How many of you go through about 3 to 4 cans of Monster a day?
I've been noticing this energy drink trend for a while, and it's kind of annoying.

Some people really don't realize how much harm they can cause.
And really... do they seriously taste that good? So much nasty, bitter taurine, ginseng, and nasty tasting addatives in it. Why not buy Mountain Dew instead? It has better flavor, and you won't have a stroke while drinking 10 cans a day.

It's not just energy drinks I dislike, it's soda in general.
The carbonated fizz is really uncomfortable. It burns my throat, and when I burp, it tends to burn my nasal cavity as well. The taste isn't so wonderful either. There's a lot of high fructose corn syrup, which leaves a nasty loogie in the back of your throat that tastes like soda. Is it REALLY quenching to have that on a hot Summer day? The taste makes me feel like I'm drinking garbage water. all of those chemicals mixed together doesn't ease my mind.

To be honest, I'm wondering how many people feel similar. I'm sure it's not that many, and I'm sure that most of you would disagree, because so many people grew up on soda. I know I did, but now I hate it.

If you ask me what I like to drink, I'll tell you it's water. Bland as it may be, I love it. It makes me feel healthier, which I do care about. Feeling healthy is a great feeling. Better than being fat, greasy skinned, and growing bitties (man tits).

What do you all think?

By the way, if anything, my favorite soda at the movies or fast-food place is root beer, preferably Barq's

I don't really drink energy drinks, I hate the taste.

I love mountain dew though, but I'm British, so it's really hard to find at a reasonable price.

That's interesting. I take it Mountain Dew is rather expensive over there.

Here's a good fact I just read, high fructose corn syrup, which is the ingedient in almost everything sweet, including soda, has mercury in it, which is one of the most dangereous elements there is, they don't even allow it to be thermometers anymore.
#15
+1 to everything man. I hate the way it makes my teeth feel too, I find they get real rough or gritty feeling in my mouth. Not a fan of the soda. Big fan of beer tho!

edit: I only drink pop when its mixed with someting....rum,brandy etc.



Cheers!



Go Leafs Go!!

Suck it up.

Soda kicks ass and if it "burns your throat" I would love to watch you down a shot of vodka.

I drink soda everyday.

It's good for you.

Personally, i'd buy her a can of Coke, then as she's drinking it say to her "Whats better than Coca Cola?" She'll go "What?" and you shout "CREAM SODA!" And ejaculate in her can.

It's all right for parties, and if I'm relaxing with a jay or a bowl of some nice bud.
Beer pong cannot be played without beer

OTher than that, I tend not to drink it at all unless I'm relaxing with a jay.

I can't stand energy drinks, they taste like piss to me.

The only sodas I like are Sunkist and Welch's grape, or any other kind of orange or grape soda. Coca cola, pepsi, all that just tastes nasty to me.
I usually drink juice or water. They taste much much better and are a lot healthier.

yeh man, ur so right. u are thinking exactly wat im thinking. Even the root beer part. i only like root beer and Pibb™. Mosnters are gay. And redbulls.. arent that bad. I love water too
#32
I like pop, and hate energy drinks. =\

And I like clear pop, since if it goes flat, it doesn't quite taste like ass. However, root beer is the bees ****in' knees.

Either way, I'm trying to phase out sugary drinks from my diet to a reasonable amount. Not having a terribly easy time of it, since there's always stuff in the house, but I'll get there.

I don't care if they're bad for you, that's just another point to my arguement.

I just can't stand to see loads of people completely shaken and jittery, telling me ALL of the time how much they love Monster. It's quite crack addict-esque in my opinion.

Yeah, there are very few places that stock it (i.e. 1 in my town, a market stall that sells them for £1.20 ($2) a can) but I've found a Chinese supermarket in a city not too far from me that sells it for £0.65 ($1). It's still more expensive than pepsi or coke

2 USD for a can? That's rather outrageous. It's about 1.75 in a lot of vending machines. That's why, if I ever buy soda (I will buy a drink from the machine at Walmart from time to time, sure) I buy generic soda.
It cost 25-50 cents for a can of Sams Club soda from the machine.
