Purple Stuff: Energy Drink Review



When I first saw a poster for "Purple Stuff," I had to tweet about it. Secondarily, I had to text my friends that make racist jokes -(in excellent taste)- so they could have a decent laugh.

I confess that "Purple Stuff" is a name that grabs the attention, so I commend the marketing designers, and the colors stand out over other cans on the energy drink shelves. However, how does this product compare in terms of taste and quality?

Well, I have only myself to blame for ignoring the obvious and purchasing something called "Superliminal." It had a silly name, and I am a silly goose of a human being. The problem was that I assumed that every product bearing the name "Purple Stuff" would actually be purple, regardless of lemon or lime flavor...after all Pepsi had Pepsi Blue and Crystal.

This was not purple at all.

The taste was not exciting. It did not have the stark bites of certain drinks such as "Full Throttle" in the past. Even "Red Bull" has a certain distinct flavor that is able to grab the attention of the consumer, for better or for worse. Carbonation was not overpowering, which I liked, but it lacked enough flavor and strength for total satisfaction.

In the end this was just rather dull.
On the shelf next to all other energy drinks, this one actually boasts the abilities of "calming" effects instead of serving as a hyperactive enhancer. Overall, it had about as strong of a reaction as a can of sprite. In other words "dull."

Will I buy this product again?
Probably.
Why?
Because it is amusing. :P :P
It's a shallow world.

QATFYG:
How often do you drink purple Kool-Aid?

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
