Jason's Review

Hello again, this is Jason with Screaming Energy dot com. Bazi is a new "healthy" 2oz. energy shot containing 8 "superfruits", 12 vitamins and trace minerals, but I'm not sure which temporarily stains the skin Oompa-Loompa orange. I have no idea if I'm pronouncing "Bazi" correctly, could be pronounced Bayzi or Bazzi, truth-be-told, I don't care. The bottle says, "Shake well", but I think, "Shake like an angry nanny" would be more appropriate. Shaking gently results in metallic-gold tie-dye patterns floating in a copperish-orange fluid.

Bazi smells and tastes like something you would expect to discharge from a Juice Tiger. Of the 8 superfruits, I was aware of the existence of 5: pomegranate, blueberry, acai, raspberry and goji berry. Goji Berry is what I assumed gave Stephen Seagal's Lightning Bolt energy drinks that distinct 'molasses and dishwater' flavor. Bazi also contains Jujube, Mangosteen and Seabuckthorn, which, to me, sound like made up names of herbs used in high level World of Warcraft troll rep reward alchemy recipes.

Bazi's website touts their "safe levels" of B12, meanwhile, we couldn't find a single symptom for a B12 overdose, and in fact, the only B12 overdose information we found was related to the inactive ingredients in the supplement. Excess B12 is simply expelled from the body like tiny balloons of narcotics in a South American airport detaining room.

Fruits should contain calories. After all, calories fuel your body. I don't know why other energy shots take them out and shove in a boat load of chemical sweeties. Bazi has 64 calories and 16g of carbohydrates, which I applaud. Their website says it has less than 20 calories per serving. Aside from this bold-faced lie, the comparison chart leaves me feeling like they're promoting Steaz. Three times the caffeine, no artificial sweeteners and made in the USA? Where can I get some?

With only 80mg of caffeine, I should have a constant splitting headache, like Kate Gosselin's agent. Surprisingly, Bazi keeps me awake and alert on what I would consider the absolute minimum caffeine dosage. If you're sensitive to caffeine, or your physician has recommended you keep your intake to a minimum, you may want to consider Bazi.

Concerning the taste, others here at screaming energy have reported immediately liking the taste. It took me drinking exactly three to begin enjoying Bazi, and at least some of that can be attributed to under-shaking.

These normally go for $3/each (comparable to 5-hour energy), their website periodically runs specials, for which we receive information half way through the promotion. It is nice that you can buy a "healthy energy drink" directly from their website, without being involved in a multi-level marketing scheme, so when you buy Bazi, you don't have to pester your friends about joining, buying starter kits, motivational CDs and windbreakers.

Guests's Review

Bazi is another 2oz. energy shot, what the maker hope stand it apart from the mass of competitor products is its healthy properties. It does contain lots of fruit extracts and juices, it doesn't taste chemical, and they hit on a new angle with "trace minerals".

The plastic leak-proof wrap and inside pull-off seal ensure the product arrives at the customer without leaks or gunky lid threads. The sleek and simple design are marketable enough. In my opinion, the "Phyto8" isn't branding at all, it's just empty text on the cap. If you're pushing Phyto8, just name the product "Phyto8".

This product, as of the time of this review, is the only product for sale on the Bazi website, in several different quantity offerings. I think there and health/nutrition stores will be its most successful venues. Most people interested in products like Bazi pay for gas with a credit card at the pump, and rarely actually enter a gas station. I'd guess many 5-hour energy drinkers grabbed their first one while buying a pack of cigarettes, or while paying for a 2/$1 hot dog special. These people not predisposed to care about "superfruits", "Phyto8 blends" or "hidden caffeine sources". As a result, I don't see gas stations being a successful retail outlet for Bazi Energy Shots.

Is 8000% of B12 overkill, sure, but is 50% underkill in the consumer's mind? I'd like to see all the B Vitamins bumped up to at least 100%. Speaking of needing to be bumped up, 80mg of caffeine? Bazi performs exceptionally well for the tiny amount of caffeine it contains. I think it would be far more effective with 120mg, but health-conscious consumers may sneer at putting a 6oz. cup of coffee's worth of caffeine in an energy shot.

One up-side to less caffeine is a more pleasant taste. Since caffeine is bitter, masking 200mg of caffeine, like Player Aid or Upshot Fruit is a much more daunting task. I enjoy the taste of Bazi, though I'll admit it's a "different" taste. It's pleasant, has an enjoyable aftertaste that doesn't linger too long and doesn't taste like you emptied a diabetic's cupboard into it.

The retail price is too high for me, but may not be for their target market.

Bazi Energy Shot can or bottle design and textual information
Bazi Energy Shot comes in a red bottle that looks nearly the same dimensions as the Red Bull Energy Shot bottle. All the text on the bottle is in white. On the front, vertically oriented, is the word "Bazi", above that, "Healthy Fuel For Mind and Body", and below, "Energy Shot". In tiny text, "8 Superfruits plus 12 vitamins plus trace mineral blend". Also moderately hard to read, "Jujube plus Goji plus Pomegranate plus Blueberry plus Mangosteen plus Raspberry plus Seabuckthorn". The top of the bottle repeats the text about superfruits, vitamins and trace minerals, below that, "PHYTO8 ENERGY", whatever that is.

On the back, "Shake Well plus Best Served Chilled", under that, "Reject if safety seal is broken". Lastly, "Recommended Use: Drink Bazi anytime of the day, before or after exercise, or strenuous activity to help support your body's natural energy system. Refrigerate after opening".

I saw a lot about Bazi on youtube. I've had it on two occassions, and I think it was reformulated. The original Bazi came in a bottle that was more contoured, if I remember correctly. It tasted like expired rat poison. The one that seems to be reviewed here I've also had. This is an accurate review to me, the taste of this formula is much better, and the ingredients do make me feel like Bazi is better for my health than many other products.

Not only is Bazi the best energy shot ever, but it is so nutritional for you. You get the best of both.

I use Bazi before I run and I love it. I can tell in my running when it starts to kick in. I enjoy the taste, now that I am use to it.
Teresa@2011-01-26 15:14:09
Bazi tastes like a flinstone vitamin. You only take 1 - 2oz at a time so you are not having to drink 8 or 12 oz in a sitting. No shakes, and you feel more alert, focused and energized. I highly recommend Bazi.

BAZI is the best energy drink I've ever had. It gives me my daily vitamins and a much needed energy boost. Oh yeah - no crash!
