I am a chef and have great appreciation for quality foods and beverages. Working the long hours I do, I used to drink a lot of coffee and espresso just to survive. After 20 years of that I decided to stop. Coffee made me jittery and crash at the end of the day. It was not good for me. I've been looking for an alternative when i stumbled upon Marquis.
When I received the package and opened it, I was first struck by the vibrant green color of the packaging. It was beautiful which made me even more excited! In opening the box and trying their contents. I placed all three flavors in the refrigerator to cool and couldn't hardly wait to taste them.
After tasting them, berry was my favorite, followed by yuzu, then mango. What was outstanding about the experience, were the fully natural flavors that came through as soon as it hit my mouth! Lightly sweet and effervescent. Very refreshing and chuggable, if that's a word.
The other part is the energy. It felt natural and rolled in gradually, if that makes sense. As opposed to coffee or espresso if you slam enough really fast, you would bounce off the walls. It is definitely not compatible but a legit natural alternative.
I love the assorted 6-pack from Marquis. It was the perfect way to find my favorite flavor (Super Berry).
