Go-Go-Gadget Energy!

Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee sent me a few cans of their elixir and on Wednesday, I was running late and had no time to make coffee, so I innocently grabbed a can of the vanilla flavor.

Little did I know I was opening a can of AMAZING. I literally felt a rush of energy while I drank it. I was seized with the ability to focus and finally tackle my mess of a desk. (After which I incredulously tweeted this.)

Now, let’s get this out of the way right now – this doesn’t taste like your average coffee. No, this has super powers, so it tastes a little less typical Starbucks iced coffee and a little more energy-y. If I’m going to drink an energy drink, you’d better believe I’m picking up one of these over nasty Red Bull (sorry, dude, but you tasted like carbonated lint-covered lollipops. No bueno.)

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’m struggling to keep my head above water when it comes to my new job. (Cliff’s Notes: I work a lot and whine about it.) These little babies really help me get going in the morning and squeeze more into my already-full day. Which is a major WIN.

The only shortcoming I can find is that the cans are labeled as two servings. Ha. Funny, right? Silly Starbucks, don’t you know I love caffeine?

Now, for the fun part: Time to giveaway some prizes!

What’s in it for you?

Um, coffee!

Okay, how about this:

Five (5) STANDARD PRIZE PACKS (valued at $30 each): Stealth Switch™, $5 Starbucks® Card, Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee coupons, Starbucks Doubleshot® Energy+Coffee-branded white board.

That Stealth Switch? It’s this awesome little doohickey that allows you to switch between windows on your computer so you can deftly avoid being caught browsing the internet/blogging/on Facebook/tweeting/stalking your ex-boyfriend/picking up a new outfit. Awesome, right? For more ways to feign productivity at work, check out www.energypluscoffee.com.

What’s in it for me?

There is a prize for the three bloggers who get the most comments. An awesome prize. And I’m not above begging for your comments. I promise. (Or taking photos like this.)
