Yarrr! Smugglin' the booty from Arrrrrrrgentina!

Nothing makes me think more of America these days than energy drinks and illegal drugs. So, it's only natural that they name an energy drink after an illegal drug.

Well, natural in my thought process anyway.

Cocaine energy drink says that it gets its unique formula from not having things like Taurine and Guarana, but by adding caffienne and dextrose, a form of glucose that they say won't let you come down like regular sugar drinks. You're supposed to ride the high for a lot longer because it doesn't have the High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). Dextrose is also used in a lot of foods to keep it from being too sweet, so this one may not give you that Jolly Rancher feel that you get from Red Bull.

Not that they promote the use of illegal drugs, but if you wanted to, they say that this would be a great drink to go along with them.

I'll have to settle for trying it with vodka.

(Note: I know Cocaine is usually affiliated with Columbia, but then I couldn't talk like a pirate)
