Yesterday evening I drove back home from a friend, on the way I stopped at a gas station in Dortmund where I bought two cans of Red Bull, when I paid it the shop assistant said something like: "You really want to drink two cans of this horrible stuff?". Today I got a call from my father, he complained that I left the two empty cans in his car, he said something like: "The whole car smells like the stuff, the smell is already disgusting, I will not know how it tastes".

Everyone seems to hate Red Bull. Why? I really like it, the taste is great and it is the perfect drink for Sunday evening when I am feeling tired after a party weekend.

What about you? Do you like Red Bull?

I like it but I agree that it smells funny. The smell and flavour remind me of liquified fruit gello.

Works even better on nights out with a shot or two of Vodka!  bigthumbsup

I used to drink it quite a lot, with vodka added of course. I don't mind the taste, however after a few I find it does give me gut-rot. I now generally stay away from it!

My description of the taste is a "carbonated pixie stick."

I'm not a particular fan of it. Have probably had under 20 cans of it in my lifetime.

I also wouldn't ever drink it with alcohol (when I used to drink). Dunno if it actually could be a problem, but I never wanted to mix such a stimulant with such a depressant.

I like it, I just spent a weekend in France with school. Itr saved my life:

Set off 5pm on Friday night. Caught the 9.00 Pride Of Hull P&O ferry to Rotterdam. Slept on Ferry

Arrived in Rotterdam at 0800 Saturday Morning.

Drove to Lille in France, arrived at 1100

Spent the day in Lille and all of Sunday until 1200, then set off to Rotterdam and caught the 9.00 ferry back last night. I am knackered. I also broke my wrist !!!

I used to drink Vodka and Red Bulls but i found that the hangovers where awful and your heart felt shite the next day.

Something to do with the Vodka slowing it down and the Red Bull speeding it up.

I'll buy it if i really need to stay awake but i wouldn't drink t for refreshment alone.

3 for $5.00 and a pretty good deal at Costco. Very good stuff!

I work graveyards, and halfway through the shift, I drink one. I then find myself bouncing off the walls, and having a blast of energy. Then when the shift ends, I am ready to crash.

It's a cross between urine (as I'd imagine it to taste) and a fluoride treatment at the dentist. Pretty vulgar stuff to be honest...especially when you mix it with Jaegermeister. That's just ignunt.

I usually wont touch the stuff, but it does work wonders on late night longhaul drives. Every thanksgiving I make the 12.5 hour drive from the ATL area to see the family close to FNT. Usually the drive begins when work ends around 4:30pm. I find that Red Bull really keeps me up through Ohio and Michigan during the early hours of the morning.

I personally can't stand the swill from Corona (Monster) and think Red Bull tastes commensurate to rotten bubble gum. I am, however, a big fan of Sobe No Fear Sugar Free and Sobe Sugar Free Adrenaline Rush (A-Rush in Canada).

Except that Red Bull had nothing to do with it. Excessive Alcohol consumption and excessive exercise are definate factors in premature death, and those studies basically ignore that

Under 600 mg of caffeine per day is shown to regulate optimal adrenal function and is perfectly healthy, if not more healthy than not, in healthy individuals. The other major energy factors in Red Bull, B vitamins and Taurine, are nutrients that are essential for the body and aid in better health and performance.
