I am not a huge energy drink kinda girl. I do like my Red Bulls but it’s not something I have all the time!
Well, I was contacted on Instagram about this energy drink called Verve.
When it comes to trying new foods and drinks i’m a bit hesitant. I haven’t always had the greatest experience with this.
I didn’t do a lot of re-search on this drink before hand because I really like to form my own opinion without any influence.
When I got the drinks, I opened up the package and I was rather impressed with the design. It’s simple and a bit funky. I really love the color orange they used. It’s stands out! The fonts are pretty basic which I love because I prefer things simple.
As I said, I was a bit hesitant about trying something knew so I can’t even tell you how many times I sniffed the cans before actually taking a sip!
Yes, you read that correctly… I sniffed my drink.. Don’t hate!
The drinks have a very powering smell to them! Not a bad one, Just very powering!
I started off with small sips, ya know, making sure it wasn’t so disgusting that i would puke! LMAO!!
Once I let the first few sips settle I went in for the big gulp!
The taste was what I thought it would be after sniffing it a few times!! =P
At first, I get Oranges…. but it’s not over powering… It’s like Orange Juice without so much acid. But then, I got the taste of Pineapple. So it becomes this amazing blend of Oranges and Pineapple (at least to my taste buds). I am not a nutritionist or anything like that but these little drinks seem to have enough vitamins and minerals in them to give you a extra boost in the AM. I really enjoyed these babies!
In the Bold version there is Vitamin A coming in at 50%, but holy wowzers… Vitamin C at 500%, and Vitamin D3 & E are over 175%. You also have Vitamin B6 and b12at 250% and then. You also have Biotin in at 100%
Okay, are you ready for the crappy part? You can’t just walk into a store and by these. I know right? WTF? LOL
However…. You can buy them from someone who sells them. I will admit it kinda sucks not being able to just run into your favorite store and grab on off the shelf but there are so many advantages to this process.
Everyday we walk into stores to buy our clothes, shoes, grocery’s, and household items. Often times, these are big companies, the kind with CEO’s and shit. We often forget about the little guys, the old school mom and pop shops, the ones who weren’t greedy enough to need 100’s of stores. We need to help support the people who wake up everyday striving to be better then the day before and not the people who just want to make their pockets bigger!!
With Verve, you are able to help the person you buy from. Yes, you are still helping the actual company, but you are helping a single person by buying the product from them. It may not be much, but it’s the thought, the time that counts. We help pay employees who work at these bigger companies but it’s great to help the smaller companies and the individuals in my opinion!!
Seriously though… I love this shit!! Plain and simple… Love! LOL
(Hey, I never said I wasn’t going to have a potty mouth)
