    You can get Nitro at certain bigger IGA's where I am, its nothing special.

    Can you even get Bacchus-D in australia? If you can i'm pretty sure it isn't allowed.

    I've found all drinks just use the maximum legal caffeine amount, often the same taurine too.

    250ml = 80mg Caffeine
    500ml = 160mg Caffeine

    And everything in between is the same ratio.

    It often annoys me when people say "V/Redbull is better then XXX it has more caffeine!" as I know most energy drinks use the legal limits.

    My local IGA has a huge energy drink selection, just recently had Rockstar Guava and loved it :)

    Got a 4 pack of this new drink Synergy yesterday. Australian made and owned and the drink is a 300ml can and sugarfree. Has the usual amount of caffeine and taurine and also has a herb called brahmi. The 4 pack was 7.99 so it is decently priced compared to others. I liked the taste too, quite crisp, slight apple flavour mixed with the usual lollies flavour.

    Redline is awesome but not available in Australia for this very reason.
    With 400mg of caffiene in 240mls it's five times the legal dosage.

    I wish the government would stop being such nancys and let people decide their own welfare.

    EDIT: The new Rockstar Pomegranite Energy Water is quite tasty (Citrus is a bit blah).

    I was never a fan of energy drinks, they're such a con. But I've become hooked on the taste :Paranoid: of Mother recently. It's becoming dangerous to go and do the groceries if I've had a workout that day because I'll get one for its refreshing nature :p

    Monster Low-Carb... pretty much the only 'diet' energy drink that tastes decent.

    I used to love V black but ever since discovering Monster I will never look back :p

    I love the sweetness of the drink, which imho makes it easier to drink :thumbup:

    Just had a coles zu (purple flavour).
    Tastes OK and a bargain i think at $5.50ish for a 4 pack. Very drinkable, actually enjoyed drinking it.
    I dont like the taste of any other energy drink except for redbull but its just to expensive. Havent tried any of the ones that come exclusively in the massive cans, 500ml = to much for me(except for mother, which ill pick up from the servo before i go out if im tired, which I dont really like the taste of)

    Tasted exactly like Mother to me, but with a slightly "floral" twist in the flavour (or maybe it was just the artwork on the can making me think that). Would not buy again.
