With talk of Full Throttle Fury outselling Full Throttle in many accounts, Monster Khaos just having completed a successful launch in Canada, Lost Five-O and Rockstar Juiced packaged in 24oz cans.....is this the way to go?

I just tasted Khaos for the first time and I think it tastes great. Tastes like orange juice with a Monster aftertaste. Definately something I would have as a morning pick me up.

If these drinks really contain 50% juice, and retail for the same price as their regular counterparts, then there is very little if any profit to be made by the manufacturer. This probably explains why only Hansen's, Coke & Rockstar have ventured into the juice thing. They already have products on which they are making huge profits and to have a less profitable brand extension is no big deal for them.

What do you guys think of the energy + juice products? Here to stay? Only for the big guys?

I'm not really a fan, I hated Khaos but I love all of the other monsters. The one that I did kind of like was full throttle fury.

Fury is pretty good. Khaos is OK.

I can't stand Khaos or Juiced, because they both have the "mainstream energy drink taste". I don't care how much good stuff you add to it, if it still tastes a little like Red Bull to me, it's crap.

But I love Full Throttle Fury. I get it all the time. But is Fury really considered a "juice" energy drink like the others?

Yeah, Khaos is about the best e-drink that's come out in a while.

Fury is not considered a juice and it has no juice in it! Monster Khaos and Rockstar Juiced taste nothing like the "mainstream energy drink", in my opinion. They are totally different and they mix even better then Red Bull with a bit of vodka.

;) I would definitely buy it just because of that name. That's hilarious. I would bring the can with me to bed as a suggestive hint to my wife. ;)

Based on the response I guess I should ! First I have to get Lil Poosie out in the market place this summer. Then I will worry about SumPoosie Juice. ;)

Oh no not sumpoosie juice.

Don’t you think that is going just a little too far?
That is just in bad taste.

TTB, how about calling it Juicy Poosie ;)

The name sunpoosie is bad enough.
But sumpoosie juice or juicy poosie is going too far.
That is beyond bad taste.
It is disgusting and vulgar.
Please TTB say you are not going to do that.

Well said. I'm no prude but even as a message board joke it goes beyond being cute or funny.

Bad taste or not, I think it would work.

I guess that's the point. Not all of us are having a good laugh. Thanks for asking. LOL Speaking for myself,I do not find those names funny nor that joke you just posted. IMO

Must have been the mood I was in. Now's a good time go back to the topic at hand.

Full Throttle Fury: There are no juices listed as ingredients.

Monster Khaos: Fruit juice concentrates are the second ingredient(s) listed. If it is true that the ingredients are listed in the order of content percentage, then Khaos should contain a substantial percentage of fruit juice.
