Energy drinks?
    #4142697 - 05/06/05 04:29 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Just out of curiosity, who enjoys these 'energy drinks'? Lately there's been about 4,000 new ones coming out daily by just about ever soft drink company. They've even gone so far to put "May become psychologically addictive" on the label, containing some pretty odd chemical's I've never heard of, and just about all of them are not approved by the FDA. With names like "Pimp Juice" and "Kronik", obviously marketing to the younger crowd. Personally, I had never heard of a lot of the supplements in them until they came out. Do they really work? Or is it just all that sugar and caffeine like any ordinary soft drink? Maybe it's placebo? What's you're take on them?

Also if you drink them, or have in the past. Whats you're favorite one? Mine would have to Amp by Mountain Dew, my fridge is packed with em, I drink one almost of morning and I don't know why :smirk:

Overall, I don't really care much for those NRG drinks... but there is only ONE that seems to stand out from the crowd as far as flavor and taste and overall quality:

The only NRG drink I'll actually enjoy.


You're right, there has been a flash-flood of all these sorts of drinks lately.

Trend of the times I suppose.

I've had Pimp juice, and it was great. It tasted like apple & papaya juice with the 'sweet tart' taste of red bull. It also is not carbonated.

Ah yeah I forgot to mention the ridiculous prices. Most are about $2.00-$3.00 for a 8-10oz can or whatever the size is. I buy Amp's in 4 packs and they're quite a bit cheaper.

I'm a fan of Monster, which, from reading the labels, has the most bang for the buck. I always get the lo-carb version, since it doesn't make sense to drink all the extra sugar when they almost taste the same.

Sparks isn't bad either, although since it has alcohol, it isn't exactly the best thing to drink before work/class. Some might argue that it makes going to work/class more fun, but I prefer to avoid DWIs.

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

I've had that Budweiser E. I think that's what it was called. I didn't like it, is kind of tasted like Budweiser, but what ever the hell else they put in it made it taste funny, can't quite put my finger on it.

Plus mixing things that are supposed to give you energy with alcohol is kind of an odd mixture.

I made the mistake of drinking a energy drinking after an intense couple of days of MDMA and partying and have never been so sick in my life. Ever since then I can't even smell ginsing or look at a energy drink without feeling a little sick.

Sorry to bump this old thread, just a note that I had to remove this image from SkorpivoMusterion's post.

Re: Hansen Beverage Company Trademark Infringement

To Whom It May Concern:

As I am sure you are aware, Hansen Beverage Company (“Hansen”) is responsible for the production of the Hansen brand juice, teas and energy drinks and the Monster brand energy drinks. Relative to this business, Hansen owns many valuable designs, trademarks, trade dress and copyrights, which it uses to identify and market its Hansen and Monster brand products (“the Hansen Marks”). The Hansen marks are of great value to Hansen, as they are used to indicate that goods or services are affiliated with and monitored by Hansen. Considering this, every time the Hansen marks appear in the marketplace, Hansen’s good name and reputation are on the line.

Legally, it is the responsibility of trademark owners to protect and control the use of their trademarks. Often the need and obligation to protect its marks places Hansen in a very difficult position. If Hansen allows its marks to be used in any way that does not signify that Hansen is the source of good or service, then the value and meaning of Hansen marks are diminished. If Hansen allows these issues to go unaddressed, it may lose its rights to the Hansen marks.

Hansen is fully aware of the fact that it would not be as successful as it is without the continued passion and devotion of Hansen and Monster enthusiasts. However, the way in which Hansen allows its trademarks to be used is strictly prescribed by law. Hansen simply cannot allow the Hansen marks to be used without its explicit authorization. For this reason, Hansen is forced to consistently monitor the use of the Hansen marks or risk losing ownership of those marks.

Continental Enterprises (“Continental”) has been engaged by Hansen to help control the use of its mark. You are receiving this letter because Continental has received information that you advertised and/or sold products bearing one or more of the Hansen marks, or confusingly similar derivations thereof. We understand that the inclusion of the Hansen marks on your product may have been an oversight. However, on behalf of Hansen, Continental must demand that you discontinue your advertisement and sale of these products.

Upon your receipt and review of this letter, please contact our offices so that we may work toward a resolution of the issue that is satisfactory to all parties involved.
