Consumer Reports reviews energy drinks

The always fantastic magazine Consumer Reports (really, it has great info and reviews!) published a little article comparing some of the popular energy drinks out there.

Especially useful is the chart telling you how much caffeine is in each energy drink – since the cans rarely display that info. The vast majority of energy drinks apparently have 75-80 mg of caffeine per 8 fluid ounces (for comparison’s sake, a cup of coffee has 100 mg) – including Red Bull, meaning that paying the same price or more for that smaller can isn’t actually going to help you stay up any later.

    I’m totally tempted, but caffeine and I don’t get along too well. Holly or Adam might take you up on that, though.

    This reminds me – I’ve recently come into possession of a small quantity of “Jackie Chan’s XGT Green Tea Energy Drink Mix,” which I’ll have to make available to a Wesleying staff member for review. Any takers?
