‘Sanic Chili Dogs’ G FUEL energy drink is real and tastes like …

We hold no liability in this, seriously

It wasn’t all that long ago that G FUEL and SEGA teamed up to release the Sonic the Hedgehog “Peach Ring” flavor, and it appears they’re back again with another, somewhat more interesting offering — Sanic “Chili Dogs” flavor.

G FUEL Sanic Chili Dogs is available to buy for customers in the U.S. and Canada as a limited-edition Sanic Bundle, which includes a 40-serving Sanic Chili Dogs tub, 16 oz. Sanic shaker cup, and an additional 40-serving Sonic’s Peach Rings tub.

“The Sanic meme still cracks us up after all of these years. We’re thrilled to work with SEGA again on our second, and yes, very real, Sonic the Hedgehog-inspired crossover flavor,” said G FUEL Founder and CEO, Cliff Morgan. “If you’re waiting for us to yell ‘April Fools,’ don’t hold your breath. G FUEL Sanic Chili Dogs is the real deal.”

In truth, when we received the press release, we assumed it was just another April Fool’s joke, but we’re assured it’s actually real. But, then again, who knows what’s real anymore?

“After the runaway success of the G FUEL Sonic’s Peach rings flavor, SEGA and G FUEL sat in a room together (virtual, of course) to try and figure out how to one-up ourselves. After much deliberation, someone jokingly said, “what about a chilidog flavor?”, to which – we all kind of laughed, and then latched on to its simplistic brilliance. I mean, who doesn’t want to drink a chilidog? Right?” said Michael Cisneros, manager of licensing for SEGA of America.

G FUEL Sanic Chili Dogs is sugar-free and loaded with antioxidants from 18 different fruit extracts, according to the press release. A serving of the new flavor has 15 calories and contains 140 mg of caffeine along with proprietary energy and focus-enhancing complexes.

You can pre-order the G FUEL Sanic Bundle at gfuel.com/sanic-chili-dogs, and the bundle starts shipping in June.

Oh, and if you haven’t watched our very own Scotty Mo’s unboxing of the Sonic Peach Ring G FUEL flavor, here ya go. Let us know if you want a Sanic Chili Dogs follow-up!
