  • MAJOR DISCOUNT on HEADSHOT ENERGY SHOT

    Hello guys, I'm new to this forums site. I'd like to share a little easter egg I found.
    It seems that the makers of Headshot Energy Shot, Impulse One, have had a little screw-up with production of their product. They apparently printed the wrong expiration date on a large percentage of their products, and have majorly discounted the mis-printed shots. To get in on this discount all you have to do is visit http://ineed.headshotenergyshot.com/

    Let me know if you use this!

        I don't think you understood the original post, it wasn't that they are selling material that has reached it expiration date, it was that the material was produced and the WRONG expiration date - which makes them unable to be issued to their distributors.

          IMHO, I would not act on this offer. In my world of beverage-dom,
          fresh dates/expiration dates are my Holy Grail. LOL

            I'm not saying to jump right in either - if you can't get a date right, what else is not correct during this run?!?! I was simpling refuting Sum Poosie's claim that the shots are a fad and they are all heading the way of the dollar store as he pointed out in other threads.

              Not exactly what I said jetset. Let me lay some facts down on you. I have a distributor that buys in large volume energy shots that are not selling for .25 cents each and sells them to the dollar stores for .45 If you check out the discount stores you will find more and more energy shots and brands each month.

              This is not an expanding category. Sales are dropping and the prices are coming down already and soon most will see this is just a fad. By the way I never said they will all end up in the dollar store.

              Now ... back to your post about the wrong expiration date. Lol...never mind ... I think I will pass.....lol.

                That is the beauty behind an open market, people see others making a profit off of an item so they hop into the channel thinking they can do the same thing and often find out that they can't - leading to items being sold to close out stores. This happens for all types of drinks, not just shots. I would like to know how many functional waters tried to emulate Vitamin Water, how many teas tried to emulate Arizona, the list goes on and on....it just happens to be that the shots are what is 'hot' at this time....but I don't feel that they are "beanie babies" as you so eloquently stated on another thread. Again, I feel that you are kicking yourself for not getting into this arena earlier - and all this insight and critique from somebody who is basically using a gimmick and sex to sell their product.....

                    You have to be kidding me.... I am just using a gimmick and sex ? Never mind that I use a glass container for my product or that I use the most expensive label in the industry or that I use REAL SUGAR to make the very best product I can... never mind all that... I am just using a gimmick and sex. Unreal.... SumPoosie Cat Energy Drink is just too much for you? Have you listened to any rap songs lately ?

                    If I was just using a gimmick and sex I wouldn't have blended 11 different flavors to come up with the perfect mixer with Alcohol. I would have stuck it in a plastic bottle with a paper label and made it taste like every other energy drink using HFCS. And then I would have produced it a foreign country to save money on production instead of Manufacturing in the US and paying .65 cents a pound for Real Sugar.

                    No energy drink uses more expensive packaging and none use better ingredients and unlike many I manufacture my product right here in the US. Gimmick and sex.... lol... maybe you haven't seen a godaddy commercial lately. Get out much ?

                      Wow, bit defensive?!?! I didn't say others aren't using sex to sell, but with a name like Sum Poosie and the bottle models, it is obvious what you are using to sell the product. I also never said I was offended by it or am a hermit living under a rock, just that before you knock a category that you are not in maybe you should step back a bit. I am very familiar with your product, flavor, label, etc.....Also, Sugar, HFCS, doesn't really matter to the body since both of them are treated exactly the same and all the hype is due to media reports and propaganda from one side or the other. Sucrose is a disaccharice of glucose and fructose and HFCS 55 is 55% Fructose and 45% glucose, so basically the same (especially to the body) - so save the sales pitch for those who don't know better.

                        If the date was printed wrong the co-packer would have to eat it. They obviously didn't have the sell thru they expected and are now looking for a way out that will save face for the brand. They don't want to admit their product doesn't move fast enough to avoid experation because distributors will lose faith in the brand or see the direction it's heading. They should use them as freebies or dump em.
                        Thats just my 2 cents

                          Save the sales pitch ? Are you new to this jetset or are you not aware that beverages taste better with Real Sugar compared to HFCS ? I don't use Real Sugar because its better for you I use it because it makes my product taste better. Try a can of Pepsi in a can made with HFCS... and then try a bottle of Pepsi made with Real Sugar and get back with me on which one taste better.....enough said.

                              My source tells me that they were co-packed out of country and had to be pre-paid. That may explain their strategy.
