Energy drink survey - Round Three

Round three - the stragglers. I found another place near where I work which has a variety of energy drinks, so I sampled the rest.

You might want to check out what the heck I'm drinking.

Jolt Cola

Bottle: 340ml/$2.50
Recommended dosage: None given
Active Ingredients: Caffeine
Taste: like a sweet-ish cola, similar to Dirty Dog cola
Caffeine content: not given, just says "Twice the caffeine"...

Before I found it, I originally thought it was made by the Coca Cola company, but apparently not. Other than the caffeine, there's not much other stimulatey stuff in it.

Red Eye Plus

Bottle: 330ml/$2.95
Recommended dosage: 1 bottle per day
Active Ingredients: Taurine, Vitamins (C, B2, niacin B3, pantothenic acid B5, vitamin B6, B12), Calcium, Guarana extract, Inosine, ginsing extract, folic acid
Taste: Unlike Red Eye Gold, this tastes somewhat candy-ish
Caffeine content per can: 2mg per 100ml

Another product from the same people who brought us Red Eye Gold, but apparently this one had a lot less caffeine in it.

Bull Rush

Bottle: 500ml/$2.75
Recommended dosage: 3 cans
Ingredients: Taurine, La Pacho, caffeine, Inosital, Vitamins (Niacin, Pantothenic acid, B6, B12) Glucuronolactone
Taste: Mildly bitter
Caffeine content per can: 160mg (Weeeeeee!)

La Pacho - "Used as a medicine by Brazilian Indians for centuries, LaPacho is the inner bark of the Pau D'arco tree." This page I found on the web makes interesting reading as to what the heck this is, including that it reputedly cures cancer, alleviates arthritis, and various other things. Crikey.

Handy Information

For a while, I was drinking "Black Stallion" cause I liked the flavour, and it was relatively cheap, however local supplies seem to have dried up...
I've been drinking V and Dirty Dog (I rather like the Desert Dust flavour) in order to keep awake at work after having to stay up til midnight to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Ta, TV3...

It should also be noted these products have warnings about not drinking them if you are sensitive to caffeine.
