    I've heard about Hansens trying a new coffee beverage. Do you know the name? Flavors? What size can?

    Monster is halfway decent, but I much prefer Amp. Or Vault.

    When I was in school, surge did some big campus pushes like that. I got a lot of free Surge a time or two. Really enjoyed it. I think I like Vault better, though.

    I like how the big boys go to the schools and act like your buddy and give out free samples and tell the kids "this is a special marketing campaign and we wanted you to be the first to try it" all the while they are doing it on 100's possibly 1000's of campuses throughout the US. (Damn I wish I had that kind of money to promote my drink!!! LOL)
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

    LOL
    On the same vain. Moon's ago when I was under the legal age for tobacco;I lived smack dab in the middle one of the very posh area's of Chicago's Gold Coast. I lived 1/2 block from Water Tower Place and the John Hancock building.

    From time to time (actually quit often) various cigarette brands passed out sample packs of smokes. Some times a pack of 5 or even a full pack. I never had a problem getting smokes when I wanted them.LOL I got hooked on Camel Lights because one summer they passed CL for a good month.

    I can relate to Greg's post. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    BTW, Monster Energy Drink is now in Mexico in all the Wal-Mart stores (Wal-Mart, Bodega Aurrera and Superama), how does it taste like?

    I like Monster. The Lo-carb version is sometimes better than the orignal, and the Khaos Energy Juice is my favorite.

    Monster Assault is, IMO awful and makes me sick.

    Jlynnefrank - the link you posted was to "Hansen Brothers Coffee" which isn't the same Hansens company we were talking about. I'm talking about Hansens who makes Monster energy drinks...they are rumored to have a coffee beverage coming for 2007...

    First... I gott reply to this directly:

    Vault isn't an energy drink. It's simply Coke's form of Mt. Dew with a ton of false advertising. Check the ingredients some time.


    And to the actual topic...
    Monster is good. Very good, actually, if you prefer things a bit sweet. Works faster (it's an energy drink, afterall) than coffee for the most part, and you'll never risk spilling it all over your pants and burning sensitive areas.
    Just another consumer,<br />Ssol
