Mountain Dew Game Fuel

Mountain Dew Game FuelMountain Dew has had more spinoffs than the Power Rangers. Seriously, you’ve got Code Red, Baja Blast, LiveWire, and several limited edition flavors. (Not to mention all sorts of Mountain Dew Slurpee flavors…) The latest of these odd concoctions is Mountain Dew Game Fuel. Colored a bright orange, this citrus/cherry-flavored beverage is promoting the upcoming release of HALO 3.

The mixture of citrus and cherry is a little odd, but it works. It’ll never replace my love for regular Mountain Dew, but I would definitely drink it again.

Full Throttle Mother

Full Throttle Mother“Full Throttle: Nature is one BAD Mother”

Full Throttle, Full Throttle Fury and Full Throttle Blue Demon are amongst my favorite energy drinks. Seeing another Full Throttle flavor crop up seemed like a no brainer and so I decided to pick one up yesterday.

Full Throttle Mother is quite possibly one of the worst beverages I’ve ever consumed. (It’s second only to Tab.)

Where Mother goes wrong is the fruit juice… The berry flavor just didn’t do it for me. It created an aftertaste that was hardly palatable. I took two sips and had to put it down. I had three other coworkers try it out and two of them had the same reaction as I did: this drink sucks.
