von dutch energy drink

Energy drinks all have the exact same stuff, it’s just which age group is being targeted and how. The entertaining thing is seeing the cola guys scramble for a piece of the action. It doesn’t seem that complicated but their efforts so far (Coke’s KMX & Full Throttle; Pepsi’s Amp & new Mountain Dew MDX) have bombed. Coke’s latest tack is to outsource: It’s pairing up w/ the people behind the gross (tho moderately successful) Rockstar on Von Dutch Energy Drink, another Red Bull wannabe in a camo-colored can, hoping to lure in baby teens who know the brand cuzza its stupid trucker hats.

Woo Hoo! First! A bit trendy for me though, TG. I mean, isn't it just designer Red Bull?

plus check out the creeps who make it. the other thing i hate about this (& its evil twin cousin rockstar) is that they're "double" servings. so it's just a big gross shot of caffeine and junk. that's the "value" they added to the red bull formula - classic american TWICE AS MUCH. the elegant thing about red bull is its portion size.

And its ability to blend to nicely with vodka, TG.

We should all take a tip from the 80s and realize that two or three little snorts of coke, 20 to 30 times a day, is much more effective -- and easier to carry -- than a a case of these energy drinks. That's what got ME through high school.

Sister? Apparently you haven't seen the giant syringe I've been carrying around. Much bigger than that can of Von Douche.

I know I am!


I hate red bull and adding it to wodka is an insult to potatoes.
