I dunno why exactly. This was taken off the description page. I think because its so strong. Plus as it says the FDA didn't like the name lol.
* One can has the same kick as 3 and a half cans of Red Bull® Energy Drink!
* Renamed to "Insert Name Here" as the FDA took a disliking to the original name of "Cocaine".
* Currently, cans are repackaged with a plastic label that hides the original Cocaine label underneath - small cut at the seal will with a knife or scissors will let you see the old label. Eventually the new label will be printed on the can.
No Energy Drink "Crash"
With Cocaine you don't crash like from normal energy drinks as the drink features high quantities of the natural sugar, Dextrose. A monosaccharide (simple sugar), Dextrose (also known as Glucose) is a natural carbohydrate that is very easy for the body to use and is used heavily by the body during aerobic and anaerobic respiration. Since your body doesn't have to "work" to use the sugar, it eliminates the "crash" when the supply runs out.
Just the essentials are included in Cocaine.
You'll notice the ingredients list is pretty short; this is because of Cocaine's efficient design. Cocaine is intended as a straight energy drink, it has a strong, but not excessively sweet flavor, and as designed, it delivers a lot of energy. By working with natural flavoring, Cocaine achieves its unique flavor without an excess of chemicals and sweeteners.
Does Cocaine contain cocaine?
No. Nor do we, the manufacturers or anybody in the FDA recommend, condone, encourage or applaud the use of illicit drugs.
Why was it labeled Cocaine?
The manufacturers thought it was funny. We did too. The FDA didn't.
