Drinks with caffeine other than coffee

Postby George » 30 Mar 2011, 21:45

When I was a teenager and in my early twenties, I loved energy drinks. I drank coffee in the morning, but if I was tired in the afternoon, I loved a good energy drink. As I'm getting older, the appeal is totally gone. I don't totally understand it. I guess I just prefer the taste of coffee now, and it almost has a smoother energy buzz, if that makes sense. Also, with all the other stuff they put in those other drinks, I have to figure coffee is healthier, which is more of a concern to me these days.

Well, I used to love drinking something harder than coffee and tea too, but as they say, people tend to get wiser with years (tough some not ;) ) and so did I.

Paul77, I think you summed it up nicely. I can hardly believe it, but maybe I actually did get wiser with years. I never thought it would happen, but I'm sure my stomach appreciates it. I think it was the combination of that and the overly jittery buzz that made me switch to the better, more natural drink that is coffee.

I've never tried energy drinks or anything like that, even in college when I probably could have used them. I was always afraid I'd give myself a heart attack or something. :(( I'm glad you stopped! I don't think energy drinks are very healthy, not at all.

I don't drink energy drinks either. I'm not a fan of the taste. It's like there's a tinge of medicine in it...Maybe the energy drink brand that I tasted was a bad one. :)) I think energy drinks contain a lot of caffeine and sugar, so that's another reason why these drinks are not my favorite.

I am with you in this. I never once tried any energy drink after my first taste. I do not know if it is do with the taste or something but I never fancied them from the very beginning.
