    The review by Bevnet seemed to be more about the name of the product than the product itself. I always hear how excited everyone is when they find a product with real sugar in it and they are even willing to drive hundreds of miles for it. Well... SumPoosie is made with Real Cane Sugar. It is by far the best looking, smelling, and tasting energy drink on the market. If you don't believe me compare it to ANY on the market side by side and see if I am right. Better ingredients make a better product. I wish the review was more about the look and the taste and less about the name.

    That should be a wake up call to you on the name of your product.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    I agree with your assessment that your drink taste great. But the reality of any product is NAME recognition. Nike, Coke, Pepsi, Playboy, etc: All of these names do not imply something other than what it is. If your drink was called Fred's Energy Juice it may get a real favorable straight forward critique. However, calling it "Sum Poosie", a reference that every adolescent young man(as well as woman) is very familiar with makes your product seem like a novelty item that is bbest suited for the shelf at Spencer Gifts or at the local sex/head shop.
    You can tell me and everyone on this board about your gramndmothers cat, but how do you tell that to someone who is looking for an energy drink to take back to work with them? Furthermore, how are they going to explain to their co-workers their choice of drink.

    Like I said, your prodcuct taste GREAT! But the name will hold it back from really getting the recognition it deserves.

    Just being honest with My Opinion.
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

    Just think about the Guy trying to explain to his wife or girlfriend why he is drinking SP!

    Most of them won't believe him if he says..."but honey it tastes great!"

    I am not going to defend the name Poosie. Poosie is the same as Focker and that was on 7,000 movie screens. In this day and age when children 8 years old are looking at things on the internet we did not talk about until we were 15.... the word Poosie is the least of our worries. You have near naked women on TV commercials for Girls Gone Wild yet SumPoosie Energy Drink in the Beer isle is just too much to imagine... where do you people live??? SumPoosie in a bar where blowjobs and sex on the beach has been ordered for years is a big deal ??? SumPoosie in a convenience store where they sell all kinds of speed, condoms, liquor, cigarettes and porn magazines is too much too???
    By the way liquor and cigarettes kill half a million people a year... where is the outrage?Poosie Galore was the name of a bond girl back in the 1960's !!! But SumPoosie is too much... come on..... anyway the POINT I was making is that the review should be on the CONTENTS of what is inside. Its a shame that such a fine made product gets slighted because of the name Poosie. I just don't focking get it.

    If beverages were valued based on taste alone, neither Red Bull, Coke, or Pepsi would be popular drinks...

    In all seriousness, the comments in the review weren't about being offended or something like that. The product is a novelty product, which is fine if you'll accept that it's just that. It probably can make some $$$, but this isn't a product that can compete with mainstream drinks.

    Ok... then what were the comments about? Why give only 2 stars? The look of the can? The taste of the drink? That is what the review should be based on. Is there a better looking, smelling or tasting energy drink? Novelty drinks as you call them get a lower score no matter what? The category is somehow doomed by Bevnet? Nothing is good or bad except by comparison... when compared with others it gets 2 stars? Based... on ... what?
