I can’t wait to finish them and see if I really feel any energy or if I’m not as hungry, etc. (:

Questions: Have you tried these? What is your favorite drink?

I have tried these! I actually just had the strawberry melon and really liked it. I actually didn’t mind the taste of the chews!

Great review! Orange Creamsicles are one of my favorite desserts! I am sure I would like that one. I have never tried these but will be on the look out for them!

Interesting that neither of you liked the Cherry Limeade much and both loved the Creamsicle. They all sound good to me and I do like flavored waters that are not too sweet or loaded with sugars and sugar subs. What a mom you have that she joined you in the taste test. Go moms! (Can you tell I am a mom?)

I’ve never tried, or heck even heard of these! They sound amazing though.

I haven’t tried the drinks, but I’ve tried the chews. It’s not a noticeable energy boost, but it def helps me concentrate and power through long boring treadmill runs
