    Question Energy drinks?

    Advertisements
    Have any of you ever tried the 5 hour energy shots? If you have, does it work?
    Or if you've had any kind of energy drinks, Which ones?

    I've never tried the 5 hour energy drinks so I'm curious as to what people say about them too!

    I do drink Red Bull, Monster, Amp, and Enviga though.

    The 5 hour energy shots work ok for me, but if I actually want a drink-drink, I'll get an Amp. I used to think all energy drinks were nasty but Chris got me hooked on Amps hahaha =)

    Amp tastes just like Mt. Dew, I don't know if you like that or not though =)

    I've never noticed a crash before, but I know everyone's body reacts differently to caffeine

    DH likes the 5 hr energy drinks if he knows he only has 5 hrs till he can rest. He uses them to get us that "last push" on a driving trip. Otherwise, his drink of choice is Monster.

    I took no-doz on a road trip once and ended up pulling over every 5 minutes to throw up and had to call 911 and spend the night in some random town in a hospital so I refuse to try anything like that EVER again. I'll drink an Amp if I know I can rest in the next 2 hours but nothing more than one Amp -- ever. I'm a wimp.
