Saw Stoked at a Flying J's in California this weekend. 4 facings, only 2-3 cans left per facing. Could this product be a sleeper that will surprise all of us that are focused on TrueBlue? I bought a can of Wind Chill and I must say it tasted way better than Red Bull or Monster. If you peruse the internet, you can find lots of things like this that give me some optimism about the product.
I know from others' inquiries that you are correct. I don't know the precise % of McLane's distribution for 711, but he is flat wrong.
But, then again, why would he let the facts get in the way of the desperation to make others panic the way he did?
Hey BRG, remember that the 10/10/07 2nd Quarter LBIX Pre$$ Release stated "We didn't do a great job with the initial listing of TrueBlue(r) with Kroger(r) stores. Our execution at store level was poor and, as a result, in mid-September we changed the broker responsible for Kroger(r) to the largest broker in America. For those of you who shop at Kroger(r) you will start seeing a much better presence and pull through there which should also help us continue to increase our listing base and sku counts with all of our chain customers. TrueBlue(r) 16 oz will soon appear nation-wide at 7-Eleven(r) stores providing an entirely new customer with exposure to that brand.''
Also BRG, remember that this NEW broker didn't fix the problems at Kroger & actually their effort resulted in the TrueBlue products being dropped by Kroger. And as to 7-11, you've already heard the NEW$ from posters here that 7-11 stores across the country have also dropped TrueBlue !!!!!
If you got all that off the top of your head I am sorry for all the bad things I said about you? But TNT the company which was going to get TB in stores all over the world and why is a good company like TNT working with Ralph the ass??
BRG asks "Where does TNT fit into the big picture with LBIX???"
WELL, since you asked, "TNT is one of the most commonly used explosives for military and industrial applications. It is valued because of its insensitivity to shock and friction, which reduces the risk of unexpected detonations. TNT melts at 80 °C (176 °F), far below the temperature at which it will spontaneously detonate, allowing it to be poured as well as safely combined with other explosives. TNT neither absorbs nor dissolves in water, which allows it to be used effectively in wet environments. Additionally, it is comparatively stable when compared to other high explosives."
So I gue$$ the answer is that the LBIX CEO plans to use it to blow the he!! out of the remaining value of your $hare$ !!!!!
Well stated. I am looking forward to the earnings release and news of more listings. Keep posting! The Insane dribble is getting tiresome. Regards, Tom
PS. I encourage everyone to call the 7-11 on Countyline Road in Warrington Pa. They have 16OZ TB and TB pom.
hotpanera states "There have been plenty of new listings this year which should be reaching stores (not all but many) around now. Until we get results for Q1 -- ending May 31 -- we won't really know the answer to many key questions, including how Stoked is doing, how many convenience stores are actually carrying TB, among many others."
I would rather base any investment decision on financial data that's been audited with hopefully a clean "OPINION" from the auditor for ALL U LONG$ benefit ... if the fiscal year's results reflect major adjustments or a qualified OPINION such as "Going Concern" i$$ues then ALL chips should be off the table, in my opinion.
As to what the 1st quarter tells you, just remember that you've been told a lot of things over the past few years by the LBIX CEO !!!!
