Fill Up & Power Up: Colorado-Based, Woman-Owned Wingman Smart Energy Launches at 180+ Circle K Convenience Stores Statewide

Functional Beverage Adds Fuel to the Energy Drink Category with its First-to-Market
Immune-Boosting Amino Acids that Benefit Heart, Body, and Mind

Denver, CO (March 16, 2021) – Moonlight Beverage Company, the makers of Wingman Smart Energy, is pleased to announce that its functional energy beverage is now available at all 189 locations of Circle K convenience stores across Colorado, including the Front Range. Wingman Smart Energy is excited to shake up the energy drink category with its innovative ingredients as part of the company's expansion plans for national distribution and growth. With the power of nitric oxide, a molecule that increases blood flow and performance in the muscles, Wingman Smart Energy will fuel up Circle K customers while they conveniently fill up at the store. Circle K will carry two of the company’s five varieties at its stores – Citrus, and Unicorn. Designed for enhancement of heart, body, and mind, Wingman is a proprietary, immune-boosting beverage that is a first-to-market blend of amino acids that elevates a body performance and is made without artificial ingredients and additives.

“We’re excited to launch Wingman Smart Energy at Circle K in Colorado. Everybody
needs a convenient way to power up while on the road, and Wingman provides the
optimum performance people need throughout the day to stay alert, energized,
and hydrated,” says Kristin Schroeder, CEO, and Co-founder, Moonlight Beverage Company.

Goals Get Crushed with Wingman
Wingman Smart Energy bolsters natural nitric oxide levels, an innovative approach to increasing energy and stamina. The discovery of nitric oxide, coined the “Miracle Molecule," led to a Nobel Prize for its vital role in cardiovascular health. Each 12-ounce can of Wingman Smart Energy is power-packed and available in five varieties: Citrus, Cranberry Lime, Tropical Mango, Unicorn, and Very Berry. Wingman Smart Energy is an intentional drink designed for daily use:

  • Immunity: Amino acids boost nitric oxide to support the immune system.
  • Heart: Nitric oxide increases blood flow to muscles, which improves exercise.
  • Body: Kickstart the body into action with natural caffeine and ribose, which powers up energy production on a cellular level.
  • Mind: Cognizin and B vitamins sharpen the mind, memory and motivation to move. A proprietary form of citicoline, Cognizin is a potent brain-health nutrient, clinically tested to support attention and recall, offered by Kyowa Hakko USA, Inc.

“Wingman Smart Energy is the newest product line in our grab-and-go beverage set at Circle K. We’re always looking for unique products for our customers, and Wingman truly delivers on function and taste,” said Chris Marquez, Category Manager, Rocky Mountain Region, Circle K Stores.
