PLANO, Texas Stores with shelves already crowded with soft drinks will soon have to make room for another member of the energy-drink kingdom, this one from Dr Pepper Snapple Group, which announced the new drink Tuesday.
Venom, available in regular Black Mamba and low-carbohydrate and low-calorie Mojave Rattler, will be available in 16.9-ounce aluminum bottles for around $2.29. It will include ingredients common to energy drinks such as caffeine, guarana, taurine, l-carnitine and ginseng.
Dr Pepper Snapple Group markets beverages throughout North America. In addition to Dr Pepper and Snapple, its brands include 7Up, A&W, RC Cola, Yoo-Hoo, Canada Dry and Schweppes.
