Mine used to be Monster Java Chai Hai, but I don't see them around anymore.

Now? Eh, anything but Red Bull.

Whatever is amongst the $2.50 for 2 selection at Speedway. I'm not picky, but if see something haven't had before, I'll try it.
Although ones I didn't like were the Rockstar: Cola & Nos: Cherry flavor. Yuck.

I actually had Redbull for first time last month. Highly unimpressed. Good to see I wasn't missing anything.

Hard to pick just one.

EDIT:
It's definitely SLAP (Crisp Apple flavor). Great flavor, definitely enough caffeine/kick, minimal crash.

I like Monster (Mixxd, Khaos, Java), NOS (grape or regular), Rockstar Recovery (Lemonade), Full Throttle, and Xenergy.
While I hate Starbucks coffee at Starbucks, their Doubleshot energy drink is also good.

I hate Red Bull. They are only successful because they were the first big energy drink company internationally.

Yea, I'm not picky either. I check out BigLots often for energy drinks because they'll have cases and cases of random obscure drinks at anywhere from 50 to 75 cents a can. Some are good, some not.

Haven't had much luck at BigLots lately, though.

Yea. I'm a fan of lemonade flavors. The Monster one I tried recently, reminded me of a Brisk: Iced Tea Lemonade. Good stuff.

I rarely go into BigLots but I'll have to keep in mind to look there some time.

Coolah was awesome, to me it tasted almost exactly like a Squirt. I don't think it's made any more. If I could find it I'd buy a case :(

I like Monster varieties.

1. Monster Low-Carb or Monster Absolutely Zero.

2. Best tasting? Probably Monster Khaos (70% juice)

3. Monster Import and Import Light are pretty good.

4. Love the (countless) coffee varieties too.

Red Bull is OK.

Rock Star is NASTY.

Amp because it tastes like Mountain Dew

Rockstar Recovery is great also. Tastes like lemonade.

Remembered 2 more that I like, but usually don't see in stores:
Amp (Lemonade)
and

SLAP (Crisp Apple). I need to find a place to buy this, it's really good but I haven't had one in ages.
If anyone knows where to get this, let me know. I think this is probably my favorite energy drink.

Monster Java or whatever Amp flavor is available. Also, the sugar free version of Monster is very good and I'll drink it over regular Monster. Although, I admit it's kind of silly, but I don't drink Rockstar since it's owned by the family of a right wing talk show host.

Rockstar Juice... either mango or guava...
I wish there was a non-caffeinated beverage that tasted that good.
