Do you drink energy drinks?

If so, what kind?

I've recently been drinking Monster energy drinks and I swear, it makes such a difference! I drink one a day (most days) and have energy the entire day. I love it, lol. There's isn't all that much caffeine, so it must be the B vitamins and ginseng. I can drink more caffeine from coffee and it doesn't have nearly the same effect.

  • I think I was the queen of energy drinks before they became 'the thing' - starting way back with Josta in 1999. For me, though, it was more or less that I love trying drinks (usually non-alcoholic). Didn't get back into newer energy drink stuff until I was introduced to BAWLS a few years later. Couple 24 count cases later and I finally got around to trying the others. Still like BAWLS but my body is so used to the caffeine/guarana now, I can drink anything and fall asleep 30 minutes later. So now, it's just a 'try it for the flavor' for me. Personally though, DH and I go for the sugar-free Monster with the pretty blue/purple design (I forget it's full name) - it's made with Erythritol and really good. Very few calories, and no HFCS! And I like the taste. We only get them when they're on sale though.

  • Yep! I drink a pink Rockstar drink... they're like bubble gum flavored pop! I, too, notice a huge difference, not just in energy, but my mood too!

  • UGH.. I am totally on a 5 hour energy kick - and although people ( News ) say it doesn't work, I swear, placebo or not - its the only thing that gives me energy - too bad they are crazy expensive

  • I only take an energy drink when I NEED it and I make sure to get the nasty flavored ones so I don't enjoy it.. I would hate to be addicted to those things and get to the point where I feel like I have to have one.. no thanks!

  • I don't HAVE to drink them. I used to drink them years ago daily and stopped one day and was fine. There's actually not that much caffeine in them...no more than I usually drink anyways.

    I also notice a change in my mood, for the better.

    Oh, and maxsmom...I recently found 5 hour energy shots at the dollar store! I don't drink those, but my husband does. I was surprised bc they're usually about 5 dollars at the gas station!
