Thread Name: BS: Red Bull Energy Drink - Anybody tried it
Subject: RE: BS: Red Bull Energy Drink - Anybody tried it
There are a number of similar beverages available in the UK. None of them tastes all that delicious. The only time I find it beneficial is when occasionally driving longer distances, late in the evening. Every now and again, I have been known to become drowsy while driving.

Keeping a cup of coffee on the go, can be impractical and dangerous in a car travelling at high speed. Red Bull (and similar) does give me a lift, and keeps me alert until I can get to a point where I can safely pull over. It may be psychological, it may be that it tastes pretty foul, I don't know. But it does wake me up. I don't think it gives me any energy though - it just wakes me up. I tried caffeine tablets, and they don't work for me.
