I agree that I could not stand the taste of Red Bull when I first tried it. I have grown to like it in the past few years. I also think that Red Bull at the very least deserves the credit for doing an extremely good job in making thier product wanted by the the consumer. Like it or not RB is here to stay, which is evident by the imminent launch of Pepsi's entry into the category.
I hate Red Bull as a brand, as a competitor, as a little can, and as a company with a crapy advertisment...but to call the company a bunch of baffons or anything like that...maybe they were lucky enough to stumble upon this, or maybe they knew what they were doing...either way...Its hard to bash on a company that has a basic monopoly on a catigory...keep your bashing to thoes new age drink companys that can't make a dime even after record years of growth...But I wont point a finger at thoes companies...lets just call them Janes Soda..
