    Any New Energy Drinks?

    Any one heard of a new ED?
    There seems to be a lull. Perhaps no one can think of a new name.
    I think I heard something about "mad green monkey" or what it Donkey...

    IMO, It is double the price because it earned the right to be double the price. RB, whether most folks want to admit it or not, didn't create the energy drink category.....they just marketed it better than anyone else and created the larger appeal for energy drinks.

    What does it matter how much it cost to make RB? How much does it cost to make a Ford Truck, the #1 Selling truck in America? Sure it may cost in real labor dollars and material cost $8000 to make a high end model, however, you must take into account everything Ford must pay to create the stage to build the vehicle. Employee benefits alone add about 7-10 K per vehicle. Then you add in advertising, salaries, R & D, shareholder return , etc
    So it goes with RB Energy drink. The Overhead and ROI to sell $2billion worth of ED's is reflected in its wholesale and retail price.
    It doesn't matter that it may only cost .09 cents per can to make......which I believe I am pretty close to accurate on that, RB is a business and is primarily, last time I checked, a FOR PROFIT ENTITY!

    Big Jay doing a little "advertising".........

    i was actually a consultant in the production and development of rage, they sent me samples, and i agreed on the taste and graphics, this was probably in 2006.

    Due the small quantity of ingredients, and the huge volume that RB does, it actually costs a lot less to make a case of RB than probably any other ED.

    The cost is not a factor, which is about the same as hundred other similar drinks.
    It is the brand RB which people perceive as "the" energy drink for being one of the first, so RB can set its own price.

    The other day I saw Mad Croc at the $.99c store at "2 for $.99c". It has the same ingredients and even made in Austria like RB.

    Well.. SumPoosie Cat Energy Drink has been around since 2001 but the bottle is back and the packaging and design is still like no other. After we roll out the 2008 Edition look for us to come out with a brand new energy drink that will again stretch the limits of packaging and design.
