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

This tastes like sweet tarts in a can and if that sounds appetizing to you then we are on the same boat. I love red bull although if consumed in bulk aka there 24 oz you could find yourself having some chest pain due to the drink as I have. Drink responsibly.

I LOVE red bull. I know it's not really healthy for you and has a ton of sugar but it just tastes so good.

I don't know what it is but the flavor is so good to me. I absolutely love mixing this with vodka for a mixed drink, it's one of the ONLY things I will make a mixed drink with. It's got the perfect amount of carbonation and caffeine.

I also love that red bull is so accessible and comes in so many different sizes. I can find it almost anywhere (gas stations, grocery stores, bars, drugstores) and I can get the size that best fits my needs. I cannot stand the sugar free version but love the regular red bull.

I'm a barista, so you know when I reach for a Red Bull it's because I'm really struggling. It may be lip-puckeringly sweet and sour, kidof gritty (probably from sugar), and the bubbles make you burp and those burps burn your nose. But it gets the job done, and I have to give it 5 stars for that reason.

I love the taste of redbull. I have never been able to drink any other energy drink. When I worked nights I would drink one every so often on a bad night to stay awake. I don't recommend drinking them often as they are very very bad for you and your heart.

I try to stay away from energy drinks, but when I need them I go for Redbull. I enjoy the taste and the serving size is perfect. If I’m driving late at night or need to cram for a final, I’ll have one can next to me to break open in case of emergency.

This is a great energy drink. It tastes great and gives you the energy you want from an energy drink. I drink it before I go to raves and I never get sick or get cramps from it and it keeps me going all night.

If it's not the sugar free one then I won't drink it because of the sugar content. They do have really crisp, refreshing flavors, but I drink the sugar free one at least once a week. This keeps me super energized for the day when I've had little to no sleep.

If you love it, you love it. If you hate it, you'll love it. There is no room for improvement. The flavor is strangely addicting. At one point in my life I drank these things regularly to help maintain energy. Now I will only buy these when Im feeling indulgent.

Red Bull is great but has always been overpriced in my mind. Some of the new flavors are actually really good but none of them have ever really done anything as far as energy or focus for me. But if you want something tasty a small this is a great choice.
