Nuclear Energy Powders
Nuclear Energy Powders were developed by the folks at Harcos as a way to keep gamers energized with a quick powdered candy loaded with caffeine.
Put on your HAZMAT suits because Harcos, and the nutters at their laboratory are back with nuclear vengeance. The white coat clad energy lovers have knocked heads and come up with three flavours of truly awesome caffeine impregnated sherbet tasting Nuclear Energy Powders.
Now I don’t know about you, but if you’re like me, your life long dream is to ingest chemicals with more electrons then you can shake a stick at… Well these three Energy Powders are about as close are your going to get with out ending up in a white tent like E.T.
- Uranium – “yellow cake flavour”
There seems to be debate over what this is meant to be, I personally think its Vanilla but I could be wrong. Whatever yellow cake is, I like it and out of the three Nuclear Energy Powders it’s the smoothest to eat. Without the acidic after taste of the others it probably suits the sweet tooth, but still an absolute dream to scoff.
- Plutonium – "pear flavour"
This is my second favourite flavour its slight acidic undertone makes it fun to eat, and I can only assume it would be great with any form of shot based drink. Embarrassing as it is to say I actually went an ate a pear to compare the flavour and yes it is indeed pear like, just with that ever sort after sherbet acidity.
- Radium – "Raspberry lemonade flavour"
Ahh, the chemical Holy Grail and also the sherbet grail for me, this Nuclear Energy Powder is fantastic it starts off sweet and then forms into a really rather sour after tone. Whilst I don’t think it tastes or raspberries its great and if I had the choice and could play God, I would make raspberries taste like this!
The ingredients for this are simple as can be, a bit of carbohydrate and lots of caffeine (90mg to be precise). This isn’t trying to sell you energy with the healthy stuff like B vitamins; this is just pure sugary, caffeine fun and lots of it at that.
I was having a great time with these, bare in mind I fell in love with Radium and Plutonium and created my own Ranonium, so I ingested a fair bit of sugar and caffeine and I have to say it was good. There was only a tiny downer after, I would say, 3 or 4 hours and that was it. I’m sure had I had all three Nuclear Energy Powders the effect would have been better. But just bare in mind that these things go down like water, you will be high as a kite before you even realize it.
Whilst I will admit Nuclear Energy Powders won’t be replacing your daily energy drink intake, they are a great laugh and at only £1.90 from TheGeekestLink, I feel confident I can use the word bargain. I would defiantly recommend you give these a go you won’t be disappointed. If anything I hope Nuclear Energy Powders are the start of a revolution in which you can only buy sherbet with caffeine in it.
