These days, it seems like everybody is addicted to something. At JACK FM, we’re addicted to Playing What We Want, although we’re still waiting for this to be recognized as a legal addiction. Hey, if we could give up [lastfm link_type=”similar_artist_radio”]Bon Jovi [/lastfm]we would! He just sounds so good…

Today, it seems that America’s drinking addiction has finally kicked the coffee and is now slamming the

power drink. We had no idea the public was so crazy over these aluminum wonders. For the longest time, we thought Red Bulls were Rocky Mountain Oysters. Now we know it’s nothing more than a million heaping tablespoons of sugar and caffeine extract! Harmless!

It seems that you can’t turn around without seeing a different power drink begging your allegiance. Let us help you decide which power drinks are right for you.

Energy Drinks -
Red Bull, Monster, Rock Star, 5 Hour Energy

When you’re feeling down and out for the count, reaching for one of these drinks gives you that extra boost of energy to make it through to the end. Whether it’s getting you ready for your presentation at work or staying awake for that musical your girlfriend is making you attend, these energy drinks keep you focused and fun. And they taste great – this is, if you’re into that whole liquid pixie stick kinda thing.

Alcoholic Energy Drinks-
4LOKO, Sparks, Joose

These drinks are reserved and locked up in a cabinet for a special occasion. Raging at home with some close friends or partying til the wee hours of the morning, these alcoholic energy drinks are potent and effective. Causing what some call a “wide-awake drunk,” chugging one of these is a commitment. Not only will you be the life of the party, you will also be the only one streaking down Main St. at 4am when everyone else is passed out.

Anti-Energy Drinks-
Chillout, Relax Drank, Slow Cow

You’ve had a hectic day at work, you forgot to pick up the kids after practice, and you need to meet your boss for drinks in an hour. Try one of these Anti-Energy drinks, guaranteed to make you stop and smell the roses (even if there are none around). These natural libations are equivalent to stealing one of your roommate’s Xanax. You’ll be feeling focused, relaxed, and on top of your game after a couple of ounces of these bad boys.

Marijuana Soft Drinks-
Canna Cola, Grape Ape, Orange Kush

Gotta leave room for the medicated user, right? These soft drinks (or Soda Pots) are available to those who can’t smoke but still need the THC to battle that Restless Leg Syndrome… so about every stoner with a pot card has tried this at least once. These beverages will flip you around and knock you sideways – hope you have a bean bag chair around! Sit back, relax, turn it, drop out… do whatever. It doesn’t look like you’ll be leaving the apartment anytime soon, brother.
