Supplement Review; West Coast Chill Energy Drink
West Coast Chill’s expansion into multi-location retailers has been fueled by the changing landscape in the energy drink sector. Today, more than ever, there is greater awareness by the consumer regarding the high amounts of caffeine and sugar contained by the current market leading energy drinks. Local, State, & Federal governmental agencies are scrambling to pass legislation that can limit how these companies go about their business. In addition, new data shows that diet soda drinkers are also flocking away from soft drinks as they are turned off by the side effects of artificial sweeteners. These consumers are also looking for a healthy alternative beverage. West Coast Chill Pure Energy’s growth has been from these consumers. The ability to sell to both current energy drink consumers and attracting those whom have previously avoided energy drinks, has been a great asset to the brand.
West Coast Chill, Inc. has begun deliveries of West Coast Chill Pure Energy to the Albertsons supermarket chain. Albertsons, with 1,119 supermarkets located in 29 states under 12 different banners, strives to be known as the favorite neighborhood food and drug retailer in every market where they do business, with helpful associates, competitive prices and high quality, fresh products.

First off if you read above it lists all the distributors and where you can get it. It looks to me like they are getting ready to go on Shark Tank lol!
Is it true can there really be a healthy energy drink?
Well, it looks like yes there is!
Sweetened with stevia it’s starting off good!
What about the taste? If you are looking for a monster energy drink replacement… Not going to happen! It tastes nothing like monster although the can looks very very similar!
Is it edible? Yes, you can tolerate it! Will it stop your monster urges? That’s yet to be seen! I bought 3 cans of West Coast Chill! After the first I am dying for a monster! But I don’t want to die so I am just saying no to monster right now.
Try one and tell me what you think! Is West Coast Chill here to stay? Or will it fade away in failure?
**Update** February 6th 2015
Had it again today, I really hate the taste but today I felt a super surge of energy and I don’t have a craving for monster. I just wished it tasted closer to monster.
