With so many different flavors of G Fuel to choose from, how do you know which one’s best?
You’re in the right place to find the answer, or at the very least, get a better idea about which flavors you might like to check out and avoid.
In short, my current favorite G Fuel powder flavor is “Pewdiepie”, inspired by Pewdiepie.
Also, my least favorite flavor of G Fuel is “Faze”.
But there’s quite a bit more to the story than that, so read on for all of the details.

In this article, I’ll give you some idea on a bunch of these flavors so that you can be a little better informed about some of the options and have a better idea of which flavors you might like or dislike.
List of G Fuel Flavors
I’ll present the following flavors in the order that I tried them.
I was most excited to try this one and when I tore open the sachet, the powder smelled really delicious.
Once mixed with icy-cold water, the taste was a little disappointing, but definitely not flat-out bad. I may have just had my expectations a little too high I guess.
I give the flavor a 7/10, but my girlfriend really didn’t like it at all. She said it tasted “too artificial”, and I guess she’s got a point.
I had to give it more of a stir a couple of times while drinking it and no amount of stirring was going to make the last mouthful taste better – that last mouthful was downright bitter and “chalky”.
I recommend not bothering and just pouring the last little bit down the drain to save your tastebuds.
Overall, I think it was a decent flavor, but not “full” enough. It was still watery, even though I didn’t even have the recommended amount of water mixed with it. Maybe it might taste a bit better mixed a little stronger (with less water).
This one didn’t really do it for me to be honest.
The powder smelled like old furniture with candy spilled on it (in my opinion) and once mixed with water it just didn’t excite me. I think it kind of tasted like really artificial lemon, maybe kind of like a flat (non-carbonated) lemonade, but a bit more like medicine.
I didn’t finish the whole thing, I couldn’t do it.
For balance, my girlfriend liked it, she thought it tasted kind of like pineapple / lemon.
I give this one a 4/10.
I wasn’t expecting this to be any good, but was slightly surprised to the upside.
My girlfriend described the taste as “like medicine mixed with root beer”, and I have to say I think that’s a pretty good way to sum it up.
It’s very artificial-tasting, but it also does a pretty good job of capturing the essence of bubble gum.
I give this one a 6.5/10.
Certainly not as bad as I was expecting, but not amazingly awesome.
This flavor has 140mg of caffeine, not 150mg like most other G Fuel flavors.
Black on Blackberry
Another with 140mg of caffeine instead of 150mg.
I liked the sound of this one and the powder smelled delicious before mixing.
I was a bit concerned about the weird array of blue and red colors before mixing properly, which I guess is indicative of lots of artificial things in the mix.
On first taste, I liked this. But after experiencing the aftertaste and going back for a few more sips it started to get a bit worse in my opinion.
It tastes good, sort of like a really strong grape flavor, but the aftertaste is very sugary and the texture in your mouth after swallowing feels very chalky. Perhaps even more so than most other G Fuel flavors.
My girlfriend completely agreed and when I asked her what she’d give it out of ten, she said it’s probably about a 6.
If I look at the scores I’ve given other flavors above, I think I need to give it slightly more than 6 because I think this one is better than the bubble gum flavor.
I’m going to give this one 7/10 and put it right alongside the Strawberry Shortcake flavor.
I like this one a lot.
I didn’t think I would like it and was expecting more of the same super-artificial-tasting fare that G Fuel seems to put out, but this one was a pleasant surprise.
Tasting almost exactly like pineapple juice, but stronger, the aftertaste wasn’t all that noticeable (but there is still a hint of artificial sweetener in there that you can’t seem to avoid with G Fuel), and the texture after swallowing the drink wasn’t as “chalky” as the other flavors of G Fuel that I’ve tried.
My girlfriend gave it a 7/10, but considering the other scores I’ve already dished out for other flavors, I think I need to give this one 8.5/10.
Very good, and I would certainly hit it again.
I think this one grows on you as you have more of it.
The smell of the powder reminded me of some kind of candy that I’ve had before, but I couldn’t figure out exactly which one.
The first taste after mixing with water was really artificial, with a bit of a sour aftertaste. My girlfriend initially hated it, but after a few more sips said “6/10”.
