Okay – so I have to be 100% real right now, because that’s what I do. I think I have an addiction to AdvoCare’s Spark… jk but really… It’s the bomb.com. Let me tell you some of my positives & negative’s of this product. (My favorite AdvoCare product BTW!)
+ Taste (FREAKING AMAZING! So delicious)
+ Energy (Not an overload, and not an underload. Just right.)
+ Sugar Free
+ 21 Vitamins & Minerals
– Artificial Flavors (Boo for artificial! However, I always say that SOME artificial is okay – just don’t overdo it… so in my books – I will take the artificial flavors in Spark anyway and cut them back in my Greek yogurt or something like that.)
– Carbs (If you are in bikini prep, or a similar prep, you know that every carb counts! So at an original 11 carbs per pouch – (now they make “on-the-go” Spark which is only 4 carbs) – 11 carbs can be A LOT for a drink. If however you aren’t on prep, 11 carbs SHOULD NOT be an issue…
My favorite flavors: Fruit Punch & Grape. (I know Grape sounds gross, but its the best grape flavor I have ever had!) & I also love Pink Lemonade & Watermelon.
Now how do I use Spark exactly? Oh for my 6 am CrossFit class of course! hehe. So I wake up at 5:30 am (I walk to CF, its only 5 minutes away) and I mix together Spark with Arginine Extreme and take two O2 GOLD capsules. – This combo is incredible! It is life!!! Like last week I decided to try CF without these products… And holy crap, what a difference! But I really had to see for myself if they were making the difference or if it was really just a mind-game. My coach even asked me what was up with me.. and told me it was okay that everyone has “hard” days. lol AKA that meant I was not myself… And I wasn’t! Weight I could normally throw around like a tennis ball was HEAVY! It was disastrous. Anyways… back to the topic.
So technically Spark can be taken up to three times a day. HOWEVER, I normally only take it once. And that’s for three reasons: I never really get an energy slump throughout the day where I feel I need it, and the two I listed above as cons. BUTTTTTT, if I do get an energy slump (which has happened once) – I will take a Spark in the afternoon to get back to my normal self.
So why Spark instead of other energy drinks? See for yourself:

I have gotten my boyfriend on Spark because he is a workaholic, I have gotten my dad on Spark because he used to drink a case of Coke Zero day, I have got my mom on Spark because all she would drink was Pepsi (not even water), and I have gotten my coworkers on Spark because they constantly feel depleted from traveling.
This stuff is amazing guys! If you haven’t tried it – DO IT. Like NOW! You will love it!
