NOCCO experienced a very successful global launch of Limon Del Sol last year and has upped the stakes this summer by adding another excitingly vibrant and delicious flavour to their increasing range – the Limited Edition Blood Orange Del Sol, with a fresh taste of sweet and tangy blood orange.
They have drawn their inspiration from picturesque and warm Mediterranean beaches, warm evenings and mesmerising sunsets. Like the rest of NOCCO’s BCAA range, it contains BCAAs (3000mg), caffeine, six various vitamins and is entirely sugar-free. NOCCO – The No Carbs Company – have designed an fabulous array of ready-to-drink, grab-and-go, BCAA and CAFFEINE-infused sugarfree drinks, ready to sustain and fuel your workout! This means you can drink these guilt free, as they contain no calories whatsoever. Perfect if you’re trying to cut down on your milky coffees or big cans of M******* (editor’s note – brand name removed) or trying to reduce your calorie consumption.
Super-hydrating, super-refreshing and SUPER tasty, the Blood Orange Del Sol reminds me of a sweet Fanta like orange and my recommendation is for it to be served ICE cold!! Packed FULL of BCAAs, containing no carbs and no sugar but an impressive 180mg of workout-fuelling, WOD-crushing caffeine!!
Many people are discouraged from drinking energy drinks due to the contents being mainly caffeine BUT, NOCCO contains 6 different vitamins – from Vitamin B3 to Vitamin D!! – plus L-carnitine AND green tea!! So NOCCO has plenty of benefits plus the much needed caffeine hit for more energy!! As with everything you consume there is too much of a good thing. However with Nocco drinks it is no more unhealthy than a coffee or another equivalent carbonated drink.
Nocco might actually be slightly healthier for you as there ate no carbs and calories. You may need to take caution with your caffeine consumption however, you usually have more potency of caffeine if you save your drinks for big workouts (you also save money too!).
NOCCO is available in a whole host of awesome flavours and I’m definitely excited about trying their other flavours! The range is already extensive including flavours such as Ice Soda, Passion, Red Berry, Pear, Peach and there is PLENTY more to choose from!! In a super convenient 330ml can, this is ‘grab and go’ at its best!!
Whether before or after your workout or you simply need a little pick-me-up grab a cheeky can of NOCCO, recover muscles and replenish vitamins as-well as boosting energy levels! I swim almost every day and this little boost has given me the get up and go I need for every session! Bursting with crisp, zingy classic orange flavour, Orange Del Sol transports our tastebuds to those sun-drenched sandy shores and azure blue seas we’re all craving about now so I would recommend this for all adults who enjoy some form of exercise, and even those who don’t!
