There’s a shop in Brighton that sells imported sweets and other sugar-filled snacks. I usually buy a can of Mountain Dew when passing by, but today they had a range of energy drinks that caught my eye.

The Street Fighter: Dragon Punch Energy Drink features Ken on the bright red can. I haven’t tasted it yet but I know I’ll be buzzing after – it contains 120mg on caffeine. I’m guessing that the Ghostbusters Ectoplasm drink is green. If not, I want a refund. Then there’s the brilliantly titled Quagmire’s Cherry Pop. Giggidy. There was also a Resident Evil T-Virus energy drink. I don’t think I’d be alone in saying that the idea of buying something with the word ‘virus’ on the can is slightly off-putting.

You can rest assured that none of these cans will end up in the recycling bin.

    The Ghostbusters drink wasn’t very nice – it didn’t taste that much different from Red Bull.

    Quagmire’s Cherry Pop wasn’t bad. A bit like super sweet Cherry Tango. Or Cherry 7UP.
