Default Coca-Cola Blak

Blech is more like it. I'd seen the bottles in the cooler for a couple of weeks now and was curious. I finally broke down and paid way too much for 237 ml (for reference that's 1 cup US measurement)of crap.

The flavour I didn't actually mind too much...kinda like those hard candies with the coffee flavouring in the middle...but it was the aspartame aftertaste that completely ruined it.

If I need a caffeine hit, I'll go for Bawls at that price.

I thought it was like drinking coffee ice cream. I won't try it again, though. The whole coffee after taste is something I'm not a huge fan of anyway.

I dont know where you would even get the idea that it would taste good.

Coke = good.

Coffee = good.

coke mixed with coffee = carbonated diarrhea

Bawls and Jolt Red have been my favorites so far. Just got a case of Buzzwater, and we're gonna sneak some into the coffee machine at work.

Is it an energy drink? If so, that probably explains why I haven't tried it. I've tried Red Bull, Mountain Dew MDX, and Tab Energy, but that's it. I'm not a big fan of the turbo-caffeine drinks as it is - caffeine makes me all bajiggity.

You want an energy drink?


http://nutrivation.net/


Find a store that sells that. Buy one. Do not drink it on an empty stomach and only drink half the bottle if it's your first one. I thought nothing of it when I tried it first and chugged the bottle on an empty stomach. I was shaking for 2 fucking hours.

Warning: not intended for use by anyone under the age of 18. do not use this product if you are pregnant or nursing. persons suffering from or at risk for any disease should consult a health practitioner before using this product.

It's AWESOME STUFF.

I generally prefer STarbucks or some other coffee for my caffeine.... for some reason most energy drinks taste like battery acid to me (I don't like citrus). I can sometimes drink a Red Bull, because they are so small... but they taste like crap to me... I'll try Tab... fruity and bubbly sounds good!

I like Starbucks around the holidays, because I like the special holiday drinks. The Gingerbread Latte is good, but the Peppermint Mocha's my favorite. I also like the Caramel Apple Cider and the Caramel Macchiatto, but those alone aren't usually enough to get me to go to Starbucks on a regular basis, year-round.

The trick to energy drinks if you are caffeine sensitive is to knock it down with a depressant. Try Red Bull and Jaagermeister. They both taste like shit on their own, they taste like 2 shitty drinks combined when you put them together!

It is a great feeling, after about 15 of those, you will be wide awake while you puke your guts up!
