Imported into the United States by Dolce Beverage Group LLC, Kick Energy Drink is sweetened with a blend of sucrose, glucose and fructose, resulting in a less sweet aftertaste compared with leading energy drinks, the company says. An 8.4-ounce can has a suggested retail price between $1.59 and $1.79. The beverage also is available in a four-pack of 8.4-ounce cans for $5.69 and a 16.9-ounce can for $2.49. Kick Energy Drink currently is available in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana, with plans to expand into additional markets in early 2013.
