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 love Red Bull with my vodka and the flavor is great. If they weren’t so expensive I would drink them for energy and such during the day. I think they are too pricey for daily consumption.

Mixed with or just alone. The original Red Bull is my favorite and a great product. I don’t think it is to pricey and it gets the job done without having a crash a few hours after drinking.

The product is delicious! It is in kind of a smaller can than is ideal, but the energy works decent. Overpriced for what it is in my opinion but I still find myself purchasing repetitively!
Red Bull does not give you wings... but it taste great ! Personally it doesn't give me much energy at all unless I drink 2 or 3. But I'm actually in love with the new flavors they have.

Let's be honest, not many people drink Red Bull straight, and if they do, they have no taste buds. Red Bull is most commonly consumed with an alcoholic drink: most likely vodka. While the taste of Red Bull may still sting your tongue on how much like actual bull pee it resembles, it still provides the buzz you're looking for.

The best way to drink Red Bull is to cut it with something else. Can't stand that Red Bull sting? Cut your Red Bull and Vodka with some Gatorade. It also helps with lessening the hangover.

I've tried the Blueberry and Raspberry flavors as well. The taste hits you in the aftertaste mostly. Blueberry is a nice mixer and isn't as harsh as the regular flavor. Raspberry is also a nice mixer, but tastes way too sugary and sweet.

Stay away from the silver cans. Horrible taste.

I go through spirts of being addicted to these then not wanting them for a while after my pregnancy I’ll prob have them again once in a while. They are good and give you a boost but not health wise

You can literally find these at just about any convenience store or grocery store, other energy drinks aren't as easy to find. Tastes great and works as long as you're not an energy drink enthusiast like myself. Once you drink these drinks multiple times on a daily basis your body gets used to the ingredients that are supposed to give you energy, then they no longer work; also, you experience what feels like withdraws if you don't drink at least one a day. In other words, these things are addictive. However, I buy them because I love the taste of them and its instant headache relief for me, but they are a little bit on the expensive side-- there are other energy drinks that taste just as good but are cheaper. Good alternatives: Rockstar, Full Throttle, Monster; Full Throttle is my favorite.

I LOVE RedBull, Especially when I Add a shot or two of Flavored Syrup- Like Strawberry, to make "Strawberry RedBull" OR Raspberry to make "Raspberry RedBull", And there are DOZENS of other Flavored Syrup Flavors available to buy and Add to your RedBull. I also used to enjoy RedBull & Vodka, and the RedBull hid the vodka taste pretty good but that only seemed to get me tipsy faster, and the RedBull DEFINATELY keeps You energized & awake. PLEASE Be CAREFUL if You ever do mix Caffeine with Alcohol!! RedBull is an Amazing Energy Drink, and tastes good(un-like MOST energy drinks). Also, it has never made me feel like I'm "Crashing" after the energy boost wears down, and has only given me the high-caffeine "Jitters" when I drank too many in one day Or when I mixed it with other sources of Caffeine.
