Healing Potion Energy Drinks Cary May 28, 2010 Soft Drinks 4 Comments This is incredible.Â You may have remembered our little piece on Jones Soda’s Dungeons & Dragons special edition.Â Well, the noble warriors at ThinkGeek have already gone to the next level and created energy drinks called Healing Potions. The bottles are key.Â If anyone played any classic Final Fantasy/Legend of Zelda role-playing games growing up (or still do while “building spreadsheets” at work), one is familiar with the bottles the potions are held in.Â Well, let a nerd tell you that these designs are spot on.Â The actual energy shot seems like standard sugar-free fare: Each tiny shot (in its own little potion bottle) gives you the caffeine rush (160mg) of 2 Scarlet Taurens (i.e. Red BullsÂ®) or 4 cups of office coffee (i.e. the crappy kind). Each shot also contains a load of stuff to refresh your mind, body, and fighting spirit – Elderberry (historically protects you from witches) and Ginseng, and vitamins like Biotin and Folic Acid, to name a few. So this is like 5 Hour Energy Shots packaged for gamers, geeks and nerds.Â The niche market is ripe for the nerdy plucking, and they seem to be a passionate, loyal bunch of consumers.Â Does this make me want to order a 6 pack, fire up the Nintendo and try to beat Chronotrigger in one night?Â Color me inspired. The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Cary Latest posts by Cary (see all) Sadvertising: Arby’s, My Mood, and Hate Eating - August 13, 2012 Sadvertising: International Delight Iced Coffee Fail [Fail] - July 2, 2012 Sadvertising: Truvia and the Art of Song Selection - June 18, 2012 4 Responses Lisbeth May 28th, 2010 These things have been out for YEARS. And they’re way too expensive to be worth buying. Reply Teracey May 29th, 2010 They taste horrible to boot! Reply Not Important July 27th, 2012 My DM lost his voice after drinking one of these. We had to cut our session short. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
