NEW YORK (AP) — If you don't like coffee or tea, Mountain Dewhas a new breakfast drink that might perk you up.
PepsiCo Inc. is rolling out a new drink called Kickstart this month that has Mountain Dew flavor but is made with 5 percent juice and Vitamins B and C, along with an extra jolt of caffeine.
The company, based in Purchase, N.Y., is hoping to boost sales by reaching Mountain Dew fans at a new time of day: morning.
PepsiCo said it doesn't consider Kickstart to be an energy drink, noting that it still has far less caffeine than drinks like Monster andRed Bull and none of the mysterious ingredients that have raised concerns among lawmakers and consumer advocates.
But Kickstart, which comes in flavors such as "energizing orange citrus" and "energizing fruit punch," could nevertheless give the company a side-door into the fast-growing energy drink market without getting tangled in any of its controversies. The drink comes in the same 16-ounce cans as popular energy drinks made by Monster Beverage Corp., which also offers options with juice content. And the TV ad features young men skateboarding, reminiscent of the marketing themes used by energy drink makers.
Simon Lowden, chief marketing officer for PepsiCo's Americas beverages, says the idea for Kickstart came about after the company learned through consumer research that Mountain Dew fans were looking for an alternative to traditional morning drinks such as coffee, tea and juice.
"They didn't really see anything that fit their needs," he said.
Lowden said Kickstart was developed independently from a Taco Bell breakfast drink introduced last year that combines Mountain Dew and orange juice. PepsiCo says Kickstart, which is carbonated, is also not a soda because its 5 percent juice content qualifies it to be considered a "juice drink" under guidelines set by the Food and Drug Administration. A spokeswoman for the FDA said the agency doesn't have definitions for what qualifies as a soda or an energy drink.
With the growth of energy drinks such as Monster and Red Bull expected to slow, Kickstart could also signal the emergence of a new category that plays off the promise of energy and other health benefits, said John Sicher, publisher of the trade journal Beverage Digest.
In a nod to the growing concerns about sugary drinks, for example, Kickstart also uses artificial sweeteners to reduce its caloric content to about half that of regular soda; a can has 80 calories.
"It's a very interesting experiment capturing a number of attributes," Sicher said, likening it to Starbucks' Refreshers drinks, which promise "natural energy" from green coffee extract.
The promise of "energy" has been a big seller in the beverage industry in recent years, with the energy drink market increasing 17 percent in 2011 even as broader soft drink consumption has continued to decline, according to Beverage Digest. PepsiCo and the Coca-Cola Co. have largely watched that growth from the sidelines, however, with players such as Monster Beverage and Red Bull dominating the market.
But the surging popularity of energy drinks has also led to sharper scrutiny. This summer, New York's attorney general launched an investigation into the marketing prices of energy drink makers including Monster and PepsiCo, which also makes Amp. Lawmakers and consumer advocacy groups have also called on the Food and Drug Administration to investigate the safety of the high levels of caffeine in energy drinks for younger people.
Although Kickstart may look like an energy drink, it has far less caffeine, at 92 milligrams for a 16-ounce can. A comparable amount of regular Mountain Dew would have 72 milligrams of caffeine while a can of PepsiCo's Amp energy drink has 142 milligrams, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.
By comparison, a 16-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee has 330 milligrams of caffeine.
I know some of you fools don't drink coffee(Chrissy) and you love a good old Mountain Dew to kick ya in the pants. This is prefect for your morning commute to work.  


I hope that everyone survived Snowmegeddon 2013! Since I didn't have power from Friday night at 9:30 till Sunday morning my weekend was actually kind of a loss.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Yes, that is a river of sea water rushing by my house at high tide on Friday night:

2. You never expect to see your breath inside your house and you never expect your house to get down to 41 degrees either.
3. This guy doesn't seem to mind the snow storm:

