The UFC has their own brand now:







I'm a bit surprised that Vince hasn't jumped on the enery drink bandwagon yet.

Maybe Vince learned a lesson from failing at peddling ICOPRO

Yes ff, but eating right and exercising requires--you know--effort. Why bother to put in effort when you can buy artificial energy in a can (which isn't nearly as high quality energy than the real thing) which is really about as unhealthful as anything you could stuff into a 16 oz. can and still sell as a foodstuff?

It's amazing to me how accurate the movie "Idiocracy" was in predicting the future.  Soon, we'll be watering our lawns with this shit.

I feel the need to clarify.  When I commented I find Red Bull the "best" - I enjoy its tastes the most and it's my favorite.  I don't drink them often, but when I do I can often get Nos or Monster in a "2 for $4" sale when Red Bull is at least $3.99 for less product.  So I realize this is garbage in, but when I want a "treat" I'd choose Red Bull if there was ever a sale, but if I "treat" myself to this crap it's often Monster.

The Red Bull company just advertises and claims a commission on every can. Other companies do the production, canning and distribution. Something like a third of the end cost though is advertising.

In Thailand, its original home, Red Bull is gorgeous - like liquid sugar. They have dozens of energy drinks there, it's much more established.

NOS is probably the best out there right now, I try to sell it in our markets, nope, people still want Monster and Redbull. Last year I tried to sell this:



Faygo puts it out, the cost on it is around .75 cent a can. I put it in our markets for $1.69 a can or 2 for $3.00. It tastes pretty freaking good, has the same stuff in it that Monster has, gives you just as good a boost. Went over like a lead balloon. I actually put it in at 2 of our bigger blue collar accounts, one was a bakery and one was a hosiery mill. The people there probably make on average $12 an hour. They wouldn't touch the stuff, I put ads u for it, I had the digital signage running on our kiosks promoting it, NOTHING..they still paid $2.99 for the Monster and Redbull...crazy..
I drink the sugar free ones.  Get them at Dollar Tree.  If we have the  money I get them and drink one first thing in the morning as I am not much opf a coffee drinker.  They taste good and I can get three of these for the price of one Monster.

Vince partnered up when Stacker put their energy drinks out.  Plus they did put out some WWE themed ones via Socko Energy Drinks which was owned by Bischoff and Hervey 7 years back. 


The Xyience(pronounced science) are actually pretty good.  Most are sugar free and I can often get 2 for $3 at a local gas station.  It was never actually owned by Zuffa but by the owners of Zuffa/UFC.  The Fertitta Brothers had acquired ownership of Xyience through bankruptcy court but it was recently sold to Big Red Soda and will no longer be affiliated with the UFC.

Know what you mean DFG. I'm closer to 44 years old then 43 these days and I feel better now then I did 15 years ago. I get up 3:30 AM to hit the gym 4 days a week and I'm outdoing guys half my age during my workouts. All that crap has like 8 cups of sugar in it and nothing even remotely healthy in it. I've been feeling so good that I'm might do some powerlifting meets.

The price will continue to go up as long as people buy it. If they stop the price magically go down or go on sale.

The Stacker ones were YJStinger.  Loved them, also loved those WWE Attitude drinks.  Still have an empty can of each somewhere.

The Stacker YJ Stinger drinks were hands down the best energy drinks ever made, they were like cocaine in a can. I miss those...

I can not drink it because of my heart condition but rarely drank it when I could because of the price, in the 90's when I ran a bar the distributor used to give me a couple freebies when they sent my bar order
