Everywhere I go people are drinking red bull, monstar, rock star, blah blah blah, and I just dont get it. I've tried them and I dont like the taste at all, its kinda like extra sugary juice/koolaid. And I find it ruins a good drink when you decide to mix. Someone explain to me the whole thing? They seem to be a fad, the popular thing to do.
#4
I drink them because they make me feel good.

I love them. Drink in moderation, or you could die. Seriously. I'd link the article but I don't really want to look.
#7
I don't like them only because I workout and run a lot and it makes you crash when you try to run 3 miles or over.

I don't like them either, and they are bad for you.
But I did taste an amp'd or something like that, that tasted exactly like Grape soda.
And I used to love grape soda. But I don't drink soda anymore either. they are bad for you.

Energy drinks are awful.

Nothing but crap crap and more crap. There is nothing beneficial in any energy drink.

THe only energy drinks I can stand are the cherry and grape Amp. The cherry one;s good, and not waaay overly sweet and sugary, and the grape one is EXACTLY the same as grape soda.
#17

I can't stand them, probably the same reason as everyone else they make you crash. And my job is teaching fencing. So I can't crash. They Taste nasty too, and i don't get energy from them either.
#20
i can't drink the stuff. I get hyper off more than a cup of cofee. I don't understand how people can guzzle that stuff.
#21
im not big on the energy drinks either, i think its probably a trend but idk

the only energy drink i like is bawls, it doesnt even really taste like an energy drink at all like the others are kinda bitter but bawls is really sweet like normal soda
#23
I think they're terrible. Its supposedly an energy drink but the carbonation kills me when i try to run.

They are disgusting really

taste like liquid candy and not even a good kind of candy

I also know someone who used to be addicted to them

pretty crazy really :z

The stuff tastes like absolute ****, and most of the people I see drinking them don't need the ****ing energy anyway. If you want REAL energy, you should eat something high in carbohydrates so the energy lasts longer rather than burning out in an hour or so.

It's a fad because people are addicted to them without even knowing.
Kind of like coffee... it's the caffeine.

funny thing is that most people who drink them don't really do jack except sit on their ass and play xbox.

I love them.

i personally dont drink em that often cuz even though i really do like the taste of em they always jus **** me up when i drink em cuz like i dont even get the "energy really" jus like 10 minutes of feel good and then an hour of ****ty feeling
#34
As much as I hate energy drinks, I tried Steaz (energy drink company) Organic Root Beer or whatever was, and it was AMAZING, best root beer, or soda in general I've ever had.

Still, the Steaz energy drink tastes kinda gross, but it's better than the others I've tried.

Exactly. As if playing counter strike requires much energy. Those people mostly need to consume LESS energy.

I used to drink a monster a day, then got tired of crashing and stuff so I quit. It really wasn't tht hard. I'll still have a Bawls every now and then, they taste cool and i always keep the glass.

I don't drink them. The majority of them taste like ass, and I never feel any effects from them. Then again, I don't feel the effects of coffee until I have like 3-4 cups, so I guess I have a high caffeine tolerance or something. Even then, all that guaraine and taurine or whatever that ****'s called can't be good for you, nor does it energize me.
#38
I agree. If you can't get through the day without an energy drink, you shouldn't be alive.
#40
I like the taste and energy, but every time i drink one (or a coffee, etc) I cant get to sleep, feel like crap, and start throwing up.

I might just be allergic :/
