Caffiend: Ol' Glory
There are so many energy drinks on the market these days, and so few that truly stand out -- even visually. A walk down the energy drink aisle at the store becomes a monotonous montage of black and silver aluminum, decorated with various logos in bright orange and florescent green.
But the Ol' Glory energy drink is eye-catching. The can's design is a bold red, white, and blue rendering of the United States of America flag, with an ad for the Army National Guard across the top. The pledge of allegiance is printed on one side, along with a blurb about how Ol' Glory donates a portion of all sales to Operation Homefront, an organization that provides financial assistance to military families.
At just 99 cents, the Ol' Glory energy drink is about $1.50 less than other drinks on the market. With its refreshing, zesty flavor and sustained energy blend, Ol' Glory could provide some good competition for the countless other energy drinks flooding store shelves -- and for a good cause, too.
