Beta-alanine is a natural amino acid that buffers the burning fatigue from high-intensity exercise and significantly increases the amount of work you can do. Beta-alanine also reduces mental stress.* Learn More


Caffeine increases cyclic AMP and is well-known for its research-backed effects boosting energy and metabolism and potentiating other stimulants and fat-loss ingredients.* Learn More


L-tyrosine is a naturally occurring amino acid used by the brain to make stimulatory neurotransmitters that improve memory, mood, focus, libido, coping ability, and sense of well-being. L-tyrosine supplementation leaves people feeling refreshed after training or manual labor by mitigating some of the short-term stress caused by intensive work.*

NOTE: N-acetyl-L-tyrosine is a more water-soluble form of the amino acid L-tyrosine* Spike Shooter®, Spike® Hardcore Energy, and Spike® Double Shot formulas contain N-acetyl-L-tyrosine. Power Drive® powder contains L-tyrosine. Learn More

Bring back the red flavor!!

I’ve been drinking these for more than 10 yrs now. Love them but my main complaint is that you don’t sell the red flavor anymore. Please bring it back .

I really enjoy spike original. I was drinking them before you all had to dial it back. I sure do miss the watermelon and the gold flavors. If you do bring one back though the watermelon is preferred. Thanks for a great energy drink.

Energy 10x anything els

No other energy drink product comes close. An immediate and lasting surge of energy. The most B-vitamins I've ever seen. Full send with this one. Love the blue razz flavor. Seriously, it's high octane rocket fuel.

The Best

The best energy drink hands down. I've tried plenty and I always come back to Spike. Get it!

Best energy

Nothing else compares to this for energy. Stop drinking 2-3 of your "energy" drinks daily... get Spike! Wish they'd bring back watermelon.

Spike is awesome

Spike has great flavors without all the sugar of other energy drinks. It has a lasting quality and one can a day is just enough. With no sugar, there is no 'crash' need to drink multiple cans. There are multiple flavors and sizes, so find the one that fits your lifestyle today. Rock on with Spike!

Watermelon Orange Grape

Spike energy drinks are top tier. Only thing is they need to bring back their top 3 flavors and find a way to get them back in gas stations again! 350 mg of caffeine hits different.

Good item

Tastes great. Many arrived damaged. I was refunded quickly though. Only reason I'm ordering from here is because Amazon can't keep it in stock.