4. Nothing is worse than a restaurant opening at 6:00 and basically seating everyone at the same time. Mistakes and lack of service are gonna happen.
5. I heard the Quincy Fire department is hiring.
6. I can't believe that dude Macklemore is white.
7. Chrissy may not have power until Tuesday/Wednesday. Thank god he has plenty of beer and a wood burning stove.
8. New snow boots suck. I feel like I am walking in ski boots. Hey Columbia blow me.
9. Does anyone know of any loft type condos for sale in or around Boston. Dave and Doe want to come back to Mass and want a loft unit.
10. Nothing like getting new pillows.
11. Every one in my neighborhood has a snow blower and man they look like fun. I think that's my next big purchase.
12. Spoke to my neighbor about repaving the drive way. Lets hope that happens sooner rather than later.
13. There is nothing fancy about Margaritas but man I like it there.
14. Katie wasn't as surprised about her New Kids tickets as I thought she would be.
15. I know everyone freaks out about storms. They buy Milk, bread and eggs at the grocery store. Well guess what I made French Toast. So suck it!
16. Nothing quite like seeing your neighbors drinking Bourbon and Bud Heavies at 9:30 am.
17. I am compiling burger joints for blog review. So if you have any suggestions please let me know. I am thinking maybe 1 list of chain restaurants and 1 of other establishments.
18. The dart team is back and revamped. I heard that Chrissy turned them down to join the roster. They tied 6-6 this past week. Next week they are at Rags. Hope you guys can make it.

Hope everyone was safe in the storm.
I have been doing wellness checks on Chrissy. He is delusionally drunk. He told me his dog Stella has started talking back  to him...keep ya posted.

I hope everyone is out there celebrating black history month.Make sure you buy your colored friends some coffee or a beer, and don't forget to give out some hugs.

This is what I learned this weekend:
1. Texans like their beers, even at 10:00 am.
2. 1% of Americans are allergic to alcohol. That number seems surprisingly low considering how man people are allergic to god damn peanuts.
3. I hate each and every Harbaugh. That safety cost Mikey T and I a square.
4. Note to self: when you order a burger medium and it comes back purple, do not try to eat around the raw hamburger, even if they have $3 beers. You will probably be shitting and puking before the days over:

 5. When tipping at an open bar back to $5 tips are encouraged so that you can get straight vodka(with a lime).
6. It wouldn't be a wedding if I didn't have my tie on my head (obviously my eyes are almost closed):
7. Yes, Chrissy I know this is being posted on Tuesday.
8. I did hear that when the blog is not posted by noon on Monday a little piece of one of the readers dies on the inside.
9. The Bruins doing their best to get fans back behind them:
10. I did some scouting for the Worlds Largest Outdoor Cocktail party.  I plan to go this year.
11. Jacksonville is fucking huge. Wanted to go to a bar Saturday during the day and it was 19.1 miles from where the hotel was. THAT WAS IN THE SAME CITY.
12. Looks like Super P is Pembroke bound.
13. Yes people my hair gets curly when its wet.  This shit is natural no perms here!
14. Not good when your fence goes down during a wind storm(even  if the fence is actually your neighbors):
15. Traveling with a suit in a garment bag sucks.
16. Temple Run 2 is way more fun than the original.
17. I know that the ladies love NKOTB but Chrissy may love them a little bit more. I believe he has tickets to both shows in June at the Garden.
18. Northeastern beat BU for the 1st time in 25 years in the Bean Pot.
19. I got asked to turn my ipod down on the plane. I guess the other guests in my immediate area weren't down with Tupac.
20. Airports are like little cities. I mean they have every fucking thing there.
21. Krystal burgers are like White Castle burgers. I enjoyed mine at the Atlanta airport.
22. People get over Gronk partying. If you were 23, almost 24, and a millionaire you would be out partying like a rock star too. I mean I would. Work hard and Party harder.
23. Welchie is out there, finding out anytime you attach the word "wedding" to anything it is instantly $2,000.
24. I am officially out on Shameless. The show was good at first but now its just recycled and lame.
25. Southie Rules is so bad but the kid who sleeps on the couch should have his own show.
26. Now I aint one to gossip but I heard Smiddy is getting backed up in his gambling and may be ducking the bookie.

That's all for now.  I am sure that I was drunk and forgot half the shit like I usually do.
Thanks again for reading...till next week!
