Energy drinks are no bastion of health. Sugar, artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners and tons of caffeine make them a bad choice! But when we saw Ocean Spray’s Cran-Energy Sparkling drinks, we thought it could be different.
Alas, yet another energy drink fails the label checking test.
If you’re on a diet, stay away from diet energy drinks! Go old school and grab a cup of coffee or tea.
Why choose coffee & tea for energy?
- Both coffee & tea have ZERO calories – can’t beat that for dieters!
- Sweeten with what you like – adding your own sugar will result in using less sweetener than the manufacturer might add.
- Both coffee & tea (when brewed fresh) have antioxidants.
- Save money – both coffee & tea cost less per cup than an energy drink.
- Save the environment – less packaging = less waste.
