Sparks 6.0 vs 7.0

Paul got in some skiing last weekend along with some Sparks Swigging and had a chance to compare the 6.0 varietal to the 7.0.

Sparks 6.0 vs 7.0

As I understand it, the number stands for the alcohol percentage. As Paul points on on Flickr, the 6.0 is orange while the 7.0 looks like something that ended up on Bill Murray in Ghostbusters.

I haven’t tried the 7.0, but have rocked the 6.0 hard in the past at a wedding. It did not disappoint.

The Sparks Backlash Begins

ABC News is reporting that some states are attacking Sparks. For those of you who haven’t tried it, Sparks is like a big can of Red Bull & Vodka. A caffeinated energy drink with alcohol.

Energy Drink Buzz Kill

Apparently, they think advertising a product with alcohol in it as an energy drink is misleading since it gives the impression that the drink is healthy.

However, what they don’t seem to realize is that promoting any energy drink as healthy is probably the bigger issue. Or are we supposed to believe that Sparks would be healthy for us if it didn’t contain alcohol?
