If you want energy and can put up with awful tasting energy supplements, Venom Bite, could be a viable choice for you. It is not one for me. The sickening cough medicine-esque flavor had me gagging right after tasting it. It does not smell bad, it smells like old-fashioned Coke syrup.

Even still, to test its energy-giving powers, I had a few more nausea inducing sips, then poured it down the sink and threw the bottle in the recycling bin.

I found that soon after, I felt more energetic and alert, even though I did not drink the whole bottle. I would say I had 1/3 to 1/2 of it. I will see how long it lasts and whether I crash or not.

The bottle I tried is 3 fl. oz (90 mL). It is described as an energy supplement on the packaging. There are 50 calories, 10 grams of total carbohydrates and 9 sugars in the entire bottle. There are the following vitamins, all in 200% daily value concentration: Riboflavin (3.4 mg), Niacin (40 mg), Vitamin B6 (4 mg) and Vitamin B12 (12 mcg). There is Ginseng Extract (2.4 mg) and an energy blend of: Taurine, L-Carnitine, Caffeine, Guarana, Inositol, Glucuronolactone and Maltodextrin (In a concentration of 4563 mg).

There is a warning on the side that says that is highly potent. The user should not have more than 3 bottles a day. It is not recommended for children, nursing or pregnant women, or people who are sensitive to caffeine.
