Cyclone Energy Shot Raging Berry

Cyclone Energy Shot Raging Berry

Hello everybody, we're reporting live from somewhere. I'm not sure where we are because I can't see a damn thing. I just got this promotion to news reporter last week and this is my first time in the field. They didn't tell me where they were taking me, just said it would be "unforgettable". Well I definitely won't forget standing outside in the middle of a hurricane. What's that? Oh this is considered a cyclone, but isn't yet a hurricane? Either way, it sucks! I wore my nice suit today because I wanted to look nice on camera and now this rain has ruined it.

Looking back to an hour ago, I should have known this was going to happen. Jim wouldn't let me see what the weather was like on the coast because he was being a jerk. Plus, he gave me this Cyclone energy shot and told me they were out of coffee. What kind of TV station runs out of coffee? That's absurd! That's what interns are for, to go to the store and get more coffee. But I digress...

This energy shot actually wasn't that bad. I had one once before when I was in college during finals week. It really worked! This one seems to be working too. The taste is pretty good too. It's like a tart cherry syrup flavor. Oh great, a tree branch just knocked the rest of the energy shot out of my hand. Luckily we weren't rolling. What? We've been live this whole time? I thought you were just checking your levels!? Great, now I'm going to get letters from people saying that I littered and my mom is going to think I'm on drugs. She thinks anything besides water is bad for you to drink. Okay, we're done here!

Tomic Energy Shot Fruit Blast

Tomic Energy Shot Fruit Blast

Tommy, want to see something cool? My dad was in the army and I was snooping around his garage yesterday and found a grenade! It’s a little smaller than I expected it to be, but they always make things look bigger in movies. What do you mean it’s not a real grenade? So what if there are words on it? I just figured there are different models of grenades, just like guns. It’s all about advertising and brand recognition.

Oh, I didn’t see the ingredient list on the back. Wait, so this is an energy drink? And this is just a plastic wrapper that looks like a grenade? Man I feel like an idiot. It looks so lifelike though. Want to open it? No, I don’t think it’s going to blow up because the flavor is “fruit blast”. Why would they make an explosive energy drink? That’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Have you ever had an energy shot before Tommy? No? Well, they usually taste gross. Imagine the taste of an energy drink condensed into a couple tablespoons. You’re supposed to just chug them, hence why they are called “energy shots”. This one isn’t too bad actually. It has a fruit punch taste to it. Yes Tommy, I know you love Hawaiian Punch. Come on Tommy, you don’t need to show me your…. okay, that Hawaiian Punch tattoo is actually pretty cool. Too bad this doesn’t taste like Hawaiian Punch.

The whole time I was drinking this, I kept being tempted to throw it. It’s just the perfect size to grip. Given that the packaging looks like a grenade, who wouldn’t want to throw it?

Rhino's Energy Shot Cola

Rhino's Energy Shot Cola

I've gotten in the habit of smelling drinks before I drink them, as if it's going to prepare me for what it tastes like. This smells like cough syrup, which half surprised me since this is supposed to be cola flavored. But on the other hand, I should expect it since most energy shots taste pretty bad. While this isn't the worst tasting energy shot ever, it's definitely not the best. I don't really see how this is cola flavored. There is a VERY slight cola aftertaste, but it's overshadowed by the gross energy drink taste.
