Why you should care about Recode’s Energy Drink
Recode is reporting that the world’s most popular energy drink is being sold on eBay under the domain “dteenergy”, but a disclaimer on the website states that the item is not a registered trademark of Coke.
It has been sold on the eBay seller site for $8,900, but the seller has not yet offered a price for the item.
Recode reported that the sale is being done under the eBay auction house, and that the seller does not offer a listing of the item’s product information.
The item appears to be a small bottle of Coca-Cola Energy Drink, with the listing description saying that it’s made with “the latest energy drink technology.”
Recoding the Energy Drink from the seller’s descriptionRecode reports that the energy drink has been produced by the Coca-Cola Company.
“The bottle is made from carbonated water that has been extracted from a combination of recycled plastic bottles, recycled glass bottles and recycled paper,” the seller stated on the auction site.
“This carbonated solution was then filtered through a proprietary filter system to remove all trace of CO2 from the water.”
Recode’s source has not confirmed whether the item was actually made by Coke or if it was just a recycled bottle.
On the eBay listing, the item says that it contains no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives, and is 100% organic and made in small batches.
However, the seller says that the product is “made with the latest energy drinks technology.”
The seller’s eBay listing indicates that the buyer can “pay with bitcoin” if the seller doesn’t ship the item within 30 days of the end of the auction.
We reached out to Coke to confirm whether the energy drinks item was a legitimate item and will update this story if we receive a response.
