It’s an alien beverage, that’s why. You wouldn’t drink tap water in a foreign country, so why drink stuff from another planet?
Kidding aside, this Romulan ale is right up there with the Star Trek urn and Enterprise pizza cutter, utterly ridiculous and super fun. We’re not sure about the taste though. This particular brand of Romulan Ale is a flavored energy drink, suspiciously blue and 100% non-alcoholic. Can it do Red Bull one better? Nope, but Red Bull doesn’t have a fictitious socio-cultural background to fall back on, either.
Oh Goodie! More from the product page:
Romulan Ale Star Trek Energy Drink will not make you drunk. What it will do is ramp up your body for anything. It’s got vitamins (like B6 and B12), ginseng, and loads of caffeine (84 mg per easy-to-drink-in-one-sitting-because-it-tastes-so-good can), all wrapped up in a yummy berry taste. And it’s blue. Aaaand, it comes in a six pack, just like you’d get at your local Romulan Quickie Mart. Romulan Ale Star Trek Energy Drink is full of alien technology and taste to keep you awake and alert. You know, so you can keep on trekkin’ (sorry, we had to).
Unlike the mustachioed dude on the promotional pic, you don’t have to don Federation uniform and a cocked eyebrow to enjoy this. Just be thirsty, tired, and badly needing an energy boost. Is it possible to make a cocktail out of this neon blue drink? Maybe. If Romulan Ale is what you need for a party, however, buy a six pack (or more) for $14.99 at Think Geek.Filed Under: Humor
