So earlier, like 8pm-ish I was thirsty and bored and the 7-11 is only a block away so I decided to go for it. I got some vitamin water(the xxx kind is tasty), a diet coke, and i always like to try something new anytime I'm getting drinks so I picked up Spike Shooter.
the can looks cool enough, but at first I thought it was kind of lame cause theres all of these warning on the can like 'limit to only 1 per day' and 'do not use if under 18 or elderly or on any medications' etc etc. just a bunch of marketing bs.
so i get home and figure to try it out, not thinking anything about it because I drink random drinks all the time. Before I started drinking I noticed that there's no sugar and no calories. Now this is strange to me, because the only things that have ever given me alot of energy without sugar are the 5-hour energy shots. So immediately I'm a little more worried, but not alot because my odds have been most energy drinks are just hyper carbonated mt. dew.
first sip...whoa hold on, this doesnt taste like red bull, awesome. what it does taste like is a bit like those 5 hour energy drinks though, kinda in the after taste. but it actually tastes good, but after experience I can taste the energy. I down half the can and sit back to watch some colbert report from yesterday. Eventually get through 3/4ths the can.
15 minutes later...wtf I'm sweating. My girlfriend says she's going to bed and I say ' i'll pass right now'. 5 minutes later I have a case of the full on jitters.
1 hour later: Still a bit jitters and I'll be honest think I was trippin balls. This is very confusing, I drink this kind of shit all the time, but my heart is goin ape tits for some reason and I'm sweating my balls off. Around this time I go and grab my vitamin water and start slamming it because I know all this sweating and jitters is going to dehydrate me.
So I start googling this thing, apparently this is the strongest shit you can buy on accident. I actually thought this was just another energy drink, it doesnt look all the different from everything else. This shit should be restricted to GNC, not in 7-11. I can usually down Monster or Rockstar drinks as much as I can and no effects. Random energy shot things are usually hit or miss with sometimes giving me energy, but nothing like this. It feels like the devil came in my heart valve. Either way, it's 2:40 in the morning and im just starting to calm down. Fucking ridiculous. I still have 1/4th the can sitting here and I'll maybe try it before work tomorrow, but only that much, ever.
