The idea was very popular. People were lining up at the chosen supermarkets to taste the new beverage, lining up to use the computer to enter a name. Some copied the URL so they could post from home if they couldn’t wait at the super-market or hadn’t selected the right name.
This was ‘Stage One’, the tasting and chances to name the new drink which would go on for two months. Then, they would move to Stage Two, that is, the top fifty or twenty five names would be listed and the people would be invited to vote online, or in store for the name their liked best.
Some thought that the free tastes should continue during that time so that people would have the taste fresh in their mouths when they made their choice.
