Dr Pepper Snapple Group Strikes Energy Drink Market With Venom

PLANO, Texas, June 10, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- Dr Pepper Snapple Group introduces Venom, an energy drink for those wanting to experience thrill seeking adventures. Available in Black Mamba, regular, and Mojave Rattler, low-carbohydrate/calorie, Venom provides the bite that hard-core energy drink fans demand.

"Venom will accelerate Dr Pepper Snapple's entry into the fast growing energy drink market by delivering a jolt of energy in new killer packaging," said Charlotte Dimery, director of marketing for Venom. "Its piercing energy that strikes back in a new re-sealable bottle delivers something new and functional in the competitive energy landscape."

Venom's 16.9 ounce re-sealable aluminum bottle allows consumers to enjoy the product during multiple occasions, unlike most energy drinks in cans.
