I am not even going to try to pretend that I wasn’t completely skeptical about this energy drink when I was asked to review it for my blog. To be completely honest, I have never tried and energy drink before and tend to think they are a bunch of who-ha. Actually, I am also a bit afraid of them cause I don’t ever want to be on some Red Bull rampage cleaning off my sofa with a vacuum while my little dog stares on in horror (movie reference anyone?).
In the interest of full disclosure, you should know that I pretty much nap every afternoon. I try desperately not to , but if I sit down for even a second during naptime/quiettime, I am out. That after lunch slump just hits me hard. It came as no surprise to me when my mom told me I was still taking a daily afternoon nap when it was time to head to Kindergarten. Me likey the sleepy.
So I decided to drink my Cranergy at lunchtime to see how it would affect my afternoon slump. I was amazed. I had so much energy all afternoon. And no ugly crash come 5 pm. While talking to my daily afternoon phone buddy, she even remarked that I “didn’t sound like normal 2:30 Jill.” Which is usually when she calls and wakes me up from my slumber.
Here is why I am a fan. This doesn’t taste like high fructose laden, sugary, syrup juice. It tastes more likely lightly flavored water. I also like that it is low calorie, 35 per 8 ounces to be exact. And my absolute favorite part? No weird caffeine substances. They use natural energizers like green tea extract and vitamin B. I love that cause I really try and avoid caffiene. I don’t like what it makes me feel like.
Cranergy comes in two great flavors: Cranergy Cranberry Lift and Cranergy Raspberry Cranberry Lift. Yummy and is it possible you can get energy and clear up that bladder infection at the same time. Not sure, but that would make a stellar ad campaign. And it is now officially safe to call the Diaper Diaries household between the hours of 1 and 2:30 pm and I might remember what you said. Who knows what kind of world domination I can achieve with that extra hour and a half a day?
