Imulsion Energy Drink

I was a bit surprised when I saw this energy drink at a local electronics retailer. I bought one for $2.99 and kept it in the refrigerator for a week before I psyched myself up enough to try it. I mean, come on, it’s got the Gears of War skull right on the can—I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Let’s back up. Do you remember what imulsion is within the game itself: that yellowy, noxious, toxic stew that can mutate biological lifeforms? Naturally, it was made into a marketable energy drink.

At 110 calories and 210% of my recommended daily B12 intake, I tepidly took a drink. And another. I was shocked—it was
actually good! In fact, one of the best energy drinks I’ve ever had—seriously. It’s tart, maybe a little sour (in a good way), and it goes down smooth.

There’s definitely enough sweetness in this drink—after carbonated water, the second ingredient is high fructose corn syrup, and the third is…
sugar. Nice!
