Buy This Energy Drink, Help Kids—Lemon Lime is a drink put out by the charity Sheetz for Kidz, with 25 cents from each sale going towards the organization’s cause. If you want to know more, look it up. I just want to get out there before I begin my mighty hammering of this drink.
No, I don’t have a problem with Sheetz, but I do have a problem with this drink. It’s bad enough that if I were made a chief administrator of the organization tomorrow, I would rename it Buy This Energy Drink, Or Help Kids—make it a choice between drinking it or donating to Sheetz. I think they’d get a lot more revenue coming in that way, at least if other’s experiences were like my own. That out of the way, let’s get started!
Unknown—but it’s got to be on the low end of things.
EASE IN ACQUISITION—1
This was a Big Lots acquisition. More than many energy drinks, I think it deserves to be there.
This is the first of many failures when it comes to this drink. It doesn’t even try to be appealing—just slaps the ‘name’ of the drink on the front with some truly noxious coloration. Looking at it you can almost tell that the only reason you’d even think about buying it would be to donate indirectly to the organization.
Much as I hate to admit it, my two-and-a-half year old son likes a drink called Hog Wash, which is essentially a mix of water, high-fructose corn syrup, and dye. Most of the time when I’m out, I can convince him to drink something healthier—but sometimes he is insistent on the Hog Wash.
This drink reminds me of Hog Wash (though I think even my son would turn it down), just a conglomeration of industrial-grade chemicals made into a drink. It is overly sweet, it is fake tasting, and it is gross. I don’t mind Sheetz putting out an energy drink per se, but to put out a drink so bad as a compensation for donating is almost seems insulting (Ha ha! Got you to donate! SUCKER!!!).
Kick’s pretty crappy, also. Only enough to notice, and maybe take the edge off the cravings coming from a caffeine addiction.
