    The only energy drink that (to me) actually tastes good is recharge...only drink it at work = 2 cans per week :)

    how about Solis?
    Fruit juice but it has the added vitamins and guarana and ginseng
    i find it somewhat refreshing more than a "buzz"

    Where can you buy it?


    PS. Feeling a dead today after major lack of sleep all week :(, lets see if 3 200ml cans of Dare's Coffee Shot's With Guarana will do the trick, hehe

    With these energy drinks i couldn't drink more than a bottle, I'd need water to wash it down :)

    I remember the first time I tried the Red Eye stuff... one of my mates loved it and said it tasted like liquid fruit tingle and he was right :shock: That stuff is pretty cheap too (at least in the supermarkets) but I'd probgably rather the taste of V.

    I don't even drink this stuff, like hardly ever. Only for emergencies like cramming for exams :D

    Looks like V and Red Bull are the top competitors for energy drinks :p

    Talking about which ones taste good i bought a Recharge by Sprite today and it actually tastes quite nice and is very refreshing still, keeps me up all day not like Red Bull where it puts you on a high but you go back down later on :(

    I got a special one. No carbs, 8 calories, no sugars, no fats :).
    All vitamins baby. And keeps me going for hours, not a brief buzz :)

    It's fantastic.

    nope.
    its actually a full legal product, nothing underhanded about it.

    Just due to the company's marketing legalities, I'm not actually allowed to publicly market it.. Only in one on one transactions unforunately. Such is the draw back of being a small sized business. Oh well :)

    i think you will find water contains 0 energy, or have you got some kind of nuclear fusion going on in your body, extracting Deuterium and Tritium from the water..

    Alright, I was able to find a pic of this drink :Paranoid:

    You can get this stuff from Thailand, or some Asian supermarkets in Australia ;)

    But what is it?, well it is red bull.....but it isn’t "fizzy" it is sweet, syrupy and has the power of a case of red bull distilled down into one small bottle.

    If you manage to get a hold of this stuff.....be careful... :wired:

    ....if this has already been posed in this thred, deal with it :lol:
