BAWLS is a highly caffinated energy drink. One bottle of BAWLS Guarana (10oz.) has 120 calories. Bawls Guaranexx (10oz.) has 0 calories. BAWLS Guarana has 80mg of caffeine per 12 oz. It is made from guarana and tastes most closely to 7up or Sprite, but should be tried anyway if neither of those drinks are liked (this was just the most closely related drinks I could think of.) The guarana berry can be found in the Amazon Rainforest which has a naturally occuring form of caffine which indians used to use to give themselves and energy boost. The name, BAWLS, is not derived from anything. The name was simply chosen because if you heard it, you would not forget it (the name is an advertisement in itself.) Also, the blue bottle with raised bumps on it is in circulation not only for grip when wet, or for having a dark bottle, but also because it 'looks cool' (according to the manufacturers of BAWLS.) The bottle is the Winner of the Glass Packaging Institute's Clear Choice Award 2005 for Best Packaging of a Carbonated Beverage. BAWLS is not a well known drink in all areas. Many saw BAWLS for the first time in the Xbox third-person shooter game, 'Run Like Hell.' Drinkers of such drink are encouraged by the manufacturer to ask local and major stores to carry BAWLS. SnoBAWLS is a new version of the caffine drink, but in frozen form (to beat the heat of the summer) made from guaranexx. There is also a sugar free version of BAWLS also made from the guaranexx berry. BAWLS Mints are also sold, which supposedly have about 1/12 the caffine amount of a single Bawls beverage and are fizzy and taste sweet.
