www.sumpoosie.biz (http://www.sumpoosie.biz) still works but is currently being changed to www.sumpoosieonline.com (http://www.sumpoosieonline.com) the reason for the change is due to customer demand wanting to purchase the product online. Hats and shirts also seem to be very popular and will be sold on the site. As far as phone numbers are concerned our 800 line works fine. Did you call 888-855-PINK ! That has been our phone number since day one. I hope that helps.
Saint... I guess you are not a fan? That's too bad you are one of the more highly respected members on this board. I hope in time I can change your mind and give us a try. ;)

Never heard of this drink anyways...what part(s) of the country is it sold in?
02-08-2006, 06:36 PM
Does the .biz not allow more than 4 users online at any one time? I just love all the extra hype. Great sales and all, but I still can't find it anywere in my area.

Hi Ron. The new site is www.sumpoosieonline.com (http://www.sumpoosieonline.com) the time has come to put our product for sale online. We get calls from all over the country from people who want to get a case or two for a wedding or a party or for Superbowl. The fact is we are a young company and currently our distribution only covers about 10% of the country. We are working very hard to change that in 2006 and I think having our product available at Spenser Gifts again will help. Remember we have no distribution in areas like New York, California, Chicago, or even LAS VEGAS believe it or not. March 15th sumpoosieonline.com will enable people to purchase the product directly as well as hats, shirts, and even a membership. I hope in a few months you will have little problem finding SumPoosie in our new 16 ounce can in your area.

I went on the website that is available right now and think it is a great idea. I am not sure how it will go over in the stores but have a good feeling that a lot of bars and such will do very well. Or like you said parties and such. people will order it even as a conversational piece.Or collectors. For a 15 year old however i dont know how the parents would take it.

Tallthinblonde, is sum poosie targeting mostly the night life scene or just everybody in general?
02-08-2006, 10:50 PM
I would love to be a distributor one day but i just dont have the funds right now
02-08-2006, 10:50 PM
I think this will grow huge with the bar crowds mostly

Thats what I wanted to hear TTB...everyone for SP has been too much of a cheerleader acting like it is blowing up everywere. Thank you for at least saying you just dont have distro. in thoes big areas. And if you hav local success, great. Let me know if you actually do ever make it over here to CA, or looking to break in, Im sure I could be of help.

I might add myself a few months back there was a lonely bottle of Sum Poosie on a shelf at a Spencer Gift Shop being the intrigued energy drink experiment-errrr that i am i tried it and it wasn't bad at all ! I have to say i am glad that i did and good luck with your product i do like the marketing behind the brand !

sum***** used to be distributed in California, until the distributer there got smart and dropped out of the "sum*****" business
that **** sat on the shelves collecting dust in cali...what a joke...
I love the continued illiteracy demonstrated on the sum poosie.biz website under Poosie Gear
"we APPRICIATE your patience"......you guys will still be saying that when we're all old & gray
stick to stripping..it's what you know best...and leave the energy drink business to people who know what the hell they're doing

Wow... you sound like a happy guy! Let me clear one thing up for you... we have never had a distributor in California. SumPoosie would do great in LA and San Fran ! The good news is we just signed a distributor for Northern California. As far as our website is concerned we are working hard on getting www.sumpoosieonline.com (http://www.sumpoosieonline.com) up and running. You can grade it when its finished in a few weeks!

friends of mine who own 3 upscale Italian restaurants/bar in southern california had a guy (who will remain nameless) from sumpoosie talk them into buying cases of the stuff..but it gathered dust on their shelves and they eventually dumped it....
the guy who sold them sumpoosie(who shall remain nameless) left sumpoosie fast when he realized it sucked as a business and investment

There was a small distributor in Nor. California who even promoted SP on the radio and had a big party for it...that was the last I heard of that...and it was like last year. Who did you sign up out here TTB? Id be interested to know if you got a good distributor for your brand...or just a distributor.
02-14-2006, 05:29 PM
Again, Johnny it sounds like you have an axe to grind. We have never had a distributor in California. I hope to change that in the near future because I believe the product would do very well in Southern California. Ron I will fill you in by email.
02-17-2006, 01:28 AM
Right TTB...then I guess it was the "tooth fairy" who was selling (or attempting to sell) sumpoosie in Socal
You are either not telling the truth, or you don't know what you're talking about..which one is it?
02-17-2006, 02:56 AM
SP is the worst. Local distributor was sold a pallet of "very valuable" 2004 bottle model bottles and told SP never goes out of code. His mistake for believing it but the SP sales guy on East Coast, Scott, really overcharged and mispresented the product that was out-of-code. Anyway, just another "wanna-be" product that tries to use sex to make it seem like a legitimate product. If I hear "sells great in LA, Vegas, and NYC" one more time from a company, I might lose it. If sex sells so well, then why aren't these products all over the country: Sumpoosie, Dicken's Cider, Sexy Water, Bikini Spring Water, etc. etc. See where they are in 2 years from now.

Wow... how do I answer this without sounding defensive? First to you Johnny I will say it one more time... I do all the contracts for our company and I have no contracts for a distributor in Southern California. NONE !!! Never have! Produce the contract or just let it go! You have no idea what you are talking about.
slipknot... Scott is a former employee of a distributor in South Carolina. Sounds like the "local" distributor bought a pallet from a delivery boy! To get a hold of corporate call the 888 number on the bottle! SumPoosie has been around 4 years and we are just getting started. Why are we not ALL over the country? We do not have the distribution yet that is why. We are a small company that started out in a basement 4 years ago. Now that we are going to a 16 ounce I think you will see us in more markets. When we debut "lil Poosie" this summer in an 8 ounce can I think you will see we are making progress.

02-17-2006, 11:53 PM
I guess in a way they are... dancers at the clubs don't want to walk around with a big 16 ounce can. They like the little cans!

In a basement no less...lovely!!!
LIL PUSSIE...Oh God you have got to be kidding me....so now we are going to have to hear you tell us how successful you are at the bars going up to guys saying'Hey do want a LIL PUSSIE?" ????
Please tell me you're kidding. What a classic!!!bwahahahahahahahahah
Must have been yet ANOTHER "delivery boy" then in SoCal..is that what you call all the slaes guys who dumped your ass after they found out Sum Pussie didn't sell worth a ****???

Wow ... Johnny I don't know what your problem is or what points you are trying to make. You seem to have issues you need to discuss. You can contact me at my email address or you can call the toll free number on the bottle and ask for me by name.
Yes, we will have a lil Poosie by summer time. If you don't like it Johnny don't buy it. I am sure the SumPoosie "lip balm" will offend you too but Sum people like Poosie on their lips! ;)
02-28-2006, 12:59 AM
Why on earth would I need to discuss anything about myself with you...the supposed creator of Sum Poosie, and now Lil Poosie & .....this is priceless.....Sum Poosie Lip Balm.
I think it's pretty clear that far from manufacturing a legitimate Energy Drink like RedbUll or Rockstar, you are really just a pornographer/strip club flunky probably posting all this from an Adult XXX Store. What's next? Sum Poosie Flavored Lubricant?? hey why not, right?
You have no class, it's obvious after every new Poosie announcement you make. Your products are just a reflection of you. Yuck!
