"Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns!" ~ The Breakfast Club, 1985.
Heidi, her MSG and PA enjoy a Red Bull after a long day in the sand box.
"It completely removes the sand from my mouth, " says Heidi, " and gives me the energy to get through another gruelling day. It keeps my mind working and my body moving!" MSG had no comment and PA had finished her fifth can hours ago.
Red Bull is an Austrian carbonated soft drink sold as an energy drink to combat mental and physical fatigue. Each serving contains about 27 grams of sugar, 1000 mg of taurine, 600 mg of glucuronolactone, B-complex vitamins and 80 mg of caffeine. The caffeine in one serving is a little less than that found in an average cup of coffee and twice as much as found in a can of Coke.
A sugar-free version is available, but Heidi wouldn't lower herself to drink that.
Almost 1 billion of the cans were sold in 2000 in over 100 countries, 260 million of them in the UK. In 2003, almost 2 billion cans were sold in over 120 countries.
Apparently, you can get Red Bull in Afghanistan.
