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 don't mean to be a downer, but red bull tastes awful and makes me feel just as bad. I've only tried it once and elevated my heart rate to an unhealthy level, and made me feel nauseous. There are so many other alternatives for energy besides energy drinks, like vitamins and other supplements!

I'm not a fan on Red Bull, it's packed full of sugar and that mysterious ingredient called taurine....I guess it's their substitute for caffeine and it will keep you awake. For me, it makes me feel funny the next day after drinking it (when I used to drink it). Stay away from all that damaging sugar!!

I drink atleast one medium red bull per shift while working, these things keep me going without the annoying crash. $2.50 per van is well worth it to keep me going during the day. Plus, I love the taste as well.

I sometimes drink this instead of coffee because coffee stains my teeth. This one is good in keeping me awake and energetic, and I love its taste! I drink the original and the sugar free, it doesn't matter which. However, I try not to drink so much of it. Only on days when I'm really lacking sleep.

I've always thought that these were a little overpriced for the sizes but I used to drink these a lot until one day I got a severe headache and I began to feel really drowsy after about 2 hours or so. I haven't had any to drink since. The taste wasn't half bad when compared to other energy drinks.

Red Bull is definitely what fueled my late night lab reports, midterms, and Finals studying/cramming. If it weren't for Red Bull helping me stay awake to the point where I sometimes saw the sunrise, I'm not sure my grades would have been what they were. Thanks Red Bull. I would give it 5 stars but the taste isn't the most pleasant and the massive caffeine sometimes gave me heart palpitations if I didn't pace myself.

I'm not a fan of the flavor but I know my boyfriend likes Red Bull a lot. Definitely gives you a good energy boost and I like that they have a sugar free option. Also like that they have reps come to college campuses and that they come with my Chegg books sometimes- I'll drink a Red Bull if it's free!

If I could give this an A+++++, I would! I don't know what I would do without my Redbull. It's great for a quick pick-me-up. The best way for me to start my mornings. Coffee gives me bad acid reflux and Redbull doesn't do that to me. The variety of flavors is amazing! My favorite is the cranberry!
