Keep your eye on Kronik Energy. I would suggest he attend the NACS show in Vegas in November. He will get to taste, touch and feel a whole lot of drinks.

I did not see you mention the World's Newest Super Drink! It is the next generation in Tonics, as it is not a juice but rather a whole food, matrix - all natural energy tonic. It contains 9 fruits, 2 roots (skin, peel, pulp, pits, stems, juice - pulverized) then added to the cleanest mineral water in the world containing 13 naturally occuring minerals from the Andes. Mtns. It is extrmely high in anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatories, vitamins and minerals. It is changing lives. It is cold processed, not high heat pasturized, thus preserving enzymes. It is Alive!! Since it is not a "juice", it helps keep the body in an Alkaline PH state vs. Acidic Ph caused by many juices. Diabetics like it also because of the high anti-inflammatories helping with inflammation in the pancreas. Yes, there are some wonderful juices on the market but nothing holds a candle to this one in my opinion. This drink lights up a light bulb. That is how you feel when you drink it. Sales are in multi millions, company is 2 years old. See website for details: www.viaishere.com (http://www.viaishere.com)

You guys really need a webdesigner!

The thing the dissapoints me most about NOS is that it was released so far behind the wake of the Fast and Furious movie craze. That drink would have seriously taken off if it came out around the same time of the first film. What better way to get your drink going than to score like that?

I think that one might have a little potient to make some impact, but I see little staying power or growth. I do see it on more shelves than the previously mentioned ones. All energy drinks are gimmicky, thats how you sell you product, but some of those other ones are just silly. Steven Seagal energy drink? Pffft.

The energy drink market is like a big pond with a bunch of the same fish, sure there are some that stand out but most blend in with the others. More and more drinks pop up only to fall into obscurity.

Honestly, I think it would take an act of God for any drink to really start giving Red Bull a run for its money. Its a household name. The figures don't lie, it sells. In my three stores it totally murders any other drink in terms of sales. Sure, drinks like Monster, AMP and the Sobe ones do well, but I could never picture something ridiclous like a Steven Seagal or 'spaz juice' drink even getting to that plateau.

steven segal's energy drink? do i really need to address that one? stewie's and happy bunny are created by a company called Boston America, what turned me off to them was that they take the SAME EXACT DRINK, and just slap a different label on like 4 different lines. source was impressive, and has a higher caffeine content then most, but i found it to be expensive. bookoo and nos are prevelant here in nassau county. i tasted diesel, there's nothing special about it.

i don't know how it is in all the areas, but here at the lake, coke distibutes NOS. it sells pretty well, though i don't much care for it. it's too tarty.

Steven Seagal's Energy Drink might have the best can design I have ever seen. Just amazing!

with that comment super jay, you not only give the beverage industry, but your name, jay, which is also my name, a bad name.

Ok, Ok, maybe Seagal's drink does not the best can design ever, but it sure is funny. Has anyone ever seen a can of this at a store, if so where.

I'd like to get some opinions on Source Burn. Is it as strong as they claim to be (8.4oz). Doing well?

02-22-2006, 10:54 AM
We have been taking a serious look at Source Burn Energy Drink. It is a outstanding products, in terms of taste, effectiveness and formula. From what I gather Source's focus will be in their 16oz series. They also seem to be agressive in "grass roots" marketing. Which is a plus.

02-22-2006, 11:48 AM
Jones has the best branding, best line of products, out of what you listed. Tke a look at where this co. is heading.Will leave the others in the dust.jmho.

Has any one heard of Nitro 2 Go

02-27-2006, 11:19 PM
Well... I would suggest SumPoosie but you knew I would say that! It taste great and it sells, what more could you ask for! New 16 ounce can comes out March 15th all bevnet members are welcome to request a sample can. Please wait 7-10 days for delivery.

02-28-2006, 01:32 AM
Nitro 2 Go is garbage, one very small step above XS Energy and that is not saying much!

02-28-2006, 05:31 PM
ALLPRO what do you mean by "grass roots" marketing??

Can I ask a question? How do you define a premium energy drink and a non-premium energy drink? What differentiates the two?

BuzzMonkey Energy

taste, uniqueness, not immulating other energy drinks, made with natural raw materials.

Look at grey Goose as compared to Smirnoff Vodka. Smirnoff has won tatse awards year after year but Grey Goose has that all important image going with it.

So true. It's amazing how much power marketing of a product has over the actual competitive catagory quality of a product. Us humans are a fickle as a pickle. LOL

Based on my trials of those I think Jones probably has the best chance of success followed by Diesel. I wasn't impressed when trying the other ones. Email me if you want more detail
