No hangovers ever again? I'll TOAST! to that!

I Tried TOAST!'s 'Before You Drink' Gummies And I Am Pumped To Never Have A Hangover Again

It wasn't until I hit 23 years old that I started getting hangovers. It could've been from two glasses of wine or even a margarita at happy hour, the next day, consider me bed-bound until further notice.

After hearing the possibility of a couple of gummy bears preventing hangovers, naturally, I was very skeptical.


What is TOAST!?

TOAST! is a company that offers "Before You Drink" gummy bears that are supposed to process the alcohol in your body to acetate, which is harmless. Yeah, I'm no science buff, but the proof is in the hangover — or, lack thereof.

The gummies contain nutrients that make it possible to break down the alcohol in your body properly which, in turn, eliminates the hangover.

To learn more about the contents of the gummies and what exactly they do to prevent hangovers, read the science.


How did I use them?

Soon as I got these little purple gummies in the mail, I cracked open the cheapest bottle of wine I could find that I KNEW would incapacitate me from a hard hangover the next day and got to sipping and watching every chick-flick you could think of.

But before I drank my cabernet sauvignon, I popped five gummies in my mouth and waited for about an hour.

You don't need to avoid certain alcohols or not eat anything during your happy hour for the gummies to work, you can just eat the gummies and go about your life.

Overall review?

The gummies are super easy to consume and aren't hard to eat, it's like eating your favorite Scooby-Doo fruit snacks, just not as tasty.

They are by no means gross or hard to swallow, but they do have a little bit of a funky aftertaste that wasn't my favorite. They are blackberry flavored, which you can definitely taste, it's just the little aftertaste that isn't great.

"OMG come on, did they work or not?!" you're probably asking right now so I will get right to it, YES. They work.

To my surprise, I woke up the next morning with no pounding headache, nausea, or foggy brain. It was like I didn't drink at all, which I prefer to the alternative.

I give these gummies a 9.5 out of 10, a half-point knocked off for that tiny aftertaste that I wasn't fond of.

So if you suffer from bad hangovers, you need to invest in these "Before You Drink" gummies, you will not regret it.

It is $34.99 for a carton containing 16 servings gummies. If you want to take a baby step and try them out on a smaller scale first, you can purchase a sample pack with two servings for $4.99.

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
