Speedo Gas is a horribly seedy gas station near me, one which I usually don't like to patronize. However the thirst pains from my steel horse force me to make the unfortunate decision to stop by the Speedo Gas station to fill my immediate petroleum needs. Once inside the beverage cooler informs me that contents are on sale, via a rather unprofessionally made hand written neon sign. So I peruse. What do I find? Rip it Energy Fuel. So with all too expensive gas and this yet unrated discounted energy drink, I push the eject button on a store that would creep out even the most weather beaten.
Rip It Energy Fuel Citrus X is today's review. I can't help but chuckle at the redundant nature of the drinks name, and wonder how anyone thought the words "energy" and "fuel" should go together. Perhaps this is a small peek into what this concoction tastes like. I look elsewhere around the label to get a handle on what exactly Rip It has to offer, and find little of note. A website is advertised, (I won't be going there), and I'm told to stay away if I have a medical condition. Also I'm told this stuff is a "wild ride." I'm sure it is, but that isn't necessarily a good thing in my mind. By the way the main ingredient here is High Fructose Corn Syrup, do with that what you will.
So I crack open the can and take a sip. This tastes like a mixture of Mello Yellow and stale Tang, but infinitely worse. I'm sure there is some redeeming quality about this stuff but I can't seem to find it. Just for shiggles I drink about a quarter of the can to see if my Rip It experience will get better. No and no again! Folks I can't help but think that I've been ripped off by Rip It Energy Fuel. Sorry drain in my kitchen sink, I promise this won't happen again. On second thought, maybe the drain is the best place for Rip It.
Final Review: Do Not Buy! Rip It Energy Fuel Citrus X tastes gross, pure and simple. Not to mention the lame name and the hideous color of the can.
