Red Bull comes in at #2 on thebestenergydrink.org Top 10 List. Red Bull has become a worldwide cult icon. It’s flavor is unique among every drinks. However, many of the “Johnny Come Latelies” have tried to duplicate it’s taste but none have succeeded.
More than just an energy drink, Red Bull is quite popular in the bar & club scene around the world. Red Bull and vodka goes by many different names such as: VaRB, VRB, VKRB, RBV, Speedball, Vod-Bull, Vodka Red, Echo and of course Red Bull n Vodka. Probably the reason it is so popular (besides giving you wings) is Red Bull on its own just makes you feel good. Add alcohol to it, (that you can’t taste), and you have quite a combination.
Everybody knows Red Bull gives you wings, but, it’s the caffeine, taurine, B vitamins, sucrose & glucose that make you feel like you can fly.
Red Bull’s first advertisement appeared in Austria on April 17, 1987 and translates to “so awesome that the polka dots will fly off your tie!” Red Bull might be more famous for its iconic advertising than it is as an energy drink.
