cans of Cocaine to change name

'Cocaine' energy drink to change name after pressure by 'the man'
WASHINGTON (AFP)

The maker of Cocaine Energy Drink announced Tuesday it was changing the name of the beverage in the face of pressure from officials and others who claimed it glamorized illegal drug use.

Redux Beverages LLC said its caffeine-loaded drink -- which contains no cocaine despite the name -- would get a new name but that the company would continue to fight for the right to bring back the "Cocaine" name.

コカイン・エナジードリンクのメーカーが、コカインという名前を使っているとのプレッシャーを受けて名前を変えるそうです。

メーカーによると、カフェインを含んでいるだけで、実際にはコカインは含まれていない。商品名を変えるが、コカインという名前を取り戻す為に戦うそうです。


缶コカインはちょっと飲んでみたい気もします。 eusa_think
多分、コーラとそんなに変わらないと思いますけど・・・ mrgreen

eBay では 35 ドルくらいの値段が付いているみたいです。

Energy drink fans get ready for a busy summer of experimentation. The new drink, deceivingly named Cocaine, made by a company based in Las Vegas (Vegas? What a shocker...) has caved in amidst massive pressure to change it's fiendish name. And while it does boast the highest caffeine level of any drink in drink history. it's comparative strength certainly comes from this company's marketing strategy. Changing it's name will take away from it's psychological advantage on the competition and thus creates an opening for drink producer Glaceau to step up and introduce their version of canned energy.
