Bomba drink, bomb-like bottle

Bomba Energy drinks hit the United States in a grenade-shaped 8.4-oz glass bottle topped with a steel cap and ring closure. When the ring is pulled, the cap lifts open. The exclusive importer, Energy Beverage Company of Long Island City, NY, launched the Bomba Energia Getränkevertriebs GmbH product in this country in May.
