What’s uP: A Love Letter to Emergen-C

5 08 2009


Dear Emergen-C:

I know we’ve only known each other for a year but I’d like to take a moment to profess my undying love for you and your magical powers.

I remember the first time I saw you: on the shelf at Bikram Yoga NYC. I wasn’t impressed and wrote you off as just another culty yoga product. In fact it wasn’t until last summer, after a cookout gone wild, that I opened myself up to you. I was laying completely immobilized on my friend Eric’s couch, watching the Muppet Show on DVD, hoping for any sign of normal body stasis, when my friend brought me a tumbler of phosphorescent orange goodness. Within 20 minutes I was completely brought back to life. And from that moment on, our relationship blossomed.

How much do I love thee, Emergen-C? Let me count the ways:

  •  Although I’m partial to Super Orange, you have enough flavors for every palate
  • Your 25 calories and 5g sugar respect all dietary needs
  • You kick Gatorade’s ass right back to the locker room in terms of electrolyte replenishment
  • Next to toilet paper and paper towels, you are the only thing I buy in bulk
  • You are not only a guaranteed hangover prevention (taken before bed) but a next-day massacre relief (if forgotten to take before bed)
  • Your abundance of B vitamins reduces my stress level while providing me with a healthy afternoon boost
  • Since I’ve found you, I haven’t had a single cold this year
  • You are delicious

Don’t worry, Emergen-C, I know you have many imitators invented by school teachers and so on, but you’re the only one for me. Here’s to another healthy, happy year together!
