So, with the LAN coming up, what's your energy drink of choice? Be as specific as youc an as there are several flavors of most drinks on the market now along with many sizes...

Please tell us when you use them, how often (every 4 hours, one in the morning...), and why?
The why can be: I've tried them all and monsters make me too gittery, Red Bull isn't strong enough, and NOS just does the job for me in the mornings, but at night i like a Bawls for extended energy without the spike...

Thanks - I had to go get a energy drink this morning as i'm draggin' and with all the options, i wasn't sure which to choose as they don't sell Bawls around here, which is my normal standby.

I prefer the blue Monster mixed with a 100% juice (like the V-8 Fusion) to help cut the strong flavor of the monster. The blue Monster's are the sugar free so i don't get the crash, but i get the energy.

This morning i got a Red Bull, mainly because they were actually cheaper than a monster and i just needed a little pick me up, so a huge monster just would've been overkill.

Bawls is really good mixed with Whiskey for a late night drink instead of a jagerbomb...

So i have a few tools in my fridge depending on what i need. although i typically don't drink very many, unless i'm at a LAN or plan on being out late and need to stay awake. If you've seen me in the morning, you know i'm naturally a pretty energetic person, without the aid of any chemicals.

I'll be downing Rockstar-Recovery (lemonade) This stuff s great. Tastes like lemonade. Is non-carbonated (so you don't have that bloated feeling)and it's sugar free no hard crash an hour after I drink it. The whole 16 fl/oz can is only 20 Calories, So I can watch my girlish figure ;) But I do enjoy me a Bawls Geek Beer as well.

I like the monster Dub edition that was "imported" doesn't have the harsh energy drink flavor like the green does. Also 5 hour energy does wonders also.

I actually don't chug the energy drinks anymore. You will, however, probably find me downing gallons of Arizona tea.

Why tea and not energy drinks? And why Arizona tea, from what i can see there are many tea's on the market? (I can't stand the stuff personally) i want more of a discussion of everyone's choices, not just that they do or don't drink a certian beverage...

thanks for elaborating. that's how we have discussions instead of topics that die after 5 posts.

:P

Caffeine and most other stimulants in larger doses don't sit well with my body, giving me headaches and sometimes migraines so I've turned to tea as a very mild alternative. Arizona Green tea with honey is just the easiest, best tasting alternative I can find nearly everywhere.

This


I drink it all the time when I want a boost or even just when I want something that taste pretty good to me. The whole can is only 20 cals.

I don't drink them a whole bunch but I'll just grab whatever is on sale at the gas station or grocery store and go from there. I try to look for the sugar free and 0 calorie ones or ones with low calories.
