Confirmed sighting: Pepsi Max 3.0 "Chi"/ CTU-24 Energy Drink
Posted: 17:47 Thu 20-Dec-2007. Location: (CTU-24) 94p/ 440ml can in Camden Morrisons.
"Silas" reports: "Was offered a tasting of this ["Ginseng and Guarana"-enhanced sequel to Pepsi Max Cino] in Kingston on Saturday. It's Tuesday and I've just managed to get the horrible taste out of my mouth. Far too sweet - despite being 0 calories - and it has an awful smell. No image as they're still in the 'testing on consumers' stage and haven't even decided on the final name." So, instead the photo is of the apparently ready-for-prime-time CTU-24 Energy Drink, believed to be the UK's first fruit-flavoured sparkling beverage with counter-terrorist abilities - tie-in fans can also sup on the official Resident Evil T-Virus Antidote Energy Drink (£1.45 from Cybercandy) or, from cult box-office flop "Idiocracy", The Thirst Mutilator: Brawndo.
...Still, in slightly less occupation-specific refreshments: "Creme Brulee Latte too grown-up, insufficiently sweet. However, the Toffee Nut variant more than makes up for this with teeth-itchingly claggy effect. Marvellous. Now watch them discontinue it just when I get most dependent on it," decided "Chubworth" regarding Starbucks' latest - while "TalkShowHost" seems to have found the previously Tesco-exclusive Make Mine A Builder's Tea in ASDA (£1.28 for 80 bags), establishing: "The unique selling points of this Builders Tea are that it is really strong and that it was developed with builders as tasters. This does not actually sound as if it is the most appealing of pedigrees, but if I know anything about builders it's that they like a good cup of tea."
"The fact that it brews within 20 seconds is quite true, left any longer and it becomes similar to the classic cafe tea that many an elderly person would categorise as 'stewed'. Just because it brews faster it is no less tasty than any other teas that I have tasted. In fact it is a real advantage that it does taste the same as some of the more expensive teas as it is quite marginally cheaper. It will definitely be the regular tea for me from now on, especially since each pack comes with a useful building tip so that you can ruin your house attempting to follow it."

Comment: Just bought some and as a fan of energy drinks I have to say this is by far the worst I have ever had, it tastes like blood orange and grapefruit with no sugar followed by the complete removal of moisture from your mouth leaving a most awful dry burning minty after taste, any attempt to drink more results in a burning of the thought.
