Few months ago I started consuming energy drinks. At first, I would get a good kick; but now I can't say that. I have tried many different brands and flavors. My favorite is Low-Carb Monster. Do you chug energy drinks to get your day going?
I do on occasion drink a few energy drinks, but the reason I mainly don't is the price. I don't want to pay 2-3 dollars for 20-24 oz can of something when I can turn that into a two liter bottle of pop, or a 32 oz bottle of powerade with still 1-2 dollars left over. Every once in a while, I'll buy a few. I just honestly don't think the caffeine and sugar really affect me, I just like the taste.
Although I much prefer coffee or tea, I have had Red Bulls, 5 Hour Energy, AMP and the like when I needed a serious dose of caffeine to get my course work done. I like when Red Bull when it is chilled properly the best.
Instead of spending your money on that snakeoil, send all your cash to me, and in return I'll cast a magic spell over you that will keep you awake for 40 years. I can do it remotely, we don't need to be in the same place.
