    Lol... there is no anti Red Bull words here just conversation and opinions. You have to wonder why Red Bull took so many years just to simply increase the size of their can? You can also wonder why it is taking so long to come up with another flavor. Surely it doesn't take that long to squeeze a orange into the can...

    You also have to marvel at what Hansen's has done... they are now number 1 in many markets and a few years ago few thought that could ever happen.
    The best news to me is that the market for drinks continue to grow. Monster continues to lead the way expanding its brand and now bringing exciting new flavors into the mix... I really like the creativity. Sales up 59% in the second Q.... wow.

      No RB hatin here

      Heck I bought a 4 pack and a bottle of Jager last weekend. I wonder how much RB makes through bars and clubs. I never see any other EDs in clubs except redbull and people drink a lot of it in various drinks. I never see anyone having a Monster and vodka or a Rockstar and vodka. No monster bombs or Rockstar blasters. I also watch all the bartenders and waitresses drink RB since it's handy. Has to be a lot of sales in this area. Still RB is overpriced so I never buy it unless is for use with alcohol. Maybe next time I'll try some Monster with some Jager. Not sure that will tast too good though.

        There is no doubt that Red Bull is the leader in the bar scene. They were the original in the bars, and even now there is very little competition. I mean, Applebee's has the Sobe Adrenaline drinks, but Jager Bombs, Cherry/Grape/Blueberry bombs or regular Vodka/Red Bull are always popular. I believe that Red Bull may even now be behind Monster in street sales, but it is the bar business that keeps them entrenched in the #1 spot.

          Monster

          Take into consideration that Monster has many line extenstions which will always increase sales figures. Of course AB will do the job off premise but seems they still can't get things going on premise. All A-B does is load up the bars with free cases of of product week after week. I'm seeing this happening in a lot of bars here in FLorida. This of course sets the trend for the bar owners to expect free goods from other companies.

          Just my 2 cents

            Tried it and no good, my friend but Monster does do well with white rum and vodka. RS will mix as a bomb but Juiced is really good that way.

                Im not a big Red Bull fan but don't count the bastards out yet. They branded the product so well that its instilled as "the one". Yes people know that it's expensive but their still buying it. I'm also sure RB will venture into line extentions one day.

                WNow on A-B they will def. do a great job off premise but still has yet to penetrate the on premise market. What i'm seeing in Florida is that A-B is giving the bars 2-5 case drops for free because it's a non alcoholic product. This is done on a continuos weekly basis. Why- because it's free and the bars will use it. Automatically it's instant branding in the bars. The bar owners are also making money because they are not paying for it and by A-B doing it this way they are putting a small dent in their competitors sales. A-B can afford to allocate hundreds if not thousands of cases for the on premise trade and writing it off as marketing/sampeling to grow their on premise business.

                Just my 2 cents!

                  No way could I order that. I'm a little old to be ordering Poosie bombs. Might try it at home though.
