Viva Golazo!

I have to say from the outset that I am WAY past due in getting this post up, and I have to apologize to my friends at Golazo for the delay.

With that said, you're probably wondering "what the heck is Golazo?"  Founded in 2010 by Richard Tait and Alex Rosenast, Golazo is a Seattle Washington based  soccer-passionate brand of all-natural energy and sports drinks with a Latino influence.  The term Golazo is spanish for a "super or beautiful goal." According to the Urban Dictionary, Golazo is a Spanish term "referring to an awesomely amazing goal." Inspired by the growing enthusiasm for soccer, the Latino influence in the sport and a quest for natural products, Richard and Alex saw an opportunity to serve a unique need.  They observed that kids were mixing Red Bull and Gatorade to get something energizing and hydrating, so they set out to create a beverage with the energy of Red Bull with as much hydration as Gatorade from all-natural ingredients.  Their tagline, "Born to Score," embodies their philosophy around human potential and the confidence that soccer can bring to people's lives.  The company's mission - "We Fuel Futbol."

I was fortunate enough to be able to sample their line of energy drinks.  These drinks are not available locally where I live, so I wrote to Golazo expressing my interest in the product and a desire to sample and write a review.  They were kind enough to send me a sample of each of their energy drinks.
