Fizzing Up With Emergen-C and a GIVEAWAY

 

I am participating in a sponsored campaign hosted by Emergen-C® I received compensation for this post. While all opinions stated are my own, I make no claims about Emergen-C as a product or its effectiveness.

I recently received a very cool package from Emergen-C.

IMG_3782

I had heard about the product before, but had never taken it. It actually came at the perfect time after the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon when I suffered from major calf cramps and dehydration post run. I was really excited to give these packets a try.

IMG_3783

Emergen-C comes in a lot of different flavors from original Emergen-C, to Emergen-C Immune+®, to Emergen-C Kidz® and more.

I’ve  been having one a day to make it part of my daily vitamin intake. I’ve never really been conscious of the amount of vitamin C I have on a daily basis before, but I know that with the amount of training I do I want to give my body proper immune support. I’m also paying close attention to replenishing my electrolytes on a daily basis. 

There is cane sugar, fructose and stevia leaf extract in them with 5 grams of sugar. I like that they don’t use artificial sugars.

I’ve tried the three flavors they sent me and I’m not sure which one is my favorite. I’ve experimented with them all though.

IMG_3785

It’s just what I do.

These packets make it easy to have on the go, just mixed with water or in a little mocktail.

IMG_3797

I’m feeling good after adding them to my daily routine. I haven’t been dehydrated or felt under the weather (just mentally tired from the whole Kitty thing) and my energy levels are good.

 

These are not very sweet so when mixed with water it’s just a bit fruity and fizzy. I was expecting it to taste a lot sweeter, but I guess it doesn’t because of the minimal sugars added (which is a good thing).

I’m never one to just mix things with water so I’ll show you three of my favorite ways to drink them.

IMG_3798

Cranberry-Pomegranate Sweet Tart Fizz

one packet of Cranberry-Pomegranate Emergen-C

4-6 ounces of water

tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (optional)

 

 

I like mixing the Super Orange flavor with some tea for a little afternoon energy enhancement.  Here’s my favorite combination so far.

IMG_3813IMG_3815

Boosting Orange Tea

8-12 ounces iced tea

one packet of Super Orange Emergen-C

tablespoon apple cider vinegar (optional)

(I brew my tea and then pour over ice before adding the water and the packet.

IMG_3814

 

Now this next one might just be my favorite. I mean, how can it not be with both coffee and chocolate in it, right? It’s a little different because of the fizz, but still fun. I guess raspberry and chocolate are always fun together though.

IMG_3811

Chocolate Raspberry Mocha

one packet Raspberry Emergen-C

8-12 ounces milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond milk)

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

frozen coffee cubes or 2-3 teaspoons instant coffee

 

Here’s how this went down.

I combined the Raspberry packet with the milk and cocoa powder and used the Nutribullet to blend it.

IMG_3801IMG_3803

Then I poured it over my coffee cubes.

IMG_3804

That’s it.

They have a lot of other fun recipes on their website here. They have one for orange muffins that I’m so going to make for the family. Obviously I’ll have to make them one of my green varieties. Ha.

I also just saw this recipe for Emergen-C Guacamole. Now that’s just brilliant. 

 

Emergen-C would like to give one luck reader a three-month supply of supplement packets and an Emergen-C water bottle.

    I love Emergen-C. I’ve been buying it for years. My favorite is the Cranberry-Pomegranite and I also like raspberry. Those are my go-to flavors. I think there is also a lime one, that’s pretty good too!

  21. 21

    They all sound delicious. I think my favorite try would be the orange with the tea. I teach full time and last year got sick quite a bit. These would be great to have to boost my immune system.

    Beth M. says:

    I was really interested to read this post, because I have only used Emergen-C once and was curious to see read about how you used the product on a daily basis–I only use immune-boosters when I’m already starting to feel run down in hopes it will help ward off whatever I might be coming down with. I’ve had the orange flavor, mixed in water, but the raspberry sounds fun. I love how you created these fun drinks!

After taking Emergen-C, my colds came at one time a year intervals or LESS!! Love this product and just like you, cannot choose a favorite. Although, I vote for the mandarin and blueberry-acai.

    Marsha says:

    I like the berry flavor. Works when I feel like I am starting to get sick. Mix with water and chug it. It does have a somewhat “strong” chalky-like flavor though in plain water?!

  55. 55
    Robyn says:

    Cranberry pomegranate sounds good. I take zinc/vitamin C lozenges if I feel a cold coming on. This looks like it would be similar, but with less zinc.

    Deb E says:

    I like the raspberry and think it would taste great with any of the flavored vinegars and coffees I should be receiving in the mail soon. I seem to win a lot of teas and coffees as giveaways but I enter them frequently so makes sense. One coffee flavor is blueberry muffin so raspberry and blueberry muffin sounds great!

  67. 67
    Stacey Niedzwiecki says:

    My favorite flavor is the Super Orange. Any time I’m not quite feeling 100% in the morning, I take one and it helps me get through my day. I’m definitely gonna have to try it in fresh brewed iced tea.

  87. 87
    Erin Duffy says:

    I love emergen-c when I feel a cold coming on. BUT I especially love to add it to vodka…the b-vitamins prevent a hangover the next day (or that is my theory anyway) :-)

    Oooh, the cranberry pomegrante sounds yummy. I’ve never had these before so it would be fun to try it.

  89. 89
    Kara says:

    I have tried many of the Emergen-C flavors and by far the best is tangerine (in my opinion)! I’ve never even thought to mix the packets with anything except water – my mind is blown- and I can’t wait to try some of your awesome combinations or experiment with my own!

    Michelle P. says:

    Cool giveaway! :) I have a son with a degenerative neuromuscular disorder and we’re currently going through all sorts of supplements to help with electrolyte balance (helps with the severe leg cramps he gets). Problem is, if it isn’t loaded with sugar/chemicals then it tastes nasty. This would be awesome to try. So yeah, that’s what we would do. Water first and then we’d starting trying it out in smoothies. My kids love orange, so that would go first! :)
