a bolt from the blue


Well. I just got back from a late afternoon shopping spree with my son. We picked up some pre-owned PlayStation 2 games – are you reading this, Rockstar ? – and on the way back we stopped off in a Sainsbury\’s for some badly needed Thursday night groceries.

As a result, I can now officially announce the winner of ib\’s budget energy drink of the week. For too long now top prize has gone to Tesco for their Red Bull mockery, Kick, but the gloves are off. At a mere 10p more per 250ml tin, Sainsbury\’s Blue Boltonly 49p! – nearly sends even the premium brigade shuffling off down the aisle in shame.

In fact, I\’ll go out on a limb and suggest it\’s actually more delectable than Red Bull, and, brothers and sisters, I ought to know.


So there we have it. Blue Bolt is hands down winner. A vegan KO with added taurine and caffeine. Mmmmm. And just a hint of bubblegum.

More here. This individual has an entire site devoted to the celebration of energy drinks. And I thought I was addicted to supermarket sludge.

How much fun can you stand without adding alcohol ?
