There's no disputing it: Surge is back, in a big way. It tastes like a citrus freeze-pop, except melted down and filled with an EXTREME! amount of bubbles. Now, I'm not sure if my 7-year-old self had quite as developed of a palate as present-day me does, but he was way into this stuff, and I can see why. Surge packs a whopping 56g of sugar per tallboy can. That's right. It comes in tallboys now. EXTREME!
For those of you looking for a silver lining of health in this, you're in luck: one of the ingredients of Surge is "orange juice concentrate" (granted, it's the sixth ingredient down on the list, after "natural flavors", "citric acid", and "maltodextrin"). But for those of you just seeking the quickest sugar rush imaginable, it's definitely your
golden greenish ticket. Twenty minutes after drinking it, I'm having trouble writing this sentence. And it's awesome.
Mom and Dad -- I love you. Sorry for drinking all that Surge back in the day. If I make it, please send more Surge.
