Amp is an energy drink
made by the fine people who gave us Mountain Dew
. A few years ago, there was a blurb
in The Onion
that explained how Mountain Dew led users
to go on to harder beverage
s. How right they were. This concoction
might now be my favorite beverage, as the original Mountain Dew is getting a little too bland
for my adult tastes; a fact that was breaking my heart
until I found this.
Mountain Dew's "Amp" comes in a spiffy 8.4 fl oz can with, get this, a GREEN TAB to open it with. It is also filled with several B vitamins to compliment my vegan lifestyle. Faithful to the original yet nutritionally pointless soda, it contains oodles of caffeine, Yellow 5, and, yes, brominated vegetable oil. It also comes with the hefty price tag of about $2/can, much like a drink at the bar. I feel like a grown up now.
