Giant Hornet Amino Acids?

Ok, I tried a new energy drink today called "KLR BZ".  It is a joke.  It is the "Livid" flavor and has a secret ingredient.  It is so secret that when Monster tried to make anything similar, there was a lawsuit.  This ingredient is called "GHAA" or "Giant Hornet Amino Acids".  As explained by such accurate throngs of information and truth, such as wikipedia:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_giant_hornet , the Asian Giant Hornet is about 2 inches long with a 3 inch wingspan.  The stinger on this bad-boy is almost a quarter of an inch long!

So, the idea is based on reality.  The giant hornets can not digest proteins.  So, if they kill a smaller insect, they chew up the insect into a paste.  They then feed the paste to their larvae, who then create a liquid for the adults to eat.  This liquid, is a clear mixture of essential amino acids for the adult hornet.  Someone had the bright idea of figuring out what these amino acids could be and then artificially creating this mixture, thinking that it would have super effects on humans.  There are claims that this liquid mixture of amino acids does create stimulating effects in the adult hornet and while some level of increase stimulation is true, it doesn't make the imbiber able to leap from tall buildings or run faster than a speeding bullet.

So, what is in this, exactly?  Well, the normal stuff for an energy drink, except they list these Giant Hornet Amino Acids as "GHAA".  Its funny because that acronym looks like something Arnold should be saying in a random action movie.  The only other thing that had me looking up was Cyancobalamin.  That is basically a generic name for Vitamin B12.

What does it taste like?  Grape soda.  Is it good?  Yeah, I like grape soda.  Do I want to try the others?  Yes.