The taste is candy, and we both thought this flavor would appeal to kids more so than adults.
That’s a bit of a shame considering the fact that G Fuel isn’t something that kids should be having, but hey, that’s another story altogether.
I rate this flavor 6.5/10.
It’s not bad, it grows on you, it seems to have less of a “chalky” texture than most other G Fuel flavors, but it’s just too artificial tasting for me to have too much of it.
Pewds (Inspired by PewdiePie)
Did I accidentally save the best for last?
This one is good. I think it’s supposed to simply be red cherries, but it tastes like a combination of cherry and strawberry. If you like red berries, you won’t be disappointed by this one.
No weird artificial aftertaste like many other G Fuel flavors seem to have, this one hits the spot nicely and also doesn’t have that all too common “chalky” texture after you swallow a sip which makes it seem a lot more satisfying and thirst-quenching.
I give this one 9/10, and in my opinion, this is the best flavor that G Fuel has.
Unfortunately, as seems to always be the case with G Fuel, there’s no getting away from the fact that the last couple of mouthfuls are absolutely putrid and best poured down the sink instead of trying to mix it more and drink it.
You can thank me later.
Other G Fuel Flavor Considerations
A couple of things that I don’t like about G Fuel in general are:
- The powder doesn’t mix as well or as easily as some other brands of energy drink powders and requires vigorous shaking
- The final mouthful should usually be avoided and poured down the drain in my opinion because it’s a whole bunch of undissolved powder that tastes horrible and has a disgusting texture
- The vast majority of flavors seem to have a distinct “chalky” aftertaste that makes the whole experience a bit unpleasant and certainly doesn’t feel thirst-quenching
- The flavors tend to all be very artificial tasting (for the most part), which is contradictory to G Fuel’s “healthier alternative” marketing spin. More on that in a moment.
- Shipping takes an eternity if you live outside the US (it took more than a month for my order to arrive)
A couple of things that I do like about G Fuel in general:
- The sachets are easy to open, unlike some other brands
- The amount of caffeine is more sensible (less) than many other brands (the FDA recommends no more than 400mg of caffeine on any given day)
- The price isn’t completely bonkers, even though it’s not the most affordable option, especially when you factor in shipping
- There’s no noticeable crash in the hours that follow
- Battle Juice and Pewds are awesome, try these two first
Is G Fuel really healthier than other energy drinks?
In my opinion?
G Fuel seems to often harp on about how healthy their products are, but in my view, this is just marketing fluff.
Having studied the ingredients of literally hundreds of different energy drinks over a lot of years, I don’t see anything special about G Fuel that sets it apart from any other energy drink.
Also, I don’t think it’s a good idea to refer to any brand of energy drink as “healthy”, because, in my opinion, energy drinks are not health products.
Of course, this is just my opinion and you should do your own research on the matter.
However, there has been a fair amount of research on this topic, and the general consensus is that energy drinks may pose health risks for children and teens.
Having said that, I also don’t think that G Fuel is particularly bad for you and I don’t think that it’s any worse for you than many other brands.
In fact, I’ll go so far as to argue that G Fuel is healthier than the likes of Red Bull and Monster simply because G Fuel is sugar-free while the other brands include a lot of sugar.
However, G Fuel certainly isn’t the only sugar-free energy drink.
Again, in my opinion, G Fuel is no better and isn’t much different from any other brand of sugar-free energy drink.
Do your own research on the ingredients of any brand of energy drink before buying into their marketing propaganda.

Other Ready-To-Drink Energy Drinks Like G Fuel
REIZE Energy Drink (10 out of 10)
In my opinion, the best energy drink, powder or otherwise, is REIZE.
Yes, I think REIZE is even better than the Pewds flavor of G Fuel, and that’s saying something.
With a sensible 50mg of caffeine and a smart blend of taurine, ginseng and B group vitamins, REIZE gives you the perfect energy boost, without the crash.
Perhaps best of all, REIZE is a lot more affordable than G Fuel.
For only around $1 per drink including shipping, you can get REIZE shipped right to your door.
That’s outstanding value for money.
Try REIZE today and I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s the smarter choice.
