    Which do you think is better??
    Red Bull is the original..tastes a bit better in my opinion..
    Monster has more sugar but you get double the product for the same $..
    Also there are many flavours..ripper ,low carb , rehab etc..
    Coca cola owns Monster an evil corporate monstericon_twisted.gif
    I usually get Monster because you get more bang for buck but 13 teaspoons of sugar is a little worrying.
    Coca cola did the same thing to gatorade.
    Their powerade drink also has more sugar...

    I use to drink Red Bull and preferred it over Monster, or Rockstar.

    I no longer drink energy drinks.

    Drink coffee or tea if you need a boost before working out.

    a cup of coffee per serving has much more caffeine than these drinks.

    if mother caffeine not the drug of choice than a bowel of pasta might work too

    I'll stick with Red Bull. After all, their sporting events are so much cooler anyway. icon_biggrin.gif

    Red Bull Zero and Red Bull Red Edition are my current faves. The only Monster drinks I like are the coffee drinks. Seriously good stuff. Iced coffee with a kick. Wish they came in smaller cans though. The regular tall cans are a bit much sometimes. icon_neutral.gif

    I prefer Ritalin. It's convenient, compact, effective, and efficient.

    Better living through pharmacy.

    Only $5.49 for 40 grams, conveniently packaged in 200mg capsules. That's roughly the equivalent of two cups of coffee or three espressos. icon_twisted.gif

    You can also get 100 mg caffeine tablets. The 200 mg ones make my ears ring.

    Sometimes while working the red-eye , i need a boost . I make myself a nice strong cup of coffee in the galley , and it boost me up till morning . I know it would be a lot easier and faster to drink a Red-bull or Monster , but i rather drink something that comes directly from our earth soil ...icon_smile.gif

    those energy drinks are garbage bro. Don't drink 'em unless theres alcohol in it. . .

    nothing but sugar and caffeine.
    If u need a boost do coffee or get ur hands on some adderall.
