What`s Your Favorite Energy Drink?

Wed Aug 15, 2007 6:25 pm

Mine was for a long time: Spiked Silver. It had a fruity taste, because it had some cranberry-juice in it. It's not available anymore in Germany. Is it still available in the UK?

Now my fav is: Dark Dog, but it's also hard to get in Germany.

Most time I drink Red Bull, because you can get it nearly everywhere.

I hate energy drinks at all... They usually taste like S*** Big grin

I use coke to stay awake on my long haul flights or drink just water, which usually is enough for me...

Red bull was my companion during my B752SF Mx training.I had to study 9 hrs a day for 60 days & a can/day helped stay awake at nights.
Nowadays its "Energee"

I still don't understand why these are called energy drink? red bull, etc... I mean when u feel sleepy and tired, no matter what type of beverages you drink, you will still feel tired and sleepy. Those drinks just to refresh you up for a minute or so.

1. Coffee
2. Water

I am starting to believe that "energy" drink consumption is an addictive sort of behaviour. Maybe I am not using 'addictive' properly for the medically trained among you but I think it is similar to caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, marijuana, adrenalin and some other things in the way its users employ it.

Oh, they do taste like crap.
Not my drug, I guess.

You're doing ok! Last time there - 5 weeks ago, the lady and I, with my money being bet, won $4000 in 40 minutes of blackjack at Wynns. had 2 straight 6 deck shoes where we did not lose a hand. Lost two hands to start the 3rd shoe and we left. Hoping for more next time - I have very good luck in Vegas.

If you go downtown, you can get them for a bar set up outside of Mermaids. I swung by there after a few of us went for a little entertainment a few doors down, and grabbed a jagerbomb (Jagermeister and Red Bull). Tried to get BMIFlyer to do a shot with me, but he wouldn't.


When it comes to energy drinks, I do drink them a few times a week. Usually a Rooster Booster Lite (Can only get them at QuikTrip stores), mainly because it's cheap (99 cents for a can that the size of a regular Red Bull at half the price). Monster has a new coffee based energy drink product line that's not too bad either.

Not surprising, given that coffee is full of antioxidants, so many that it is the number one source of antioxidants in the average American diet. Also, studies have shown that moderate caffeine intake equivalent to 2-5 cups of strong coffee a day is beneficial to adrenal function

Anyway, I am a bigger fan of coffee, iced tea and Diet Coke but do like the occasional energy drink. Redbull tastes like garbage, but I really like Sobe NoFear Sugar Free and even more I like Sobe Sugar Free Adrenaline Rush.

I like to drink beer, but beer is absolutely no "energy drink" for me, I am only drinking it in the evening so it is rather a "cool down drink" for me.

For all Red Bull fans out there - try Rhino's it tastes nearly the same as Red Bull but is much cheaper. It's also from Austria. It kept me awake at nights when I wrote papers for my studies.
