Review: Verve Energy Drink

August 18, 2013

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.

Verve_001

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)

If you are interested in buying Verve head on over to Briar Tately’s Page.
Briar Tately is one introduced to me Verve and I couldn’t be happier!

    Oh wow. That’s pretty cool! Dude, I smell new drinks too. I also have a weird thing about drinking and leaving a drink. I won’t pick it up again after it leaves my sight. Yeah, I’m strange haha.

    Well, anywhoo – I’m not a huge energy drink drinker (wait, is that a “thing” or do you guys have a title?), but the hubby is! I will have to tell him about Verve. It’s definitely got some great selling points! Plus, you liked it! Awesome.

    My Husband has sleep apnea so he doesn’t have a lot of energy during the day. He has tried so many different energy drinks … some good, some ok and some really bad. I am going to have him read your review and see what he thinks. http://www.myjourneywithcandida.com/

    I am not a big energy drink person because they usually seem to have an aftertaste. These sound interesting though. I will have to try one. Thanks for sharing.

      I agree with some of them having a after taste. But man, these were like carbonated orange juice if that even makes sense!! LOL Be sure to check out Briar Tately’s Page, I got mine through her!

      Haha it’s good to know I am not the only one who sniffs! I agree. It does suck they are not in the store!! But I you can order them by a case which I believe is 24.

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard of this brand of energy drink. I stay away from them because every time I’ve drank them, different brands, I get sick literally!

      Oh wow! Then yes, Stay Away!! Hahaha. I never heard of them until I was contacted about them! But I don’t want you to get sick!!!

    I’ve never heard of this brand, but it’s probably because you can’t get them in stores LOL. If I ever come across someone selling one, I will pick one up for my husband, He works 12 hours days most of the time and drinks these when he gets that middle of the afternoon tired feeling.

    Never heard of this brand too. Sounds like a good booster for the one who likes to do lots of workouts and exercise.

    Hmm, your review makes them sound great but I am very much like you. I would have to sniff and sip first. I have not ever had an energy drink so I would probably have to really think first before trying.

      I can totally understand that! Only reason I am raving about them is because they are a healthier version.

    My husband drinks lots of energy drinks since he works nights and has to stay awake during work. I will definitely tell him to try this one out. Maybe he will like it better than the brand he usually drinks.

    I have never had an energy drink before, but this one sounds yummy. I always assume they will be super sweet like pop without bubbles. OJ I like :).
