As much as I love Christmas it’s a really hectic time of year. Somehow I get through it by permanently running on empty, present buying, wrapping, those extra work commitments, social engagements, activities for the children to make it as perfect as it can be! By the end of it I’m a mess. That was more evident than ever this year when I contracted flu the day after Boxing Day. It meant the rest of the Christmas holiday was a complete wash out from my perspective! Thankfully I have a few more days off and a getaway next week with some girlfriends. Otherwise I would have felt well and truly cheated.

But that doesn’t solve the problem that combine the festive period and the flu had left me floored. I am shattered. I have a long list of things which I wanted to do on my break from work which hasn’t even been looked at. When I do return to work at the end of next week we enter a really busy period on the run up to tax year end. It will mean longer hours as I make sure my little team hits the ground running and I put us in the best possible position to achieve our goals in the year ahead. Which basically means I need to get those things on my to do list done now or they won’t get done until the Summer! Oh and I would really like to enjoy my time away, have a couple of drinks (to make up for the lack of it over the Christmas season) and enjoy the outdoor adventures we have planned.

So I need tiredness in the nicest possible way to do one. Which is why I was pleased to hear that Berocca is adding a new flavour to its range – Blackcurrant, which launches this month. This is in addition to the original orange flavour, mixed berry, tropical and mango flavours. I have been trying it out over the last couple of days and was super impressed with the colour and the flavour. I would even go as far as saying that its probably my new favourite!

Berocca is my go to for fighting tiredness. For when I need to be at the top of my game. Because it’s packed full of eight B vitamins including B1 and B2 which work with my body to release its natural energy.  Each fizzy tablet is also brimming with B5 which is scientifically proven to support my mental performance. As well as B12 which is helps to combat tiredness and fatigue.

I am excited to see all that 2018 will bring, we have some wonderful getaways planned as we continue our habit of going away once a month. With Kipper getting older our days out have been transformed to running around after a toddler. Which has also seemed to give Monkey a new lease of life too. Parenting is hard work, but so rewarding, I want to grab each opportunity with both hands. By taking Berocca I know I will  have enough energy to deal with whatever adventures may lay ahead for us this year. Happy 2018 everyone x

  3. Jeanette Leighton

    Would be interesting to see if this actually works

  4. I’ve not tried Berocca before. I mat give it a try.

  5. Sheila Reeves

    I love the sound of the new blackcurrant flavour as I found the orange one too acidic tasting to me – hope the work wasn’t too bad going back after being ill

  6. Sian Buckingham

    Gosh, think I could do with some of this at the moment! Might just have to try it!

  12. Laura Lee

    I think I should try something like this. I tried taking addiitonal Vit B and C but ended up with chronic migraines so had to stop, but something like this might be worth a try. Thanks for the guidance 🙂

  13. Chris Bull

    It reminds me of sunday mornings at Petticoat Lane market. Always had a hot Sarsaparilla in the winter months, this sounds a much healthier alternative and actually have some extra health benefits 🙂

  20. Tracy Nixon

    Great review thanks – must give it a try!

  21. Lorna Ledger

    Hope you are feeling better now? Horrible being ill when you still have to hold it all together! I read a magazine article that said Berocca was one of the greatest beauty buys you can get, because of what it does for you inside! x

  22. Musings of a tired mummy...zzz...

    Blackcurrant Berocca sounds fab (it’s one of my favourite flavours so will look out for it!) #bloggerclubuk

    I have also voted XX


  31. I have seen this stuff before and wondered if I should try as my energy can get so low perhaps because I drive myself too hard on occasion but I think coming up to the menopause is also playing its part. Popping by via Blogger Club UK

  32. I will try this- I need to take extra b vitamins year round and the pills taste vile. Like dry blood almost… Berocca sounds perfect. #bloggerclubuk

  33. Becky @ Educating Roversi

    I always associate Berocca with hangovers! I didn’t know they did other flavours apart from Orange, let alone a new blackcurrent one! With a newborn and a 3.5yo, maybe I need a Berocca or two a day! #BloggerClubUK

  34. Hi, I haven’t had Berocca for a while, it does you that you The lift that you need sometimes. I’m liking th e idea of the new black currant flavour.

