Where to Buy

Product Shot 2 The drink also contains the amino acid L-Tyrosine (a mild stimulant) and Yohimbine (weight-loss supplement and treats erectile disfunction). Spike Shooter is the color of blood and aims to have a tastier flavor than other energy drinks.

Born out of the dietary supplement industry, Spike promises to deliver more stimulants and energy than any other energy drink on the market. Perhaps overzealous, SPIKE has raised controversy by being banned from Thomas B. Doherty High School, a high school in Colorado Springs, Colorado, after two students were rushed to the emergency room. Other students complained of symptoms such as heart palpitations, nausea, and vomiting. Following this incident, 7-Eleven stores across Colorado pullled the product from shelves.

It is currently available in test markets in Colorado and Northern California.

Yale: #spike_shooter

One had the same experience as iridered with a large monster. Got shaky, started trembling and was slightly weak. Got home and crashed pretty hard. Last time I ever drink an energy drink.

iridered: #spike_shooter im 16 and weigh 120 lbs. i bought this drink here in the chicagoland area and took it on a pretty empty stomach. got real shaky and had problems standing with my knees trembling like mad, and my hands were too weak to grip much anything. Id drink it again, but make sure i ate a nice meal beforehand. Jun 24, 08

hyperxcrazy749: #spike_shooter this drink was great but after a few hours i felt incredibly horrible. i had to get taken to the hosiptal. they shoud id 14 year olds who go to buy it and are 4'11 and 98 pounds. obviously if theres been reports about teens abusing it its a little stupid to have them selling it to teens. i was shaking and everything. but it tastes great, i want anohter one.

xmyowndelusionx: #spike_shooter owensdaddy19: im also from ga. if youre really bent on trying this shit... well "Temptations" in Hardeeville, SC sells it. its pretty expensive-- $4 a can, but the stuff is potent. it is like doing lines of coke, from what i have been told. personally ive never done coke, but im a small girl, and after two of these, i didnt sleep for two days and was still lit like a firecracker, and got VERY VERY sick. Temptations is the only place ive ever known of that sells this stuff. Its right across the talmadge bridge on the left, just past savannah. good luck bud. btw, i wrote this assuming that the "19" is your age. You cant get into temptations if youre a minor. Jul 20, 07

owensdaddy19: #spike_shooter hi i'm new to this site but it looks interesting. this sounds like a decent energy drink. i live in Ga. and it has not got here yet. i am waiting. when cocaine was avilable i chugged three in a row my first time and paid for it with heart burn for the next hour and a half. i was a little jittery but about 2 hours later i laid down and took a four hour nap. would this work for me?

Omar: #spike_shooter I always fell asleep in class too. Except instead of trying to fight it I just slept! Why not? It's not like you actually learn anything in class anyway. When I got to Uni I went to MAYBE 50% of my classes, especially in later years. And ended up doing much better. Class is an obstacle to learning. Apr 5, 07

Erik: #spike_shooter So what's the consensus on this drink? Is it too dangerous? Or are the dangers overhyped by the media? The company claims kids abused the drink and thats why they got sick. CNN claims it's the devil incarnate. Apr 5, 07

mikeyb805: #spike_shooter I tried it, great taste, small can and was off the wall for a few hours at work. It tells you to try half the can which may be a good idea for those of you who stayed awake for long hours. Great dietary supplement. Mar 25, 07

Amanie: #spike_shooter Hey, your post just gave me an idea. These energy drinks should do an Ad campaign where real people say all the things they can do after drinking their drink. Mar 21, 07

Eduffy: #spike_shooter tasty and effective you can have the equivalent of 3 cups of coffee in a couple of minutes, which isn't enough to make your hair stand on end, but plenty to get you through the whole day. Mar 16, 07
