So for being in Baltimore on the occasion of the Poe Bicentennial, my first thought was to find a 7-Eleven, as we don’t have them in Atlanta. There have been reports before of drinks one can only find there. The Simpsons tie-in event was there, for example. But all I was able to lay hands upon at first was this: an energy drink based around the Domo character. This is the great mystery, as no one I was able to talk to while I was here understood why this character was popular enough to be plastered about the store in this promotional manner. Indeed, most Americans probably don’t know what the character’s name is, only that “it’s that thing chasing that kitten in that joke picture about masturbation.”
As for what this drink has going for it, it’s got 50% of your RDA for Vitamins B6 and B12, plus Guarana. Caffeine content? Unknown…although I’m thinking it’s in the Red Bull 80mg arena. And speaking of that Simpsons tie-in, this drink is from Boston America, who brought you that Duff Energy Drink as well as another novelty drink, Tropic Thunder‘s Booty Sweat.
Regardless, I couldn’t finish it. It ranks up there with the general novelty item drink, i.e. if you’re into it, buy a can and never open it. Just display it on your shelf. You’ll be safer that way.
