Just thought I'd pass this on. I saw Full Throttle Mother at Macey's today on sale for $0.89. All the other Full Throttle drinks were regular price ($1.99). I'm assuming this is because they are discontinuing it - any word? I tried it once and, although it wasn't my favorite drink, I didn't think it was as horrible as some other people have indicated.

They had to overproduce when this first came out. All of mine I pulled this week(Feb 4) or it goes our March 3rd. The new stuff I sent in is early June. That's unheard of date wise on energy. It really is not moving.

Bhamcokeman is right, all the Mother that is in the Dollar Tree and Big Lots all have a early March date on time, it's not moving - but it's not dead yet. CCBCC never picked it up, didn't like that "Bad Mother" implied "Bad Mother #$%@#@"

Coke is DC'ing it nationally. Probably one of the worst ideas for an ED yet..didn't have a chance. Who comes up with these things?????

It just did not taste good. I don't know anyone who liked the flavor at all.

I hope that it's not being discontinued -- this is by far my favorite energy drink flavor. I was both elated (I regularly pay $2.39 a can for Full Throttle "Bad Mother") and alarmed (worried that they were discontinuing it) to see it for 50 cents a can at Dollar Tree!

yeah we just got it at big lots for 75 cents a pop. They also had vitamin energy, interesting because many of my local gas stations are just getting that. the vitamin energy is very good.

What flavors of Vitamin Energy did they get? I'm sure they just produced too many and are trying to get rid of them.

they may have had all, but the two i saw were grape and tropical citrus. btw, mother is nasty. tasted like peanuts and salad and basically crap.

I actually enjoyed mother. In my opinion it was slightly refreshing. And when I find myself looking for an energy drink. I usually pick this one up. But I guess only 2% of the people enjoyed it. (non scientific % made up that number). I would defiantly pick up some 2 for 1, if my fridge was not full of other energy drinks yet to be tried.

That is the only way i would drink that stuff is when it is 2 for 1, like now.....not a great taste to it... would rather spend my money on NOS thats my energy of choice

NOS Grape and Fruit Punch are also decent.. but stay away from the sugarfree.

The 22 oz NOS is a monster. It's one of them you can count on ordering at least 1 case of every time you go in to a store. We did away with the 11 oz when the 22 oz came out. NOS outsales Full Throttle in my area. I wish we'd get that grape also though.

On another note, I ordered some Full Mother the other day, and the dates now are September. That's a good date, so I have no idea whats going on with it. I have not heard a definate if it is gone or not.

I read they stopped making it and just went with the punch. Sure you can still find it but in the future it will be gone.

I wouldn't think so just because there are more and more stores that are getting it. but you read the article and it would make sense.

It would be a bummer to me if Mother got discontinued. It's one of the only all-natural energy drinks I know of.

Does anyone know of other all-natural energy drinks?

Still plenty of Mother in Dollar Tree - I also found Aftershock reg/sugarfree (from Cott) in there as well, along with Joker Energy.
