A while back, I posted about the 5 hour ENERGY Yummification Contest, and I shared a recipe for 5 hour Lemonade.

Other people around the country also shared their 5 hour ENERGY recipes and entered them in the Yummification Contest.  The results are in!

Here’s the list of winners:

First Place ($50,000 prize): “Pomelimelade” by Tim Merlau, Los Angeles, CA.  This winning submission mixes a Pomegranate 5-hour ENERGY® shot with limeade, and then takes us on a musical journey through all that can be accomplished over several hours (spoiler alert: it’s a lot).

Second Place ($30,000 prize): “Ramalamadingdong” by Mark Golembeski, Los Angeles, CA.  The second place video helps us turn that 2:30 feeling frown upside down by mixing a 5-hour ENERGY® shot with lemonade. This video has it all: a clown, a puppy, a guy in a tutu, and much more.

Third Place ($10,000 prize): “Arnold Power” by Zac Sheorn, Lugoff, SC.  The third place winner reminds us that you don’t have to be good at sports, but mixing a Pink Lemonade 5-hour ENERGY® shot with decaffeinated iced tea helps keep you refreshed while practicing. And practicing.

Are you a busy mom?  A working mom?  A blogging mom?  All 3?  If you are, I’m sure you’ve struggled from time to time, to get everything done.  I personally have a number of snacks that I enjoy to help keep me going, but when I need a quick pick me up in the form of a drink, I like 5-hour ENERGY® Shots.

This graphic shows just a few of the things that are keeping me busy this year:

getting it all done

Apart from keeping up my blog and Etsy shop, I have the cooking and cleaning to do, plus taking care of my husband, stepson, and baby cats.  Plus, this fall my stepson will be starting high school, marching band, and other activities!  Without a doubt, I’ll need all the extra energy I can get!

 5-hour ENERGY® shots fits perfectly in to my lifestyle.  I like the  ingredients and I also like it for the convenient serving size.  As someone who generally drinks any kid of beverage slowly, I really like the energy shot because I can actually drink it quickly (unlike other drinks which are 8 or even 16 ounces).

 Why should you choose 5-hour ENERGY® shots over other drinks and supplements?

  • 5-hour ENERGY® shots are a dietary supplement that contains a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients.
  • There’s zero sugar, carbs, or herbal stimulants.
  • Is four calories.
  • Contain caffeine comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee.
