I tried a few of them while working over night a few years back and I just don't like the taste of them. Honestly though I know plenty of people who mix them with alcohol and drink them like that for some reason.lol  ;D

I occasionally have an energy drink, usually diet red bull or a sugar free / low carb version of some other brand. It's usually after I was out late singing karaoke and I have to function at work the next day (and since I'm usually out on Thursdays, I only have to suffer through Friday, then can crash over the weekend).

I've heard so many false rumors about energy drinks, however; I wonder what it is that people dislike about energy drink that make them start / spread these weird ideas...

1) "There's so much sugar / carbs in energy drinks" In truth, there are actually energy drinks that can still provide energy and still remain sugar free / low carbs.

2) "There's so much caffeine in energy drinks" Although energy drinks do have more caffeine per 8oz serving than soda pops, coffee still has the most caffeine per serving out of any drink. Moreover, caffeine is almost always described in 8oz servings, yet people will drink 12oz cans or 20oz bottles of pop in one sitting, and not realize that they're actually consuming 1.5-2.5 times the caffeine as what's listed. Also energy drinks usually come in small cans about 8oz in size. So a small can of Red Bull has about 76mg of caffeine whereas Mt Dew has 54mg per 8oz serving. So a 12oz can of  Mt Dew actually has 81mg of caffeine which is more than the Red Bull. And coffee can range upwards of 100mg per 8oz serving, depending on how it's prepared (eg a generic, brewed coffee can range 95mg-200mg per 8oz).

But enough serious stuff... "I had a couple Red Bulls. Did you ever have a Red Bull? I never had a Red Bull before, but I had a Red Bull last night and I really like Red Bulls..." Hilarious scene from Yes Man : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h6iCn0301M

I get all the caffeine I need from black coffee and Diet Coke.  Any more than that and my heart could race at Daytona.  :)

I'm afraid to try them, my heart gets all out of wack with a couple cups of coffee.

Every once in a while I will have a sugar free redbull!  I would probably drink them more but they are so expensive!

I don't drink energy drinks. I don't think they taste good. My husband drinks them all the time though.

I've only drank one energy drink in my life and that was a Rockstar, which the company was handling out as a sample at an event. This tasted basically like a soda and I didn't feel much different either.

I don't like them at all. They are really bad for you between the sugar and caffeine and all the chemicals in them. I like coffee and tea for a natural boost of energy. Chocolate has caffeine and sugar and good chocolate is natural and can be good for you so there are better alternatives
