In 1982, Dietrich Mateschitz became aware of products called tonic drinks, which enjoyed widespread popularity throughout Far East. His idea to market these functional drinks outside Asia evolved whilst he sat at a bar at the Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong. In 1984, Mateschitz founded Red Bull. He fine-tuned the product, developed a unique marketing concept and started selling Red Bull Energy Drink on the Austrian market in 1987. This was not only the launch of a completely new product, in fact it was the birth of a totally new product category. In 2008, Red Bull launched its own Cola: Red Bull Simply Cola -Strong and Natural. Very much in line with the needs of today's consumers, Red Bull Cola - unlike traditional colas - only contains ingredients of 100% natural sources. In 2009, Red Bull extended its product portfolio with Red Bull Energy Shots: Starting in the USA, now gradually rolling out globally. Around 4 billion cans of Red Bull are consumed every year. The responsibility for the success of the world's No. 1 energy drink is shared by the company's 6,900 employees around the world. The Red Bull headquarters are based in Fuschl am See, not far from Salzburg, Austria. Features include: -Pack of twenty four, 8.4-ounces per unit (total of 201.6 ounces)-Functional beverage with a unique combination of ingredients-Specially developed for times of increased mental and physical exertion-Vitalizes body and mind-Increases performance, concentration, reaction speed and improves vigilance

Red Bull energy drinks sponsor a lot of independent events like BC One bboy championship, for this I give them great respect.
In Canada they were the first major energy drink so it's not surprising it's amongst the favorites.
The popularity also increases with the alcohol mixing crowd such as the college students or, the club hoppers. Jager bombs make for a fun time.
With all that said I would still rather drink a Monster energy drank any time over a Red Bull. I would even take the Rockstar over red bull, the only one that tastes less foul would be the NOS drinks.

I really do not like this drink at all. I do not really know its function, because it does not cause me any noticeable effect. However sometimes I drink it lol.
I really do not really like this drink, even if it is very famous. In addition, it is a drink that gives an extra touch of energy because it is an energy drink but I really do not notice any difference, although if I have seen that many people keep them active and awake.

I used to drink a lot of these when I was in college : it works. You can study longer, you can do more stuff in one day and you can concentrate even if you're exhausted. But, I also had a couple of urine infection directly related to Red Bull. In fact, I have been avoiding this product and haven' t drink it for almost 2 years now. I don't recommend it, but I get why people are addicted to it or can be needing it.

I've tried several brands of this product and the RedBull brand with Monster are the ones I like the most. The taste of redbull I like it a lot although for my taste it lacks varieties since the Monster brand has much more variety and the containers are bigger. About the taste I must say that is as good as monster

Great product as far as energy drinks go. The flavor is kind of candy-ish in my opinion but I will usually choose the brand because of all the great sponsorships they do and how they support local communities, such as sponsoring my universities ski and snowboard club every year by giving us redbulls for everyone on every trip - a much needed gift when you're already on the bus at 530am!

These aren't the greatest tasting. But they do the trick. And help me get through the day. Usually rather all natural stuff tho. But these again are convienent and help alot.

Having a rough day, keep finding yourself dozing off?! This guy here will save the day! The taste is amazing, and amount is perfect to give you the kickstart you need. If you work some long days as I sometimes do, going to events and what not, RedBull will be your best friend. Be careful not to drink too much or you'll find your heart racing an you may sweat. Portion control is important!

Honestly this is one of the worst energizers I've tried I do not like its taste, the texture it has when you take it in addition they should change the packaging

Absolutely not a fan! I try to keep things all natural and I tried red bull one time and I couldn't sit still. I didn't like the way it made my body feel. The only reason why I rated it 2 stars was because it really did it's job, it gave me energy even though it was artificial but coming down from it was awful. I don't think I've ever crashed harder.

Very tasty and bubbly yet not too sweet. I love Red Bull and regularly consume both the normal and sugar free version. It's quite a unique taste compared to anything else on the market. I drink these while studying or driving to help give me a bit more focus.
