Energy drinks are like cookie-cutter boy bands, they all look alike, none of them stand out, there are, annoyingly, waaay too many of them, and it would be nice if 90 percent of them didnâ€™t exist.
The Impulsive Buy has reviewed several energy drinks over the past seven months, like this one, this one, this one, and this one. All of them were greenish in color, almost tasted the same, and had some aggro name like â€œAdrenaline,â€ â€œPit Bull,â€ â€œRockstar,â€ or â€œMonster.â€ They also all contained the same energy inducing ingredients of caffeine, ginseng, inositol, taurine, carnitine, Ovaltine, and other things that end with â€œ-tine.â€
The Fuze Mega Energy Drink doesnâ€™t deviate from any of that. Itâ€™s just like any other energy drink youâ€™ve had.
Well folks, with the review part out of the way, we can now focus our attention towards this monthâ€™s prize drawing. Unfortunately, this time the prize wonâ€™t even be close to being as kick ass as last monthâ€™s 100th review prize. (If you want to know what the prize was for the 100th review prize drawing, click here.)
We thought about giving away the 50 Gmail invitations we recently received from Google, but most of you probably already have a Gmail account and also have 50 Gmail invitations that youâ€™re trying to get rid of. So it would be pretty lame if we gave away Gmail invitations. (But if you donâ€™t have a Gmail account, just email us and weâ€™ll send an invitation your way.)
So this month, the Impulsive Buy will be giving three lucky readers each a pack of Denytne Fire, which we reviewed yesterday.
But thatâ€™s not all…
Those three winners will also each receive a pack of Dentyne Ice.
Why are we including a pack of Dentyne Ice, which we have never and will never review?
Fire and ice just go together, baby! You canâ€™t have the Ying without the Yang, Ernie without Bert, or Mary Kate without Ashley.
To enter the drawing, just leave a comment for THIS review. Also, so that we donâ€™t seem like comment whores, you can also enter by sending us an email with the phrase â€œFire Iceâ€ in the subject field.
If you leave a comment, donâ€™t forget to fill out the email field, because we will be emailing winners for their mailing addresses. Donâ€™t worry about the shipping, we will take care of that.
We will start accepting entries for the drawing on February 16, 2005. We will stop accepting entries on February 19, 2005. Only one entry allowed per person. The drawing is only open to those in the United States and Canada. Sorry, to the rest of the world.
Entries will be stuffed into a Hefty HandySak and when itâ€™s time to pull winner we will shake it like it was a Polaroid picture or Beyonceâ€™s luscious ass. After an adequate amount of shaking, the winning entries will be pulled.
For those of you whoâ€™ve never won anything before, hereâ€™s your chance to finally to win something. If the Boston Red Sox can win a World Series, thereâ€™s hope for you, as well.
