just wondering what you guys think of this brand, comments and questions

I don't like the wrap on the bottles and it kinda has a kool-aid taste. Are they making the NOS energy drink, thats what i heard?

I like the brand. I think it sells about 80% of their volume in Chains. But it sells fairly well out here.

I too like the brand. They have a nice variety of flavors and the ones I have tasted were good. I also like the fact that they are managed by a group of x-SoBe guys.

I like it as well. Glass bottles, no HFCS, good flavors. Philadelphia Coke handles it around here, so it's pretty much everywhere.

rc chicago was just bought out by sevenup. Its supposed to happen at the end of february. Could see the end of nehi and old towne in chicago

Does 7-up or RC in chicago have monster or rockstar?

02-04-2005, 06:05 PM
yes and no. rockstar is with seven up and it does nothing. monster is the number 2 behind redbull and is handled by the old style beer network of distributors

olde towne and nehi are ingrained in chicago. abc would be stupid to stop carrying it.

there is not enough room on the trucks for that much product

Didn't Coke II aka New Coke also sell well in Chicago? CCE dumped it when they bought out Herb.

According to Beverage Digest, DPSUBG is just buying RC Chicago's CSAB rights. That should have no effect on their Old Towne line.

I thought Fuse had a Kool Aid Taste too. But I do like their Mega, excellent product.
