Meanwhile, on the Other Side…


Another one of those “I wish we hadn’t marketed that well” items is the whole energy drink category. I’m not a doctor, but it’s hard for me to believe you can pour pounds of high-fructose corn syrup, caffeine, and a melange of sketchy chemicals into a population’s digestive system without consequences down the road.

I pop the top of a cool Mountain Dew Code Red when I’m driving long distances at night, so I’m not unsympathetic to the occasional need, but judging by the number of brands and what I see in shopping carts at the szupermarket, well, the word for Benjamin Braddock in Hungary would be “insulin.”
