Break That Soda Addiction With #Spark

spark mountain dew

Do you have a soda addiction that you need to suppress?  In the past, I have been a huge Diet Mountain Dew fan.  Every morning around 5:30 a.m., I would grab a can from the fridge as soon as I woke up.  If I didn’t have my Diet Mountain Dew before 1 p.m., I would get a very bad headache.  I have been told over and over by the girls at the gym, that I could shed a few more pounds if I could cut back on the amount of Diet Mountain Dews that I was drinking.  This sounded easy for them to say, but I didn’t want to battle the headaches and basically I enjoyed drinking them.  At least I was drinking the diet version and not the full strength Mountain Dews.  It could be worse, right?

I learned about Spark Energy drinks and was given the challenge of using them to beat my Diet Mountain Dew addiction.  As a product reviewer, you know I couldn’t pass this opportunity by.  I was told to drink a Spark drink as soon as I woke up and another one around 2 to 3 pm when my Diet Mountain Dew craving set in.  I really didn’t see this working since I “needed” my Diet Mountain Dew, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try.  Guess what, it worked!  I couldn’t believe that this great tasting flavored drink could stop my Diet Mountain Dew cravings.  It couldn’t take away the thoughts of enjoying one, but it took away any thoughts that I had about “needing” one.

Spark comes in individual packets or in a tub with a scoop inside.  Just add it to your water bottle, shake it up and drink this vitamin and amino acid supplement.  It comes in the following flavors:  Pink lemonade, Watermelon, Mango Strawberry, Mandarin Orange, Grape, Fruit Punch, Citrus and Cherry.  The Fruit Punch is a safe flavor to start out with.  It tastes just like regular koolaid Fruit Punch.  My husband loves this one, and he can be very particular sometimes…LOL

I slowly worked myself back to drinking one Diet Mountain Dew  a day and now drink one as a treat if I am in the mood for one.  Drinking Spark twice a day has been a great move for me.  The Diet Mountain Dews always tasted good, but the Spark drinks are full of vitamins and are much better for me.  I also needed to increase the amount of water that I was drinking, but since I always chose Diet Mountain Dew as my drink of choice, that never happened.  Now that I have that under control, I mix up flavored waters for the remainder of my daily drinks.

Do you need to add more water into your family’s day as well?  Mixing flavored waters and placing them in the fridge will make it much easier for your family to grab one and go.  My 13 year old son looks forward to his Tropical Punch and Blue Raspberry drinks now and I can’t seem to keep enough of them in the fridge for him.  I am so glad to hear him asking for more flavored water rather than hearing about running low on his favorite sodas.

  1. Those sound good. I don’t really have a soda addiction but have a coffee addiction, I know what you mean about the headaches, that happens to me if I skip the coffee.

    I also could use some energy & more water! Will have to check these out 🙂

  2. I have an addiction to coke. It used to be diet pepsi but after seven years of being nauseated, throwing up, and not being able to get out of my own way – I discovered that the artificial sweetener was poisoning me. Now I touch nothing with artificial sweeteners (drink or food)…thus the coke addiction. My story is on my site if you’d ever care to read it. And, did you know that if one has a seizure disorder those artificial sweeteners can aggravate it? Happened to my son. Ya, now Momma cringes at the thought of them…they really are bad for us. Glad to hear you’ve gotten that Dew down to one – that’s a HUGE, and not so easy, accomplishment!

  3. I would love to be able to get a sample of this to make sure it does not affect me adversely. Unfortunately so many things do. And I could certainly use some help-not with soda (I do not drink it) but with coffee!!

  4. I think a water-based drink full of vitamins, that tastes good too, is awesome to have in the house with kids! And hurrah to you for breaking your Diet Mt. Dew addiction. 🙂 I’m working on limiting coffee because over the past couple of years I’ve gotten pretty carried away with drinking it. Maybe Spark will help, I’m not adverse to trying.

  5. I don’t have a soda addiction problem. My husband does. Its the first thing he goes for. I can’t really say much cuz the first thing I go for is coffee, but I can definitely try to get one more glass of water in each day. These are definitely great tips because my husband just hates plain water, so if I can mix some water like drinks for him, that might help him immensely!

  6. i need this. i am addicted to coke and even if i tried to stay on juice, my cravings for coke is uncontrollable, i want to try this spark. Thanks for sharing

  7. I am trying *SO* hard to break the soda addiction right now. Soda really hurts my stomach but withdrawals are almost as bad..

    1. Isn’t it sad that we “need” our soda’s so much? It is horrible to run out of them when you know what is coming if you don’t get some at the house that day.

  8. I dnt drink soda, but my friend is mad for soda. He drinks like 3-4 litres of soda everyday :/

    I am surely passing this to him, I hope I can help him get rid of his soda addiction

  9. I’ve got down a lot on my diet soda habit, but not completely. I just like it too much. I did drop the caffeine though so the headache issue is no more. I enjoy drinking flavored waters sometimes too.

    Sounds interesting. My husband loves soda but I don’t drink it much. I wish I could get him to stop drinking it since its not really good for our bodies.

  11. Thank is a great idea to premix the drinks in bottles. My kids love those too. I am going to have to check out Spark! I have a major soda addiction. lol.
