We all know it
As a teenager, I regularly drank the 35p Euro-shopper energy drink, that one that is sold in every independent corner shop in the UK. As I’m sure many of you have tried it at some point in your life, and probably used to drink far too much of it, because as a younger teenager, you were unaware of the damage that drinks like this do to your body and also you were too young to buy alcohol, so caffeine tended to be that filler.
I no longer drink things like this, because as an adult I understand how harmful they are to your health. The sugar alone is nearing your daily recommended limit from one can, let alone the caffeine and other chemicals. This stuff really is toxic, addictive and dangerous, and if you drink too much of it, it is possible for it to induce heart problems, both short and long-term. And, for all intents and purposes, it tastes horrible. It is a cheap, off-brand knock off of Red Bull, and really is at the lowest end of the market. The taste is distinctly unnatural; you really taste and smell the chemicals. But should you want a quick pick me up in the morning, there probably are few things more effective than this, and for 30P, who could complain? There are many other off brands, cheap energy drinks, such as Boost, Emerge, Tiger and Blue Bolt, but there are few that have had the cultural impact of the 35P energy drink.
Some of you may be confused as to what my motivation is to write this article, well, put simply, the 35P energy drink is something that we all know and are familiar with, many people my age grew up with it as part of their childhood, the chosen drink of the hyperactive teenager who has nothing better do to. And this is the first time since its release that there has been any change in its pricing and I felt that it needed reporting on, as there is no record of this anywhere else on the internet.

There is also a lot of mainstream media and governmental buzz surrounding energy drinks and sugary drinks in general, due to the sugar tax and the sharp rise in diabetes over the last 20 years, and there are campaigns to only sell Energy Drinks to over 16s and I definitely agree with this law, as many children and teenagers are unable to understand the health damage that it does.
