Oh Asian Super Markets

#1 Edited by Korwin (2864 posts) -

So the recent mail bag vid got me thinking about how long it had been since I'd had a Thai Redbull (Krating Daeng) or a Lipovitan D.
 
So ducked down to the local Asian Market and found and bought this.
 
 





Case of 50 bottles :D (74 bucks for that many energy drinks, how can I go wrong RIGHT?).
 
 

I especially love the company name, and the address looks totally fictitious and made up when written in English.

It looks like the boxes fireworks come in.

Man the address in that second picture, that really does look made up. XD
 
Awesome, the main energy drink I consume is Guava Rockstar.

You should consider shipping some to the Giantbomb crew. :P

What I really want to track down is Krating Daeng Cola.

The location where they make this stuff is suprisingly hard to find on google maps.

i'd take 5 or 6 out of that case and ship it to GB. it looks like it could melt through solid steel.

What he should consider is his life, those things look cancerous.

@JonathanMoore: 
 I can confirm that I'm yet to be riddled with cancerous growths.

I approve, real drinks purchases only come in boxes and crates.

That stuff is awesome, just don't mix it with Sake.
Your heart WILL explode.

This is the original Red Bull, the infamous syrup that Jeff and Ryan discussed in a really early podcast. 
 
Personally, I dont like the taste, but my friend swears that it's the only thing that gets him up if he's on call and they call him at 1AM to fix a server.

I remember this. My cousins...or one of my Uncles from Thailand shipped some over to my family here in the US. I don't remember sleeping much after I drank some.

I don't live in America so...How long was it since they changed Red Bull? Some Americans left a case of Red Bull at a hotel i was working at about 5-6 years ago and that tasted wayyy batter than the stuff they sell today (We got Red bull now), and it got me very hyper, energy drinks usually don't get me hyper.
