5 hour energy hypermelon

This may be the most dangerous food I’ve ever created. I came up with the idea near the end of a very long day of work, when delirium had set in and all of my ideas were at their most absurd. But, in the morning, the idea still lingered with me, so, despite my sense of impending moral conflict, I present Hypermelon.

Hypermelon is melon that has been vacuum infused with an energy drink. Strong vacuum pressure causes the cellular structure of the melon to change, and when atmospheric pressure is returned, the melon sucks up a proportionally large amount of any surrounding liquid. In these experiments, I infused watermelon with 5 Hour Energy and Sugar-Free Redbull. It’s pretty easy to extend the recipe to Rockstar Energy Drinks or other high-caffeine beverages. The watermelon helps to mask the semimedicinal flavor of the energy drink, making consumption of those beverages even more dangerous.

Here’s a short video showing the vacuum infusion process. As you can see, the watermelon sucks up quite a bit of liquid. In fact, it only takes 200g of watermelon to absorb an entire 5 Hour Energy.

I encourage you to exercise caution when making hypermelon. This shit is no joke.

    Since you are clearly the expert at this . . .

    1) why not do it in a sealed bag? less mess? better infusion? worse? more structural damage?

    2) How cold were the melon/drink? Looks like a lot of boiling. Would cooling it off to reduce splatter negatively impact absorbtion?

    3) pulling a full vac? single run or multiple? press melon beforehand to drive off water?

    @Ojikun No difference in a sealed bag since the process is about air pressure differentials as opposed to the force of the atmosphere against a sealed bag. In other words, it’s not about squashing. Sometimes with a bag, when the liquid boils it foams over the sealing bar which makes a mess.

    Melon and drink were cold, but not super cold. Colder = less boiling.

    Pulling a full vac (~30″ Hg) one time for watermelon. For other fruits, you may want to pull the vac multiple times. No prep to the melon other than slicing. Watermelon compresses very easily.

    Do apples also infuse really well since they are ~20% air? Would love to try making a caramel-infused apple so it doesn’t stick to the teeth so much.

    I have never seen anyone vacuum any other melon than water. Do other melons not work the same way or are people just not that creative?

    You could definitely see your skills in the work
    you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who
    are not afraid to say how they believe. All the time
    go after your heart.

  8. Drinking water after eating a lot of watermelon can b a cause of over hydratio.

  9. Drinking energy drink and after some workout you’ll sweat. So i think it actually gonna work.

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole
    my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!
