There are Two Types of People

There are two types of people in this world, those who drink coffee and those who prefer energy drinks. As for me I prefer energy drinks since I don’t really care too much for coffee. Nor do I like the taste of coffee either. For me I never really got into coffee I don’t know why. I think its probably because i don’t really like the bitterness of it, even after adding all kinds of sugar and sweeteners to it.

I can remember that i’ve always been an energy drink person. My first energy drink i had was when i was 11. At the time I was playing travel baseball so we were constantly traveling all up and down the state and constantly getting up at the crack of dawn to drink 2 hours in order to reach the fields by 7 am just to play by 8 am. In order to wake up and have energy for the games my dad would buy a red bull and i would often share it with him just so i could wake up and get focused for the game. Looking back i realize that wasn’t the smartest idea but as they say hindsight is always 20/20.

Summer Edition Red Bull

Summer time is just around the corner that means the weather is going to be getting hotter and the sun will be shining all day long. In order to prepare for the summer, Red Bull has come out with a few new flavors that really accentuates the summer time feel. The first one that I noticed is their new grapefruit flavored drink. It comes in a pinkish can with the label stating specifically that its for this summer. At first I was hesitant to try it just because it was grapefruit flavored. But when I finally tried it I noticed immediately that it tastes exactly like Squirt soda. It tastes almost dead on like the soda which is a good thing because it easily became my new favorite flavor in energy drink. Continue reading
