Advocare Spark Energy Drink Review

advocare spark energy drink mixAdvocare Spark Energy Drink Mix is a popular energy supplement sold by independent Advocare distributors.

I happened to discover this drink in a strange way…….

Have you ever been to an electronics store and found a great deal on men’s cologne?

No?  Well how about a two-for-one deal at a car lot, have you seen one?  I wish.

What about a farmer’s market?  Ever been to one and found an incredible energy drink product you’ve never seen before?  No?  Well nah nah in your face I have!

This summer I took a trip to the local farmer’s market with my mom, my greatest excitement being the possibility of finding a flawless eggplant to complete my cornucopia crafting project.  Sarcasm.

Anywho, I walked by a table where a nice lady was selling Advocare performance products.

This table just reeked of multi-level marketing, but I couldn’t resist inquiring about the “Spark” energy drink powder packets.

Without even telling the saleswoman about my status as an energy drink reviewer, she grabbed a bottle of water, filled it with a whole packet of Spark, and let me continue on my way while I drank the bottle down.

Less than 20 minutes later: holy organic cucumbers Batman!

Look here to find out how many packets of Spark it would take to be dangerous!


I later bought three flavors of my own Spark packets: grape, fruit punch, and mandarin orange.  They also offer citrus and cherry.  All you need is a cold bottle of water,  one of these packets mixed into it, and it will plaster a smile onto your lethargic face.

The experience was better than I could have even expected, especially after E-Boost set my standards so low.  Not one stage of the show can be categorized as bitter, transparent, overly sweet, or overly tart.  Delish!


spark-canister/begin list/ 120mg caffeine, 750% B12, 750% B6, 300% niacin, GABA /end list/

Quite small compared to the 17 active ingredients in Optimind Energy Supplement.


No matter how you consume a packet of Spark, whether it be straight, snorted, mixed into your Easy Mac flavor packet, or… oh ya mixed into water, you are guaranteed the perfect long-lasting energy boost.

No joking around here, these packets are simply the perfect pick me up.  This will be my first product review where I end up purchasing more of what I sampled.


Advocare Spark changed my energy drink life.  I can now truthfully say that given the immediate availability of a Spark packet, I would choose a bottle of water from a cooler instead a stand-by favorite energy drink.  That’s right, a flavored bottle of water over, say, a NOS or Rockstar Punched Citrus.

Up until Spark, that’d just be crazy talk.

    my curiosity is peaked. any chances it’s in a store or am i going to have to start crashing farmers markets to find these suckers? (keep in mind i’m wary of ordering product online without having at least a sample of it first)

  • Evan

    lol Great review. Now I want to try this so bad.

  • Dusty

    Glad you guys like the review 🙂

    Problem with this product is that it’s not sold in stores. As I hinted at in the post, there’s a bit of multi-level marketing fun going on with the company. Ordinary citizens must first buy Advocare products before they can then sell them. So, to get some you must become an Advocare salesperson and buy product in bulk, or find someone who already has done so.

    Maybe you can get lucky with their “contact a distributor” feature on the website?

  • Adam

    You can order right from the website and they sell it in canisters too! Mix up a gallon and take it to your friend’s kid’s birthday party, sit back and watch the fun!
    Seriously though, looks like they sell some kind of shot too.

  • Dusty

    Yep, the have a shot called Slam. I have one but haven’t tried it yet

  • DiscipleN2k

    I like the way you think, Adam!

  • Gilly

    Adam = genius

  • I am a distributor for the company. I personally use the Advocare products and have seen great results. I have a lot more energy and have lost 40lbs since Memorial Day.

    I too was wary about ordering, but taking on the products was probably the best thing I have done in awhile. The company is based in Texas and was founded in 1993. I attended their event “Success School” this summer and the company is truly amazing.

    As for the products, they really work. True, you have to get them through a distributor and if you do not know one, there is a find a distributor link on Advocares site.

    A friend turned me onto Spark about 3 years ago. As a wedding photographer I like having energy on wedding day.

    I was drinking redbull , Nos or 5 Hour energy. At $2.50 or more a serving it adds up.

    Spark is closest to 5 hour energy, you are more alert. The main thing is it is less than half the price when purchased in the tub.

  • Nathan Riedel

    It does work wonders. My wife turned me onto it and I have successfully kicked my coffee and soda addiction. And along the way have shedded about 5 pounds by not putting the cream, sugar and fructose syrup in my body!

  • If anyone want to taste spark send me an email, i will have an order placed for you and you can feel this energized to.

  • Agree with many of the comments. I love the products including Spark, and have lost weight and lots of points on my cholesterol!

  • My wife and I just had twins and there is not another drink I would rather have around the house than Spark and Slam. We initially signed up just for the 40% discount and now have a great business on our hands. I’d be happy to help anyone get started. Great article by the way!!

    Our football team uses this before key games and we’ve never lost with it.

  • spark does not compare to the flavor, ingredients, and results as XS energy drinks do that are sold through Amway Global

  • Vada Miller

    A friend gave me some spark to try because I have a four yr old, three yr old, and 19 mo old twins! ALL BOYS! So Of course I am exhausted, spark really helps me keep up with my little monkeys! I love it!

  • john

    To any of you have become Advocare distributors, have you been able to build a residual income with this company or do you just sell products as a retail business?

  • Jamie

    Hey john, What I did was set up retail accounts in some of the local business in my area. It was actually very easy, the products come with a 100% guarantee so I
    told them if they can’t sell it send it back! It is working out very well for me. As for the residual part of it, that takes time. If you want to get some more info, check out my website, if thats not enough info for you, shoot me and email at Good luck to you!

  • Hi there, anybody looking for more of the products, i can help…I’ve been a personal trainer and fitness pro for 7 years and have used these products with all of my clients, i can say as a fitness professional that spark is great, but the other products are powerfull lifechanging products, me and my colleuges in the fit and wellness industry have seen it over and over again with our client base for the last 4 years… the products just plain work, and they are the only ones that are banned substance free, truly… i would be happy to answer any questions regarding nutrition and the supplements as they pertain to your health and fitness goals… feel free to ask… email me at
