[BAWLS]

Too bad they're virtually nowhere these days. (besides the internet)



Bawls is the only energy drink I've ever had that after drinking a bottle I actually felt like I entered into a fight or flight mode energy high. It was actually kind of scary, I thought I was having a heart attack.

Black coffee in the morning, Orange Pekoe (with lemon) in the afternoon. And sometimes a gin & tonic in the evening.

Never had an energy drink and never really felt the need to. If I thought I needed something, I'll drink a cup or 2 of coffee, but that's very rarely.

Energy drinks generally taste like shit too me. Granted, I don't like Mtn. Dew either, but if I'm somewhere where the tap is free or a family get together with a cooler full, I'll generally drink as much as I can to see how sick I get and how bad I start to slur and type like a moron due to the caffeinated sugar rush. Why? Because I have nothing better to do usually at those kind of gatherings.

Is the regular stuff different from the cherry stuff? I had the cherry one and it felt like it had much less caffeine than a cup of green tea usually does.

I don't drink strong coffee for exactly the reason you just described. Having my heart rate hit 180 while I was sitting around doing nothing was scary.

The problem with energy drinks is that if you don't work out straight after having them the energy turns into fat, and even then I'd rather not use them before I workout. Meh.

Oh and there's an article that's most likely true (or at the very least has enough truth to it to make me never want to drink energy drinks ever again) that circulated after a woman died after drinking multiple red bulls and not burning the energy they had given her.

Honestly, if you don't abuse caffeine to begin with, even a few sips of an energy drink should be enough to wake you right up. If you can drink a whole can without feeling anything that may not be the best sign.

It does depend on who you are too. People with ADHD are calmed by stimulants, for example. Where having a cigarette gives me an intense high I dislike, it lets them relax and removes the urge to [b]do something NOW[/ib]. Sometimes normal stimulants aren't anywhere near enough and thus you get people keeping themselves calm by taking things like Dexedrine, which is what the Americans were giving pilots in Afghanistan so they could manage 36-hour operations.

Mpower, Tiger, Black. Only as an eye-opener halfway through the workday when I've had too much to drink the night before.

It's possible, I've had their root beer energy drink too and it did not have the same effect.

Cheaper and stronger. No milk or sugar and tastes better.

I rarely drink energy drinks, but when I do it's most likely Full Throttle Blue Demon or Venom.
And usually said drinks are my emergancy wake up call.. When Coffee fails me that day. :S

Butthe 2 drinks I want to try are Brawndo and BAWLS.. BAWLS mainly as my family has several bottles up on collection, even if I dont like the taste (wehn I get it..) I'll keep the bottle.

5 hour energy's really work. there's a 7 hour energy drink called redline but I prefer the 5, since the 7 has worse side effects. it also tastes like shit and you have to drink more lol

http://www.energyfiend.com/the-caffeine-database

Most energy drinks don't even come close to the caffeine content of some types of coffee. Red Bull is a tame 80 mg of caffeine, the same as a cup of good Italian Espresso, wheres most standard-issue, All-American filter coffees (eww) hover around 300-something if you drink all of it, unless of course you're talking about a caffeine additive like 5150 Juice.

But for coffee, in general, the more the coffee is brewed in contact with boiling water, the worse (higher) its caffeine content (and its DMCHOSHO-inducing properties, may I add).

Edit: LMAO I saw this and couldn't stop thinking about Sodaholic ΧD

"Hemorush".... "Extreme skin-bursting pumps"...

Sounds like it actually induces hemorrhoids.

I never noticed any effect from any energy drink. I rarely drink any, maybe I'll buy one every 3 or 4 months on impulse.

I can drink lots of coffee before I go to bed and not have any problems falling asleep.

Meh.

Lol indeed, the pic changed. This one was the one I originally linked to:

But they both perfectly convey the meaning of snaking.

I enjoy redbull once in a while, I'll have one probably once every 1-2 weeks. Most my energy comes from good old English tea!
