I was given the chance to review several 5-Hour ENERGY® drinks in exchange for this honest review. All opinions are my own!
I have never tried 5-HOUR ENERGY® drinks before and was a bit scared to do it because if I put the wrong thing in me my body has a real nasty effect. Considering I have ADD that added to my concerns!
5-HOUR ENERGY® drinks are actually nothing more than a dietary supplement that provides hours of energy and alertness. It is made up of a combination of B-Vitamins, amino acids and essential nutrients. I only drink 4 calories when I use these little shots. If I have a long day ahead of me, I can space out my drink intake and have up to two of them a day.
However, I went ahead and combined it with my husband’s lemonade. We called it the “Lemony Spurt Drink.”I didn’t think about the fact that his lemonade is made with sugar!! The flavor was perfect, but it made for a very wild 5 hours for me. I DO NOT recommend you do that! I recommend that you make SUGAR FREE lemonade and combine it with the 5-HOUR ENERGY® Lemon-Lime flavor. I will say that once the excess sugar wore off, I was still full of energy to get me through until I was done with some pretty major projects.
I did try the Berry Extra Strength one mixed with my favorite bottled water drink. I have to admit I loved the berry flavored water. It gave me a nice bolt of energy within a few minutes. I love the way it tingled across my tongue like a nice fancy drink does.
