POP OF THE DAY: Vitamin Energy Tropical Citrus

Category: Energy Drink
Ratings (out of 5)
Taste: 4
Fizziness Factor: 3
Bottle/Can Design: 5
Availability: 3

Like so many of my generation, I was once a Vitamin Water addict. Who was I to say no to those Warhol-bright colors, that Muderer's Row of vitamins, the understated hilarity of that bottle/can copy? After a few months of switching from the yellow one to the red one (and even a brief flirtation with the pink one), I beat my jones for ViWa and moved on to fizzier pastures. But now those wily French-sounding folks at Glaceau have outflanked me.

They've added fizz.

And now we have Vitamin Energy. The yellow can made me expect that VE would taste like the yellow ViWa, which it does—but it also has the chemical tang that you might know from Red Bull and which I think of as the taste of taurine (VE has 2000 mg). It also contains Vitamins B3, B5, and B12 (you sank my battleship!), along with caffeine, Vitamin C, and ribose.

I have to say I was initially put off by the size of the 16-ounce can. Can it be that good if you need so MUCH of it? However, now that I feel it kicking in, I think the buzz it delivers it well worth that extra trip to the bathroom. My major reservation about VE is that it is not listed on the Glaceau website yet, and I have only seen it in one place—but let's assume that Glaceau is going to do right by VE and give it wide release sooner or later. In closing, here's a tidbit from the can:
not recommended for children, pregnant women or people sensitive to caffeine.

recommended for people who have children, those trying to get pregnant or people in search of natural energy.
Funny, right? Now if they'd just learn to capitalize a bit...(Total Score 15/20)

My developer is trying to persuade me to move
to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for about
a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress
content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

I almost never leave comments, but after reading a bunch of responses on
"POP OF THE DAY: Vitamin Energy Tropical Citrus". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of the responses appear as if they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I would like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
