Happy Labor Day weekend! As we all get some extra time to spend gaming with friends, it’s always a good idea to keep your beverages cold. Thankfully, the Mythbusters figured out the fastest way to cool our beverages over a decade ago. They discovered an insulated container filled with ice, water and table salt would cool an aluminum can in about five minutes.

Five minutes to cool a can doesn’t sound so bad. However, we’re gamers, and we drink Bawls, which come in 10oz glass bottles. Let’s see if we can chill our bottles just as well!

Coca-Cola has released a special beverage they say is based upon the taste of space itself, Coke Starlight. While not specially marketing itself specifically as a gamer’s drink, Coke products contain sugar and caffeine, so you can be certain gamers have been drinking Coke products for decades.

What do you say Maniac cracks open a bottle of Coke Zero Starlight and see what he thinks about it?

Maniac has been aware of Wonka’s famous Nerds candy for all of his life, but when he visited the supermarket earlier today he saw something new, Nerds Rope.

Nerds has partnered with Wizards of the Coast, the current publishers of Dungeons & Dragons, to offer free digital modules for Nerds candy buyers who redeem their sales receipts on their website. So, to celebrate this promotion, Maniac decided to try this new Nerds Rope for the first time. How does it compare to regular Nerds? Watch and find out.
