Full Throttle Mother

If Mother Nature finds out how bad the Full Throttle Mother energy drink tastes, which is named after her because it gets its flavor and energy from natural sources, she’s going to be fucking pissed and I’m afraid of the horrors she’ll unleash upon us. Just like Whitney Houston on crack or a bald Britney Spears, when Mother Nature gets mad, that bitch gets crazy.

Perhaps she’ll create hurricanes, tornadoes, snow storms, a celebrity sex tape that shows too much of her “forest,” sand storms, really hard rain, hail, or any other crazy shit found in the 2004 movie The Day After Tomorrow.

To prepare for the possible apocalypse, I’ve already started stocking up on bottled water, canned goods, batteries, waterproof matches, ponchos, toilet paper, and a first aid kit. I’m also bringing my list of women who have said that the only way they would have sex with me is if I’m the last man on Earth. If Mother Nature releases her wrath, which is more powerful than the Wrath of Khan, but with less breastfeeding than The Grapes of Wrath, I maybe getting laid.

I should’ve known that the Full Throttle Mother energy drink was going to be bad, after all, it does have the word “bad” on its can. They put the word “bad” on there as part of a marketing tagline, but it’s really an omen. The energy drink itself had a tart and bitter taste to it, which made every sip seem like Mother Nature was slapping me across my face and saying, “I’m Rick James, bitch!”

With apple, pear, and blueberry juice, along with acai berry listed in the ingredients, I was hoping that the Full Throttle Mother energy drink would be deliciously sweet, but for some reason that combination turned out wrong, like mixing the potent sperm of Kevin Federline with the egg from any ovulating female. Although no matter how wrong its flavor turned out, the bitchslapping with every sip did help keep me alert until the caffeine kicked in.

Speaking of sweet, sweet caffeine, the 142 milligrams of it per 16-ounce can is probably the only really redeeming quality about the Full Throttle Mother energy drink. That’s enough of caffeine to jump start your day or cause possible heart palpitations after a long night of playing Halo 3.

Overall, the Full Throttle Mother energy drink is bad, just like its can says. It’s probably one of the worst tasting energy drinks I’ve had. Getting its energy from natural sources and having natural flavors is nice, but it would be even better if it were a USDA certified organic energy drink, like Steaz Energy Drink. It does have a nice amount of caffeine per can, although I have to say that the caffeine content might not be enough to impress Mother Nature to prevent her from unleashing the worst PMS-ing ever for naming a bad product after her.

    Mother
    Tell your children not to walk my way
    Tell your children not to hear my words
    What they mean
    What they say
    Mother

  2. FatYoli says:

    oh Lord Jezo I now love you even more

  3. Chuck says:

    Just remember, a Bad Mother isn’t sweet. She’s always bitter.

    “Mother, did it need to be so high?”

  4. Erika says:

    If I were you, I’d call and report this Bad Mother to the child welfare authorities. You know, like they did to Britney.

  5. Peachy says:

    Just great. Now the husband and I will have to plywood the windows for the upcoming mega hurricane that is sure to overcome us!

    53 sugar grams and a listing of fruit juices and somehow it tastes bitter? What a waste.

  6. EG says:

    Awesome review. Had me rolling.

  7. Brie says:

    I wonder what Samuel L. Jackson (a self-professed “Bad Motherfucker”) would think of this stuff.

    Good to have you back, Marvo. :)

  8. Melonie says:

    Ick, I’m glad it was you that tried this, not me. ;)

  9. demondoll says:

    Dayumn! That sounds so nasty…

  10. Colin says:

    If Mother Nature release => If Mother Nature *releases*

    Your mom’s an energy drink…

  11. Marvo says:

    Lord Jezo – I just wanted to let you know that I had to Google those lyrics.

    FatYoli – I love him more.

    Chuck – Fortunately, I didn’t get anything similar to bitter beer face.

    Erika – Why is it that the biggest pop stars ever should not be allowed to be around kids. Britney Spears. Michael Jackson.

    Peachy – Maybe it’s not made with fruit juices. Maybe it’s Mother Nature’s tears.

    EG – Thanks! I wish I read your review before reviewing this, I might’ve skipped it.

    Brie – He would probably consume it via IV needle.

    Melonie – I am a human guinea pig. Mostly pig, less guinea.

    demondoll – It is nas-tay.

    Colin – FUCK! I need a copy editor, because I suck at it.

  12. K Renee says:

    God, make it stop! Hilarious!

  13. Marvo says:

    K Renee – Thanks.

    I find it hard to believe that any energy drink could be worse than a brand I tried called Re5.

    It tasted like… and I an NOT kidding… bile.

    My energy drink of choice is Energia!, which is brought out by the people who make Clamato. Yes, it’s a clam/tomato flavored energy drink. Going for a savory, rather than sweet, flavor makes it… interesting. (There are still the background flavors from the herbs and supplements common to most energy drinks, which a lot of people find offputting.) Difficult to find, though, since it’s mostly marketed to Hispanic markets.

    Bruce A. – I salute you for being able to drink Energia!
