    Everyone always touts that energy drink are bad. It's suppose to be common knowledge.. I never really drink them for this reason but I didn't get much sleep las nite and I had class early this morning so I picked one up. I was reading the nutrition information and I realized its loaded with b vitamins and taurine. Only about 100 cals a serving. So how bad can they really be???

    Yeah but they have tons of sugar and the zero carb ones are loaded with artificial sweetners. It's cool if you can get away with drinking one every so often but for me it was like a 3 a day habit at one point.

    Rockstar Sugar Free (White Can) & Rockstar Zero Carb (Blue Can)

    ^These are easily my favorites. They both contain 0g carbs and only 10 calories.

    I used to be a heavy consumer of energy drinks back in the day.

    Sugar Free Red Bull has a good profile, but they all taste like bad stuff to me
    no matter if they're no cals, no sugar no whatever..I don't trust 'em
    There are so many healthier things to drink

    Blue Rockstar for sure. The new blue Monster from the Nitrous series is freakin delicious, and now they have the zero sugar/carb Import can too.
    Rip It's Sugar free one is freaking amazing though. And a buck.

    There's 1 I like forget the name, they market it as a hang over recover an it's lemonade it's been a good 2-3 months since I had a can though.

    Try to keep stims low now so when I need em I can use them sparingly and moderately.

    Rockstar Recover? Yellow can? Or Rehab from Monster? Black can yellow print.

    Yeah, I wasn't a fan of Monster Absolute Zero. I thought both of Rockstar's options of Zero Carb/Sugar were better.

    I love monster absolute zero i think it tastes better then the low carb, i figure it won't make you fat or hurt your gains and im not paranoid when it comes to artificial sweetners.

    I'm pretty sure that I'm addicted to energy drinks. I can't stop drinking them, no matter what they are. I feel slightly better if I buy all the low carb ones. Monster Absolute Zero, the blue can Rockstar, recently I've been seeing the no carb Lemonade version of Amp, and Xyience energy drinks are really good, too.

    No joke... on weekends I drink 3-4 of these. I don't get rushes or anything, never have. I just like the taste of them. :/

    Coffee is much better. Plus its loaded with antioxidants. But I guess energy drinks are all the rage with young folks these days. They do come in pretty cans and I guess the younger crowd is attracted to that. Shiny stuff! Yeah!

    You know, dollar for dollar you would be better off drinking preworkout. Its much cheaper and many pwo have a lot more beneficial ingredients for your body in them.

    I agree T-Bone.
    I do think Coffee(black) is a far superior beverage.

    I have recently quit all carbonated drinks. I didn't quit for all the obvious 'not good for you' reasons...they were giving my stomach really bad acid issues.

    I still do have my beer from time to time though.
