Favorite Energy Drinks

I love Energy Drinks and have tried a good chunk of those available but what do you guys (If any) Enjoy Drinking?

My favorite is probably the AMP or regular Monster.


*Tried to add a poll so we'll see if it works.
-Ok, Can I get a Mod to help me put in a Poll, Sorry.

Amp is okay. Most taste like ass. I generally only use them as a mixer with booze.

Jones Soda (the gourmet soda makers) makes the best tasting. Cosco used to sell a case (24 cans) for $16.

Sparks. With the alcohol added, it gives a nice long-lasting alertness boost without feeling "edgy."

It's funny. Me and a co-worker had a random conversation about our favorite energy drinks a few nights ago. Some of my favorites consist of:

Red Bull - the first time I tried it, I thought it was disgusting, but something about it made me keep trying it and over time I got accustomed to the taste and is my favorite to this day

Mountain Dew AMP - probably the best-tasting energy drink out there. A Big Rig is perfect for a long night at work

Full Throttle (regular and Blue Demon) - the regular kind tastes a bit like Gummy Bears (?) and Blue Demon is extremely sweet, and if tastes a bit like biting into a fresh green apple

Sobe Adrenaline Rush - this is my current favorite, tasting a bit like pineapple.


The ones I say away from:

Monster (any kind)

I just tried assault today and it was really good but had a horrible after taste. It kind of went away half-way through but overall it was pretty good.

I keep a huge cupboard top of all the energy drinks Ive tried.

I haven't tried that one, but the regular Rockstar Juiced gives me the shits in no time. Not quite sure why, but it sure ain't fun.

Nice, personally I think the Assault has an almost cola-like taste. I also don't notice any aftertaste, but I tend to drink it in less than 3 minutes so maybe that's why.

As an aside, am I alone in forseeing a day when the FDA or some other regulatory body starts to put warnings on energy drinks and/or regulating what's in them? As it is right now it's sort of a free-for-all.

Drink? Anything you don't inject straight into the blood stream is just sugar water.

I haven't tried anything except Red Bull and that was only with Jager. I just get the odd feeling that 6 months from now the Surgeon General will issue some hazerdous to my health warning about energy drinks. Something about them seems so wrong....
