Pre-Order a Case of XS Gold for $35.88

October 17, 2008

XS Gold

Quixtar is now accepting pre-orders for XS Gold.

Twelve 8.4 ounce cans of XS Gold will cost $35.88, or $1 more per can over existing XS flavors. The product is being pitched as a fusion of energy drinks with functional beverages — whatever that means — and lists the benefits that I highlighted in my previous post.

$3 a can? There’s got to be some great stuff in this to have me pay that much on an ongoing basis! Looking at the nutritional information PDF, XS Gold has a Super Fruit Blend among its ingredients:

Ingredients: Carbonated Water, Super Fruit Blend(Acai Juice, Blackberry Juice Concentrate, Blueberry Juice Concentrate, Mangosteen Juice Concentrate, Pomegranate Juice Concentrate, and Red Grape Juice Concentrate), Taurine, Vitamin Mineral Blend(Calcium Chloride, Potassium Phosphate Dibasic, Magnesium Oxide, Ascorbic Acid, Pantothenic Acid, Niacin, Zinc Oxide, Pyrodoxine HCl, Cyanocobalamin, Manganese Sulfate, Folic Acid, Biotin, Chromium Chloride, Sodium Molybdate, and Sodium Selenite), L-Glutamine, Citric Acid, Natural Flavors, Adaptogenic Blend (Ashwagandha Extract, Eleutherococcus Senticosus, Panax Ginseng, Panax Quinquefolium, Schisandra, Astragalus, and Reishi), Acesulfame Potassium, Caffeine, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Sucralose, Red 40, and Blue 1.

Is it worth $3/can though? Is regular XS worth $2/can? I just had a tall glass of water and it cost me nothing. Nada. Zero. Zilch. It was refreshing and good for me. No, it doesn’t come fortified with 8000% of the RDA for Vitamin B12, nor does it have the super fruit acai nor mangosteen, but at zero dollars and free of additives, artificial sugar, etc., how can you beat that?

Well, Greg Duncan can sell XS Gold for $3 because he has a captive audience who will pay a premium for a product that’s “better” than an existing product he sells. He can do it, because IBOs will buy it.

    A fusion of energy drinks with functional beverages means it is both an energy drink and an antioxydant drink. I think you knew this, but wanted to be a smart ass. If you don’t care about the latest developments in energy and antioxydant drinks, stick with your water.

    Do you know what harmful things could be in your tap water?

    Of course, eSpring is a superior carbon filter that also has an ultraviolet light to kill organisms.

    The product is priced to compete with the closest competitors, such as Mona Vie and other functional drinks.

    I guess it you’d pay $4.00 a bottle for perfect water, then $3.00 for a can of XS gold is relatively cheap. LOL

    Tex, at least the rest of us have a brain.

    WARNING!

    Do NOT drink XS Gold and Perfect Water within a 2 hour period:

    The ‘anti-oxydent’ effects of XS Gold attack the ‘molecular bonded oxygen’ in PW!!

    Worst Case: total implosion of all molecular material, sucking all creation into a black hole (vs. just your money with old Amway products).

    Most Probably Case: you just spent $7 for a glass of watered down juice. But, if you need the PV: bottoms up!

    I haven’t purchased, and don’t plan to, one bottle of Perfect Water, and I’m not trying XS Gold until I know more about it. The rest of you SHARE a brain. Or at least a few brain cells. LOL

    Unlike tex who just has an empty space between the ears with a tape recording of “tools scam”.

    Unlike jc who just has an empty space between the ears with a perfect vacuum. LOL

    So Tex, in his first post, spouts out the standard ‘cult response’ that he has been trained to do supporting ‘fusion’ drinks…

    …and then says he doesn’t know enough about it.

    Yeah – we got that with the first post, but thanks for helping the Tex Transparency Initiative!

    pcj,

    Were you born stupid, or did you have to work on it?

    We can tell that both apply to you, Tex – so you’ll have to cut us smart people some slack if we are just amazed at your retardedness. It’s like you have a gift or something.

    Actually, you’re just a not-very-bright 50 year old Amway cultist who is very upset that after 15 years you have nothing but 10,000 tools and lots of debt to show for your efforts as a wannabe kingpin.

    Yawn.

    Yawn is tex’s way of saying I got schooled again and have no facts to back any of my claims.

  14. October 22, 2008 11:45 am

    Yawn is Tex’s way of saying I’m not going to address a repeated, baseless comment again, especially in a forum that has very few readers, and even fewer influential ones. LOL

    What was the repeated, baseless comment? You’re NOT a 50 year old failed Amway salesman with 10,000 tools and lots of debt because of your 15 year inability to build an Amcult business?

    That’s not baseless – JC had it right the first time what your ‘yawn’ means.

    As far as influential readers – rest assured that I’ll make sure everyone that you think is important knows you are a racist retard with delusions of grandeur who is attempting to use them to help set you up as a tool cult leader.

  16. October 23, 2008 9:31 pm

    Yawn. Yawn, and Yawn.

    Thanks for proving JC correct on that, Tex.

  18. October 24, 2008 8:21 am

    LOL —- Yawn.
