Default 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.

Aren't those things more like credit, so you always end up paying for it
later?

"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).

Chewing gum will keep one alert. And it calms. Mr Wriggley was on to
something.

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?

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.
