has launched Snackspot, an absolutely hilarious blog devoted to new developments in British junk-food.
"Lee Maguire" spotted Red Bull Sugar Free (90p, a newsagents in London), commenting that it "tastes exactly like regular Red Bull - I assume it's for people who want energy, but not *too much* energy". Disappointingly, he failed to provide a picture, so loses out to the slightly more photogenic prospect of Private Energy, a "premium-priced ginseng-enhanced energy drink" from the (Netherlands-based?) adult entertainment company. The drink's imminent UK launch will presumably incorporate the same "attractive collector-style cans featuring some of Private's most popular stars", while the ginseng content is intended to enhance "adult activities" (ie, voting? driving a minibus with less than 17 seats and weighing no more than 3.5 metric tonnes?) This shouldn't be confused with the (also imminent) UK arrival of alcoholic "Viagra Pops", like Roxxoff, which have been criticised on the grounds that alcoholic drinks "should not suggest any association with sexual success". Nonetheless, feel free to get in touch with any sightings/ trial results you have of those - or performance enhancements you've noticed with other energy drinks, like Lucozade Solstis or RAC 124.

Ok, it’s not just solar powered. It’s also an anti-theft, waterproof marvel that keeps my phone’s power bar from ever getting into the red.Sure the idea seems obvious now – tuck a gigantic solar powered battery pack into an exposed slot and turn the wearer into a walking energy harvester. Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
Yeah, Bluetooth audio is pretty common these days, so why should you care about these earbuds? Look how happy that woman up above looks. She’s got FRESHeBUDS in. Boom. There’s your reason. She’s also at the beach and it appears to be a very nice day.But for the sake of promotion, wireless earbuds are fast becoming the […]
“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
