    This sounds like a challenge.

    Do you really want to battle a Canadian in a drinking game?

    I suppose it's possible that it might taste like smarties, seeing as how smarties taste like crap, too. Reeses pieces FTW.

    a) You're a fucking idiot. Smarties win that battle, hands down.
    b) She's not talking about Canadian Smarties, she is talking about American smarties, which we call rockets in Canada. Either that or she is insane, as Red Bull/Vodka tastes just like liquid rockets, and nothing like candy coated chocolate.

    Summary: Red Bull/Vodka improves both the Red Bull AND the Vodka (unless you have very very good vodka)

    I still can't wrap my ego around drinking "Bawls" and "blue Bawls" at that. It was worsened when I saw that sticker that said "Fueled by Bawls". I'm in no way homophobic, I just don't want to be powered by balls. Maybe if it was amended to "my Bawls", but then again they don't really fuel me as much as drive me to do wicked, wicked things...

    Plus I've drank so much caffienein my life that it has no effect on my mental or energy state. It might as well be flavored water, but good tasting flavored water, like root beer. Or cola, with rum in it. What was I talking about?

    OH and the sound of those shits dropping kind of got on my nerves. Although I'll probably take the dude from the second Mike/Jerry panel's advice and use it as a drinking game with the DVD.

    First off, agreed, Bawls is shit. The mints were even worse.

    If you wanna try a good energy drink, get away from all of those crappy fruity girly drinks. Jolt Cola is an old classic. If you're lucky and can get a hold of any Afri-Cola, you'll be in heaven, cause you will prolly die of a caffiene overdose.

    ...But damn you'll enjoy it

    I have to admit, Bawls isn't first place in my heart. Diet Mega (Cosmo, not Mojito) is my favorite. But Bawls will always be there for me during late-night gaming sessions. <3

    a) Reeses pieces are way better than the Canadian Smarties. Hands down!
    b) they do taste more like rockets than they do Smarties, but "just like" ? Not even close, unless your tastebuds are fried.

    I guess your summary confirms that...while vodka does improve Red Bull by making it alcoholic, it does little to the taste. Red Bull definitely does NOT improve vodka's taste, unless you're drinking shite vodka.

    I still prefer beer. If I want caffiene with my beer I'll take a goddamn pill and not have to deal with the shitty taste and overpriced beverage.

    Bawls isn't good, but it's inoffensive, and carries a good punch.

    Bawls Mints are a great pick-me-up between bottles, and the fizzle on the tongue is a bonus.

    SnowBawls seems to share no chemical relationship with the actual energy drink beyond the caffeine content, which is good.

    I have to weigh in that I like the sugar-free Bawls the best, though I save it for special occasions when I need a real boost. I use the Bawls mints for a quick pick-me-up (they aren't nearly as potent).

    I've recently discovered Yerba Mate tea, which has a similar non-jittery caffeine. Of course, you have to drink a lot of it (3-4 small French presses worth) to get a Bawls-worth of boost.

    Funny story: My 2 1/2 year-old son has dubbed my clear sugar-free Bawls "Daddy Water" since he's seen me drinking it so much lately. :lol:

    Bawls tastes like shit when you have that fucking much of it. God... I chugged a 10oz bottle of snobawls after having a case of the mints. I think I'm gonna swear off 'em for a bit.

    We call those rockets.

    Cadbury chocolate created Smarties and sell them in Canada and Europe. It's candy coated milk chocolate. It is also awesome. It is also 10x better then either Reeces Pieces or M&Ms as they are made by a chocolate company that actually produces reasonable chocolate. If anyone wants a sample, I'd be happy to mail them one.

    Anyway, when they turned to the American market they found another candy called Smarties and gave up.

    Geez, man. Too awesome.
    I'm still glad I didn't flash my balls for a bottle. Normally, I'd love to flash the entire convention, but not for something I just gotta go up the stairs for. People did all that shit knowing full well they could've shelled out a buck? Nuts. lol

    Greetings,

    Actually, I have always liked the taste of bawls. I like the fact that it isn't very sweet like most non alcoholic carbonated drinks. Also, even though I am the caffeine addict in my click, I still feel like I am about to have a heart attack after four of them in an eight hour period. I guess my friends and I are just light weights. Although I do recall drinking a helluva lot at PAX 04', and seemed to do ok.

    Sincerely,
    TastEPlasma

    PS Speaking of energy drinks, I like to mix mine up rather than drink the same thing all day. For instance, coffee first, then redbull, then SoBe Energy is a preferred combination (drank over the course of an entire day). Bawls is hard to find around here, which is why I usually get it special, say when I go and get carry out sushi. Anyone else?

    Bawls taste good damnit, now I need to get myself some... Wouldve bought a case or two at PAX if it wasnt for the lack of room on the flight home... I was mixing that stuff with Mountain Dew Pitch Black last year, which they brought black(Well, Pitch Black 2, tastes the same but is sour now), so Ill have to grab me some Bawls again... Regardless of what other people say about it, I like it.

    And those Sno Bawls deffinatly kicked alot of ass, especially since they were free...

    Honestly, Bawls' taste is bearable. It's not wonderful, but it tastes okay and certainly has a great amount of caffeine. Also it is nowhere near as bad as Red Bull.

    And AMP is the best.

    Bawls is the most palatable and refreshing energy drink I've ever tasted.
