Sugar, caffeine and some herbs Go with Mountain Dew, it's cheaper and tastes better.

Mixed with vodka it's good.

Since I've got a friend who's got a product sponsorship with Red Bull, I can pull the occasional can out of his 'fridge when I stop by. I don't mind the taste; have gotten used to it. I don't know if it helps athletic performance (at least not for the long-distance stuff I do), but it does seem to help keep me awake when I need to make that long drive home after a hard day at the races. YMMV [:)]

Is it any good?

I'm thinking of forming a religion based around this product.

Pop one 30 minutes or so before your next work out.  You'll see.

The only reason you'll stay awake with red bull is because of the taste in your mouth.. like some sort of toxic cherry mix.

I rather like Blue Ox Citrus cut with about 25% water for my late-night (0400) study sessions... Keeps me awake..

These aren't fraud in the purest sense, since they do keep you awake.. but it's the suger and caffeine.. not their magical herb crap.

Red bull has no more caffeine than a cup of coffee (the small 6 oz size). If you want caffeine, stick with D&D...its cheaper.

I tried red bull, nyquil tastes a lot better. IMO

If i need a boost due to burning the midnite oil the night before.

I prefer...

1. an unsweetened extra strong double espresso  from the nearest vending machine.

2. caffeine pills.
