12 spoons of sugar that's bad, 200 calories, bad, guarana , tisk tisk.

I'm sure everyone's seen the 5 hour energy commercial. The problem is that if you don't need to run a god damn marathon, all 5 hour energy is going to do for you is make you nervous and sick. But... if you want a really tasty drink that'll give you a quick boost of energy then you're in luck, energy drinks aren't bad for you most of the ingredients are herbal and in comparison to coffee, which has about 120 mg of caffeine per cup and a person usually has 2-4 making that on average 240 mg.  The average energy drink has about 160 mg of caffeine. I would never say that coffee is bad for you, but if you'd like something that doesn't taste like steamed asshole, try an energy drink.

To help you find out which one is best for you, here's an online study of the most popular energy drinks graded on both taste and buzz. You'll notice that Monster (our personal favorite) scored the best average of taste and buzz combination.
