This Poll is for your favorite energy drink...the "Other" option is for those who like what's not on the poll or who don't drink energy drinks altogether. If your option is "other", feel free to list what your poison is in the reply post.

**I know there are literally thousands of differnet flavors and blends of energy drinks, I'm only including the main U.S. types in the poll, otherwise the page would take three minutes to load. My personal favorite isn't even on this list, it's the recently discontinued Cocaine...GOOD Stuff with a great buzz**

I usually drink 4-5 monsters a day. Probably will eventually get a heart attack, but meh.

I did that with diet coke.

I was dropping the mentos in, then BOOM! I had coke all over my face. The mentos still tasted good afterwards.

I think one little song sums up my choice:

Wherever there's a pool there's always a flirt
Wherever there is school, there'll always be homework
Wherever there's a beat, there's always a drum
Wherever there's fun there's always Coca-Cola... yeah!

The stars will always shine, the birds will always sing
As long as there is thirst, there's always the real thing
Coca-cola is always the one
Whenever there is fun, there's always Coca-Cola!

"The Burn", "Cannabis Fortifiant" (Spain, illegal in FR), RedBul (illegal in FR), "Migros Energy Drink" (Swiss, illegal in FR) and "Top Reduc Energy drink" (cheapest enery drink).
But, I prefer drink café (it's cheaper).

My friend from school shown me how to prepare the best energy drink I ever tried. He called it "blood of Akasha".

If you have some health problems with heart or coffeine level - Don't try it!

1. Obtain a small metal kettle divided by filter in the middle. I bought my in Italy, it's used to make sronger coffee with vaporized water under pressure.
2. Prepare a coffee in it
3. Repeat step two until you have a few (2-5) glasses (250ml) of coffee.
4. pour coffee to some long flask and heat it VERY slowly until you have about a glass of thick, dark substance.
5. It's best with cream :). Without it tastes a bit... metallic?

I'm not responsible for heart atacks...

It sounds kind of like a turkish coffee, MCbx, but suprisingly not like a turkish coffee.

@atomcomputer, can you mail a couple cases of that "Cannabis Fortifiant" to the US, preferably in a dried, power form.

Red Bull, V, Red Devil, Relentless and if I'm feelin' cheap, Tesco Kick (supermarket generic energy drink).

Red Bull - ~£1.30, 250ml
V - ~£1.00, 250ml
Red Devil - ~£1.00, 250ml
Relentless - ~£1.50, 500ml
Kick - ~£0.95, 1000ml (sometimes 2 for £1.50 or BOGOF)
Blue Charge - ~£0.99, 1000ml, (3 for £2.50)

All contain between 30-32mg caffeine per 100ml of liquid.
Tastes vary... some are sweeter, some are fruitier, I like 'em all.

I've also tried Pep and ProPlus caffeine pills, ProPlus being the stronger of the two but Pep being cheaper. They don't seem to hit as hard as the drinks but they're useful for topping up your caffeine if you have no caffeine drinks.

Now that I think about it, some ground penguin mint powder in a solution of 10ml Redline concentrate (two doses) might be good to remove the unpleasent aftertaste and kick even more caffiene into a caffiene/herb syrup.
"Welcome to the 1.3 gram (plus the powdered mints) place we call unconscious land!"

Not technically an energy drink, but coffee does me fine.

Coffee is the drink of kings, and most LANs have it for free if you're part of the crew.
