Boo Bee Juice Drink
image Could the makers of Boo Bee Juice Drink really not realize the double meaning of the product's name? Or do they realize perfectly well and are going for the titillation/subliminal advertising thing? I'm sure even kids would pick up on what the name means, especially when they hear the adults giggling behind their backs. I suspect it all could be another Haribo-Fruit-Chews-type marketing ploy.

It seems real enough. I picked through the site & didn't see any glaringly obvious signs of a hoax company. I know I've seen similar drinks like that in the US. They're not call Boo Bee, but they have the straw already on it. So the design is not new & I wasn't sure if the description of it was trying to imply that it was or not...

I think that name and bottle design should be reserved for a milk drink, not a juice drink.

I bought Boo Bee today. Doesn't taste that great, but it did get a few odd looks when I told my girlfriend I was sucking on a tropical Boo Bee.
