Cocaine Energy Drink
What did you think I meant?
One of the other bartenders at work brought some in and was daring people to try it- HA! little did he know who he was talking too!!
The hype behind Cocaine besides the name is that it contains 280 MG of Caffeine per 8.4 oz can. It also uses simple sugars rather then complex sugars so it doesn't cause the same crash as soda or other super sweet drinks or foods.
I didn't have more then a couple ounces but I can tell you that it was enough to cause a buzz.
The flavor is best described as Children's Tylenol and Pop Rocks. Not bad as far as energy drinks go.
There is one unique thing the drink has going for it and you are either going to love it or hate it. It contains special "secret ingredients" that cause the drink to both numb your throat and burn your throat at the same time as you drink it. It is incredibly uncomfortable bordering on painful.
Maybe I am just getting old. All the young whipper snappers at work loved the stuff. Me I think I will just stick to Starbucks.
By the way it seems that due to pressure from the FDA over the product name and a dispute with Coca-Coca over the can design that for the next few weeks you may have a hard time finding Cocaine in stores.
