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

This is a must have during each semester! I always keep a case on hand and it is perfect for those late night study sessions. The B-12 vitamins help keep your mind going and you don't have that dreaded crash effect. Personally I find the original and sugar free red bulls to have the best taste vs. the newer ones that have different flavors. My least favorite was the silver addition, it was simply dreadful.

This is my favorite more expensive energy drink. The taste is literally the best and it really packs a kick. The can is a bit small but I feel like if I had more I would never sleep again. I'm a big fan of the original but I also enjoy the other flavors they have been coming out with lately.

"Red Bull gives you wings." it is in fact true when you're stuck working a 12+ hour day. No, they're not good for you in any shape, way, or form, but hey you wouldn't be here if you didn't need that extra little kick in your step, or in this case WINGS. Great flavor, super zingy and refreshing.

Being a college student, I have seen many people around campus drinking Red Bulls and mixing them with other drinks, but they are not for me! I don't like the taste and can't take more than a sip. I have found that other drinks like coffee and tea can give me energy , and taste a lot better!

I don't understand how anyone could enjoy the taste of these drinks! I can't stand to even smell them! I have downed them while plugging my nose, just to see if they give you energy, and I honestly did not feel an energy boost... I felt jittery, but I did not have any more energy! Big fail!

So redbull isn't the most pleasant tasting beverage but that isn't why we drink it. It is really great for an energy boost. Just make sure you don't drink too many in one day as they have a lot of caffeine which whether you realize it or not, it is a drug. And it does make changes to your body such as increased heart rate and high levels of caffeine can cause anxiety for some people. Drink in moderation.

Taste decent good energy boost. Easy to find. Like the fact it comes in reg and sugar free. Purchase Ted Bull about 2 to 3 times a month. It doesn't have a after taste. Decent price for the amount of drink in can. Wouldn't mind if it came in a bottle so It would be resealabke. Over all a good product.

I *love* RedBull! For me the taste isn't as bad as some people say, it's kinda like sweet-tarts. It gives me a little pep, but not much. I drink it more because I like the taste. Only problem is the crash... probably from the sugar, but I crash hard sometimes. Overall, LOVE the product and will continue drinking it until they stop making it! Sugar free is gross, but the zero calorie version is not too bad.

Out of all energy drinks, Red Bull is the first on the market. It was created and perfected years ago and RB is still creating other flavors to adapt to all consumer profiles. As far as health benefits, it is the healthiest out of the category with multiple B vitamins, Taurine (in fish, baby food, and already naturally occurring in the body). I love this brand and love this product. HIGHLY recommend.
