The good folks over at Starbucks are sponsoring a contest right here on Everyview and hooking five readers up with some pretty sweet prizes! It’s easy and free to enter (so long as you follow the rules included after the jump) and all you have to do is leave a comment for your chance to win a prize pack from Starbucks themselves.
The theme this time around is one anyone with a job will be easily able to relate with, at least if you are even remotely like any of us Everyview writers. Simply let us know what you do while at work to make it look like you’re working when you are actually not doing a damn thing to benefit your employing company.
We all do it, so it’s nothing to be ashamed of. And hey, maybe your technique for laziness could help some of the less skilled bums get by a little better.
Check out the rest of this article after the jump to read the rules and see the prizes you could win! Continue reading →
All over Europe they’ve got these cool little coffee shops that serve killer espresso with creamy foam on top. Our madman in R&D figured out how to get that same smooth texture by injecting potent imported espresso with Nitrous Oxide. The we up’d the ante by adding out “tried and true” Monster energy blend.
X-PRESSO MONSTER has a rich creamy texture, imported espresso flavor, and a Monster buzz that just won’t quit. Made in Holland but only available in the USA. What a country…
The following review is the work of Ryan, site administrator over at GrubGrade.com. This entry was the winner in our Starbucks Contest, so make sure you congratulate him and check out his site!
I’ll admit, I’m not much of a coffee drinker or an energy drink kind of person. I have dabbled from time to time but I’m definitely no expert. I find that energy drinks that I’ve had in the past do help in boosting my alertness but I’ve never been a fan of the taste. I feel as though energy drinks place me in some alternate universe where I’m Mega Man….half machine, half boy and I’m fueling up my power cells in order to defeat Dr. Wiley. If you’re confused, please forgive my geeky early-1990’s Nintendo mascot references. The bottom line is this, I am rarely compelled enough to try cold coffee or energy drinks. I felt that this Everyview/Starbucks contest was a good chance for me to get out of my box and try something new. The Starbucks DoubleShot Energy+Coffee drink may make me a believer in the endless array of energy drinks that occupy my local convenient store fridges. I stayed up late and woke up early to put this drink to the test.
We received many entries for our Starbucks Contest, many of which had to be disqualified for various reasons. There were still a few left, but at the end one entry stood out among the rest as the clear winner.
Ryan, site administrator over at GrubGrade.com, a great site for food reviews and is immediately receiving a spot on our BlogRoll, entered a review that met all of the criteria and regulations and also managed to be entertaining and informative. Congratulations Ryan, thanks a lot for you entry! Your prize will be on it’s way soon, hope you enjoy it.
As for everyone else, thanks for entering and look out for any contests we may hold in the near future. Thanks for all your support, and as always, keep reading Everyview!
Hey guys, just stopping by to remind everyone that our Starbucks Contest comes to an end at midnight tomorrow so get out there and grab a can of Mocha Starbucks DoubleShot Energy+Coffee, love it, write a review, send it in, and WIN! If you’re good, that is.
If you need a refresher, use the link above or the picture on the top of the left sidebar to get to the rules page. Make sure you follow those rules. I’ve had to disqualify a lot of people for thinking they can sneak in cheap shots trying to win the totally awesome prize, but it isn’t going to work.
Anyway, good luck guys, I can’t way to see what some of you come up with! And as always, keep reading Everyview!
That’s right, we’ve grown enough to be trusted by a company like Starbucks with a promotional contest. And since this is our first contest, we’ve decided to keep things simple. All you have to do is go out and get a can of Mocha Starbucks DoubleShot Energy+Coffee, drink it, and write a review for it using our reviews as an outline of sorts. Whoever writes the best review will have the honor of getting their work published on Everyview.
What a lame prize, right? Well that’s not all you get. Besides the fame of nearly 300 people a day seeing your name and reading your opinion you get an awesome package including the entire lineup of Starbucks Energy+Coffee and an awesome USB powered drink warming/cooling pad to make sure your coffee is always at the perfect temperature.
The Irish blend of Java Monster is a unique breed. Like the formerly reviewed Russian, Irish is essentially meant to be a non-alcoholic recreation of your favorite foreign liquor with a shot of Java Monster for extra flavor. The Russian, for instance, was essentially a virgin White Russian, and the Irish blend is, obviously, a virgin Irish Creme. Think Bailey’s. Without the booze.
So far I’ve reviewed the vanilla and exquisite cinnamon dulce blends of Starbucks’ popular lineup of DoubleShot Energy+Coffee products. I figured I might as well review the original flavor before moving on to the last blend. Like I’ve stated several times before. I love doing things out of order.
The original blend, simply labeled Coffee, is most akin to Java Monster’s Big Black/Originale (they’re the same thing. There was a name change or something) but is also very different. Superior, even. This is a product from Starbucks, afterall.
Straight from the can:
Your extra Shot. Starbucks DoubleShot Energy+Coffee. A powerful, great-tasting brew of B vitamins, guarana, ginseng and natural proteins from milk. Charged up with premium coffee. That extra surge to keep you energized and alert. Are you ready for more?
If you are the kind of person that prefers your Monster to bite back
then you are going to want to grab yourself a Big Black one. Grab it
tight and hold onto it with pride. Note how hard it is to wrap your
hand around this 15 oz behemoth. Can you handle it? Take a risk. Walk
up to the cashier and whip out your Big Black beauty. Tell him you
want it more than you’ve ever wanted anything. In exchange for your
$2.49 he will let you tear into this bitter-sweet supplement. Do it
slowly, try not to shake. Slowly lift the Big Black Monster to your
lips and take it all in. Don’t swallow yet. Savor it. Mmm.
