Yes, it is.

However, some people like the marketing and packaging thing. I was in wallymart and saw some of that red-whatever stuff. Checked the ingredients and was wholly unimpressed. Maybe it tastes good ... maybe it doesn't.

It was sure expensive, relatively.

My advice: go to any health-food store or bodybuilding store. Or order online. 100 tabs of 200mg synthetic caffeine is ~ 10 bucks or less. 200mg being a cup and a half of strong coffee or so. Drink with lots of water. You're done.

No extra additives. No sugar. No calories. Cool factor? Okay, maybe less. However, if I saw someone chugging a trendy caffeine drink i'd just shake my head and have an internal laugh.

But hey, if you want to spend for a fancy aluminum can with interesting graphics ... be my guest! :razz:
He .... looka lika MAN!
I tell you every ting!
If you haven't figured it out yet ... i'm not a female. Have you ever watched MADtv?

Yeah, the drinks seem pretty expensive.

I like the mints because I like the cafeine (duh!!) and like anything that is minty.
I also paid $1 for each tin last year- so am happy overall.
If they were more than $3 I doubt I'd buy them.

was just in compusmart and they sell some brand of cafeinated mints there near the cash.
the cost 7$ though- I would never pay that much.

as the other poster said, caffeine pills are just as good.

you can buy "Wake ups"? the ones w the rooster on the package at Shoppers! should only be a couple dollars.

or if u have a cold/sinus problems- alot of decongetants contain caffeine in them also (the daytime ones that is- every time i use then I can't sleep well)
