Your local convenience store clerk won't point out to drink only half (like the girl at GNC did for me last week). There will be incidents and this will draw attention of politicians and the sort. Next think you know it's like ephedrine all over again. I realize you want a bigger market share but I think you are asking for trouble going this route. Of course I'm just a consumer and parent though. I remember being a kid though and I'm sure I would of downed 2 redlines looking for a rush when I was a stupid teen.
    REDLINE is a leader in the area in which you talk about. We are now shipping all our bottles with the Caps imprinted with the following:
    Caution: Read Entire label before drinking. Contains two servings.

    There is only so much you can do to protect the American public.

    Our Extreme versions already have the caffeine content in milligrams on them ahead of next years requirement. Our "Regular" line labels will have them as soon as we run out of current lables. Coke and Pepsi are just now debating to go ahead and make the label changes according to news reports.

    Now let me ask you this.....Did you read the label before, after or at any time during your REDLINE experience. Please be honest. 95% of people do not read labels.
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

      O yes I read the label. Me and a coworker split a bottle. I enjoyed it myself and so did my coworker. Helped get through a long 12hr shift. I just worry about stupid kids who won't read the label or will ignore it. Your warning is there and I give you props for that but that might not be enough. I hope your product does well and I will continue to purchase it at my local GNC. I will not purchase it at my local gas station/store however.

Now Greg you accused me of bashing you when all I was saying is you are where you belong and in your words say it's not for everyone, by the way my mom loves your supplement but I just am calling it like it is. I never said there was something wrong with RL I just know according to the FDA statement about EDs (see the cocaine E release) according to the claims RL makes you can not call your self an ED according to what I read about claims concerning the added supplements, so in turn that would make you a Diet/Workout Supplement and your priced for it too. Why you complaining?

        And like you said health bars, protein bars, and health supplements are being placed in the c-store, you must of been having a bad day I know you didn't mean it...

        First , perhaps bashing was the wrong choice of words to use. Perhaps disparage, disrespect, or just "dis" would have been better. I have seen you on this board numerous times refer to my drink as not really being an energy drink when I the manufacturer, markets it as such, sells it as such, labels it as such , etc, etc.

        Second, I feel like you are baiting me by throwing in the statement that "my mom loves your SUPPLEMENT".

        Third- Re-read the statement given by the FDA about Redux and Cocaine energy drink. It was called a supplement and marketed as such by the company. Furthermore, it was called a drug by the FDA because of information posted on Redux/Cocaines website. Cocaine was never "Cross Marketed" like REDLINE so you can't clearly state the similaries based on an article in the news paper.

        And what does price have to do with whether it is an energy drink or a supplement? Dom Perignon cost $200 a bottle, Brut cost $9.99 yet they are both Champagne.

        On my website where I do say that REDLINE is meant to treat, diagnose , or prevent any disease? We do not say anything of the sort. We do say that the ingredients in it can help you trigger mechanisms that help your body burn fat. That does not in its own right make it a supplement.

          I am not an ED drinker, but from these posts, I would have to say it's probably a good thing. As the stress and tension in this post can only be attributed to too much caffeine...lol

          Redline however seems to leave it's maker on a very tight wire and looks to also tighten your nerves to points that you may explode.

          I did however stop in GNC to see what drinks they had there. On one side of the store was a slew of ED's and on the other sitting all by it's lonesome on the shelf with muscle stuff was Redline. I also noticed Redline was WAY out of my price range as I consider ED's as a more potent version of soda, and I can't justify spending more than $2 on a miniature can of soda.

          Of course that's just my opinion, and I'm sure someone is about to have a nervous breakdown and tell me what ED's really are and justify how their ingredients are worth a gold mine.

          If you want me to spend more than $2 on a can of anything, it should quench my thirst and leave me feeling full. Oh yes, and it should also reimburse me for every other purchase...
          Sorry you mistake passion for anger.

          Redline sits alone in most GNC's due to our contract. Most ED's marketed towards the Gym goers fall short of the "old school" products that a lot of us remember. Part of our marketing is to be a stand alone product that does not need to be bunched with a group of drinks that we feel fall short of the intended purpose.

          Sorry about your feelings about ED's and cost. People like you are the reason that they make Hyundais and BMW's. Not everyone wants the cheapest thing out there and a lot of people are looking for quality and performance.
          Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

            I'm glad it helped you through your shift.

            If most people read a bottle of soda and its ingredients do you think it would stop them from purchasing it even though they do not know what in the world Potassium Benzoate, Citrus pectin, Acesulfame Potassium?????????

              Greg, all I have to say incase you have not noticed that obesity is a disease among Americans today, stated by the US department of health.... and if you’re not a supplement then why does it say it on the box "DIETARY SUPPLEMENT" or did you forget what you put on the box. I did not want to open this up but you keep coming back saying I'm bashing you please follow my post and remind me where I ever said your not "really" a ED until I looked into your brand and your trends and your packaging...IMO. I turned my mom on to the samples you sent me and she does like it, why do you have to lash at me? I must be touching a touchy subject.... and there is nothing wrong in being called a supplement.....Right Everyone??? I thought that would make you stronger in the market.

              That's what my MOM calls it.

              Also Brut is a sparkling wine not Champagne. In order to be REAL Champagne you must be produced in Champagne, FR. Just a little note for those that don't know.....Greg. Wouldn't want to miss-lead anyone...
