Look What Happened While We Were Distracted by Hillary and Obama

posted by on February 8 at 9:30 AM

Snickers Charged happened.


It’s a Snickers bar laced with caffeine, taurine, and B-Vitamins.

What the fuck?

It has 60mg of caffeine in it, which is five more than a 12 oz. can of Mountain Dew. It has 250mg of taurine, which is one quarter of the amount found in an 8.3 oz. can of Red Bull. It comes with a warning label: “Not recommended for children, pregnant women or people sensitive for caffeine.” And there’s a scary rhino on the wrapper.

It tastes just like a regular Snickers bar.

No, really. What the fuck?

I bet it sooo does not taste like a regular Snickers bar.

Hope they taste better than that Gawd-awful "Coke+Plus", similarly fortified with vitamins and minerals, which has a flavor reminiscent of cola heavily laced with cheap cough syrup.

There gets to be a point where you might as well just do blow.

Then again, you can probably pick up turbocharged candy bars 3/99 cents with your QFC card.

You spelled rhinoceros wrong, but i guess you aren't paid to be an english teacher. you are paid to be a kick ass journalist.

@2: *shudder* My god that stuff is evil.

@4: I know, I really butchered the word. I fixed it and just said rhino because even spell check didn't know how to spell rhinoceros.

I'm a really bad speller. Especially when it comes to prehistoric species.

What the fuck happened to my Oompas?

Life: Now with twice the sugar and three times the caffeine!

It's interesting that they display the bars with wine. Columbia (or whatever brand those bottles are) can't be psyched about that. Is Chardonnay + Snickers Charged the new Sparks?

They are just fighting a rearguard action against the superior Mint Three Musketeers - light, fluffy, and mint.

"Snickers, now it really fucking satisfies."

@3: But for best results, you need to do the new caffeine-ginseng-and-viagra enhanced blow.

Wow! I could really use one of those candy bars right away! AND they should sell those at the psych wards...then all the people on sedating meds would be so much happier! ;)

I really wonder when they're going to introduce powdered caffeine blow. Any time now...

It'll make you wreck your pants like the Incredible Hulk!
