I based the poll on the more popular canned energy drinks sold in the US, which is the largest market for canned energy drinks in the world.

Espresso.

Sometimes tea.

The only times I have an energy drink is when I'm making a Jägerbomb.

Another vote for coffee here. No cappuccinos or frappuccinos or lattes or any of that fancy-schmancy stuff. Plain coffee, and I take it black. Like my women.

(Just kidding. I like women of all colors, though I'm partial to blondes.)

93 degrees Celsius? That's damn near boiling. That's lawsuit temperature.

Well China, India and the EU are all larger markets than the US given their population size.

But fine if you want it to be related to energy drinks sold in the US the thread title should really have reflected that.

I'm compelled to vote for Verve! because my stepson is in Vemma's social network marketing pyramid scheme. You should all sign up to be under him in the pyramid. PM for contact info.
I never tried Verve. Is it new ?
I think it is new. I was not aware of the brand before my stepson became involved with it. This article has a dateline of December 9, 2012 and refers to it as a "new energy drink."

Hey, I used to love Jolt. But I had to stop waking up dizzy in truck stop diner parking lots in Wyoming with blood all over me.

That stuff's....strong.

Re: Vote for your favorite energy drink

My vote is for an energy drink that doesn't brand itself as an energy drink.. It's called Eco-drink and it's basically a daily multivitamin in a powder that you mix with water. It comes in a couple of flavors and is really quite good...

I noticed after the first time I drank a 20 oz. bottle that I was quite alert and refreshed. It does have sucralose, which I know some people don't like, but it also has stevia... One packet equals one serving, but I find it so sweet that I usually split the packet between two bottles during the day.

Ecodrink

This. I've never tried it, but I'm curious if anyone here has...

I'm not much into energy drinks. They're mostly disgusting chemical concoctions. About the only one I ever use is Emergen'C, which is more like a fruit punch in taste and has lots of good vitamins without nasty additives.

5-Hour Energy actually does a pretty good job. It's mostly caffeine and B-vitamins. Helps you stay alert without feeling like you just drank a big can of sugar and chemicals.
