What a fraud! There are actually people out there believing this stuff is magical. I see them downing a Red Bull before a sports performance and telling others about how much better they feel. Me? Give me coffee. I'll have a beer when I'm done!

red bull does work, its not magical or anything, just a bunch of caffine, as far as alcohol goes, put them together. Jagermeister shot, drop it(shot glass and all) into a glass of redbull and slam, MMMMMMMMMMMM SO GOOD !!!!!

It has a fizzy, tart, metallic/vitaminy taste to it. I kind of like it, but it's overpriced.

Tastes like liquid SweeTart.

It doesn't do a damn thing for me, as far as the claims the company makes. I don't believe them to be true anyway. I do love the taste though. Whoever concocted this stuff should be recognized and given some kind of award.

Part of it is, there really is abit of caffeine in there. How much? Not more than a cup of coffee. With the coffee I sometimes drink, I dare say Red Bull has no more caffeine per unit volume than a good (or bad, depending on your viewpoint) robusta. A significant part of it is the power of suggestion, the power it has over us. If you're ignorant on how caffeine affects your body, and the composition of Red Bull, you're far more suggestable to this. Yeah, that's what I'm saying, your friends who find Red Bull magical will find a placebo just as magical.

I agree about being overpriced. It was $1.35/can at the shopette in Germany, saw some at a gas station a week ago, $2.30/can.

In defense of Red Bull I have to say that it cures the almighty hangover in conjunction with a cup of coffee.
