For the first time today, I saw this in a local grocery store, so naturally I bought a couple. I've seen it down in Virginia before, but never up here...is there any region where it is catching on? I'm gonna try it tommorrow, BN rated it 3.5, not bad...

It has a decent sell through rate from what I see. Personally I don't care much for the taste, but the can is cool looking and helps it sell. I bet this would have sold much better back around Fast and The Furious #1. Fuze makes it and they have been pushing it along and getting authorizations for it. Last major grocery authorization was Giant/Tops/Martins.

Agree with Super Jay. The can is pretty bad ass but the taste was not very good.

I have to agree, the taste is definitely on the bitter side. It's very citrus-y and the grapefuit essence is a little overwhelming. But, these really pack a punch. If you need energy, they definitely get the job done - one of the stronger energy drinks I have tried.

This stuff is pretty good, the different taste is somewhat refreshing-it's more in the Sobe Gold mold than the typical Red Bull/Rockstar-type spiked apple juice taste.

And it packed a nice punch.

I used to just find this at one store in Grand Rapids, but now it's popping up everywhere. Tastes pretty good to me.

we've had it in my area here at the lake for about 2 years. it sells very decent here at the lake, and in some of my accounts, it sells very well.

It's pretty common in Philly but when I reviewed it awhile back I didn't think it was that good. I'm going to try the sugarfree one sometime soon. I'll see if that is any better.

Has anyone found NOS enetgy drink in Cleveland?
Also has anyone tried Wired X294? It is said to have 294 milligrams of ceffine in a 16oz can. I saw it at http://www.energyfiend.com/caffeine-content/wired-x294
Thanks,

NOS ED just came out with a 22oz Reseable bottle that look like a NOS canister...Pretty Cool.
NOS is basically Fuze's old MEGA formula. The new bottle is going to only help NOS get more exposure in the ED category. I think the team at FUZE do some really cool stuff.

how much shorter is the shelf life of the resealble bottle than the can? I am assuming the can is about 18 months.
