Well being 300 pounds Red Bulls seem to do nothing for me. I just bought 2 cases of Monster from SAMS Club and it seems to do something but not much. I take pain meds cause of spine problems and can use some extra PEP.

I stray away from caffeine since my doctor told me to. It messes with my body too much.

But I do enjoy an occational Red Bull for the taste.

Monster tastes like

Oh man, I love the taste of Red Bull. Even the smell of it makes me crave a can.

I like Red Bull some. I really like the Full Throttle Fury, in the red can. Others I've tried have been nothing too exciting, have had a couple different Monster varieties, and Rockstar.

But I do NOT feel any more energy or anything when I have them. Not that day, not a day later. 'Course I've never noticed any kick from caffiene before, either.
