    As far as the BMX thing goes I personally don't see it. I go back to price on this. My drink cost twice as much as most 16oz drinks. If a guy is buying ED's for his own nostalgic feelings concerning his days of youth riding a bike around a dirt track then so be it. But it remains that he must KNOW what he is buying. I have never just bought anything just to buy it and then try and figure out what it is later.
    It's not the nostalgic feelings he had, it's the TRUST of the brand name (NOT That He Did at all know what Redline was). Like the name Johnson & Johnson, a lot of small and large business have Johnson in the name. Johnson Doors, Johnson hardware, Johnson travel, and so on. It is a trusted brand name and I can name more then that. I was not trying to pin on you I was just trying to prove a point that 8oz was just not enough tasty Redline for that man. Like the girl that drank a bunch of 8oz drinks.

    QUESTION FOR ALL, since all this has started has anyone had this happen with a 16oz??? I would think it is much harder to get down a full 32oz of ED before felling it. When I buy a 44oz fountain I only get 24 to 27oz of soda because of the ice....IMO

      Extreme !!

      greg...posted

      but reread the blog again...the kid admits she was be reckless and irresponsible. She has a mental and possibly physiological dependency on caffeine, or what she thinks is a mental and physiological dependence. It could be a kid that wants everyone to think she is cool !

      greg regardless SHE STILL HAS A PROBLEM it doesn't matter what it is mental, psychological etc.. she still has a dependency on ed's AND THAT TO ME IS A PROBLEM !! 6-11 anywheres between 400mg-1200mg caffeine mixed with all that sugar !!

      The intent of the blog was to show you all that there is an issue in this country among all the others !! it is sad to know that the government will do very little about it until there are major deaths and the families of the victims will get backed by politicians ( because we all know they have to have a purpose in the circle ) and than there will be legislation passed for a c store owner to i.d. under age un educated ed users !! How does the c store owner know if the ed user is un educated ? DOES THE ED USER HAVE TO WALK AROUND WITH AN ED CARD ? EVERYTIME HE OR SHE PURCHASES AN ENERGY DRINK THE OWNER PUNCHES THE CARD !! NO MATTER WHAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A BLACK MARKET and a way for any persons to get anything they want !!!

        greg...JUST CAME ACROSS THIS !!

        ......The government is already knee deep in our personal lives. We need to take personal responibility for our own lives.
        The government will have all drink makers put the caffeine content on the labels next year of every drink made,supplement or not. Perhaps then we will move forward to having to teach people to read before they buy ED's because the manufacturer is to irresponsible to insure that its potential consume can read.

        THIS IS A START !!!!!

        It should be the responsibility of the supplier to let the perspective consumer know what is exactly in there product !!

        This should be regulated by the govt and approved by the FDA !! THIS WILL WEED ALL THE HARMFUL ED'S OUT ON THE MARKET !!

          I think there's a market, but it will be small compared to the rest of the energy drink market (maybe 10-15%).

          This will be the next step for caffeine addicts.

            interesting ?

            BriGuy.. i find it interesting that you think 10 - 15 % will be the portion of the " extreme " category !!

            Just curious how you came up with the number ? a guess perhaps ?

            thanks !!

              Climax:

              Just a guess. My hunch is that the heavy ED drinkers (such as myself) will transition over to the higher caffeine brands once they develop a high tolerance, and my hunch is that these heavy drinkers make up about 10-15% of the market.

              I think as the ED market expands, the potential market for high-caf brands will go up as well, but high-caf adoption will lag a bit behind ED adoption.

              Might be an interesting comparison looking at Starbucks: How many of their customers get doubleshots (or more) in their drinks?

                Thanks BriGuy20 for the reply you seem like an educated young man !

                But you do mention that you are a heavy e drinker in what sense, what makes you a heavy e drinker ?

                ** my guess is you are consuming 300-600mg caffeine per day that equates to 2-3 e drinks depending on which ones ofcourse , i am guessing 1 RS=360 & 2 RB's=160 **520mg there but i am going out on the limb and saying you are consuming more because of you mentioning your acceptance of tolerance towards ed's !! And more importantly are you active ? Or are you banging them out because you have a busy schedule & lifestyle to fulfill !!

                i appreciate your feedback !!

                  I'm a heavy ED drinker in the sense that I'm approaching on the order of 2 16oz per day or so (Monster at home, Red Bull at work). I seem to be developing a tolerance for caffeine, but not to an extent that it's tremendously noticeable.

                  I'm actually not very active beyond the demands of my job (bartender, which can get hectic on weekends), though beyond my job I'd say that my lifestyle isn't tremendously demanding.

                    thanks !!

                    Thanks for the feedback !! 2 Monsters & 1 RB interesting !!

                    i personally have a redline 6am.. very active...and a rejuvenating, recover type of drink with no caffeine at 1pm...So it's all about your lifestyle !! If your busy and you know you have to keep yourself going because you have a full agenda for the day. Than you have to do, what you have to do in order to fulfill your energy needs !!
