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

How do I love thee Redbull? Let me count the ways...
But seriously I love Redbull. Anyone who knows me knows I usually walk around with one in my hand at all times. While I know I shouldn't drink many of these, I just love the flavor.
This is my ride or die drink.

keeps me awake for classes! the taste is something you really need to get used to, at first it tastes awful, but then you develop a tolerance eventually. my only concern with this is that it makes my heart beat really fast, but that's probably because i have an anxiety disorder and i probably should not be drinking energy drinks. but idgaf

I love red bull especially mixed with Buchanan's Deluxe 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky . Ugh such a good combination, if you haven’t yet tried them together you should. Of course only if you’re 21+. I know they have the flavored ones now but nothing beats the original one.

When choosing a energy drink i most often pick RedBull because it seems i don't get the shakes from it. I am a simple women when it comes to energy drinks i rather get the orginal flavors then to step out of what i know for a new flavor. The taste of the orginal is really good, it's not bitter at all. RedBull is smooth, and taste for something you can enjoy while getting energy at the same time. RedBull is my go to energy drink, but i also like Monster as well.

This drink is super popular between my friends being that we all have to stay awake for exams every week.  Personally I'm not too fond of the flavor but that's just a taste preference.  Oddly enough this drink also puts me to sleep although it should keep me awake for hours considering it's caffeine content.  Strange.

I rarely drink energy drinks but I turn to them when I'm in desperate need of a pick me up. And every time I get red bull I am left disappointed. While it does pick me up a bit it taste horrible and ultra sweet. My sensitive stomach is not a fan and I can't even attempt it on an empty stomach. Would much rather go with the monster zero drinks.

Yum! This is great when you get them at the bar with your favorite shot. You can't even taste the alcohol and the effect of the caffeine with the alcohol is perfect for a night of fun. Just don't do too many of these though.  Red Bull Energy Drink

This is my splurge. It's my afternoon pick me up. I really like the summer
Edition that is grapefruit flavored it's my favorite. I usually buy 3-4 of these a week. Coffee doesn't do anything for me bit red bull does. The only negative thing I will say is people who know that I drink them constantly harp on me about how bad they are for me. That they are harmful to your kidneys and heart. I would like to see some research about this to see if there is any truth to that.

Red Bull is definitely a great energy drink in that it really does help you to focus and really energizes you. However, the taste is pretty unpleasant and it’s not too much fun to drink. I usually purchase the smallest can available because it gives me enough energy to get through the day and I don’t have to suffer the taste too long. I would recommend for anyone just trying energy drinks and are afraid others like Monster might be too much.

Only thing that gets me through long days and sleepless nights 😴 I have two dogs, a cat and a hard working boyfriend. I feel like a mother and I'm not, yet. Constantly cleaning, my pets fight for my attention and keep me up all night trying to make sure they bother me instead of waking up their dad. I take naps when they do and my god red bull is a life saver. I cannot wait until our Timberwolf Siberian husky gets older and adjusts to our routine so I can get some sleep 😂
