Leading Brands, Inc. (NASDAQ: LBIX), Canada's largest independent, fully integrated food and beverage brand management company, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive license agreement with Energy Brands, Inc. granting the royalty-free right to use the "Go-Go" trademark in connection with the sale, distribution and marketing of Go-Go(TM) Sexy Energy drink.

Energy Brands' Go-Go(TM) is the market leader in establishing the herbal energy drink category in the US. Go-Go(TM) is a refreshingly light, low calorie, lightly carbonated energy drink. It provides a noticeable feeling of increased energy and alertness through a secret formula that combines a synergistic combination of herbs, including Siberian ginseng, damiana, yerba mate, muira puma, astragalus, gingko biloba and guarana. Go-Go(TM) Sexy Energy has a delicious passionfruit flavour.

Go-Go(TM) Sexy Energy is targeted at the techno-generation, 15-25 year old market who are on the go. It comes in trim, 8.4 ounce cans featuring a provocative "Japanimated" girl.

The licensing agreement gives Leading Brands the first right of refusal to manufacture and package any current or future Go-Go(TM) products in Canada.

J. Darius Bikoff, President of New York City based Energy Brands, said: "The Go-Go(TM) Sexy Energy drink is expected to appeal to a wide audience, ranging from students who need to stay awake and office workers looking for a coffee substitute, to anyone wanting to add a kick to their sex life! We believe that the marketing support provided by our Go-Go girls for product sampling and our interactive web-site greatly enhances product exposure.

In announcing the contract, Ralph McRae, Leading Brands' Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We're excited to offer such a terrific product line of New Age beverages. In Europe, energy drinks are the latest trend, accounting for 4% of the adult soft drink market with sales of more than $1 Billion. We expect Go-Go(TM) sales to significantly contribute to our revenues and bottom line."
