YUNO BioTactical Botanical Drinks Taste Test [Review]

yuno biotactical botanical wellness drink review

YUNO BioTactical Drinks are advertised as a quick boost to help you get through various parts of your day. Whether you need an energy boost in the morning, a pick-me-up after lunch, or a subtle way to relax after a long day. YUNO has a formula for every aspect of your life.

YUNO Biotactical Drinks are personalized neuro enhancements that not only provide you with immediate results, but they are specially designed to help support a healthy immune system.

Increase your Energy, Focus, Memory, Motivation, Zen, and more through six unique blends.

In anticipation of their Indiegogo launching today, the folks at YUNO sent me over a sample of each of the different flavors/formulas, for me to try out…

And that’s exactly what I did.

All Natural Ingredients

If you’ve read any of the posts of done, or watched any of the videos I’ve made, for this site, then you know that my main factor when rating anything, whether it’s food or drinks, is taste.

So the fact that YUNO BioTactical Drinks claim to help boost your energy, or help you relax, etc., is not what I was attempting to prove here. And when you think about it, no matter what the drinks claim to do, it may not always work the same on everyone.

One of the outstanding features of YUNO is that they are made from all natural ingredients, gluten free, vegan, and free from the big eight common food allergens. So the goal is to help boost you throughout the day using natural methods and ingredients.

Now, I’m not a “clean eater” by any sense of the imagination. I eat fast food, and I love it, I enjoy sugary snacks, I love gluten and meat… Basically I only shy away from things I know cause me discomfort, like onions, garlic and raw tomatoes (which I found out through an elimination diet known as the Low FODMAP diet).

So the fact that these “boosts” were deemed as all natural isn’t really a selling point for me personally, but I’m not the demographic. So if you’re into healthy living and clean eating, and you’re looking for something to help give you that little extra boost throughout the day, then YUNO BioTactical Drinks may be a better option that energy drinks.

YUNO Taste Test

Ok, now let’s dive into what everyone is wondering about… the taste.

When I first received the package and opened it, I was super impressed with the packaging design and the packages themselves.

They remind me a lot of the squeeze pouches my kids eat apple sauce out of, but with a more “adult” feel and more modern design. And I’ll admit, I thought the product itself was going to have the consistency like one of those apple sauce pouches, or more like those energy gels you slurp down when running a marathon or a race.

It definitely is not… at least the 2 flavors I tried aren’t.

The consistency is basically spices mixed with water. It’s not thick. And that kind of hit me as a surprise when I first opened the Energy pouch.

I figured I’d start the taste test with the Energy flavor since it was right after lunch and I figured if I got a boost of energy it would push me through that early afternoon slump.

Upon opening the pouch I was immediately taken aback by how strong the cayenne pepper smell was, I already knew this wasn’t going to be great, but I took the sip anyways.

Just as expected, the cayenne pepper hits you like a ton of bricks up front and was way too spicy for me. I couldn’t even take another sip it was so spicy. There is nothing sweet about this drink.

Maybe if it’s mixed into a fruit smoothie or something it might taste a little better, but I can’t see how anyone could just drink the entire pouch on its own. It was too much.

After being scared to try another one, I figured I owed it to the company to at least take a sip of a different flavor to see how it was, so I decided to try the BLANK flavor.

The package said that it would be sweeter in general, and the ingredients seemed like they would make the packet taste less spicy and more sweet… which it did. I still wouldn’t say it tasted “good” by any means, but it was much better than a mouthful of watery cayenne pepper. I still don’t think I could finish an entire pouch of it though. And it was at that point that I decided these things just weren’t for me.

As I said, I don’t think I’m the demographic, but these weren’t anything like I was expecting (although I’m not sure what I was expecting because I didn’t really know anything about them before they reached out).

So the bottom line is, if you’re a health-nut and you’re looking for something to give you a bit of a boost during the day or help your sleep at night, these might be a nice, all-natural, alternative to energy drinks or melatonin  pills. Give them a try and see what you think… my taste buds are definitely not the same as everyone else, and I can’t handle spiciness like a lot of people can, so these might actually taste pretty good to you.

You can check out their Indiegogo campaign here and get in on some early-bird deals while they still last.
