    Need to keep perky during a lengthy gaming seesion? We put ten carbonated, caffeinated energy drinks to the taste test to see which is the best for keeping by your keyboard. Warning: some energy drinks taste like toilets (we're not joking) so read on before ordering a case for your next LAN.

    I would love to see a video of this. Watching peoples faces as they taste. Much of that stuff sounds downright awful.

    Thinking about it, I have never tasted a good energy drink. They all taste like chemical waste.



    Oh, and you forgot to link to this thread in the article.

    all the super markets do their own brand energy drinks now too - like the cheesecake test it's always good to pit the big supermarkets againts one another (btw morrions cheesecake IS the best!)

    I swear I'm the only person that is not affected by caffeine D: Energy drinks just don't work on me. I could drink litres of it and get no buzz, and still fall asleep come 10/11pm.

    Your offices don't seem anywhere near as nice as the old ones.

    let me get this right, you voluntarily gave this man

    More caffeine???? you must be crazy.
    Was this supposed to be a pod cast type thing but the sound lost? just surprised at all the microphones.
    I honestly think that in the UK Redbull is unassailable, so many drinks companies have tried to take their market share and just been left shattered on the roadside, and too many try to use sexually provocative names. Recently a brewing company tried pushing an energy drink from Europe called "orgasm" in the UK flopped unsurprisingly due to not many people wanting to put orgasm juice in their mouths.

    This article also appeared in CustomPC magazine this month. Probably due to the recent merger with the publishing company?

    Most of these drinks (I'm sure) are not even available to buy in the UK (not in shops at least)

    You reviewed the wrong Bawls, Bawls in a can seems to water down the taste, Bawls in the glass bottles are amazing.
