If it's the same stuff they are hawking at Costco pretty much every time I go, as was mentioned earlier in the post it was there, it's pretty much all peach juice...I was showing my wife and laughing at it last weekend. No Acai in it period.

Franchise, pyramid, subscription fees...it's all a scam.

You seem to be awfully involved with the manufacturers party line...

Doesn't matter what the front says, I look at the ingredient list on the back that is required to list what's in it. Actually required by the % amount in the product...it's first ingredient was peach juice, no Acai listed in it. If anyone wants to take a look at it, go to Costco and look it up on the government mandated list and not the marketing crap...I was looking at it because I want to actually see what Acai tastes like some day.

I would take a pict but they frown on that in Costco, and I'm not going to spend money on something that lies to you about what is in it. Put what you want into your body though, but if some one asks about it and I have seen it...I'll tell them what I have seen.

Got to love when the Consumerist covers this stuff as a scam, you know it's good to the last drop.

I think the defination of an actual pyramid scheme is different. Their marketing method is just like Mary Kay, and a zillion other companies out there.

There are some foods out there that are considered superfoods. Acai is one of them. My issue with MonaVie is that it has sodium benzoate, a preservative, in it and if you truly want to be healthy you should avoid that kind of stuff. I am sure that it has some health benefits but is it worth the cost of $40. You only drink a shot glass full of it twice a day. My FIL became a distributer of it last year and really bought into it. He even made a comment that theoretically he could just stop buying fruits and veggies, that he gets all the vitamins and minerals he needs from the monavie. I commented that there is no way in a million years you are going to convince me that drinking two shot glasses of a juice a day can ever replace eating a whole food diet consisting of lots of fresh fruits and veggies. I haven't asked him about it but I don't think he is selling it anymore.

Like I said already, I am sure there are SOME good benefits to it but the majority is all about marketing.
