Bottle does not look that great. The drink actually looks somewhat refreshing, kind of like a shirly temple, but the bottle, no high marks on that from me.

Have you actually seen the bottle or tasted the product? Playboy only featured the back of the bottle with the girl. My experience has been that many people buy Sumpoose just for the bottle, then after they try it, they come back for more!
Email me your address and I will send you a sample bottle.

yeah well I heard one of the area reps say he was having a hard time unloading his stock - that sales were really S L O W.

What's the deal?
Also what is going on with Think Pink?

07-09-2003, 10:55 AM
what's the deal with the 'sumpoosie' website? It has totally changed and is now just a shot of the playboy ad?

07-09-2003, 06:17 PM
will this actually get them enough hype for a business? What is it exactly?

07-15-2003, 12:02 PM
Remember, the ONLY reason it is in Playboy is because of the name.

07-17-2003, 10:04 PM
How can soooooooooooo many people be sooooooooooo stupid. RB is not a very good product and we all know that so...... here comes along a energy drink that actually mixes with all liquors, does not look like piss in a glass, gives you energy, taste great, and gives you 9 different girls on the bottle!!!! Ron what are you smokin???? You don't like the bottle????? Guess they should take the girl off for you!!! And Johnnyrocket show your product......hmmmmm I don't see it in Playboy page 19 do I???? Not bad for a drink company only around for 9 months!!!!!!!! May I make a suggestion, instead of knocking a new guy taking on the bull try cheering the American spirit. SumPoosie is an American made product and proud of it! :D

07-17-2003, 10:10 PM
And by the way Pepper boy !
They got in because of the name!
That's the whole point !!! Great name, great look, great taste, great girl on the bottle.
Is RB better tasting? NO
Better name? NO
Mixes with liquor better? NO
Better Packaging? No (It's a tiny tin can!)
RB is the leader and that is a fact but that is because they were first. SumPoosie has built a better product. Think about it....20 years ago you never even heard of Walmart!!! 20 years ago Sears and Kmart were king........hmmmm funny how things change....... :cool: :cool: :cool:

No, I don't like the bottle. I don't just think you should take the girl off it, but find a different glass package than just a beer bottle. If you are trying to be creative, then why not find a creative bottle. Personaly, if I was carying that bottle around, I wouldnt be showing it off, i'd probably keep it in a paper bag. I think if you are walking around town with that, you are probably named Chester, probably wearing shorts from the 70's, and got to the store via your old, windowles van. You have a porno drink, plain and simple. That will never be able to take over the Red Bull sales. It will obviously never get authorizations you would need to give you bigger sales. You are stuck in porno shops and stip clubs. Now your other drink, think pink. I have not seen the can, so I will not coment on it. But sugar free, your just jumping on the bandwagon. That will not take over Red Bull. Red Bull SF is doing ok, because they have the Red Bull name. They are selling about 7-9 cases of RB for every 1 of SF. Hansens SF is doing squat, and Rock Star SF is doing ok. I have nothing agaist new companies with big goals. Just don't come in attacking any one who says you will not be the next Red Bull. And yes, your bottle sucks. Has no real appeal in terms of sales, and is a copy cat bottle.

07-18-2003, 02:22 PM
Yes the bottle sucks. Maybe because it has an ass on it. I don't think I want to be thinking about someones ass when I am trying to consume something.

07-28-2003, 07:51 PM
Please tell me why I have to respond to you Ro.... I know why! Your a snot nosed little boy that thinks he knows something at 23???? I have shoes older than you. SumPoosie was designed to be different. The glass bottle is like many beer bottles because they wanted to have a more manly feel to it instead of walking around like a sissy with a little tin can. And you don't like the girls? Check out the 6 new bottle models that will be posted Aug 1st. on the site. Is SumPoosie designed to take over Red Bull no... it is designed to taste better and mix better and a lot of guys collect the different girls....... anyone out there collecting RB cans?
Stick to Saturday morning cartoons Ron that's a little more your speed. tongue.gif

So you have to have a beer bottle to be manley? Like the Coors slogan with their guys night out "Real Men drink Real Beer" Someone on here said you own a bunch of strip clubs or something? If that is true, then it shows your thinking here and your lack of experience in the beverage world. And no, selling fountin drink sodas in your clubs does not count. And if you have shoes that are older than me, I guess that means that your drink is not selling to well because you can't aford new ones. Hey, if your girls on the next run will be better looking, all that means is you are finaly listening. You have not addresed the fact that the other girls on your site look like old, washed up stippers. Hey, my beverage is not in a can, I'm in glass, but in an original package. I have nothing against new drinks comming in. Without a little shake up and new thinking, the beverage market will become very stale, very quickly. But when a company creates a drink with a name like this, then gets mad when people tell you it won't sell well outside the porn sector. Although not exactly, but a copy of Lollies Cherry Pop Energy Drink. 12 oz. glass bottle, with a Cherry 7-up color, using a girl on the label. Then, in your last post you say you don't want to be in a sissy little can. Isn't your "Think Pink" brand in a can? And why did you have to come up with another brand name if Sum Poosie is so great? Prove me wrong. I've admitted that I have not tried it. I can find it anywere in my sales area, or in any of the 8 states I cover. I think you package needs work, and you need to get younger, better looking girls on your package (if that is your direction for sales). But be careful, if you think your sales are driven for collections, then you will fall into the hands of being a novelty beverage. Don't worry, I don't take your attacks against me personal. I know Ill still be here tomarrow.

