We partnered up with Renegade Energy Group to offer $0.50 vending machines for Crackheads2 and Jitterbeans. The program is a little over a month old and we have almost 500 machines already sold! People love the product and the large profit margin is a great way to get your fix and make some money at the same time!

New sponsorships

We are proud to have been sponsoring numerous LAN events and gaming systems around the country the past year with Crackheads and Crackheads2, some are:

and we are excited to have recently sponsored

Rhett Bobzien

an exceptional athlete and power lifter than competes in the Highland Games:

He is the highest ranking amateur in his class. We think Jitterbeans™ will help Rhett throw entire trees, launch boulders, and hurl burlap sacks of straw higher than anyone else in 2009!

Do you have anything that you love to do and want to feel the warm glow of being sponsored? Perhaps you have a hidden talent that allows you to draw Picassos with your tongue, or perform high level mathematical calculations in your mind? Maybe you have telepathy, or know Oprah, or can kickflip back lip a double kink, or do a ho-ho. Drop us a line, we would like to get you some candy.

Osmanium happenings

We are moving to a larger facility and are happy to report that we have added some new sales positions, warehousing, and marketing people. We are also working on new product development, an education section for the website, and trying to not eat all of our products before it ships out. We also choose a new logo for Osmanium:

This comes from Bill Barder, an old animator for the Tiny Toons cartoon show

Osmanium Logo

That is all for now, thank you for you enjoy our products! Please let us know if you have any comments, questions, concerns, or ideas.
