With high amounts of caffeine, natural stimulants such as Guarana and Ginseng, and countless chemicals previously unheard of in the English language, Energy Drinks promise to pump you up for an all-night party, a cross-country drive or just a late-night cram session.

The big dog in the house, Red Bull burst into America in 1997 and is credited with starting the energy drink craze that continues to this day. With its slim can and light taste (compared to other energy drinks), it remains a favorite at parties, concerts and clubs.
The energy drink with a very unfortunate name that has gained massive popularity among the hardcore gaming community – unique from other energy drinks in that it comes in a stylish glass bottle, and its unbelievably high caffeine content.
America’s first energy drink recently underwent a massive makeover, replacing their standard pop cans and bottles with new huge resealable metal containers. What’s on the inside is different as well, with four all-new flavors introduced to the mix.
If anyone is going to challenge Red Bull for number one status, it’s Rockstar. This well-marketed drink packs a big pop in an even bigger can (twice the size of Red Bull’s) and is available in regular and diet versions.
If you want the kick of an energy drink/alcohol mix but lack the mixing skill (or the motor capabilities…depending on just how much you’ve partied) you might want to reach for Sparks, an energy drink with alcohol.