Ron I have met the owner of SumPoosie 3 times and yes he used to own clubs. So what? Where is your drink? Oh, you don't have the balls or vision to create your own? Well how about the fact that his idea is in Playboy? Not bad huh?
SumPoosie is now sold in 17 states a year ago it was an idea. The girls on the site don't look good huh????? The pictures are of Carmen Garcia, Tanya Taylor, and Brenda Kelly. All of them are fitness girls and have appeared in dozens of magazines...... yeah.... all skanked up huh??? Show us pictures of your last date Ron.......
I am going down to Florida to check out the new energy drink we are coming out with and I will make sure you get SumPoosie and a shirt sent out to you when I get there. Check out the site to see one of the new bottle models. Lauren is blonde 21 and really beautiful. By the way enjoy SumPoosie let me know when it get there. :D

09-02-2003, 01:12 PM
hey energy dude you may be in florida but your still not in the main stream. strip clubs and a few after hours clubs may be success from a year ago, but it will never be a main strem product.
good luck!!

09-02-2003, 07:59 PM
rlocten I think you are a bit confused. SumPoosie is not supposed to be mainstream. It is supposed to be sold wherever liquor is sold. We have been in South Florida for about 4 months from what I understand and AJR distributing and Nutraline in Tampa are both doing very well with the product. In fact I understand it is all over the Bahammas. My sister just got back from there and said it was everywhere. The new girls come out soon and I am sure everyone will love it. Except for Bevnet that is they think Impulse and Amp are one of the best on the market. I can't believe they based anything on taste because I can't even finish a can of impulse. I am sure Miami can handle SumPoosie without any problems. :D

Well, my companies product was already in Playboy, and CNN, and New York post and MTV, and Mens Health, and Teen People, Busines 2.0, and Food Network, and, oh sorry, I'd keep going on, but I don't want to set to high of goals for your company to follow. Dude, the girls on the web site a few months ago did look old and skanky. Either you or someone else from your company said they needed older girls because they knew how to treat people the way they wanted (in reference to the picture of the girls at the Vegas show a while ago). I am not the only one to think that either. Hey, I hope your next models look good. Its not hard to find someone good looking to have their picture on a bottle. But you setence later does not make sence. Sumpoosie is not supposed to be main stream, just everywere alcohal is. Uh, that seems a little main stream to me. Also, we share some same distribution houses. Some have already botted the product while others are still strugling with it. Hey, I hope your company has some success, but don't get all pissy when people point out the obvious. And yeah, I havent started my own beverage company because I know the headaches that go with it. Im better at sales than being creative with coming up with a new brand. Thats has nothing to do with not having any balls or guts, its just being smart.

what is your product? i really want to know. is it your creation or something you take a paycheck from like some employee.

look, sumpoosie may have its flaws but anyone who has not created their own product from scratch should stay quiet until they do it.

i wish sumpoosie success even tho it is not for me. first, the product is made in the usa. second, their marketing approach is different. third, it annoys all of the "playa hatin" clowns that are attacking my support of zygo.

instead of tearing each other down, we should be trying to help each other. this is especially true of the smaller guys here.

Boston Bobby,

By your own admission in another post, you stated that you are not a Zygo owner. You're just a fan. Why aren't you taking your own advice?

No one on this board has been or will be successful in any industry if they are looking out for the well being of their competition over their own. The biz is competitive and unfortunately at times it can be cutthroat. This is the reality most of us have come to accept.

Also, when you get down to it, there really isn't anything innovative about a new energy drink or a new vodka for that matter, stop pretending otherwise. Sumpoosie and Zygo are both attempting to carve out a niche in categories that have already been established by trend-setting brands.

If you want to get creative and show some real balls, try creating a product category that no one's ever heard about and then turn it into a multi-million dollar industry. Until then, don't criticize the critic just because he disagrees with you. That's lazy and lacks imagination.


