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

Initially I was not the biggest fan of the idea of energy drinks, but after my first fashion week I quickly became a fan of these beverages. Although they aren't going to take you from practically zombie to morning glory, they will give you an added boost and give you a kick of energy. There is little to no crash, and I find you aren't jittery like with other energy drinks. Taste you quickly become accustomed to.

I used to drink these all the time in Jr High and High school, but to be honest I never really liked the taste. I'd be a little wired for the rest of the day, but I feel like energy drinks just mess me up. I prefered monster energy drinks over red bull. Now it's coffee coffee and more coffee.

Red Bull is one of the few energy drinks I have tried that actually does give you a quick boost of energy. The flavour is nice, although it does leave a peculiar after taste in your mouth. It is a drink that you should only have in moderation though as I have found that having too many will leave you feeling a bit jittery. Its a great drink if you need to pull an all nighter, but have it in moderation.

I usually don't drink a lot of energy drinks. But when I'm in a pinch and I need that pick me up, I will always go out and grab myself a Red Bull. I find that it gives me the energy that I need to get through my day, even if I have it later in the evening. But when I'm ready to go to bed, I don't have a problem settling down and falling asleep. I also love their limited flavours and I always grab them when I see them.

As a basketball player I remember drinking Redbull before every match and it actually did help me to perform well. But later i discovered that started having some fitness issues and my doctor immediately asked me to STOP using it.
Although its an energy drink, I still wouldn't recommend it to any sports player or someone who's involved into fitness and sport.
Tastes like a cough syrup if not chilled.

When I drank it I thought Red Bull had a great flavor, but I have recently gotten off of caffeine. Red Bull has healthy ingredients in it but not enough to actually make a healthy change to your body or mind, you would have to drink more then 20 to get the mental boost it promotes, yet you're only supposed to drink two a day. Skip the Red Bull, sleep enough and get on a regular sleep schedule instead.

I Can’t stand red bull,I think the moto is daft “red bull gives you wings” I get the concept because there claiming it give you that much energy you feel like you complete the impossible (fly) but I think it tastes horrible,it’s affordable and I’d say the right amount per can for that boost that you need,but I’d prefer to add it to an alcoholic bevvy at least that way you can’t taste it! Haha enjoy....
Is not for nothing that the commercial success of the product is, it is a delight and you never proved, then buy your it leaves you very expired and excited for the party, let not miss on my trip with the guys.and you are waiting for that to go shopping, will soon before they run out

Red bull knows how to get the party started. I love the small can, it’s easy to throw in my purse or car for that extra pick me up when I need it. Great value as well. It is definitely my go to energy drink

I drunk these red balls when I was ill, probably shouldn’t of done that but it made me more motivated to get out of bed and go to school and get things done so I do agree that these work but I wouldn’t recommend these for an everyday use because they aren’t good for the heart.
