DeCrescente Distributing Company (DDC) is excited to announce a partnership with VPX Sports to distribute BANG® Energy Drink, a great-tasting 16-ounce carbonated beverage formulated to fuel the brain and body. BANG® is now available in 12 unique flavors like Sour Heads and Purple Haze throughout the Capital Region.

“BANG® is not your typical high-sugar, health-robbing beverage. Rather, BANG® consists of several patent-pending compounds and patented compositions intelligently designed to deliver results without the sugar-induced metabolic mayhem and crash,” explains Jack Owoc, CEO and chief science officer of VPX Sports.

Current commercially available energy drinks use high levels of sugar, which instantly boost your insulin levels. When the caffeine and sugar leaves your body, your hormone levels normalize, which causes the fatigue known as the “crash.” BANG® incorporates creatine, glutamine and other amino acids including BCAA’s (branched-chain amino acids) that provide both immediate and long-term energy without the crash. BANG® goes above and beyond the expectations of typical short-term energy beverages in this category.

BANG® contains 300mg of caffeine, 0 sugar, 0 carbs and 0 calories. It’s ideal for gamers, fitness enthusiasts, athletes, extreme sports, CrossFit, and as a pre-workout for bodybuilders or anyone desiring a delicious-tasting carbonated beverage that doesn’t contain sugar. BANG® provides clean energy, laser-sharp focus and no sugar-induced crashes.

“The beverage innovators at VPX Sports have redefined the energy drink category with this well-researched and effective energy drink,” said DDC General Manager, Russ Teplitzky. “BANG® tastes incredible and I can’t wait for consumers to try it!”

The growth of BANG® has been phenomenal because of its powerful global social marketing appeal. The energy drink currently has more than 92 million social media followers fueled by a super progressive concert-style global experiential marketing campaign called The Bang Revolution World Tour.
