Minute Maid, a subsidiary of the Coco Cola Company, has announced it will be launching “Minute Maid Enhanced” juices next year in single serving sizes. Specifically, the Strawberry Kiwi Flavored Juice Drink will combine fruit juices with yerba mate, a plant native to South America that contains caffeine. This product will be promoted as a “delicious natural energy boost.” Caffeine’s effect is like whipping a tired horse. You get a little more speed, but at the expense of a let down that demands more stimulant.
PositiveTip: Choose to get adequate rest and physical activity, and you can skip the caffeine.
