January 05, 2021

Some days, your body’s gas tank just seems to be running on empty. You find it tough to focus, and once the yawning starts it feels like a never-ending cycle. 

No, stop that! No yawning now. 

It feels like no matter what you try—a cup of coffee, a pinch on your arm or even patting your face with the palms of your hands—you just can’t seem to perk back up. 

Put down the sugary foods and reach for these energy-packed drinks and snacks to get your head back in the game. These unstoppable energy drink and snack combos will keep you fueled up to get through the day at work, a tough workout, a night ahead with friends, an all-night gaming sesh or whatever else you need the energy to power through. 

1. Red Bull and Ghost Pepper Almonds & Tart Cherry

When that afternoon slump hits and you need something to wake you up, reach for this sour and fiery combo. The semi-sour taste of Red Bull paired with the heat of Blue Diamond Fiery Ghost Pepper Almonds will get you fired up to conquer your afternoon.

2. Yerba Maté and Veggie Snacks

This is the combo to reach for when your energy reserves are running low at work. 

If traditional energy drinks aren’t your thing, yerba maté might be your cup of tea. Packed with caffeine, yerba maté is a nourishing and energizing drink that comes from the leaves of a tree found in South American rainforests. Even better news: It may even be linked to better digestion and weight loss

Opt for a lightly salted veggie snack, packed with fiber, to keep you feeling full and focused as you get through the day (or night).
