Death in a Bottle

Just got my latest update from the CRC, a high-quality kashrut organization based in Chicago. In addition to the nice updates, I noticed some new beverages which now enjoy kashrut certification. (You can see the kashrut information on the CRC Kosher beverage list.) These "energy" drinks, produced by Dr. Pepper, are called Venom Energy Drinks. And get a load of the names of the flavors (I'm not making this up): Black Mambo, Death Adder, Mojave Rattler and Kill Taipan.

Which makes me wonder three things:
1. Who comes up with this stuff?
2. Does it actually sell?
3. Most importantly, are they trying to quench your thirst, or are they really trying to poison you?
