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 admit there is a kick to a red bull, but for the price the drink doesn't compare to a Rockstar. I do enjoy these when I'm drinking vodka, but besides that the. Taste is less than desirable. I guess that makes the size of the can a good thing, because of the crappy taste you don't have to drink a bunch of it with their skinny cans.

I have tried to like Red Bull. I have bought it several times, tried mixing it with juices, liquors etc. I just don't like the taste at all. There are plenty of other of energy drinks out there that taste good. I will just pass on this one.

My favorite energy drink by far. I love all the flavors, even the sugar free ones are good and don't have that nasty aftertaste that most sugar free soda or drinks have. I would definitely recommend this energy drink to anyone who needs that extra bit of energy to help get through the rest of your day or to start your day really energized and alert. Lol!

Apparently it does not give you wings... But it does give you the jittery, happy, caffeine buzz that others of its kind are known for. The taste is odd, but nothing you can't get past if you're a dedicated caffeine junky dying for a fix. But I'll stick to my one cup of coffee. I have developed a sensitivity to these kinds of drinks.

Red Bull is pretty gross but you know, it's caffeinated so whatever. I find it usually makes me sleepier than if I don't drink it, plus a lot more nauseous, but that's all part of the extreme Red Bull lifestyle. I mix it with cheap wine sometimes, and share it with my mom because she has a lot of issues. Great stuff, highly recommended.

I absolutely love the taste of Red Bull, as well as the variety of flavors they are now coming out with. The Tropical flavor that has recently come out has now become my new favorite. It truly gives me the energy I need, and I honestly drink it almost every day I get a chance to do so. Pretty kick-ass with alcohol as well I must say.

I usually only drink Red Bull when I'm in desperate need of an energy boost and need to finish assignments soon. It tastes terrible, and makes me burp a lot, which is weird because I hardly ever burp, even with soda I don't burp so much. Nevertheless, it does keep me wide awake and give me enough energy to work on whatever I need do.

Red Bull is my saving grace during finals week. The sugar free one is the best. It gives you the energy you want without all the calories. Best to stock up on these when they go on sale as they can get a little costly. Also, too many in a short amount of time can make you jumpy so be careful and test it out before you drink too many.

Red Bull is okay, the taste makes me cringe. I don't feel as perked up with energy when I drink this though, other energy drinks seem to work a lot better and are a lot more cheaper. Personally, I just love a really good cup of coffee. The only time I ever drink Red Bull, is when the vendors are giving it away for free at Dragon Con.
