(Editor’s Note: I recently upgraded to WordPress 1.5 and things are probably not looking right. If things are looking really weird, try emptying your browsers cache. I’m trying to get my old theme back, but then again the site could use a new look. Plus, I don’t think my RSS feeds are working.)
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.

Not to be greedy or anything, but if I am the only one, do I get all 6 packs?
Josh – I don’t think you’ll be the only one, but if you are, I’ll give you all six.
I dunno if I’m the only one who can see this, but your site looks messed, dude 🙂 All of your sidebar stuff is stuck to the bottom as though you used dentyne as duct tape 😉
Wow! Fire and Ice! Thats fantastic! Hope I win!
Marvo…YOU start my day better than any energy drink out there! Count me in for the Dentyne! Love the reviews….keep up the good work and humorous reviews!
Will the fire part really make me jump the first person I see?
Hook it up Marvo.
since the Red Sox won the World Series as a result of the birth of my son, I feel obligated to enter any drawing with their victory as a reference.
Love the look of the site Marvo – though I can tell you are missing stuff. Everything looks fine – nothing way out in left field. I’m using Firefox, just so you know it’s working for this browser.
Your method of picking this winner is no where near as exciting as the last drawing but I understand that you have to make some drawings more special than others.
So put me in the baggie for some Fire & Ice baby!
A whole pack of dentyne ice! How many times can 1 person enter? :0)
i cant have “fire” b/c of a cinnamon allergy, but “ice: arctic chill” is not only a swift kick in the teeth but pretty good compared to all the other “extreme” gums
Count me in. And you’re right — your RSS feeds aren’t working.
Claire – Empty your browser’s cache and maybe things will look normal.
Chris – Good luck!
Aymie’s Mom – Thanks, your comments make my day. 🙂
Lorien – If you do, and end up in jail, you should use it next time with caution.
Jamie – Good luck!
mel – I thought the Red Sox won because of Curt Shilling, but I could be wrong. 🙂
Tina – Yeah, it was a special occasion last time. Probably the next time you’ll see a drawing that exciting will be for the Impulsive Buy’s one year anniversary, which is over five months away.
tanya – No, you can win TWO PACKS, one Dentyne Ice and one Dentyne Fire. Shazaam!!! Also, you can only enter once.
sammy – Sorry about the cinnamon allergies. Oooh, I have a sudden urge for a Cinnabon.
Karen – Thanks for letting me know about my RSS feeds, now I have to figure out how to fix them.
Since I don’t chew gum, please exclude me from this month’s drawing. I just wanted to mention that I think the product name might be “Fuze Omega Energy Drink”, given the Greek symbol for Omega at the top of the can. And while your site does look different than it did before, it looks just fine with Safari.
Mellie – First off, I just wanted to say, I hope you’re feeling better. Now, I went to their site http://www.drinkmegaenergy.com and they call it just Mega Energy. I’m thinking the designer of the can was in a fraternity and he wanted to represent.
Hey I just wanted to say that this has to be one of the best websites i have been on. I was just introduced to it a few weeks ago and i have read it everyday since then. Keep up the good work. You have the best prizes out there so enter me in for the Fire and Ice. Woo Hoo!!!
Oh me, oh me, pick me me meeeee!
Me want gum.
i’m in for free stuff.
becky – Thanks for the compliment and good luck.
jennifer and the beans – We will see.
Kristin – Me want cookie, but I’m not getting any soon. 🙂 Good luck.
gabe – Yeah, I dig free stuff, too.
Your site looks spiffy from my end 🙂
Hey Looks like you found yet another use for the Hefty Handy Bags!!!
Whats That #70?
I want stuff too =).
Have you tried the low carb Mega? It’s pretty good for 1g of carbs
Thumper – Thanks, now I just have to fine tune it.
Damon – I think we’ve reached 105 uses, so Hefty was correct. But it would’ve so much easier if they just told us what the 101 uses were.
akiko – Low carb…I think I’ve had enough of low carb until next week.
Woo-Hoo for Bawls.
The site looks okay but the RSS feed is definitely pooched.
Come’on baby, light my fire!! Want that Dentyne too, I always try stuff that makes you horny. Thanks goodness for the Dentyne Ice to break all that heat down. Coool!
Gum that makes people horny … and no prescription is required? BRILLIANT! Count me in!
I want some gum…
ick. my breath stinks. i’m totally entering this contest.
If I win this contest, I won’t not have any gum to give away at school. Sweet!
I think it’s the 19th. Is it? Hope this entry makes it in!! Free gum? Hell Yeah!
Oh, oh, oh. Who wants gum? I do, I do.
I also have 50 Gmail account invitations if you run out of your 50, like that would happen. 🙂
Leah – Definitely not likely. I don’t even know five people.
