Default Re: Anybody tried Cocaine?

I'm currently working on a proposal and market analysis for energy drinks. Cocaine must be new, but I hear Sparks energy drink has a blend of alcohol in it. That's what one of my coworker is telling me. If so, that energy drink will be scraped from my questionnaire.

The name "cocaine" is too much for the US market to handle simply because of it's referral to the actual drug used. That's one of the main reason why it's pulled. But I did see it once on a commericial and only once. It caught my attention for sure so marketing was ingenius, but stupid at the same time.

I feel that this is the single best reason to call anything anything... just cause it's funny.

Haha, I was just about to post the same thing. What a load of BS though, someone should file against them for false advertising

it isnt illegal, since sports\soft\energy drinks are "supplements"(vitamins, aka over the counter stuff) so they can say whatever they want about them as long as the drink isnt seriously harmful

I've seen someone with it at school, but I've never tried it. Only tried Nos and another one that tastes like strong Sprite (forgot the name). Nos is pretty strong to me.
