Deep Throat Energy Drink

Could this be the world's first energy drink inspired directly by porn? I don't know. But yes, for those who missed ScottC's introductory 101 lecture on naughtiness last fall, Deep Throat was and is a 1972 porn film starring Linda Lovelace and is probably one of the most (or at least admitted to by most) widely known porn titles in pop culture, even if the folks don't know the plot. Or won't admit to knowing it. You know what I mean. But yes, apparently for last year's 35th anniversary of the film's release, an energy drink was born.

Let's get to the taste first, then we can investigate the thrust of the product. Well. You know what I mean. The taste is nothing spectacular. It's very similar to Red Bull. But a bit milder and a bit smoother. As far as the energy bit goes, it's about average there as well. The caffeine content isn't listed on the can, although it does involve guarana extract as well. Bear in mind that this is me who's writing this review, so it does take a bit of a bazooka blast of caffeine at times to get me to notice anything. That's not to say that this is a negative review--not in the least. It was actually pretty pleasant to drink. But it's certainly not innovative--but sometimes you just want a known quantity. Especially if you've been trying around and all the innovations keep fizzling out.

One thing is that everything about this can screams "novelty item." There's Linda Lovelace on the front of the can. Above her is "XXX-Treme Energy." Below her is "Keep it UP all night." The warning--the funny warning, anyway--says: "Deep Throating the Energy Drink can may be a choking hazard." This right next to a ruler that shows the can at being five inches. These are all terribly amusing novelty-type things--and this puts this, you'd think at least, in a category of drink that you would sell in adult toy shops or at porn conventions much like you would brand a cola with Doc Holliday's name and sell it in Tombstone. But again, this isn't a detraction from the product. In fact, if they can make a profit doing that, then more power to them. The drink itself is more than acceptable, it's just the packaging that's got a naughty sense of humor. And naughty packaging never hurt anybody, but amused many.

You can buy it directly from their site. Site is mostly SFW, unless you work at a convent or something of that nature.
