Trend Observation: Towards non-caffeinated energy drinks


Information is becoming easier to access, and people are getting more knowledgeable than before with the passage of time. Thanks to the internet. It was easier for firms in the past to hide the negativities of their products, but that seems impossible now. Information is readily available through different mediums; people are starting to understand the side effects of products such as energy drinks.

We all know that caffeine is injurious for health, and the huge amount of caffeine energy drinks have is bound to affect health negatively. Companies have started to take this into consideration. Monster Beverage Corporation plans to launch a non-caffeinated energy drink (Monster Unleaded) this year in US. Research shows that the caffeine gives a temporary boost to energy levels but has long-term disadvantages like laziness and addiction. Therefore, Monster has come up with a fix for energy drink consumers concerned about the caffeine intake. They have decided to cater to the health conscious consumers by introducing Monster Unleaded. This line extension will help diversify the consumer base of Monster drinks and females will now be a new target market.

Another company, Tru Brain, has also launched their energy drink that is non-caffeinated. It is promoted under the tag of Think Brain. The main idea behind the chosen name is to pass on the message that this drink even enhances the cognitive skills of individuals besides being non-caffeinated.




Manufacturers are giving special attention to the changing mindset of the consumers. Healthy diet trend is picking up pace in the beverage sector and is giving a chance to companies to expand their customer base; elderly men and females are now the new target market for non-caffeinated energy drinks.

Craft Beer Trend Moving Towards Larger Bottles

Several new, high-profile breweries are putting their product only in so-called large-format bottles. Dogfish Head Brewery, one of the bigger, better-known craft breweries in the country, will soon dedicate one of its two bottle-filling lines just to the 750-milliliter format.

The trend toward large bottles is part of what is being called the “wine-ification” of beer, the push by many brewers to make their product as respectable to pair with braised short ribs as is a nice Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and at a price to match. Bottles sell for as much as $30 in stores and much more on restaurant menus.

But they are getting a chilly reception from many drinkers. Internet message boards dedicated to craft beer are replete with complaints that large bottlesare too expensive and, thanks to their typically higher alcohol content, a challenge to finish in one sitting. Unlike wine, a beer is nearly impossible to recork.

The backlash is particularly troublesome for merchants and restaurateurs, who say it can be hard to persuade customers to commit to these big, boozy beers. “They’ll say, ‘I wish that came in a smaller bottle, because that would just ruin the night for me,’ ” said Ben Granger, the owner of Bierkraft, a craft-beer store in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Last year, only about 3.5 percent of craft beer was sold in 22-ounce bottles, the most common large-format size, according to the market research firm SymphonyIRI. But craft-beer sales in general are booming (at about 12 percent a year, while the overall beer market remains flat), and many brewers are enthusiastic about big bottles.

“We do believe in the future of this format,” said Sam Calagione, the founder and chief executive of Dogfish Head, in Milton, Del.

Brewers have many reasons to go big. Prestige, for one: high-end craft beer is being made with ever more exotic ingredients, like cacao nibs and imported honey, and it is often aged in whiskey or wine barrels. After all that, why hide it in an anonymous six-pack-size bottle?

Researcher claims he can predict the Next Big Thing on Twitter

An MIT professor believes he has built an algorithm that will make it possible to predict which topics will trend on Twitter anywhere from 90 minutes to four hours before they're recognized by Twitter's own systems.

The future is no longer an entirely unknowable quantity, it seems. Or, at least, the future as it comes in 140 character chunks on a particular social media service. An MIT professor believes that he has created an algorithm that can predict with almost 100 percent accuracy what topics will end up trending on Twitter.

The algorithm is the work of Associate Professor Devavrat Shah and his student, Stanislav Nikolov, who believe that – if “trained” correctlym it will predict with 95 percent accuracy which topics will trend on Twitter within the next hour and a half before Twitter’s own internal algorithms pick them up, with some topics being predicted as far ahead of Twitter’s own recognition as four or five hours.

MIT’s own press release notes that “The algorithm could be of great interest to Twitter, which could charge a premium for ads linked to popular topics,” which is a mild understatement; it’s worth pointing out, as GigaOM does, that Nikolov is actually a Twitter employee, and therefore may have had a better idea of particular metrics – or what Twitter would find of great interest – than other outsiders. However, the MIT release goes on to suggest that it’s more than just Twitter that might be interested in the math that makes this thing run, saying that the algorithm ” represents a new approach to statistical analysis that could, in theory, apply to any quantity that varies over time: the duration of a bus ride, ticket sales for films, maybe even stock prices.”

Shah believes that his algorithm can be scaled or transferred onto “any sequence of measurements performed at regular intervals,” noting that – although the more complex the system it tries to predict the behavior of, the more sizable the computing power needed to do so accurately – “our computation scales proportionately with the data” and “it is perfectly suited to the modern computational framework.” Using Twitter as a test for the algorithm works in its favor, he says, because “the training sets are very small, but we still get strong results.” Because of the strength of those results, he remains confident that the same algorithm will work in any situation as long as the correct subset of data can be identified to train the system to recognize the right information.

Shah and Nikolov will be publicly presenting the algorithm at the upcoming Interdisciplinary Workshop on Information and Decision in Social Networks later this month at MIT, but even the announcement of its creation has people curious to see how successful it can be. Ashish Goel, a member of Twitter’s technical advisory board told MIT that “People go to social-media sites to find out what’s happening now, so in that sense, speeding up the process is something that is very useful.”

What is GastroPub?

The origin of the term gastropub is found through traditional English pubs that were primarily known for being drinking establishments. If pubs served food, the selection consisted of basic cold dishes, such as the ploughman’s lunch, that were offered primarily for their substance rather than flavor. Because pubs were popular gathering places, it was common for vendors to sell cockles, whelks, mussels, and other shellfish to pub patrons during the evening and closing time. In some occurrences, vendors’ products would be prepared by the pub and offered to its patrons. As time progressed the menu expanded to what is now commonly known as “pub grub,” including items such as steak and ale pie, shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, bangers and mash, burgers, and frites (also known as fries in America). Many of these items were created to compliment the already existing beers, wines, and spirits.

During the early 1990′s, two British chefs took the pub concept a step further coining the term/concept gastropub, combining the words gastronomy (meaning the practice or art of choosing, cooking, and eating good food) and pub, applying it to already existing pubs in hopes of attracting more clientele. These gastropubs would often take traditional pub grub fair and reinterpret them utilizing higher quality ingredients and innovative techniques. The beverage menu received upgrades as well, including selections from local microbreweries and specialty wineries.

With only a slight difference in prices in comparison to the traditional English watering hole, it gave people the ability to enjoy a vast selection of quality food and beverage with the ambiance and accessibility of the traditional pub. The concept appealed to many, eventually gaining popularity throughout London with many dining establishments adopting the concept.

In the early 2000′s, the gastropub concept made its way to the United States, adapting the menu to some of the American bar favorites, with many opening in food meccas throughout the country. Notable gastropubs in the United States include Father’s Office and The Lab at USC in California, The Spotted Pig in Manhattan, and Ford’s Filling Station in Culver City.

The snacking trend is one of the most influential ones affecting a range of businesses, from supermarkets and convenience stores to fast-food and other restaurants, and it’s being fueled by consumer demand.
