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

Anything other than drinking a red bull. These are packed with sugar and caffeine, and loaded with lots of things that are terrible for you. On top of that they taste terrible, even other energy drinks have figured out how to make their product taste good. Don't make your body go through the withdrawl after drinking one of these. There are way better ways to get caffeine.

You can't go wrong with redbull. I actually like the sugar free flavor better than any others. This is a good drink to keep yourself awake but not good for before exercising. I've gotten sick from drinking one prior to going out on a big run. I rarely drink these because I try to stay away from energy drinks, but when I need an extra boost this is definitely the brand I go to.

While red bull does give you energy it is not the most affordable option for that quick energy boost. It taste ok at best and it is loaded with sugar and contains more calories that most of its competitors i.e. monster & Rockstar. Also the price is not consistent with the size of the cans. I find it hard to believe that an 8oz can cost them so much that they have to charge $3.

My favorite energy drink. It has a wonderful taste, I drink it mostly for the taste not even for the energy. It does seem to refresh me when I need a little pick me up, But if you are planning on having to be away from a bathroom for a long time I would not drink it, because it goes straight through your bladder.. I do not have a crash with this, but I know some people did.

I personality went from monster to red bull. Red bull will give you a nice smooth rush of energy without making you as tired as other energy drinks do. It has a smooth taste to it and its not as carbonated as the average can of pop. Monster energy drinks have an ingredient that my body does not agree with. My body got addicted to it and after two years of drinking it my body finally reject the drink. My chest would start to hurt. Red bull does not give me the same effects that I get when drinking monster

I drank this all of the time when I worked. Now as a mommy to 5 I drink it most days (usually on Mondays) just to keep up with my kiddos. I love the taste and don’t ever feel jittery. I just feel a surge of energy. It’s great for those super sleepy Mondays and definitely let’s me be fun mommy.

My favorite every drink. I use it when I need a pick me up in the afternoon at work. I use it to mix cocktails for a night out. The taste is great and you really do feel the energy! Number one trusted brand

Redbull is okay, it tastes fine - better than any other energy drink , but I cannot get past how bad it is for you! And every time I drink it I have a crash afterwards and need to take a nap! I would much rather drink water or coffee or even soda to help wake me up.

I have tried this product in the past and will probably not buy it again. I felt like the crash after the benefits was not worth it. It did provide me with extra energy, almost too much, but once it wore off I was drained. After seeing other feedback in the media regarding this product it seems that it is probably not for me as it just didn't work with my bodies chemistry.

Red bull has honestly saved my life in so many instances, especially during finals or midterms. I usually try to stick with the sugar free version but the regular version is good as well. They are a bit pricey so I usually only buy them if I am in dire need of caffeine!
