Twilight-themed energy drinks thankfully banned in Canada
When it comes to following the vampire diet, local Twilight fans are being deprived. Canada Customs is holding up a proverbial garlic clove to American company Harcos by clamping down on its new line of Twilight-themed energy drinks. Both Blood Potion and Zombie energy shots have been nixed by our national border patrol. The concoctions—which come in blood transfusion-style baggies and contain twice as much caffeine as a can of Red Bull—come from Harcos “laboratories” in California. “Canadian Customs is very strict with caffeine products,” Harcos spokesperson Jenni Huang told the Toronto Star, adding that a number of shipments have already been halted at the border.
For once, our Canadian prudishness suits us just fine. The last thing that rabid teenage Twi-hards need is more caffeine, lest the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob discord escalate to out-and-out warfare.
