5 Hour Energy

As a Mom of 4 kids, I am constantly looking for a pick-me-up during the day. I am generally the first one up in the morning and the last one in bed and every waking minute is filled with non-stop craziness. I am usually really energetic in the mornings but shortly after lunch I am ready to CRASH!  I find it so hard to keep moving after lunch, especially if I am trying to work on the computer. My eyes get heavy and I could just go to sleep!!!  I was recently sent a case of 5-Hour Energy to try out and I was really excited when it came.  I have heard awesome things about 5-Hour Energy and I knew I was going to have to fight my husband for it because he is an avid 5-Hour Energy drinker!! He works 12 hour shifts and he loves to grab one of these on his way to work so he can have one about halfway through his shift to keep him moving and alert.

We received  a case of the Berry flavored 5-Hour Energy drinks. I like these drinks because you don't have to consume large amounts to feel the affects. I can drink half of a shot which is .965 oz. and I immediately feel more alert. My husband downs the whole thing which is still a very small amount comparable to other energy drinks where you have to consume 12 ounces or more. They did not make me feel jittery and I was able to keep moving for the rest of the afternoon until I was ready to go to bed. 

5-Hour Energy is packed with B Vitamins, amino acids and other nutrients that are already in you. It contains zero sugar, zero herbal stimulants and only four calories. It contains as much caffeine as a cup of the leading premium coffee. 

I thought it would be fun to order a couple of cases this year to give to my hubby for Christmas! Maybe I just might stuff his stocking full of it! 


One lucky winner is going to win their own 6-pack of 5-Hour Energy!
