Here at the Impulsive Buy there is a list on the wall called, “Top 5 Most Wanted,” which is a list of products that I REALLY want to try. It’s kind of like the FBI’s Top 5 Most Wanted.

Of course, there’s a big difference between the two. When you find something on the Impulsive Buy’s list, you might gain weight from it. When you find someone on the FBI’s list, you might get killed.

The most wanted product on the Impulsive Buy list was a new beer called BE (pronounced B-to-the-E) from Budweiser, who seem to get a lot of free product placement in the television show Cops. (Budweiser, the King of Beers…Among Criminals)

What makes BE a different kind of beer is that it’s a fruity-smelling beer, spiked with caffeine, guarana, and ginseng. An energy beer, if you will. According to what I’ve read about BE, the amount of caffeine in it is about the same you will find in a can of Mountain Dew.

So I’ve been looking for BE ever since it came out in November, but I couldn’t find it anywhere.

I checked at the national convenience store chain down the street, the national grocery store chain I shop at, the small-business destroying behemoth, the local grocery store nearby, and even the small liquor store at the corner that sells alcohol and cigarettes to minors. None of them carried it.

Finally, this week I happened to be with some friends at a local bar and noticed that one of the waitresses had a BE in her hands. I instantly went to the bar to order one.

I was kind of disappointed when the bartender pulled out of those smaller-than-usual cans which most energy drinks come in, because I figured it would take a lot of those small cans to get most people drunk…Except me, because I’m such a lightweight drinker.

Give me a couple shots of tequila and I’d give ANYONE a lap dance.

So how does the BE taste?

It’s not bad. It has a sweet and sour taste to it, like most energy drinks, but you can also definitely taste the Budweiser as well. So just imagine Red Bull mixed with Budweiser.

I would’ve had another BE, but because I’m such a lightweight drinker and my sister was there with us, I wanted to make sure that there was NO WAY I would end being drunk enough to give her a lap dance.

Item: BE
Purchase Price: $3.50 (plus tip)

  1. Blog Explosion is making beer now?… And, EW! they put guano in this beer?? That’s just disgusting! I mean, who would want to drink…oh…that’s “guarana”. Ah. Is there a difference?

  2. Keisha – Your welcome.

    UncleHornHead – Never say never, because you never know what you’ll drink when your drunk.

    Elliott – Um…I did just tell you how it was. 🙂

    mai – It’s like an exponential, like four to the second power.

    Mellie – Yes, there is. One gives you energy and the other gives you…Um…Energy. Well according to the second Ace Ventura movie.

    jen – It’s five dollars, plus tip.

  3. Don’t think I would ever try this as I don’t like RedBull,, but I think I have seen Method dish soap all the time at my Target store,, there are several different scents I think. Never tried it but now you have me curious about it.

  4. Tara – Actually, I just got some Method Dish Soap and Bathroom Cleaner from a friend for Christmas. Try the Cucumber.

    Aymie – I’m going to need A LOT of luck with that. 🙂

  5. When I waited tables, we always got a heads up on these products. Some of the stuff they come up with blows my mind.

    Hey have you by any chance done a review of the Butterfinger Crisp? Jenn over at Fickle Whimsy and I tried them the other day and their really good. If you haven’t, you should try one.

  6. Marvo, I’m kinda suprised that you did a review for “B to the E”. It’s seems kinda wussy to me. I’m just saying. I’m a Coors Light girl though…

    I will however take one lapdance to go please. =)
    xx Jenny

  7. jen – Yes, I would. Damn this weak American dollar!

    Krista – No, I haven’t done a review on the Butterfinger Crisp, but I did try one…two…three…four…um…a whole lot of them. Yes, they are DAMN good.

    Jenny – What can I say? I’m a wuss. Usually I just drink water, but with a lemon wedge. 🙂

  8. As a beer drinker, this caffinated Bud is blasphemy!…but (sigh) I still had to try it. Budweiser is SO not the king of beers, however, they should stick to what they know and not venture into the energy drink market.

  9. ~Buttweiser is the King of Hangovers, no amount of caffeine would ever make me bring a can, bottle or draft of Buttweiser to my lips…~

  10. I own a Chicken Dance Elmo and I love it more b/c my dog HATES it and goes nuts when I make it dance. LOL But the song plays really loud and gets annoying really fast.

  11. i have a shitm load of those condoms..and the elmo chicken dance.
    now either thats disturbing…or kinky…
