Let me buy you a drank...

" width=

OK, so I get a ton of products that come across my desk every week, and in general I ignore them. But this one is too awesomely bad, in so many respects, I couldn't resist sharing. Get this: it's an anti-energy drink called Drank. Their slogan? "Slow your roll with Drank."

I had to try this stuff. It's hard to imagine how something that lists high fructose corn syrup and sucrose as its second and third ingredients (after water) would relax you, but I was willing to be a human guinea pig. It also contains melatonin, valerian, and rose hips. It comes in a big can, and is fizzy and purple. It basically tastes like grape Cisco (for those of you who were young and delinquent in the early '90s) - a very sweet grape flavor with an odd, medicinal edge. I drank about half the can (each can holds two servings, and warns that you shouldn't drink more than those two servings in a 24 hour period), and waited. About 10 minutes later, I did start to feel strangely...calm. Sleepy, almost. A half hour after that, I was wide awake again. Now I'm doing my usual thing, which is to stay up way too late staring at my computer. But I can imagine if I had drank Drank right before I planned to fall asleep, it might have helped.

But really, is a big, sugary beverage with a crazy purple can aimed at folks who want a more natural way to relax than Xanax? I can only imagine it will be popular amongst the revelers who drink it after a long night of too many...uh...Red Bulls.
