You all know that I'm a sucker for any new coffee related item. I love Starbucks because they keep coming out with new stuff even though my inner hippie me says "Damn the Man! Support Independent Coffee Houses!" But, hippie-self, do independent coffee houses have this???

I saw this beast the other day in a 7-11 and just had to have it. I had a lot of homework to do and i thought this giant energy drink would be the perfect tutor. Granted, it was kind of expensive (I think it came to 2.69 or something) but its 15 oz! and Its coffee AND energy! And, in fact, its quite good. You can find a comprehensive review here.

My only qualm is that SBux is seemingly copping a feel on its one branding by calling this a "doubleshot," when in fact they already make a smaller beverage that's meant to be espresso and cream and comes in 6.5 ounce cans (left). Kinda weird, right?

Has anyone else tried this new energy drink? Any thoughts about it?
