energy drinks don't affect me. i've been drinking coffee since i was 7. so my caffeine tolerance is high. Monster Assault is the best tasting energy drink. and of the new hybrid soda/energy drinks just comparing MDX and Vault, Vault tastes better. again, i can't speak to their effectiveness as energy boosters.

Meh.  If I want to stay up, I'll drink coffee.  If I want something that tastes really sugary, I'll drink a soda.

meh... energy drinks are all a sham.  the caffeine in them doesn't give you energy ... it blocks the sleep receptors in your brain.  so even if you are tired, your mind doesn't feel it.  the drinks usually have a good amount of B vitamins in them.  if i remember correctly, those vitamins help in digestion a lot.  so that's where you get the energy from.  if you just rely on the drinks to get a boost... you're not gonna get it.  you need to drink em while/after you eat so that the stuff in the energy drink can break down the food and give you energy. 

personally... taste wise i like red bull and bawls.

read my post...

the caffeine effect will differ from person to person depending on how much their usual intake is.  the  energy that you could possibly get from it would depend on other factors besides the drink itself.

Energy drinks don't do it for me. Be careful if you're not caffeine tolerant though-they have a tendency to accelerate your heartbeat. That's really the only thing they do for me-then again, I drink coffe and usually two to four sodas a day, so an energy drink probably isn't going to do much for me in the energy department.

you probably shouldn't drink energy drinks like redbull amp, etc before activities like football, running soccer etc.  Water throughout the day of, and day before it best, gatorade and powerade afterwards then

....probably because your overweight and can hit people
not because you drank some highly acidix sugar/water mixture

EDIT:  I'm just gonna stop talking to you now
