Albertsons in Southern California REFUSED to carry this product. Why? They passed samples around their office and the word is nobody cared for it, therefore, they decided not to sell it!

If that is true that a small group of ding bats sat in office and deep sixed a drink that could make them money......that is pretty darn bad business. They should at least try it in a few stores that do well energy sales wise,and do a test.

Please note I do not drink energy drinks. I do not like them and I am not employed in the industry. Good business is good business regardless of a group of near sighted ding bats. LOL One's taste may not reflect your core customer's taste.

Rockstar in general does not seem to move that well in a lot of Albertsons, and their enegy drink shelves are already packed. I remember with Red Bull, my businest Albertsons would sell on avg. 4-5 cases or Red Bull per week, and that is all 4 skus. Compared with my slowest Safeway store which sold 5 cases per week.

I tell you what ... and I AM biased on the brand... but if you are open minded... I defy you not to at least like Rockstar Juiced. I liken it to nectar of the GODS (LOL). Seriously, it is worth a taste.

I tried Monster Khaos the other day and I didn't like it much. It still had a really strong "energy drink" taste, even after I mixed some OJ on with it. Maybe I'll like Juiced more, but I haven't seen it anywhere yet.

I agree with you guys who think Albertsons could have given it a chance. I mean, they would have made money just based on the simple fact that its a new item and can create some buzz. I'm sure the other retailers are taking it...I just know they are not.
