Are any of your items made in the United States?

Yes. Our drinks and lip balms are made in the US.

 

I have a nut, soy, gluten, ______ allergy, can I consume your products?

We have an array of products, please contact Customer Service so we may address the ingredients of your specific product. You may find the ingredients on the back or bottom of the tin/package and also on our website at its product page.

 

Are your energy drinks safe for children?

No. Boston America Corp. recommends that children and pre-teens should avoid consuming energy drinks due to the high content of caffeine, sugar, B-vitamins and other supplemental herbs such as guarana and taurine which may be harmful to a growing child. We also caution individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, sugar and energy supplements.

 

Do you have non-caffeinated drinks?

Yes. Our Hello Kitty Fizzy Pop and Rainbow Dash Cherry Splash do not contain caffeine.

 

Do your products expire?

Our gummy candies, energy and fizzy drinks have an 18-month shelf life. Tinned candies have a 5-year shelf life. The lip balms do not have an expiration date.

 

How can I tell the expiration date on a product?

Our candies have a code printed on the back or the edge of the tin which indicates the date it was produced. It should be a 4 or 5-digit code. The first two numbers (or first number) indicates the year. The last three numbers indicate the day of the year (1 – 365).

As an example, a candy that has a code of 11070 would indicate that this was made on the 70th day of the year (March 11th) in 2011. The Duff energy drinks have a similar code printed on the bottom of the can (YYDDD) and they have an 18-month shelf life. All of the other Boston America drinks have a different code on the bottom of the can.

An example:  C1124BA-G:C stands for March (3rd letter of the alphabet and 3rd month)11 stands for 201124 stands for the 24th day of the month and BA is Boston AmericaG is the color of the drink (Green/melon, Red/cherry, Blue/raspberry, Yellow/citrus, or Pink/bubblegum)
In this example, the drink flavor is melon flavored and it was produced on March 24, 2011.
