BDI Marketing announces retail debut of new mocha flavored Mini Thin Rush A.M. liquid energy shot


CARMEL, IN – July 24, 2008 – BDI Marketing, distributors of the popular Mini Thin Rush® family of energy products, announced today the August 1st, 2008 release of its new mocha flavored 2 ounce energy drink shot Mini Thin Rush® A.M.™. The announcement was made by Karen Windle-Burcham, President of BDI Marketing.

Designed to provide people on the go with a highly energizing morning pick me up via a convenient 2 ounce liquid shot, Mini Thin Rush A.M. features a tasty mocha flavor, is sugar-free, and contains less than one carb per serving. Most importantly, it provides 6 hours of energy with less liquid and without the commonly experienced crash that is characteristic with competing high-sugar energy drinks.

Delivering renewed and instant energy, Mini Thin Rush A.M. ingredients include mega doses of Caffeine, which acts to increase mental alertness, and helps to provide an increase in energy levels; L-Taurine, an important amino acid involved in a large number of metabolic processes in the visual pathways, the brain and nervous system, and cardiac function; Vitamins B6 and B12, which provide natural boosts of energy; and Niacin, which helps the body process carbohydrates and fat efficiently.

“Following on the popularity and success of our berry-flavored liquid energy shot, we are pleased to announce the introduction of Mini Thin Rush A.M.,” stated Ms. Windle-Burcham. “Although marketed as a morning pick me up alternative to coffee, Mini Thin Rush A.M., like coffee, can be enjoyed anytime throughout the day.”
