5-Hour ENERGY review and giveaway

5 hour energyI am not a morning person. Since having our baby, I’ve had to be a morning person, which isn’t always easy if I’ve been up several times during the night with him. I’ve drank coffee, but I don’t really like the taste, and I’ve had other energy drinks, that help wake me up and give me energy to get through the day.

I received a pack of 5-Hour ENERGY® Berry Flavor to try. I typically drink a different sugar free energy drink, as I like the taste and they do the trick for me, with no jitters. I wanted to see if 5-Hour ENERGY® gave me the same energy for the same amount of time, without jitters.

The first time I tried it, I had been up twice during the night with Jax, so I was a walking zombie. I got halfway through the bottle before having to stop and regroup to finish the bottle. It is not a HORRIBLE taste, but I also found it very strong and not enjoyable. Once I had drank the bottle I continued through my day. I did notice within about 30 minutes my energy levels had increased and I was more awake. It wore off me within about 3 hours though. I didn’t feel jittery at all, or feel any other side effects, like a crash after it wore off. My husband feels like he gets a better effect with 5-Hour ENERGY® than with the other drink, and doesn’t mind chugging it and being done with it.

Overall, I think I’ll stick with my other energy drink. I like the flavor, and I like being able to drink it over time, and not have to chug a product. I also think the effect in my other energy drink lasts longer. The other deciding factor is that it is less expensive than the 5-Hour ENERGY®.

Now that I have tried 5-Hour ENERGY®, I will probably buy it in the future to have some on hand if needed, and I know what it is like now, in case I need a pick me up and it is the only thing available. I’ll probably keep a few bottles on hand for my husband as well.  Some people I know LOVE the stuff, so I was glad to be able to try it out and share my experience with it.

5-Hour ENERGY® has been kind enough to offer a 6pack of their Berry Flavor for one of my readers to win! This giveaway is open to U.S. Residents 18 and older only! Enter the Rafflecopter below!

  2. I did use energy drinks once, but my body would get used to them and I’d have to have more and more to feel the effects. I like to use them because I jog and when I take one about 15 minutes before I start jogging it helps me to keep it up.

  3. I drink them occasionally when I need some extra energy, I do not drink them all the time but when I feel like I need one I don’t have any objections to drinking one

  4. I do drink energy drinks and coffee because i have 3 children under 6 and a 3rd shift job. I need them CONSTANTLY! Thank you for the chance!!

  5. I do on occasion. Mostly on those really tough days when it feels like you have miles left to go and no energy to do it with. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I try not to drink energy drinks too often but when I do have them its usually to help me get through a long day.
