My brother-in-law, Dan, has been collecting energy drink cans since he was in junior high. He was way ahead of the energy drink trend. He's tried at least 100 different types of energy drinks.
The last time Andy and I went to his parents' house, Dan and his friends introduced us to G33K B33R. G33K B33R is a caffeinated root beer made by Bawls. As Andy puts it, it's "a unique taste that is pretty much the essence delicious."
According to the Bawls website, G33K B33R is "the first-ever high caffeine root beer, spiked with guarana! G33K B33R has a smooth, refreshing root beer taste with enough caffeine to make it as strong as a cup of coffee. It’s the perfect drink for any gamer, techie, student or root beer fan in need of a tasty Bounce!"
This all sounds amazing right? Except for the part where the universe likes to screw with us. When we first discovered G33K B33R, Andy and I searched all over town. We could barely find any Bawls at all. (what's a girl to do without Bawls?!?!) In the last month as we've looked for G33K B33R, we've noticed steadily declining availability of Bawls. We used to be able to find it at Target, then they stopped carrying it... Our favorite Casey's stopped carrying it...
Last week we finally found some G33K B33R at a Casey's. We bought their last 4 cans of Bawls....and they informed us they were probably not getting any more Bawls, especially G33K B33R. Are you kidding me?!?!?
After tweeting my dismay, BAWLSGuarana replied that I should look at Kum&Gos in the city. Rabble Rabble Rabble. Like I haven't spent enough time looking for gas stations.
So I present to you, The Quest For BAWLS. Andy has made a custom Google map to go on the side of my blog to map out where we find Bawls. Wish us luck. Cuz every girl needs some Bawls.
