I have never had them, but my DH drinks them regularly. He said some of them taste bad, but he likes the pomegranate one. He said that 5 Hr Energy gives him more FOCUSED energy rather than the NERVOUS energy that seems to come with a cup of coffee. He drinks coffee too, if he just wants to wake up, but if he wants energy AND needs to concentrate on something he prefers the energy drink. The ones he drinks have some B vitamins (B6 and B12), but he's not sure if there are risks with long term exposure to extra vitamins or other ingredients or not. He doesn't drink them every day or anything. He also said that they don't have the same kind of crash that caffeine usually has.
