Albertsons is introducing a whole new kind of energy drink that I am scheduled to promote this weekend: Vacation in the Bottle (or VIB)
Yep, this weekend, I will be giving out samples for a relatively new product called, vacation in the bottle (wiered name for a drink eh).
What is Vacation in the Bottle (or VIB)?
VIB is a relatively new kind of "energy" drink that is supposed to help a person to relax. Tried the drink myself earlier today and it was pretty refreshing and can be useful if you are under stress as it is supposed to help with relaxition. The drink is low sugar (10g), carb free, has no caffine (most energy drinks have caffine in them by the way), and is low calories (only 40 calories). Of course, the drink is diet in nature (given the sugar free flavor) and so people looking for drinks with lots of sugar in them, may want to go with say a rockstar instead.
