    Sobe No Fear

    Is it just me or is No Fear the worst tasting energy drink ever. It tasted bitter and just all around bad when i had it.

    I saw a 24oz Diet Rockstar at the grocery store the other day.

    I've never seen Monster in 8oz cans either. Perhaps they're only doing that in certain areas? I've seen Rockstar 8oz out here in SoCal...but not Monster.

    Don't you mean Redbull? I've NEVER seen a 8oz Monster. Funny stuff: I went to the store to get a monster and for some reason they only have lo-carb so I bought it and it tasted better than orig. monster, hmm... </font>[/QUOTE]There are definitely 8.3oz Monster cans out there. It was a big push in early 2006.

    Fair enough! When you're right, you're right.

    Can we never bring up KMX again? That had to be the pinnicle of brand miss-management not to mention a disgusting product.

    Although Coke did have enough sense to realize that their 8oz wasn't working (ditched KMX), and came out with a 16oz (Full Throttle). Unlike Pepsi who lost a good year or 2 spinning their wheels with their below average (sales wise) 8oz packages.

    Yes and no. Coke "spun" their wheels for a few years after KMX (had to fail with Blue also before they gave up)...Full Throttle took a WHILE to come out. During that time, Pepsi still had energy out there selling. Not as fast as the other brands like RB, RS, Monster of course, but they were making money.

    Pepsi will continue to be a player in the category, although not one of the biggest. Which is okay, they can't dominate every non carb category!! Someone else has to have a chance!

    8oz, 16oz, 24oz. it really doesn't matter..the bottom line is Pepsi is the red headed step child of the E. drink category right now and getting beat down by all the major players in the category.

    You mean like KMX and KMX Blew? If you're going to attack Pepsi's 8oz brands you can't leave out the fact that the first major energy flop came from Coke!! And Rockstar 8oz ARE still available in certain markets...

    I would say Amp 8oz can go away now that there are 16oz cans and 24oz on the way. With A-rush its a different story...I would say ditch the 8oz when the 16oz comes out (soon in this market). Until then, might as well keep it. It may not be breaking any sales records, but every sale still results in good profits!

    yep, will be burying it in the same cemetary as EVERY 8oz energy drink Pepsi ever came out with.

    Only difference being Rockstar realized it wasn't working and cut the chord quick, where as Pepsi allowed their 8oz e.drinks to die a SLOWWW, PAINFUL, DEATH!!
