wow, thanks for the update man..

while i dont tend to drink FMBs much anymore; i do pick up a random 6pack here and there and typically enjoy them if i am just relaxing and want a sweet/soda pop style drink.

am interested in what these captain morgans FMBs will be like, and also surprised they are using the name/brand for another FMB! I went thru hell and back to collect up some captain morgan golds, and still have maybe 10-15 here..

mike's light, i liked in theory, but it just wanst that good.. interested in what this new one is.

smirnoff fire reminds me of something that would be spicey, am VERY interested in this one though if its caffeinted.. i am a big fan of B^E and Tilt..

though is B^E cancelled?

Had a chance to try the Smirnoff Fire. It's actually pretty good. Much better than B E or Sparks. They actually made it 6.0% alcohol as well. Doesn't taste like you'd think. It's actually has a fruity taste to it. Plus, they added caramel color to it.

02-14-2006, 01:58 AM
sweet, cant wait to try these..

is smirnoff fire in the same 12/6packs as smirnoff ice or in cans/single serves?

any new notes on release dates?

any idea whaat the parrot bay flavors are?

02-15-2006, 01:36 AM
It's packaged the same as all the other Ice products. No idea when it will be out. I know it was just sent out for consumer testing. The only Parrot Bay flavor I heard of is called Wave Runner. I think it is mango and passion fruit falvor.

02-15-2006, 03:33 AM
hmm very interesting..

cant wait to try them all..

is B^E cancelled? I have a really hard time finding it at all

02-17-2006, 06:04 PM
natty up - 24oz natural energy beer from a-b

peels from a-b

03-20-2006, 09:27 PM
so where are these new rtd?

i havent heard or seen anything about smirnoff fire or the new captain morgans yet

seems some of the flavors of smirnoff twisted/ bacardi silver mgiht be getting cancelled

03-25-2006, 01:49 PM
hey jimmy

that i know of, none of the smirnoff twisted flavors are being discontinued. the bacardi's however are being disco'd due to a-b's launch of peels. b^e has been disco'd for tilt.

smirnoff has in development smirnoff teas, as well as smirnoff fire.

parrot bay is launnching in michigan first as a test market.

supposedly there is something that smirnoff is test marketing in chicago very soon that is supposedly "very pure." that's all i know of it. if you know more or find it, let me know.

03-25-2006, 08:23 PM
will keep an eye out for anything weird relating to smirnoff fmb's.

ill have to make a run up to michigan when the captain morgans hit, please post about them if you get the chance!

any idea what bacardi silver flavors are being disco'd?

04-03-2006, 02:48 PM
so the bacardi silver flavors have been on sale most everywhere i know in chicagoland, that means they are ALL being discontinued???

How came everyone automatically equates with "on sale" with being discontinued? Maybe it is part of the marketing campaign. Since it is warming a bit get people to try them at a discount and hopefully get them hooked.

04-03-2006, 10:21 PM
well, because someone said they were being discontinued.. and i have never seen them all on sale, every week, at every store, prior.. nor have i seen 12packs being discontinued at $7.99 a 12pack ever before.

so, a real possibilty they are being disco'd.. but i didnt say they were, i was asking.

I'm currious what is the angle they are taking this product? Is it similar to Reg PB or is it totally different?

04-05-2006, 06:25 PM
it's 3 flavors. I can't think of them off of the top of my head and the sell sheets are in my car.

I was working at a cardboard corrugator in Valpo, IN. I noticed the Smirnoff Fire and rolls for the 3 other Morgan flavors. Pallets upon pallets of the boxes ready to go. I snapped some pics of the rolls showing the designs and possibly the names depending on the treo 650's quality.

04-13-2006, 11:50 AM
Looking foreward to these fo sure. Thanks for the pics!

04-14-2006, 03:13 PM
ha sweet. i don't know when we will have the fire. supposedly they have two teas in the works.

04-14-2006, 10:34 PM
I'm looking forward to the fire if only for the 6% quality.
Checked on the Sunset surf (yellow picture) since the flavor wasn't readable in the picture. It is a Pineapple & Orange flavor.

Looks like fun.

I believe I saw the PB's here in Columbus the other day when I was roaming around at one of the grocery stores. I'm guessing maybe we are a test market or have they been released now?

04-23-2006, 10:55 PM
I have tried all three parrot bay flavors and currently sell them at my bar - they are awesome! It's nice not having that upset stomach feeling you get from most other malt beverages. Try the Peels by A-B as well, 100% fruit juice and 5%alcohol =)

04-23-2006, 10:56 PM
Another new one for you guys: Absolut Ruby Red. It's a grapefruit flavored vodka coming soon and you can already order it.

04-27-2006, 08:44 PM

This weekend I tried Parrot Bay: Sunset Surf and it was absolutely amazing, it didn't even seem like I was drinking an alcoholic drink which for me was awesome but at the same time...I ended up drinking more!! WHOO HOO.