  35. Sara @ Magical Mama Blog

    I’m sorry you weren’t well through the holidays! My one year old got sick the day after Christmas and passed it on to the whole family, including visitors. This sounds like a great idea to get back into the swing of things!

  36. A friend recommended Berocca years ago and I never got round to trying it. Thanks for the nudge. Blackcurrant sounds good after overindulging on rich food..

  37. The Rhyming Mum

    I really need to try this! I hope you’re feeling better #bloggerclubUK

  38. Fiona Cambouropoulos

    I need any help for fighting tiredness! #BloggerClubUK

  39. Oh I need this so much right now – I’ve been hit with all kinds of illnesses that are prevalent at this time of year. I’ll have to pick some up when I next go shopping 🙂 #BloggerClubUK

  40. I have Berocca in the cupboard and always mean to have a glass every day but I ALWAYS forget. I really should try harder, my Sister swears by it! #BloggerClubUK

  41. Mum OverRun. Sarah Aslett

    This sounds like a much nicer than flavour than their standard orange one! Hope you are feeling much better! #BloggerClubUK

  42. The Pramshed

    So sorry to hear that you were ill over Christmas, I also picked up a heavy cold/flu on Boxing Day too, and felt awful. I ended up spending the rest of Christmas in bed and worrying about all the things that I need to be doing. Blackcurrent Berocca sounds amazing, and so much better than the orange flavour. I’ll definitely be trying that. Claire x #BloggerClubUK

  43. Checka Grantham

    Oh thanks for the tips. I’m suffering with lack of sleep, 1 due to perforated ear drum and wisdom tooth removal. 2 dealing with an autistic daughter who doesn’t like sleep. Going to grab myself some today, and hopefully feel half human x

  44. Maria | passion fruit, paws and peonies

    I’ll have to tell my husband – he loves the orange ones! x

  45. MotherAlmostNeverKnowsBest

    Look at that colour! Looks delicious… #bloggerclubuk

  46. Ooh I take Barocca so I shall check out this flavour. Thanks. #bloggerclubuk

  47. Heather Keet

    These flavors look delicious, I need more vitamins in my life according to the doctor! #BloggerClubUK

  48. Ren Taylor

    Would love to try this! Have tried the tropical (mango) berocca but love blackcurrent

  49. Annabel Greaves

    It looks like a great thing to keep healthy

  50. sharon stanley

    I have only tried the orange one. It definitley gave me a boost though without making my heart race as other products promissing the same thing have done. Looks like blackcurrent flavour will be on my shopping list tomorrow 🙂


    looks great for this time of year, i never eat right over xmas and then all the bugs descend from school in january!

  52. I’d prefer to take this than just taking vitamins and plain water. When I’m running around getting everything ready in the morning this sounds like a pick me up.

  53. Ah, I love the fact that there’s a different flavour, little bit more refreshing, no? Happy New Year! x

  54. I’ve not thought about using Berocca before. I am sitting here writing this battling to keep my eyes open after a hectic christmas and going back to work last week. I am truly exhausted!

  55. All about a Mummy

    Husband swears by Berocca. I’m so busy at the moment I need to start taking it because I have no time to be ill!!!

  56. Zena's Suitcase

    I do like blackcurrant flavour and I have used Berroca for a boost in the past. I agree that January is a good time to stock up again

  57. Fashion and Style Police

    I would love to try this. I am still running on empty kind of. Great review.

  58. Margaret Gallagher

    Certainly need a boost my energy levels are zapped

  59. Rhian Westbury

    Wow blackcurrant berocca, I don’t know if I’d rather this over the original flavouring. Hope you’re feeling better now x

  60. I like the idea of the Blackcurrant flavour. I was actually about to look for a supplement that has B12 in so this is well timed.

  61. Debbie Nicholas

    Oh gosh I have seriously over indulged do this sounds ideal for me. I’m constantly run down too so will def pick some up!

  62. Melanie williams

    I have never thought of Berocca for a boost. I may well have to give this a go. I need it after all the festive over indulgence 🙂 x

  63. I do love a Berocca such a fantastic pick me up and definitely much needed after Christmas!
