Go-Go Energy Drink Takes Centre Stage
VANCOUVER, CANADA - May 1, 2001 - Leading Brands, Inc is pleased to announce that it's newest entry into the energy drinks category is proving to be a real hit among the techno-generation, 15 - 25 yr old market who are constantly on the go.
Go-Go is a refreshingly light, carbonated, fruit flavoured beverage which provides a noticeable feeling of increased energy and alertness. This is achieved through a secret formula that combines herbs: Siberian Ginseng, Astragalus, Damaina, Ginkgo Biloba, Guarana, Muira Pauma, and Yerba Mate.
The popular drink comes in a slim, 8.4 oz./250ml enticing silver can featuring a provocative "Japanimated" girl.
Leading Brands has distributed the beverage exclusively for 2 months now and sales are definitely on the rise! Promotions and sampling programs are planned for this summer when sales of beverages like Go-Go will surely sky-rocket.
Presently, Go-Go is available at Mac's, London Drugs, IGA, Husky and Mohawk stores in Western Canada, and other selected retail and convenience stores throughout Canada.
Look for Go-Go and give it a try. You will be pleasantly
surprised and energized!
