5-hour ENERGY® “Yummification” Video Contest Winners

You have got to go over to 5-hour Energy and check out some of the recipes that some people came up with while trying to win the Yummification contest! They had to create a recipe using one of the below flavors. I kept racking my brain to get something that would taste good, but I should have listened to my gut feeling telling me it didn't have to be a complex recipe and I was right because the 2 winner's basically used 2 ingredients! That's what you get for trying to over-analyze something to death!
The winning videos and recipes are posted at
·First Place ($50,000 prize): “Pomelimelade” by Tim Merlau, Los Angeles, CA

o   This winning submission mixes a Pomegranate 5-hour ENERGY® shot with limeade, and then takes us on a musical journey through all that can be accomplished over several hours (spoiler alert:  it’s a lot).
o  “Pomelimelade” §  1 glass Limeade §  1 shot of Pomegranate 5-hour ENERGY® 

·Second Place ($30,000 prize): “Ramalamadingdong” by Mark Golembeski, Los Angeles, CA

o   The second place video helps us turn that 2:30 feeling frown upside down by mixing a 5-hour ENERGY® shot with lemonade.  This video has it all: a clown, a puppy, a guy in a tutu, and much more. 

o   “Ramalamadingdong” §  1 glass Lemonade §  1 shot of Berry 5-hour ENERGY® 

-Third Place ($10,000 prize): “Arnold Power” by Zac Sheorn, Lugoff, SC

o   The third place winner reminds us that you don’t have to be good at sports, but mixing a Pink Lemonade 5-hour ENERGY® shot with decaffeinated iced tea helps keep you refreshed while practicing.  And practicing. 

o   “Arnold Power” §  1 glass Decaf Iced Tea §  1 shot of Pink Lemonade 5-hour ENERGY® 
I know down here in the South that Arnold's recipe would have been a big hit because we sure do love our Iced Tea! So, I just may have to try that one for the energy that suddenly leaves me struggling in the afternoons to stay awake!
