Ever notice... when you open a monster drink, this big "BPFFT" happens... and this vapor comes out like you're about to drink something out of a laboratory experiment?

And for a split moment... you have to convince yourself that what you're about to drink.... is safe...


*cheers!*

I think that just has too do with the pressure of the carbination. But I would still doubt Monster is 'safe' too drink

Monster.. I can tolerate one sip.. the best thing about it is when my son opens one in the car it makes a great car freshener :thumbsup: The car smells nice for days. I don't know how anyone can tolerate energy drinks. I will stick by my coffee.

Usually me, but I sneak in some real coffee time to time when the wife isn't around

My age and after colon problems, this ends up being your preferred drink :thumbsup:

Metamucil is simply fiber with awful fake flavors added. Eat fiber rich foods instead such as: apples, lots of greens, whole grain products, and beets.

Drank Redbull then Monster for awhile, switched to Lo-Carb Monster (less sugar), tried all the No Fears when I switched which store i stopped at in the morning. Got sick and was told to cut that stuff out... so now its Ocean Spray's Cran-Energy (since sawbones told me to drink Cranberry juice to reduce the likelihood of having the same issue twice). i hate Cranberries.

Yeah I noticed the mist from a lot of brands but the Monster "Big Boys" with twist on caps do it the worst.

No pills for me. The bad thing is I used to like cranberry juice before i was told to drink it daily, after the first few weeks it got old. I drink 8+ cups of coffee a day on top of whatever else i drink.
