It has been no secret to most long term visitors to this site we are super fans of Bawls high-caffeinated soda. It has been a staple of LAN parties everywhere for nearly two decades. Earlier this year, the company announced a new flavor was being added to their soda lineup, Cherry Cola.

Bawls was nice enough to provide us a case of their soda for this review. What do you say we try it? Just be aware we are going to say Bawls a lot…

Stay tuned we might be doing more game streaming this week with our supply of Bawls at our side!

Weeks earlier, Rockstar Energy Drink announced a promotion where they would offer exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content in specially marked cans of Rockstar Energy Drink. A few weeks ago, we reviewed one of the very few cans we could find on sale. After several weeks of searching, we finally found ANOTHER specially marked can of Rockstar Energy Drink, this time in a can of Energy Punch, a flavor we have never tried.

So here’s our fist ever taste of Rockstar Energy Punch. Has the search been worth it?

Gears 5 is out now for PC and Xbox One.

Sit back and relax because Maniac is going to do something different for today’s episode of Maniac’s Kitchen. He’s going to tell a story of the first time he had Japanese food and what a unique experience it was. We didn’t have sushi. We didn’t have hibachi. This…was something else.

Please post a comment below if you know the name of what kind of dining experience this was or what you thought of this video!

Maniac’s Kitchen – Rockstar Energy Drink Gears 5 Promotion Taste Test September 29, 2019

Earlier this month, we reported that Rockstar Energy Drink was partnering with Microsoft to offer free codes for exclusive Gears 5 downloadable content (DLC) to players who purchase specially marked cans of the beverage. However, in the time since we wrote that bit of news it has been next to impossible for us to find those marked cans of the beverage in any of our local shops or retail stores.

Eventually, we were able to find ONE flavor of Rockstar Energy Drink that had the Gears 5 marking in our area, this one is called the Pure Zero flavor (due to the fact it advertises it has 0 calories). We never tried REG before, so we decided to give it a taste test on camera to see how well it stacks up against other beverages.

Gears 5 is out now for Xbox One and PC.

Welcome back to Maniac’s Kitchen where we share recipes and review all kinds of gaming food. It’s not my birthday but I couldn’t resist checking out Cold Stone Creamery, the ice cream shop known for mixing a whole assortment of toppings into their creamy ice cream.

In conjunction with Nintendo to promote the recent release of Super Mario Maker 2, Cold Stone has released two limited-time menu options. Today, we’re going to review the Rainbow Sprinkle Road Cake, which is clearly inspired by Nintendo’s Mario Kart franchise. Let’s see how it tastes!

Cold Stone says they will personalize your cake with any name you wish when you order it. We chose to get the smallest version of the cake since nobody but me seemed interested in eating it. If you need a bigger cake for a large party, larger round cakes can be made.

However, this is a gaming website so we’re going to put our own spin on the drink. That means it will have lots (and lots) of sugar!

Welcome back to Maniac’s Kitchen, where we review and share recipes for some of the best foods for gamers. Today, we’ll be talking about a staple of the Otaku diet, Pocky.

I’ve seen Pocky sold in large quantities at anime and fan conventions for the past decade, because it’s from Japan and tastes great. I never tried it myself until ConnectiCon 2015. Now, it’s common to see Pocky sold in local corner stores, and I’ve got a new flavor to try. Let’s see how we like Pocky Almond Crush.
