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 used to be able to drink Red Bull without any problem, but these days it makes my heart race. The taste is pretty good, it kind of tastes like candy. However, the way that it gets my heart racing is quite uncomfortable. I would not suggest this to anyone who cannot tolerate caffeine well.

This used to be my go to energy drink (I’ve been dieting now and have cut out all drinks except water and coffee). The taste is pretty good, not my favorite but not terrible by any means. The price point is typical of energy drinks. It gives a good boost of energy and no terrible crash.

I run on red bull, especially while gaming with my marine in Hawaii, because when he is off work its usually late here and I like to play games with him on the 360 and the only way besides taking a nap is to drink my red bull. Red bull also got me through long nights at college and though long shifts at work. It is an amazing product and tastes great, especially the new editions, Red, Blue and Silver.

Flavor not quite as good as Monster, but maybe a little better energy buzz? I don't know, I would prefer a little less energy to better flavor, but I still like Redbull.

Redbull is an absolute go to for my sister and I in any circumstance, every road trip we've been on we've brought an entire case with us. I love the flavor I just wish the price was a little better because there are other energy drinks out there that are on par with redbull but are way cheaper to buy in individual cans. Redbull is cheaper to buy from a store like Cash & Carry by the case unfortunately.

I am literally obsessed with Red Bull. I could not get through work without it. I actually just went to the store to buy a 12 pack. I always buy the 12 packs because I end up saving more money that way. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars is because of the sugar content. It has so much sugar in it, but I don’t like the sugar free. It gives me so much energy though and it also puts me in a really good mood.

Redbull Energy drinks does exactly what it states and then some! When I drink these babies, I really do feel like it gave me wings; LOL, my only caution is to warn you not to drive too many, due the the high intake of caffeine and sugar. The side effect can be rough after you drink several, other than that, it's a good way to kick start if your low on energy. I recommend for a temporary source not a daily source.

So back when I was younger and didn't care too much about reading labels and whatnot this was my go-to drink to get energy. It was a very instant drink once you drink it you had energy but that's not to say that it's good for you, this drink is not good for you because a lot of the ingredients in it is bad and we aren't supposed to be drinking energy drinks to get energy. If I seek energy is from coffee and that's it

Red bull is a great staple energy drink. It is well known and they do great advertising with ambassadors. I remember seeing the cars drive around handing red bull out as I walked home from high school. Red bull sent my sorority a bunch of drinks for our bid day!! We also used to drink a can before our dance competitions. They give u intense energy that can be too much sometimes if you have an empty stomach.
