    I'm looking at distributing an energy drink and have narrowed the field down to power-horse, source burn and gofast. anyone have any experience with these?

    Any interest in trying a new energy drink before making a final decision?

    Of the three, Power-Horse is the only one I have seen sell. That doesnt mean I see it sell well, but the only one that does have some re-orders. Source Burn, I have seen in stores that buy it from their local cash&carry, and it sits there. Go Fast will eventually sell, after a few years, and then leave their sliders for everyone else to use. Power Horse has used counter top fridges in the field, and plays off Red Bull me-too angle.

    Thanks for your input. What do you mean when you say that gofast will sell after 3 years then leave their sliders empty? Is this a trend of the distributors moving on to other drinks or?????

    Thanks.

    Has anyone out there seen impulse energy drink out there? If so, how is it doing? Does anyone out there distribute an energy drink beside RB and SP? If so, how's it doing?

    Try to make it to the NACS show in Las Vegas next week. You will see more energy drinks than you can shake a stick at.

    Before you make a decision consider this: A distributor is responsible for getting a product on the shelf...the manufacturer is responsible for moving it off the shelf. Ask them what they are/will do to promote the brand and get it in the consumers hands.

    I've seen goFast in the US and in Canada, but they don't sell, and the taste and kick are kinda weak.

    I disagree, the taste is the best i've tasted. The kick isn't instant but sustained. The packaging is nice and i like how its branded with active sports.

    I tried BooKoo @ the NACS show. Tasted good, looks like a winner.

    We launched the BooKoo Wild Berry last week. It was widely accepted and initial sell through looks good. I am not a Monster drinker but I think the Wild Berry will attract those consumers.
