Energy drink wars; A Mother of all beverage wars

Love them or hate them, energy drinks appear to be hear for the long haul, both down under in Australia and in many parts of the world.

Australia is a red hot market for the feisty Red Bull, due in part to Aussie's love of sport and extreme sports, and the fact that Red Bull is entirely legal in Australia. That's right, some countries have outlawed the energy and caffeine fueled beverage.

Many would be energy drinks have attempted to tackle the bull over the past decade plus, but non have succeed. Once in a while a new entrant has a crack, usually to no avail.

It was circa 2005 in Sydney, Australia when adult entertainment powerhouse, Private Media, aimed to leverage off their adult themed background and launch Private Drinks, which by all accounts was a good drop, however they didn't last much longer than 6 months despite a concentrated media and marketing effort in collaboration with the likes of Sexpo!

One brand that is continuing to gain traction in the energy drink sector is Monster Energy. They have smartly got involved in niche extreme sports such as Monster Trucks. Get it! Say G'day to Monster Jam if you haven't already extreme sports lovers.

The idea is that if you need an extra life or boost, as you would in the world of monster truck racing, pro surfing, snowboarding and perhaps pro wrestling, go down a Monster.

A can or bottle of the typical energy drink contains about 5 times that of a cup of coffee, so you have been forewarned.
