Is 5-hr Energy Drink Worth The Price

I get more of a boost from 3 tsp. of instant tea, although the energy drink lasts considerably longer. The tea is much cheaper and has 120 tsps. per jar whereas a 6-pack of 5-hr. Energy Drink is $13. Hell, I pay only $16 for a 30-pack of Schaefer's beer.

"Energy drinks" are mostly sugar and caffeine. Wash down a No-Doz and a multivitamin with a Coke and be ahead of the game financially.

I agree. There are even generic caffeine tablets that are much cheaper than No-Doz. I use them when I am traveling to keep from falling asleep on the road (I'm usually a passenger, so it isn't a safety issue--I just hate nodding off and missing the scenery).

Yeah. How to make money :-)
Curiously enough, chewing gum makes me tense. After a while I notice that my hands are clenched into fists... It's good for making your ears pop when changing elevation (holding your nose while blowing/sucking works better, but is sometimes kind of painful), but that's about it.

If you're looking for something that tastes nasty and wakes you up, why not just cut out the middleman and directly inject caffeine citrate solution? --scott

Energy drinks (artificial ones, not tea and stuff like that) ultimately weaken our bodies' ability to store glycogen in liver and muscles and process those when needed. I prefer to have some sugared tea when i'm down.
