One of My Favorites: Energy Bubbles

Every day around 2 or 3pm, I hit a major wall.  And I mean MAJOR.  I need a jump start but there is really not an easy solution.  I cannot have coffee that late in the day or I won't be able to sleep and I am just not a soda drinker so that is out of the question. 

At the SPACE.NK event I was introduced to Energy Bubbles by David Kirsch, an alternative to caffeine for that afternoon pick-me-up.  Each packet consists of yerba mate, taurine, ginseng, potassium, and B vitamins and you simple mix with a 16 oz. bottle of water.  I was a little skeptical when I first tried it but could not believe how well it worked.  It felt like I had just had a big cup of coffee but did not give me the after effects of caffeine and did not keep me up all night.  Exactly what I needed.  I now keep a packet on hand at all times for that afternoon slump.  They are a definite must for anyone who needs a pick-me-up at the end of the day (isn't that all of us??). 


  1. I've never heard of these. Sounds interesting though! I could definitely use a pick me up.

  2. Oooooh, COOOL! I get the same drop, at the same time. I'm definitely going to try some. How's the taste?

  3. I've never heard of these either. Definitely sounds like something I could use. I try to only drink caffeine in the morning and even then I have a limit. While I've read that drinking coffee throughout the day is actually good for you, I just can't do it. If I did, I'd never drink water and getting my days worth of water is way more important to me. (oddly I find water to be just as eye opening and duh, so refreshing)

    So do this have any taste? I'm definitely going to check it out. Who wouldn't want to squeeze in vitamins whenever possible?! :)

    New follower! Happy to have found you.

  4. Becky and Anna, this tastes just like an energy drink. Not amazing, but not bad either. My husband is not a huge fan of the flavor because it is a bit sweet but we cannot argue with the success. And I agree, I love getting a little more vitamins throughout the day!
