Vitamin Water 10: My New Weapon of Choice

Vitamin Water 10 EnergyI was more-or-less dependent on Vitamin Water Energy for the entirety of my first semester at RPI. As the second semester began, however, Energy’s guarana-derived caffeine began having less and less of an effect on me. This was not good for productivity!

Luckily, the folks at Glaceau, Coca-Cola, and Truvia have come up with a new solution!

I first discovered Vitamin Water 10 when flying home for spring break from Albany. Vitamin Water 10 is “naturally” sweetened with Truvia, a stevia based product derived from some exotic South/Central American plant. The result is amazing! Energy 10 has a much stronger flavor than the old Energy. It tastes like it has 10x more sugar. This Truvia stuff is pretty good. Not only does it taste better, but each serving is reduced to 10 calories from 50.

The Truvia sweetened Vitamin Water seems to have an even stronger kick than the old fructose based stuff. Once again, I’m able to stay up for hours on end, creating awkward sleep cycles.

Thanks to Glaceau, Coca-Cola, and Truvia for enabling my bad sleeping habits!

    Now is the thought here that the new drink will more sustainably provide the energy you require? As I see it, there will come a point where some people may become so reliant on caffeine, sugar, etc… and not just the “normal” doses by today’s standards…. 10 years from now I fear that people will be relying on someone so strong a multi-step program will be required to quit drinking the stuff.

    This comes from someone who drinks an average of 1 Coca Cola a day and doesn’t use water as a source of vitamins or energy.

    This is probably true. I didn’t drink soda of any sort until I was 15. Mt. Dew was my first introduction to caffeine, and it hooked me despite its foul taste. As consumption of Mt. Dew increased due to dependence, I realized I really hated the stuff. I found the alternative: Vitamin Water. The 40oz of Vitamin Water a day that I currently consume delivers far more caffeine than the 12 or 24 oz of Mt. Dew, and things will probably only get worse!

    Oh, and as a disclaimer, I view Vitamin Water as neither water nor a source of vitamins. I view it as a tasty caffeine delivery mechanism.

    This sounds disgusting and wholly unappealing…nonetheless, I am compelled by the appeal of staying up for hours, increasing my productivity, and doing all of this without ingesting a single bit of coffee or tea, much like a friend of mine who goes to BU…but with more water and less pharmaceutical drugs…
