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'm not a fan of Red Bull taste. it has a strange chemically taste.  Unfortunately doesn't give me as much of an energy boost as it seems to other people. I don't drink it often but does get me out of my spaced out moments at times but have still fallen asleep within 20 minutes of having the whole can. I prefer the competition

Bought a case of 24 though Amazon Prime when it was on sale. It comes out to about $1.20/per can! You can't beat this price especially when they are $1.99+/can everywhere else. Unlike other reviews, my package came without any dents or defect. Even at the normal price, it is still a lot cheaper than buying elsewhere. With Prime free shipping, it's a no brainer if you live on Red Bull or even a casual drinker of it. One case will last you a few months!

Pros: It's legit Red Bull! Reasonable price
Cons: You may get dents/spills as other have noted (I didn't)

Cant say that it gives me energy. Sometimes I hope and buy, but it didnt work lol. But I appreciate this brand because of great marketing and advertising and they are really the best in this field, so keep going, I will buy it from time to time! But dont know if I would recommend, probably not.

Not a huge fan of energy drinks or the taste/smell of red bull but tried the Winter Edition flavour that came out a few months ago and now I’m hooked. The flavour is plum based, which upon hearing that thought it would be gross, but it’s a light fruity flavour with spices like clove and cinnamon mixed in. Too bad it’s limited edition because this is the first red bull I’ve actually ever enjoyed.

So addictive to this brand.  No it’s not good for you all the time, But  it just  hits the spot in the right place.   You feel more energised after having this drink.  It definitely has a distinct taste which I prefer over most other energising drinks. In terms of the way the drink is canned, I believe they may have started off the trend of the tall slimline cans, which is now being copied by other brands. Definitely prefer to drink out of this type of can than the short stubby ones, and it easily fits into pockets or bags. The only down side to this product is , I wish it really did give me wings!

I consume this beverage every day. I think it's always good however every now and then I run into the regular 12 ounce can that has a very bitter taste. I informed red Bull about this and made phone contact with a representative. They asked that I keep the cans next time it happens. They asked how many out of each month it happens and I replied 6 cans approximately. They said they will look into it and ended the phone call. I was waiting for an offer of free tickets for redbull drinks or something but no dice there as fast as I know however if they do send something I'll be sure to write back on this forum and note it.

After trying the Red Bull energy drink for myself to see how this drink was like, I will never drink this energy drink ever again. First of all I did not really enjoy the taste of it and it was frightening by how fast my heart was racing. It did, in the sense of a energy drink gave me attentiveness, and allowed me to focus at the tasks at hand and was alert for several hours without crashing like you would experience from sugary beverages but I know that its filled with chemicals I cannot pronounce and have also heard a lot of negative comments from friends and family warning me to not drink that stuff and listing all the bad things it does for your body and I even have a friend that drinks it like water, now that's completely unhealthy and dangerous.

A great taste energy drink. I have it when i am at work and when my battery is low. It gives us energy and helps us to stay awake for long. The tasty is really great and will tend to buy more once you start drinking this energy drink. Available at all stores across UAE. The price might be a bit high but the taste is what makes me buy over and over again.
