5 Hour Energy Yummification with $25 Visa Gift Card #Giveaway

The 5-hour ENERGY® samples, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by the makers of 5-hour ENERGY®.

On any given day I hit a wall at about 2pm. I want nothing more than a hot shower and a nap. But with 2 small kids, homeschooling, and everything else we have going on, the nap doesn’t happen. So I tend to look for other ways to wake me up a little. A cup of coffee, a can of soda, or sometimes a sweet snack.

But my favorite pick me up is an energy drink. It gives me the boost I need to get through the rest of the day. 5 Hour Energy is a great way to give me the energy to get through the day.


  • 5-hour ENERGY® shots are dietary supplements that provide hours of energy and alertness
  • Contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients
  • Helps people feel alert and energized for hours
  • Zero sugar, zero carbs, zero herbal stimulants and only 4 calories!
  • Caffeine in a 5-hour ENERGY® shot is comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee

And while I love everything that 5-hour ENERGY has to offer, even the makers of it realize that the flavor can be a little strong. So they have come up with a Yummification Contest where they are asking users of 5-hour ENERGY to come up with a new way to mix up their energy shot with an everyday beverage.
