Bring out the gamer in you and experience the ultimate gaming taste!
Pacman drink is a classic drink coming in a great looking can. You can’t fight the ghosts all day long unless you have the right amount of caffeine, and Pacman is simply the answer. For those of you who expect a cherry flavor, you might be a little unimpressed. But definitely, it is an all new taste.
2. Donkey Kong
Jungle juice is not anymore the liquor mix! With the Donkey Kong Jungle Juice which was introduced back in 2008, jungle juice gets an all new definition. The pink bubblegum flavor is an interesting idea as a beverage. Though not really very energetic, the 8.4 oz cans did cheer up the market.
3. Nintendo Super Mario Bros
Nintendo did not seem to be satisfied with just Super Mario Bros – and so they came up with Power Up Energy Drink, their most delicious fantasy. Tasting like blue raspberry, the drink was a super hit in market. Of course, I miss the mushroom shaped bottles!
4. DragonBall Z
DragonBall Z power boost energy drink is yet another video game tie-in. each can is filled with 8.4 oz of sweet red energy. It would have been appreciable if the drink was more of fruit juice than the caffeine blend. At all, it is market for an age group of four and above.
5. Resident Evil
The T-Virus antidote is a canned energy drink that was released as a part of promotion of Resident Evil. Whether or not it succeeded its undertaking is extraneous as the drink offered an excellent feed to the taste buds. And sure enough, in case of a zombie outbreak you have the antidote not far from your local store. What an idea!
6. Halo 3
Here is one example to prove that it is not simply the taste but the game that matters. Halo 3 Mountain Dew was in market as a limited edition in promotion with the release of Halo 3 Game. The drink was a citrus- cherry flavor, and have no doubt: gamers did try out the drink as they say for the “ultimate gaming experience”.
7. Street Fighter
This cherry flavored drink should give you all the energy that you need for the day. It definitely gives you the power to punch and super combo your way through the day just like Ken or Guile. The can is modeled to have a fresh and beguiling look. You can pick up a 24 pack of this great drink for $64.98.
8. Final Fantasy XIII Elixir
Coming in 16 collectible cans, Final Fantasy XIII ‘Elixir’ drink has additional B vitamins and caffeine to team you in your game. It may not taste perfect at first, but then once it goes down, it is going to give you the correct amount of energy to keep you going and liking the drink! The ones prior in the series were not exactly Elixir but Potions, yet they did score well in the market.
Getting inspiration from the long list of gamer drinks is yet another energy drink in store- Rockman E Can Drink. Not to get you baffled, here is the small information that Mega man is called Rock man in Japan. Looking closely like an energy cell, the can has a symbolic E on it, thanks to the freaky design. Sure enough, it does fall in the list of collectible cans.
10. Gears of War Imulsion Drink
