Man Drinks 17 Energy Drinks, Survives

I’m glad I wasn’t the one who had to suffer through 17 servings of this stuff, but this intrepid reporter sucked down all manner of energy drinks to determine what tasted best, what had the best buzz, and which was most “drinkable” (which I guess is slightly different than “taste”).

The results: Moxie Citrus Flavor earned a perfect score on all three metrics… although with Mountain Dew getting a 14 out of 15 (including 5/5 for taste… yeccch), one has to feel that these results may not be applicable to all tasters.

The only real loser: Monster Chai Hai, which our taster couldn’t take more than three sips of.

    What were the first energy drinks popular in the US? Jolt? Mountain Dew? Red Bull? And who was first with alcohol + caffeine? Sparks? What year? Seems like Sparks went into the US market around late 2001.
