They make me incredibly hyper so I tend to avoid them -- unless I'm falling asleep in class ._.
But I love them D:

I <3 Powerade. Though that's not really an energy drink as such as it's not caffine. But still.

My favorite energy drink is Demon.

Most aren't suitable for vegetarians :/ They have 'taurine' in, which is a bile from animals...sooo. NO. :p

If they were suitable...I would probably have a few when I was at a party or something. When I did have one though, it kept waking me up every 2 hours xD

**OHHH I have powerade sometimes!! Just not things like Red Bull etc

I really don't drink them. The very unusual Gatorade/Powerade here and there.

Mostly water, tea, soda, and coffee for me.

02-09-11, 23:54
I stay away from them. I don't react well to energy drinks or caffeine. They make me feel jittery.

Although I've never had problems with most soft drinks/powerade.

It's kinda disgusting what they put in things :/ There's gross things in pretty much everything. *nods* Pig blood, bone, crushed insects, entrails. Cha.

Aha.

But it doesn't say what it is in brackets or whatever like geletine does sometimes. They're so sneaky...hiding animal products in things.

Whenever I brush my teeth I feel sick knowing there's piggy byproducts in :(

I drink one in a week.

My math teacher told us that once she teached a boy who drank 8 bottles per day and when he tried to make it 2 per day, he got headaches and stomach pains etc. so he went back to 8 per day. He really tried. I actually now this boy.

OMG you'll have to tell me them all :S All I know is geletine, carmines and taurine.

WHAT! NOO! My lovely sensodyne is evil? Ugh I did that kinda thing once. I licked the lid of a muller rice raspberry one, and then read the ingredients. *SICKKKKK* Poor squished insects :( :( I feel so sorry for them. And Crusha milkshake stuff. That has it in.

C'mon haylage. Let's campaign!

Can't stand Red Bull, the drink or the company. Tastes like medicine and they are just a huge marketing firm.

I don't like them, they smell awful. I can only imagine what they would taste like, not ever gonna try!

I'm in love with tea. Everything about tea is so intriguing. The history, flavor, even the method of brewing. I fell in love with tea when I was so young, and I'll never cheat on him with another drink.

Other drinks like red bull, monster, and other caffeine pumped drinks disgust me it's like drinking toxic waste into your body. (IMO) I got curious and looked at the ingredients in the drinks and there are ingredients I didn't even know existed..

I drink water and tea. Period

I had tried a Red Bull once...decided I like cough medicine better (ick). I don't like to rely on anything like that for energy....only tea and water for me.

03-09-11, 06:28
I've had them occasionally (like when we're doing overnights at work), but every time I have one, I just wonder what the hell I was thinking. I do get that initial burst of energy, but it lasts about an hour at most, and then I just feel exhausted but artificially awake. It's a horrible feeling.

So, aside from extreme cases, I don't touch them at all.

A fellow diabetic :hug:

Never had an energy drink. They all smell horrid.

Does Lucazade count? I drink that if my blood sugar is too low, the orange kind.

Im what my doctor called "borderline diabetic", which means I have diabetes, but its not at a stage that I need treatment, as long as I watch my sugar intake - so, no energy drinks for me, I have to go for low-sugar stuff like Fruit Shoots.

Dustie
04-09-11, 15:08
Rarely drink them, I try to avoid them. Never really felt too much of a 'kick' after any of these, I feel coffee works better when it comes to keeping you alive. Majority of soft drinks are actually just sweetened water, which unfortunately is going to keep turning more and more people into diabetics. There's way too much sugar in processed foods already to be voluntarily ingesting even more of it.

I never felt like it had any impact on me.I used to drank once-twice a week but I havent drunk any for like2-3 years now. I migzht try out since now I acutally have to get up early. I tried coffee, but it's like I'm resistant to coffein.

I hate all of them...
Two years ago I did take a couple of sips during a film marathon in the theatre which lasted 12 hours and I was already 15 hous awake...
And those couple of sips were enough to get me 100% awake again, but it tasted godawfull:o

I like them in moderation. I barely buy them though.

I sometimes have Kx (Kick) from Tesco's since it is pretty much the cheapest way for a sugar/energy fix. :p

Otherwise, only in this form. :cln:

Red bull has bull sperm in it, seriously look at the ingredients and you'll find Taurine - which is bull sperm.

Okay not bull sperm but ...

Taurine, or 2-aminoethanesulfonic acid, is an organic acid. It is a major constituent of bile and can be found in the large intestine and in the tissues of many animals, including humans.

Can you say yuck?

Did you not read what I posted, they put Taurine in Red Bull and most energy drinks, which is bile, usually from animals.

toxicraider
05-09-11, 10:54
I did read it; they add a synthetic chemical, that happens to also be found in bile.
I'm not really getting the problem. xD

Yeah that's right :tmb: Sometimes it's sourced synthetically and sometimes it's from animal bile. The majority of it is synthetic, however.
