I rarely drink soda. And when I do it's usually a white soda such as 7 Up. I don't drink coffee. I don't drink energy drinks. In fact, I live a rather caffeine-free beverage life.
Sometimes when I buy an energy drink for the can, I feel bad just pouring it down the drain so I'll at least give it a couple of swallows. And I haven't found one yet that I liked. I've tried Red Bull, Monster and a handful of other brands but nothing has hit my fancy.
I picked up a couple of FMF energy drinks last weekend and decided to give them a try at work this week. Afterall, one was fruit punch and the other citrus lemonade. So on Thursday at lunch, I drank the fruit punch. And it was good! Before I had finished the can I already felt like leaving lunch early to get back to work. I even went to my cousin who works with me and said, "I feel like going out and playing you at tennis. I bet I could even beat you!" I'm not sure where that came from, I don't even play tennis!
So now I understand the appeal of these drinks. I was still feeling charged when I got home that evening. I never did experience the crash I was expecting all afternoon. So on Friday I took the citrus lemonade and drank it with lunch. Again, I had a pleasantly active afternoon, completing work in time to leave an hour early!
But alas, I have run out of energy drinks. I have no intention of buying more of those that I liked. But I will continue to try new brands as I buy more cans for my collection. Maybe I'll find some more that are good enough to drink...
