Brand: Joose

Flavor: "Jungle Joose"

Booze: 9.9%

Serving Size: 23.5 oz.

Stimulants: Taurine, Ginseng, Caffeine

Other Known Ingredients: Certified Color, FD&C Yellow #5

Tastes Like: Equal parts Sweet 'n' Low, buttered popcorn, and burnt clutch.

Verdict: Hutus wouldn't have made Tutsis drink this stuff during the Rwandan genocide. If I were Haitian, drinking this would be the worst thing that happened to me this week. Would only purchase again for use as an insecticide.

Rating: Zero. As in, zero redeeming qualities. And zero chance I will ever drink it again.

Joose is amazingly terrible. I have now sampled every flavor. They are all terrible. Like Con-Air terrible (in the sense that it's so bad you actually start to enjoy it). The buzz is deadly, as well, if you drink enough. That 9.9 sneaks up on you pretty quick. And the resulting hangover provides the feeling of a belly full of thumb-tacks. Bad things happen when the Joose is loose...

...curious...we still get Sparks here in SD...

Just because they stopped making it, doesn't mean there still isn't enough supply kicking around.  :horrormirth:

I've got this strange feeling that ECH will never be able to find a good alcoholic energy drink.
You cannot fathom the immensity of the fuck i do not give.

Sure he will, just crush caffeine tablets into a powder and stir into his favourite beer.
It's not trolling, it's just satire.

now I'm intrigued. What is this "Power Thirst"?

also, Suu, they totally still make Sparks. It's like the new MD 20/20 out here, in that any self-respecting high school kid has a couple cans in their backpack. They may have dropped it from the NE market, though, as I recall not seeing it anywhere in ME, NH, or MA for a couple of years now.

There is only one "good" alcoholic energry drink and that is a triple vodka and red bull.  And even that is questionable by most standards of taste and decency.

ECH's post-prep pre-lunch-rush breakfast of choice when working:

combine in blender:

1 banana (peeled)
1 raw egg (shell can be discarded, if preferred)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup milk
1 cup decent brandy or rum

blend until smooth, then pour into a 22oz. mug until about 1/2 to 2/3 full.
top mug off with 1/2 can of fruit punch-flavored Nos Energy Drink
stir gently with spoon to mix, then pound it down.

repeat, as you will usually end up with enough to make two mugs.

you won't have to eat for a good 12 hours and you will be totally ready to fistfight a rhino.

I think with that much rum, the egg is pretty much cooked.  But, they say egg substitutes don't have the same issues but all the same protien.  IDK, the thought of raw eggs is just EWWW to me.  I can drink the rest of it!!

you never notice the raw egg blended in with all that stuff. And I've been eating eggs raw and/or over-easy for most of my life and have never gotten sick from it once. the trick with raw egg is to not let it sit out at room temp for long, and to be sure to wash the shells (gently) before you crack the eggs open in the first place.

They also make pasteurized eggs, or you can gently lower it into boiling water for 1 minute then stick it in an ice bath.
I'm not scared of eggs, I've eaten shit WAY SCARIER from the back of my fridge  :lol:
