…It’s Things Thursday: Cocaine?

Cocaine

The energy drink market is filled with promises and potential, colors and animals, so how do you stand out from the crowd? You name your drink Cocaine, that’s how. By naming your drink after an illegal substance, you gain instant publicity (there’s no such thing as bad publicity, right?) as parents try to stop you, and instant popularity as kids try to drink you. So what’s in this “legal alternative” anyways? While they’re not going to sneak in any of the good stuff (wouldn’t addicted customers be great?), they do pack in:

Ingredients

Plus, with only 18g of sugar and 70 calories per serving, you’ll probably burn off the extra calories through teeth chattering alone. Apparently it tastes great, and with 350% greater energy than “The Bull”, it’s sure to have a few energy drink converts, though you might want to check for any preexisting heart problems before downing something like this, because in the end, Cocaine will always be a killer.

…7-Eleven wants to give you Fusion Energy?

7-Eleven Coffee

If the caffeine in your regular cup o’ joe just doesn’t seem to do it for you anymore, maybe it’s time to check out 7-Eleven’s new “Fusion Energy” coffee. The exclusive blend features guarana, ginseng and yerba maté, which are thought to boost energy and sharpen mental alertness. This isn’t going to be some kind of potent energy drink flavored coffee though, as it’s supposed to taste just like regular coffee (or at least regular 7-Eleven coffee). Considering that, supposedly, McDonald’s coffee beat out Starbucks coffee in a Consumer Reports taste test though, that might not be a bad thing.
