  • End of February Big Lots

    So i stopped by there the other day. Now i dont know about most of you guys, but big lots has been pretty slow for me lately. the other day however they were totally stocked, probably 5x more than usual.
    Heres what i saw:
    howling monkey sugar free 6 packs-didn't pick one up, but heard it is interesting
    rip it chic-an attempt to get females in on ed's. Saw this at walgreen's alot with interesting flavor names. definitely a jab at tab energy, but kind of a pointless one
    vitamin energy- some of my favorites
    tampico- aimed at a hispanic market, highly sour and acidid, but good none the less.
    Rush sugar free- definitely not for everyone. reminds me of butter eww.
    a couple of other stragglers were there. Lots of regular bookoo,jugo and citrus. couple of mothers and some UFC energy drink.
    So a lot of variety. Anyone else have such luck?

        So what!! That kind of attitude is very misplaced in the field of energy drinks. Too many energy drink purchases are driven by whether people have heard of the drink... Red Bull ring any bells as an example?

        Fact is, there are TONS of energy drinks out there that kick the crap out of the Monsters, Rockstars, and Red Bulls. People just need to be more adventurous. How else are you going to figure out what your true favorite drink is? Just TRY IT

          My take is this......
          If it is at BIG LOTS....there is a reason it is there. Big Lots is not exactly a place you go to with your drink to build a brand.....it is usually the last place a drink goes to get a few remaining pennies back on investment. An ED retirement home if you will. The last place before the graveyard!

          Trying one isn't a bad idea, but don't allow yourself to get all caught up in the drink because most likely it is a goner.
          Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

            good find

            I'll have to get my wife to stop in there tomorrow. She used to pick me stuff up all the time at biglots but now my collection is so big she does not know what i have already. She did grab me the Boo Koo citrus and Jugo there last week though.

                yeah there almost all 60 cents too, so it isn't bad for those on a budget or just looking for a quick fix

                  My family looks out for me too. I just keep them supplied with printed lists of what I have in alphabetical order. They keep a list in their car and it works great. Maybe give it a try

                    lol

                    Well my wife does get agitated sometimes at my collecting but mostly she is supportive. My list is at 306 drinks(including shots, strips, powders).

                      Similar selection at the one here. Bookoo jugo, Ripit Chic, Mother, and so on.

                      I picked up one from Brooklyn Bottling called Tropical Fantasy. It's orange-pineapple. It has "just a buck" around the top of the can. Apparently they couldn't even sell it that cheaply - it was 60?? at Big Lots.

                        xenergy

                        The xenergy was in 8.4oz cans in a four pack. Never saw those before. My wife got me a 4 pack of the apple for 2 bucks.

                          My wife hates my energy drinks. I am not as crazy as some of you. I don't save the cans for a collection. I usually drink them them, and toss the can. But, my refrigerator has more energy drinks then food. So I think thats what makes my wife mad. My wife has yet bought me an energy drink. I smell a divorce soon.

                            $0.60....what kind of margin does Big Lots make?

                            I've always wondered, does Big Lots also carry drinks that actually do well on the market? Do they sell Monster, Rockstar?

                              it is cool

                              Yes my wife does get annoyed when another box arrives in the mail. I have an extra fridge in the garage foor drinks and it is about 50% energy drinks. I also have a cool stainless Red bull mini fridge filled with the smaller energy drinks. I have a spreadsheet going with all my drinks listed on it. It includes drinks, shots, gum ect(still have not gotten a hold of those energy potato chips yet). My list is over 300 now. Just my latest obsession. I figure my wife is happy because my last website/obsession was for a rock band and they flew me out of the country several times for shows. My energy drink obsession at least doesn't require trips overseas. As long as I stick to hogging up the garage I think I'm safe from divorce.
