Schoolgirl Rush


Your last energy drink just wasn’t Mr. Right. He gave you wings and swept you off your feet. Until you came crashing down a few hours later.

The one before that had you jamming from meeting to pau hana session like a high-octane rock star. But it only lasted one night.

Your ideal drink? One that brings out your best side – that rosy-outlook, feel-like-you-can-run-a-marathon version of yourself that comes after a great first date or a good night’s uninterrupted sleep.

We know one you might want to give a shot.

Kona Red is a new, locally-developed energy drink that’s made from Kona coffee fruit — the berry that surrounds the coffee bean. Once it's separated from the bean, the fruit is formulated into an extract that its makers say is a new superfruit, packed with tons of antioxidants and other health benefits.

So, sure, these Kona types know how to give you a boost—the region’s Joe is your standing 3 p.m. date. But Kona Red has no caffeine, just the fruit extract, blended with Maui sugar and water — with no high-fructose corn syrup or unnecessary chemicals.

Which means you’ll get a nice rush – but no pulse-racing, first-time jitters.
Sounds like just your kind of heartthrob.

Kona Red is available at Martin and MacArthur stores and other select retailers. Click here for more information.
