Halloween 2022: Oct. 15ᵗʰ – Ghost Energy

No, not the supernatural kind. These ghosts are full on caffeine bombs. When Freddy’s on the prowl and you absolutely CANNOT fall asleep, reach for these ecto-coolers. Plus, they’re Halloween candy flavored. Click the pic and stay up all night with me!

I never imagined there would be a Halloween friendly energy drink, but here we are. The Ghost whatever company started as some kind of supplement for gym rats, and those same ill-informed people now buy Ghost Energy as a pre-workout drink. It isn’t. It’s just caffeine water. Any benefit you feel when you workout is a caffeine buzz combined with your own susceptibility to the placebo effect. This isn’t a workout drink. You’re just stupid.

Being called Ghost Energy isn’t enough to be a Halloween friendly product. I thought that all of these were flavored like Halloween candy, which is enough to get them in an article. When I got home, I realized I’d accidentally picked up a few non-Halloween stowaways. Mango is one of my favorite fruits, so I was okay with it. But this was not a good mango flavor. It tasted more like something that had been sitting in the fridge next to a mango and had picked up some of the smell. Not offensive, but still a fail. 5 out of 10.

This could be a lemon flavor, or a lime flavor, or, like Mountain Dew, a weird ass non-orange tasting drink based on orange juice. It left me with no impression to speak of. 6 out of 10.

Damn, this was a nice change! It tastes just like an orange cream push pop. 8 out of 10!

I don’t know how to rate this. All blue raspberry flavored products taste exactly the same. I don’t know if there’s any difference in the flavoring of this drink and Sour Patch Kids. I’m gonna give this a 6 out of 10, because I believe this is kind of a cop out. You could label this same drink with the name of literally ANY blue raspberry candy and it would still be accurate. There’s nothing uniquely Sour Patch about this one, kids.

This was good, but hard to identify. Is this a strawberry/cherry drink? Is there raspberry in this? What the hell am I drinking? I feel like a teacher who doesn’t know how to grade a paper. So I’m going to do what they do and just give it a C+. It’ll all come out in the wash. 7 out of 10.

This tastes like sour watermelon, but it doesn’t pack enough punch to be considered a Warhead. Good, but watered down. 6 out of 10.

Damn, this tastes EXACTLY like Swedish Fish. I don’t like cherry, but this is damned good. I think of all the Ghost Energy drinks, this is the most successful at replicating the candy flavor. Good work, Ghost bottling people. 8 out of 10!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I can feel my fucking teeth vibrating. I have to go not sleep for a thousand years.
