Forget regular old energy drinks - sustained energy is the thing now, or so those 5-Hour Energy drink commercials would have us believe.
Slap Energy is advertised as a "multi-stage energy supplement," and its manufacturers claim that an energy "sensation" builds as you drink it.
Maybe we're just jaded from consuming so many caffeinated products, but Slap Energy just didn't kick our butts. The taste isn't that great, either. The can says, "lightly carbonated," but it tastes like flat berry soda. And it's impossible for any drink containing this much sugar to be refreshing, because it just tends to make us thirstier.
