    Why is this so expensive? It was $2.99 for a medium can. I went into the store this morning with $2.50 and though it might be enough. One time where all I had was $2.50. I had to settle for an Amp instead, ugh.

    Ha, I don't drink them as much as I used to but I really wanted a Red Bull this morning.

    I think with Redbull getting more popular (F1 etc) the price was always going to go up. Can't say i've tried it though.

    it might have just been the store you bought it at. i'm not sure how much they normally sell for over here since I never pay attention to those but I know prices vary amongst stores.

    That is pretty expensive, although I don't really drink energy drinks so I've never tried Red Bull.

    I'm sorry but you got an Amp instead of a Red Bull and you're upset?

    I'm baffled. Amp is glorious. It comes in Code Red and Lemonade for Christ's sake!

    Red Bull is what's up. It is a bit obnoxious that it's so much more expensive than the other stuff though. Bawls is also good for those that can get their hands on it.

    I have a relatively sensitive constitution, and every time I drink a can of Red Bull, I'm flat sick in a few days. It's happened four times. Coincidence? Hrm...

    I always preferred Lo-Carb monster or Absolutely Zero Monster, more bang for your buck. Of course Red Bull is still a good mix for drinks.

    Just wondering. Why would anyone drink Red Bull often? If it's an energy boost you are looking for, there are healthier and more effective ways.

    I rarely drink it (a handful of times a year) before a sport event, but that's only because I am given it. It's unbelievably bad for you.
