Blech! Remember those energy drinks from CVS that are free for the monthly deals plus BOGO last week? Did anyone try them? I didn't drink any of the ones I got that night because they sounded just nasty. I gave them all to my stepdaughter to take home. Well, I needed something to roll some EB's on so I got another pack of them on a different card. OMG! They are the worst things ever! It's like a diet fruit drink that burns all the way down. I had one yesterday and it didn't do a thing for me. And I just drank the other one thinking that it might taste better since it was cold. Nope. Blech.

IF my hubby drank them all the time they would be a diet aid (he totally spent a long time in a gas station bathroom after drinking one on a long trip!!).

Won't catch me trying one!!

I'm not a fan of energy drinks. I think they all taste funny.

They all remind me of fruit flavored kerosene ... like someone is trying to poison me without me knowing, and failing at it.

I wonder if they are worth trying to find then...... I love a lot of energy drinks. I think that Red Bull rocks. I wonder if I would like them.

Sonja, these taste nothing like Red Bull. I've tried Red Bull and don't mind them. These have a cherry-like flavor with a strong diet aftertaste. And they seriously do burn.

Hmmm, I may have to get them just to see the look on DH's face if I tell him that they are awesome.

Or is that unethical of me? Buying a product that I do not intend to use correctly when there are so many out there with chronic fatigue?

I bought some to roll some EB's that were expiring but haven't tried them. I wonder if I could shake them up and shoot them off like rockets? or would that be unethical?

Maybe I could get so many hits on YouTube that I could go on Leno or something. The woman that did the mom song got to go on Dr. Phil. Hmmm.....maybe there is a use for the energy drinks after all!!! lol
