Deton8 Energy

I know it’s been a while since I posted a review but it’s been crazy at work and let’s get back to business.

Deton8This fine Deton8 Energy drink came from a C-store down in Georgia that had the cashier enclosed in bullet proof glass!

First crack of the can and you get the common Red Bull aroma that we are all so familiar with!
D8 has an orange’ish gold color
Fruitier tasting than Red Bull
Has more carbonation at the back of tongue
Finishes really clean –  less than 15 seconds
Decent lookingl can – black with green explosion
A guest taster in the EDG labs felt this would go great with vodka

D8 is kinda spare on the ingredients, no vitamins, ginseng, guarana ect… it’s good tasting drink with 76mg of caffeine.  if you need maximum energy for a late night road trip, this is NOT your drink.

Ingredients: Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, malic acid, taurine,
Sodium citrate, natural and artificial flavor, caffeine, potassium benzoate (a pre-
servative), Inositol, niacin amide (vitamin B3), caramel color, D-calcium
pantothenate (vitamin B5), Pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6), Yellow 5,
Red 40, cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12)

MotoGP satellite squad becomes Monster Yamaha Tech 3

Looks like Monster is back in the MotoGP arena for 2009. Rossi has signed a personal deal with them for a “M” claw on his helmet…. BUT now Monster will have 2 full sponsored machines on the grid!!!
Yamaha’s Tech 3 satellite team have reached a two-year title sponsorship agreement with energy drink brand Monster, which will see the squad rebranded as Monster Yamaha Tech 3 from the 2009 season onwards.
The team, headed by Herve Poncharal and running riders Colin Edwards and James Toseland, have been one of the more successful satellite efforts in recent seasons, and now have the strong backing of America’s number one by-volume sales energy drink factory behind them as they attempt another strong campaign in the MotoGP premier class. Their bikes will be decked out with the Monster Energy M-Claw logo, most recently placed on Yamaha factory rider Valentino Rossi’s helmet in a personal sponsorship deal.
“It’s great to be linked with a growing brand such as Monster Energy, which has such a strong image and a big profile,” says Poncharal of the agreement. “Monster are very keen to support MotoGP and I’m sure that our partnership will prove to be very successful. Our aims are to go even better than in 2008, and thanks to this agreement we are highly motivated to do so.”
The attraction of sponsoring the team was explained by Monster Energy President Mark Hall, with the personalities involved in the project giving strong pulling power to the project.
“Both Colin and James have built huge followings throughout their careers and they are extremely popular riders, so Monster Energy is pleased to become part of their continued efforts through our partnership with the Tech 3 Yamaha team for the upcoming ‘09 MotoGP season,” comments Hall.
“Tech 3 has a highly successful track record as one of MotoGP’s premier teams and will provide a solid platform for Monster Energy as we continue to develop our brand image globally.”
