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

I work in retail and during the holidays we have crazy, crazy hours. I need to be on my toes 8-16 hours a day a lot of times I don't get a break. I can grab a sugar free Red Bull and it gives me the energy to last through the day and stay focused. I can not use the original RB. I makes my heart beat like crazy and I get the jitters. SF is a great option to the original formula for those of you that want the energy and focus without the side effects.

I honestly drink these weekly, they are unfortunately a staple in my everyday life. I absolutely love Red Bull when I'm tired at work, but I still need the energy to do what I need to do. These actually do give me the energy and they don't taste all that bad. I love cranberry flavored red bull, it's probably my favorite.

The original and sugar-free have an unsettling aftertaste to me. I prefer the new flavors, cranberry, lime, and blueberry. They are still great to use as a mixer for your pre-game festivities before heading out on the weekends (ahem college kids) and are fantastic for energy on their own straight from the can. RedBull provides quick energy without giving you the "shakes" or a crash feeling a few hours after consuming. RedBull is still my go-to for an energy drink.

I used to drink these throughout the day in college, especially during midterms and finals. The taste is pretty good imho (a lot better than other energy drinks), but I can only drink these ice cold. If they are room temp they taste kinda gross. I wouldn't recommend for those with caffeine sensitivity or heart sensitivity.

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.

My entire senior year was a huge struggle, trying to work, complete school, and participate in extra curriculars was exhausting. Red Bull was really something that kept me up to take all my tests, and study and make it through every day.

I love Redbulls. Whether it's in a mixed drink or in an Italian Soda (use either watermelon or strawberry syrup, SO good for a summer mid-day pick me up!) Even by itself these drinks are enjoyable and provide energy to make it through a hard day's work or a long night's study session. I think my favorite way its the Italian Soda during the summer, you can request it be a sugar free one with sugar free syrups for a lighter version! Although these drinks are not the healthiest or best for your bod, they are still delicious and make a lot of different great drinks combined with fruity flavors!

Red Bull is my go to energy drink. Unlike other energy drinks this one doesn’t not make my stomach upset or have the opposite effect and make me feel sluggish. I would say it’s average pricing among the energy drink selections. It is great by itself or you can mix it with cherry vodka for an adult beverage. I also get Red Bull with vanilla in it from sheetz that is really good too! It can be mixed with wines as well. Would definitely recommend trying for anyone that drinks energy drinks

The taste of redbull is like any other energy drink out there. It is sweet and addicting when served chilled but it also gives a horrible crash effect like coffee does with caffeine. Even the sugar free one has that effect but not as bad as the sugared regular one. Both taste alike if your going for taste factor. It certainly gives you energy but for me it only lasted a couple hours and then comes the crazy heart attack waiting to happen.