09-03-2003, 03:29 AM
Thank you Bobby finally somebody understands!!! Instead of bashing how about some ideas to make a product better. The fact is SumPoosie looks better, taste better, and mixes better than RB. To say it is not inovative is just plain crazy. That is like saying Hugh Hefner's Playboy magazine is nothing new because there were already magazines before it. SumPoosie is a step ahead of other energy drinks because it brings more to the table. Clubs can hold parties meet the girls on the bottles and hold contest for new girls on the bottles. It is fun and something to do. Look at the product as a whole and compare it side by side to any other energy drink and they lose. Go to any bar now serving it and ask what energy drink sells the most hands down. For instance Crazy Horse in Myrtle Beach sells SumPoosie 8 to 1 over RB... that is a fact. The new girls come out soon and watch what happens.... Hey Ron check out Lauren on the website ..... have you ever seen a nicer looking 21 year old girl? Just one of the 6 new bottle models coming your way. :D

09-03-2003, 12:36 PM
Oh my God Energy Dude
All those girls are either porn chicks or they are Fitness Magazine Ho's - Brenda kelly - big deal - I;'ve seen her many times at the Olympia - so what?

She's part of the the Fitness Industry Trash Division. The chicks who will DO anything to get in the mags - it's a joke. The other chicks - like Tanya (a partner of Draytons) is a porn "actress" LOL

The others look like they've been rode hard and put away wet - YUCK

Thanks anyway - I prefer girls who are beautiful AND more "wholesome"

But hey what standards can you expect from your kinda "crowd".

Gee I bet your stripper friends love Sum Poosie so much that you don't have to throw dollars at 'em - just bottles

09-03-2003, 06:54 PM
Once again Johnny boy .....check out the website!
One of the new bottle models "Lauren" is pictured in a Pink dress and is stunning!!! And guess what she is 21 and simply beautiful. And one more thing before knocking the girls post your girlfriend.............. tongue.gif

09-04-2003, 08:47 PM
yeah- uh - gee I don't think I'll be posting a pic of my girlfriend anytime soon for you EnergyDude. Suffice it to say - my fiance is 25, blond hair, brown eyes, 5'7 120 pounds - She is not only one of THE most beautiful women I have ever known - but also one of the most intelligent & ethical persons I have ever known.

Yeah i don't think I'll be allowing you to to compare her to bimbettes like Brenda Kelly & Tonya and the rest of the Poosie Girls- blech.

The comparison would be ridiculous since my fiance is an attorney & hardly needs the $$$ from any job where she would have to go up to guys at a party saying "Hi - I'm a Poosie Girl - would you care for a taste of Sum Poosie?"

Ha ha ha ha - that would be the day

If you can't post it.... don't boast it!!!!
Sounds like a bow wow situation to me...
Nothing wrong with an ugly lawyer Johnny, I wish you two nothing but the best. Always remember if
she is not around I know where you can get SumPoosie! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Psst -Hey energydude - hate to burst your bubble, but my baby is 100 times more gorgeous, sexy, sweet & more intelligent than ANY of those skanks you have hawking your slop.

She would take one look at you and your "girls" and laugh her ass off. Let's just say that while my little honey is shopping with her Platinum Am Ex card at Saks Fifth Avenue & Bloomingdales, your bimbos gather their "dollar tips" and shop at K-Mart Blue Light Specials. Ahaaa!!!

I know it's hard for you to comprehend that there ARE beautiful women who have BRAINS too and choose not to demean themselves by being strippers, serving poosie, etc etc. That ain';t my problem cause you couldn't even HOPE to be in her league.

the sad thing is you think the girls on your sight are cool - yuck

Energydude sound like he very upset! Why he so upset? If slutty, opium house, naked picture of body prostituting girl on bottle so smart. Why they not start own energy drink company and put naked picture of you on bottle!? Becuse they stupid girls, must sell naked picture of themselves to make money. This a very dishonorable thing to they entire family. They mother must be very, very ashamed of them! And you Energydude. You dishonor your ancestors with this foolishness. Get hand out of you pants EnergyDude. Stop always having you mind on sex. Try to be good person. And no, I no want to see picture of you naked on bottle either. I know you probably try it now that I bring it up.

Ugly is not name calling it is called an adjective which you seem to know nothing about. I just wanted to give you a taste of your own medicine. You always crack on the girls and never talk about the product itself. It taste better, looks better, and mixes better than any other energy drink. Those are the facts, I am simply excited about a wonderful drink that I hope all of you can enjoy soon. ;)

I wouldn't go so far as to call the other chicks ugly - that wouldn't be true - how about "less than wholesome" to put it politely. Remember I KNOW what some of these chicks are into - so please don't try to white wash it.

As far as the product - the taste isn't BAD - but I just think the presentation, name & sales campaign is a disaster. But you are definitely marketing to a specific demographic - pimps, hos, strippers, strip club owners, adult film industry members :rolleyes: , I mean you have definitely carved out a niche for yourself there - congrats. but please don't try to pump it onto the conusmers or distributors of the legitimate energy drink market.

That is all :D

I have always said SumPoosie looks better, taste better, and mixes better than any other energy drink. The packaging is the bonus!!! I sell to more than 120 different clubs and bars and they all say the same thing. Those are the facts.
