Fuze Mega Energy Drink

Fuze Mega Energy Drink

(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 didn’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 “Adrenaline,” “Pit Bull,” “Rockstar,” or “Monster.” They also all contained the same energy inducing ingredients of caffeine, ginseng, inositol, taurine, carnitine, Ovaltine, and other things that end with “-tine.”

The Fuze Mega Energy Drink doesn’t deviate from any of that. It’s just like any other energy drink you’ve had.

Well folks, with the review part out of the way, we can now focus our attention towards this month’s prize drawing. Unfortunately, this time the prize won’t even be close to being as kick ass as last month’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 you’re trying to get rid of. So it would be pretty lame if we gave away Gmail invitations. (But if you don’t have a Gmail account, just email us and we’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 that’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 can’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 don’t seem like comment whores, you can also enter by sending us an email with the phrase “Fire Ice” in the subject field.

If you leave a comment, don’t forget to fill out the email field, because we will be emailing winners for their mailing addresses. Don’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 it’s time to pull winner we will shake it like it was a Polaroid picture or Beyonce’s luscious ass. After an adequate amount of shaking, the winning entries will be pulled.

For those of you who’ve never won anything before, here’s your chance to finally to win something. If the Boston Red Sox can win a World Series, there’s hope for you, as well.

  1. 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 😉

  2. 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!

  3. 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.


  4. 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!

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!!

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!
