#BadNamesForEnergyDrinks via Hashtag, You’re It!: @McMannofthePeop The Top Picks


Energy drinks really aren’t a new thing. I mean Hell, humans have been drinking coffee since the early 15th century. Even the original recipe for Coca-Cola had a small amount of cocaine in it. So sugary drinks with a little something extra in it give give you a jolt of energy have been with us for a while now. But the modern idea of energy drinks really started in 1985 with the introduction for Jolt Cola who’s tag line was “All the sugar and twice the caffeine”. With that drink the marketing for energy drinks began. Caffeine, energy, and hyper-focus were now the catchphrases of the day. Marketed to college kids to help study and gamers to help them on long campaigns. The energy drink market really started to take off in 1997 with the introduction of Red Bull. That little 8.4 ounce can sold like hotcakes in the U.S. Thus began the energy drink boom. Today the market for energy drinks has tons of brands, flavors, and types. You can get the regular drink, or energy shots, or tablets to add to water. We’ve all seen those Ed Hardy looking cans taking over our local gas station. You can very much tell who the target market is for those cans. With names like AMP, Bomb, G-Fuel, Monster, Venom, Sparks, Rockstar, NOS, and the classiest name out there….Pussy. *shakes head slowly* Already you can see how those names of energy drinks are going. So what could be worst? That’s what I asked Twitter for with this week’s “Hashtag, You’re It” with the tag #BadNamesForEnergyDrinks and Boy did you guys have some great answers. With over 1,600 responses to go thru I had my work cut out for me. We trended briefly at the #10 spot.
