5-hour Energy “Yummification” Contest

One of the problems facing most Americans today: chronic tiredness. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, people are busier than ever. That means less time for sleeping, which leads to slow, sluggish days and tired nights. Problem is, for years, the only way to combat this was with coffee, which many people do not like to drink. Plus, after drinking the coffee, you get a sudden boost of energy, followed by a crash that leaves you more tired than before.
Then along comes 5-hour Energy. I tried these myself when I was driving my family to Omaha (a 1,000 mile trip). If I began getting tired, just to get that extra few miles (read: 100 or so), I would take one of these things and be set. They gave me the boost of energy to keep going, and then comes down gradually, so it just feels like getting tired after a long day, not a large crash.
Problem is, the flavors themselves can be quite strong (personally, I only like the grape flavor straight). But, recently, I discovered the joy of mixing a single 5-hour Energy with any favorite drink. For example, I added Lemon Lime flavor 5-hour Energy to a can of caffeine free cola, and boom! Suddenly, I’m drinking Lemony Zest, a lemon lime flavored, caffeine free cola, and I was able to go on about my day, energized and alert. 5 hour energy is hosting a contest and it was a lot of fun trying out some yummy mixes.
I’ve also tried mixing orange 5-hour Energy with a refreshing glass of iced tea. The result, an orange tea explosion that I’d like to call Orangerific Sweet Tea. It was delicious, and again, gave me energy to spare.
I will be trying other mixtures to see what tastes good. This is a great way to get a burst of energy without resorting to energy drinks, or drinking this straight, if you don’t like the taste. 5-hour Energy will really be a great assist to me in my busy life of working, cooking, and caring for 3 children.
I submitted my “Yummification” video in the contest and here is how you can too!
