    so for a while I had been a red bull fiend. then just recently I got hooked on monster (the green flavor) because they sell it at work. I like it better because it just tastes that much sweeter. I was at home depot the other day for HOURS and needed something to drink, so I tried full throttle, which they had in a cooler. it was absolutely foul, tasting like the bastard offspring of red bull and mountain dew. this just got me thinking, what else are some of the better drinks out there?

    I stay away from the nasty super acidic ultra citrus crap that 90% of energy drinks are.

    Java Monster, Irish flavor. There's 6 or 7 other flavors too, but Irish and big black are the 2 I grab. They're tasty, and I don't feel like I need to down a bottle of pepto bismol or eat a handful of prilosec once I'm done, and overall my stomach gets along a lot better with other foods after eliminating the super acidic energy drink in the morning routine.

    On the rare occasion I drink an energy drink, I really like either MD Amp (my favorite) or black label fury (the regular kind)...but all energy drinks are LOADED with sugar and caffeine...I try to drink only water because it converts food to energy very efficiently...

    It depends what I'm in the mood for.I've been on a Full Throttle Blue Demon kick lately. NOS is fun too, but I'm a car fanatic, so it's the novelty of it. I love the plastic bottles that look like Nitrous tanks.

    Full Throttle, but I don't drink many others anyway. I absolutely hate anything too sweet, though.

    None, I don;t drink any of them. I remember the ones tha tactually had names like "Energy" and such. Mixing the pink and green one was great.

    I like Whoop Ass. Just for the name. It's made by Jones. Doesn't taste bad either.

    I'll have to try this 'Monster' next time I'm stateside.
    So far I am favouring Red Bull. (Mixed with Vodka of course ;)  )

    Coke's Vault(although canceled in Canada) was my fav.
    Monster, MD AMP, FT, Stoked Orange and NOS are my faves.

    Monster is the best. I usually drink the blue one, but the M-80 and Assault ones are pretty good too.

    Full Throttle for me, though I've been weined off of it. Red Bull lately, but I've also been drinking a lot too, so that may be one reason.

    The only thing Red Bull is good for is Jager Bombs.

    I'll stick to a coke for a caffine kick thanks.
