As many high school students drink their cups of warm coffee each day, others have ventured past the Starbucks drive-through line into supermarkets. Supermarkets such as Stop and Shop and The Fresh Market here in Westport are catering to a new type of caffeine in energy drinks, more specifically Celsius Energy drinks.

"Celsius is a great way for me to cool down." Olivia Bernard '21 said. "The drinks are genuinely refreshing and good so as the weather is getting nicer, I could definitely see myself picking up a Celsius over a coffee."

In Westport, Celsius Energy drinks are sold from stores such as The Fresh Market, Stop and Shop, and Joey's by the Shore Featuring Elvira Mae's Coffee Bar.

"I get my Celsius from The Fresh Market because they have so many different flavors to choose from." Maya Wofsy '21 said. "My favorite flavor is Sparkling Fuji Apple Pear. I love to drink that flavor before I workout."

With only 10 calories per each can and 200mg of caffeine, Celsius is an alternative to the more sugary and customizable Starbucks and Dunkin' drinks.

Celsius flavors range from Sparking Watermelon to Wild Berry. Not only does the brand offer a variety of flavors but also, they offer carbonated and non carbonated versions of their energy drinks.

Along with convenient, local supermarkets in Westport, Celsius could also be bought online. Websites such as Amazon carry Celsius and, here, shoppers can buy and enjoy the drink in bulk.
