Surge Soda Is Coming Back!


A relic of those innocent days in the late ’90s when we called carbs “carbos” and advertised their presence in a soft drink like it was a good thing, this bright green bastard child of Mountain Dew and sour Gatorade is about ready to return “due to popular demand.”

I love the idea that there were people specifically demanding this, and wonder how many confused it with Slurm from Futurama. (Which it basically is, though I can’t prove it comes from slug butts, and how dare anyone imply such a thing.). And I want to smack them and say Josta was better. That shit tasted like raspberry yogurt.

The timing sucks. A green energy drink would have been perfect for my Arrow marathon.
