Energy Drinks

So I'm looking for an energy drink that doesn't taste bad... any recommendations? It has to be kosher-certified. Don't need anything super strong or intense (not running a marathon or anything). Thanks.

  1. Why are you looking for an energy drink?
    Common ingredients in most energy drinks are caffeine and the sugar.

          Mountain Dew?

          I know when I go on long rides or an all-out century, I'll gin up some flat diet Mountain Dew diluted with some water.

            Mountain dew is an energy drink? I'm thinking more along the lines or red bull or monster...

            1. re: PotatoPuff

              Just about every energy drink's primary ingredient is water and caffeine. Everything else is just basically filler to justify its price. Red Bull and Monster included.

              1. re: ipsedixit

                Mountain Dew would be my preference.

      2. Red Bull Original Energy Drinks are now approved by the cRc

          1. I kind of like energy drinks, particularly during the summer months when a cold fizzy drink can be welcome. I don't drink a lot of them. I used to be partial to the Rockstar energy drink in the white can (sugar free), but also liked the blue Monster energy drink. The Tab energy drink is also not too bad. Old faithful is Red Bull sugar free of course. Stick with the smaller cans if you don't want "intense".
