[Review] ViB: Vacation in a Bottle (Pomegranate Berry)

Vacation in a Bottle, or ViB for short, is the exact opposite of what I usually review on this site. Much like the recently critiqued Drank, ViB is an anti-energy drink — a beverage that induces lax and calm feelings as opposed to bursts of excess energy. While it is true, as you all surely know, that I love caffeine and the awesome stimulating effects, I also purely adore relaxation beverages. They are an awesome invention with an outstanding effect when they work properly.

Straight from the bottle:

ViB’n Be Happy.

Sure, we’d all love to have our toes in the sand right now. But somebody came up with the idea of “9 to 5.” Well, it’s time to calm your mind and simply unwind. Breathe. Let it all go. Drink in the relaxation and happiness with V.i.B. [vacation in a bottle].

Put some distance between you and all that other stuff with our Pomegranate Berry flavor. Take your mind to a perfect paradise and your body to a peaceful, happy place.

So, open up. Drink. Chill. Be Happy.


Twisting the top off of ViB’s very professionally designed bottle, complete with the background of a scenic beach and attractive sunset, I was met with a very pleasant, very fruity aroma. The soft sweetness enticed me thoroughly with a delightful Pomegranate scent which is balanced very well and hides the earthiness of the B vitamins and is able to incorporate the lycii berry without it taking a front seat. A very refreshing tropical aroma is a great way to kick start my experience with ViB.

I was a bit worried about the flavor, simply for the inclusion of lycii berry. Lycii is essentially the same thing as a goji berry, and for those of you who have never tasted it, it tastes kind of like raisins, only more earthy. I don’t like it at all. However, a few sips and those worries diluted completely. The flavor is very delicious, with a wonderful amount of sweetness perfectly complemented by the tartness of pomegranate. The goji berry was incorporated very well and doesn’t take a front seat, in fact I could hardly detect it at all. I was able to detect some traces of vitamins though, along with a slight aftertaste. Those are minor qualms however, as the overall product is delightfully tasty.

ViB took a while to kick in, but once the L-Theanine and L-Threonine took effect I felt spectacular. I felt very well-rested, like I had just woken up in warm sunshine from the greatest nap ever. There were no feelings of lethargy, I didn’t feel bogged down, and I wasn’t tired. Just relaxed. I was actually really impressed with how well ViB actually worked. For those of you who have never had a relaxation drink, you’re missing out. This is great.

Vacation in a Bottle comes packaged in a 1.5 serving, 12 oz bottle for around $1.66 – $1.99, depending on where you get it. Shopping online yields various results, so do some looking before picking where to buy from to save some cash, as you’ll most likely have to buy in a bulk of 24 bottles at once. I really wish ViB had their own online store to make things easier, but it’s no big deal.

Final Words:

I like ViB: Pomegranate Berry. A lot, actually. Much more than I honestly thought I would. It smells and tastes great, comes in a great package, and works very, very well. There’s not really much to dislike about it, it’s a great product. Easily one of the best relaxation drinks I’ve ever come across, at any rate. Highly recommended.

    ViB tasted absolutely wonderful….and though I am a pretty calm low-stressed person in general….it took it another step down just like a day at the beach!

    Thanks for the article. It makes me want to leave work right now and go buy a bottle. In Portland, Oregon I have seen them at Fred Meyers (which is a chain of grocery stores most of us use).

    Orissa is in the process of working with group homes of dysfunctional children. Oils such as jojoba,
    linseed, evening primrose, and shea butter moisturizes. Heating dries up the hair,
    which can also create a lot of problems for your hair.

    In order to find the right healthy chemical
    free product, the individual must do their own research to find what is best for their skin. In our estimation,
    if you can see the benefits of pursuing public relations,
    there is no reason not to use the best law firm public relations firm out
    there. Back when I was 15 to 20 I tried every Summer to get the greatest suntan ever and I used to tell my buddy Darin White
    and I would one day write a book about how to get the
    best suntan.

    Holland: Tulip City, Michigan is a cultural feast of events: dance, art, music and historic Hope College right downtown. Velocity boaters
    like finding around at a quickly pace even though most fishermen want a boat to get to the fish
    so they usually shift at a slower pace. They could also garnish a car or a boat this
    way and put it into storage.

    Moisture may freeze at the expansion valve, giving some of the indication of under charging.
    When fishing with balloons, you are able to watch the shark take off with
    the bait. If you do, and if you eat fish every night, keep what you need to
    sustain them.

    doing extremely well in this field. People sell car for cash normally when it gives

    It is quite a challenging task to pick the right junkyard.
    When looking to sell your junk car, it is a good idea to first establish ownership
    of the vehicle, as many companies that buy junk cars only do so
    from titleholders. According to the brand and the functional condition of
    the vehicle, they offer a good amount starting from the least to the highest.
