The Original (250ml) can of Emerge Stimulation Energy Drink.

Emerge is a carbonated mixed-fruit flavour energy drink which contains taurine and caffeine. It is produced by the Cott Corporation at their packaging facility at Kegworth in Leicestershire, England. It is sold in Tesco, Netto, Asda, Poundland, Home Bargains and other retailers. [1] Its primary difference from competing brand-name energy drinks such as Red Bull and Relentless is the comparatively lower RRP of 35p (250ml can). It can often be found at a lower price than this[2] (for example in pound shops) often undercutting supermarket store brands.[3]
