Every now and then, a rather bizarre product slips into the world of technology related products. An announcement earlier has revealed a perfect example of this: the company VitaminWater, known for making, well... vitamin water, will soon be manufacturing a 'Connect' flavored drink, "made by fans, for fans on Facebook."
VitaminWater recently held a competition on Facebook in which fans could design their own flavor of drink to be manufactured, packing references to the social networking site on the bottle. According to TechCrunch, the label makes numerous references to friend requests, and other features of the site. VitaminWater's announcement read as follows:
