Could You Turn Down a $2.5B Partnership With Coca Cola – and Would You?

I think we can all agree that it’s a lot of money. Could you turn down a $2.5B partnership with Coca-Cola for your business? Furthermore, why would you? This is exactly what Harvard trained Phuong Tran, the deputy CEO of the THP Beverage Group, a leading beverage company in Vietnam did with her father. The THP Beverage Group Story I interviewed Phuong Tran this week who’s family turned down this offer to partner with Coca-Cola to produce their quality healthy drinks. She says they were initia...

REVIEW: Java Monster Swiss Chocolate

What is the Java Monster Swiss Chocolate? It promises “the taste of Swiss chocolate paired with premium coffee and cream and supercharged with our Monster Energy Blend.” It’s currently a Dollar General exclusive flavor. How is it? When poured, the color is the same as heavily creamed coffee, with a scent to match. The java flavor is strong without being overpowering. It’s not as tooth-cracklingly sweet as some other pre-made coffee beverages I’ve had, though it still has a “syrupy” charact...

QUICK REVIEW: Monster Pacific Punch Energy Juice

What is the Monster Pacific Punch Energy Juice? It’s a tropical fruit punch-flavored Monster Energy Juice that comes in a can that looks like the textbook margins of that person in the back of the class who’s great at drawing, but not good at paying attention in class. It has more fruit than a Carmen Miranda hat (Google her). There’s orange juice concentrate, apple juice concentrate, raspberry juice concentrate, guava puree, cherry juice concentrate, pineapple juice concentrate, and passionfr...

QUICK REVIEW: Red Bull Summer Edition Coconut Berry Energy Drink

What is it? Red Bull’s latest summer edition variety. It follows last year’s Grapefruit Twist. It combines artificial coconut and berry flavors into an energy drink that gives you wings. How is it? If you dislike artificial coconut because it smells and tastes as if you’re applying sunscreen with your tongue, then this is not for you. It’s a little surprising that coconut water wasn’t used. The coconut hit my nose and tongue hard enough that I was taken aback by it a little. But by the th...

QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Organic Strawberry Energy Drink

The Rockstar Organic Strawberry Energy Drink doesn’t come in a color that makes you think of strawberries. Instead, clear gummy bears or dirty fish tank water might come to mind. I was hesitant about drinking it, but not because of its color. I was uncertain because the original Rockstar Organic flavor, Island Fruit, is one of the worst tasting energy drinks I’ve had. I don’t remember what was so bad about it, but I do remember thinking to myself, “Do not buy this again.” But I really like thi...

How Brand Names and Descriptors Ease Adoption of New Technology

Susan Cantor and Kristen Nozell It is a well-documented theory that successful innovation occurs at the intersection of familiarity and newness. A disruptive technology is all well and good, but unless it’s adopted by your intended audience, it doesn’t create much impact. All but the most eager early adopters need a compelling reason to incorporate a new product or service into their lives – and that reason is much stronger if it falls within a context that is already understood. E-readers are ...

QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Pure Zero Lemonade Energy Drink

Rockstar Pure Zero Lemonade Energy Drink is something I’d imagine one would get from a first time lemonade stand owner who’s also using it as a front to distribute cocaine. I assume when you have a beginner’s lemonade stand/cocaine counter, the two products have to mix. So it has the flavor of mediocre lemonade, but also the ability to make your heart beat like it’s coming out of your chest. For those of you unfamiliar with the Rockstar Pure Zero line, it consists of energy drinks that have zer...

QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Ginger Brew Energy Drink

I took a deep breath and braced myself before my first sip of Rockstar Ginger Brew Energy Drink. With the name “Ginger Brew,” I expected the beverage to burn like every ginger beer I’ve tried. And I expected I’d say “Mmmm” and pretend to be cool because I was drinking a ginger beer, but screaming internally from the ginger burn going down my throat. But there was no burn, grimaces, silent screaming, tensing of muscles, or calls out to mommy, because I should’ve realized that “Ginger Brew” coul...

QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Revolt Killer Citrus Energy Drink

For years I’ve wanted a caffeinated 7Up or Sprite. YEARS. But despite my best efforts, which included whining under my breath to a cooler that was filled with 7Up and Sprite and begging on their Facebook pages, I haven’t had the chance to guzzle a clear lemon-lime soda with my favorite stimulant. But that’s no longer the case thanks to Rockstar Energy and its new Revolt Killer Citrus. A 16-ounce can has 240 milligrams of caffeine, which, if my math is correct, is 240 milligrams more than 7Up a...

SXSW 2016: Gatorade Lab Showcases Sports Fuel Innovation

Gatorade’s new brand theme is: “Your Game Is Our Lab.” But the PepsiCo-owned icon of sports drink is going much broader these days than just coming up with a new slogan. Gatorade is returning to its science-based roots at the same time that it is attempting to expand more broadly than ever before. Or, as FastCompany put it, Gatorade now is not just settling for “a new flavor, bottle shape, or miracle hangover cure, but … aiming to transition from just a drink to become the ultimate ‘sports ...

REVIEW: Java Monster Salted Caramel

Java Monster flavors are like Ben & Jerry’s flavors in that you could blindfold me in front of the store’s display case that holds them, spin me around multiple times while Dead or Alive’s “You Spin Me ‘Round” plays on the store’s P.A. system, allow me to randomly select a flavor, slap that flavor out of my hand, yell “bad doggie” at me, hand me a different flavor, and whatever that is it’ll be tasty. I’ve never had a horrible Ben & Jerry’s flavor, and after drinking the new Java Monster Salted...

REVIEW: Mountain Dew Midnight Grape Kickstart

I’d like to apologize to Mountain Dew Midnight Grape Kickstart. On several occasions, on this blog, out in public, and in a mirror, I’ve said the grape-flavored Mountain Dew Pitch Black is the best Mountain Dew flavor. So when I learned the brand was coming out with Midnight Grape Kickstart, I said to myself in the mirror, “YASSSSS!!! A grape-flavored Dew!!!” because I thought it would taste like my beloved Pitch Black. But after drinking it and comparing it with Pitch Black (which I received f...
