Donkey Kong Jungle Juice Doesn’t Taste Like Bananas

Not to be outdone by Mario and his Power Up Energy Drink, it looks like the plumber’s simian adversary just had to have his own peppy beverage.

Donkey Kong Jungle Juice

Recently sighted on the shelves over at New York’s Nintendo World Store, the Red Bull-esque energy drink comes in a skinny red can featuring the likeness of the big ape himself, DK necktie and all. Loaded with ingredients like taurine, caffeine, inositol, guarana extract, panax ginseng extract, and plenty of high fructose corn syrup, it’s bound to give you an initial jolt (then a ride on the sugar crash express).

The guys over at MTV Multiplayer conducted a taste test of both Nintendo beverages and found that they not only tasted identical, they tasted identically crappy. If you don’t mind the color of Pepto Bismol, the smell of bubble gum and the flavor of carbonated Kool-Aid, then maybe you’ll enjoy a can or two.

If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea, then maybe just grab a few and keep ’em on the shelf for the cool can design. If you don’t happen to live near the Nintendo World Store, you can also order cans of the concoction from Anime Castle for $2.25 each.
