Reports: Kraft Foods to enter energy drinks market

NORTHFIELD, Ill. — Kraft reportedly is gearing up to roll out a caffeinated version of its liquid water enhancer brand MiO, according to published reports.

The regular-sized bottle of caffeine-fueled MiO is expected to tout 18 servings. When a half-teaspoon of MiO Energy is mixed with 8 oz. of water, it creates a beverage that contains 60-mg of caffeine — about the same as one 6-oz. cup of coffee. The product will be marketed to those ages 18 years and older and is set to launch next month, according to the Financial Times.

MiO was launched in February and marked Kraft Foods' largest beverage brand introduction in 10 years.
