Flashback Friday: Adventures in Coffee

My love for 7-11 and new products has been well documented on the pages of this blog. This Flashback Friday travels back to February 2007, when I tried "Energy Coffee" from the 'Sev.

9am: Out of all of the unnecessary new products I've come across, this may be the unnecessariest: Energy coffee.

Yes that's coffee. Seen it for a week or two, but have been hesitant to try it. Anyone who's been on the receiving end of one of my caffeine fits will tell you that the less energy there is in my coffee, the better. But you can only withstand the pull of the weasel for so long so this morning, I'm having my first cup.

It's actually not bad. Kind of has that herbal taste that tea does, but it's a pretty good flavor of coffee.

But if you find me massacred on my office floor, you'll know why.

2pm: Made it past lunch without jumping out of my skin and/or annoying everyone around me. Looks like Energy Coffee has passed the test.

But would I buy it again...?

3:15pm: Digesting lunch and crashing hard. Beginning to question the wisdom of "energy coffee."

Energy Coffee. I have heard that coffee has the opposite effects on kids. I think I'm going to go give my three year old some of this new energy coffee drink.

If you find ME dead, you'll know why.

Energy coffee? Seriously?

Do you put Liquid cream and Sweetened sugar in it?

I took a caffeine pill in college once. ONCE. Needed to pull and all-nighter to finish a paper. Instead, I spent several hours sweating and trembling and praying to Bob that I would live to see the dawn.

I ADORE coffee. I probably drink too much of it, truth be told. But I'll take mine with just a dash of sugar and a smidge of cream, please. Hold the "energy". :)
