List of the best energy drinks, open to public voting. Taste, potency, duration and quality of ingredients are taken into consideration for this list. Does the best energy drink have to taste good? Is it okay if it has that sickly sweet energy drink taste as long as it does its job? Is potency more important than duration? What about the crash factor? WIth so many good energy drinks on the market (and so many gross ones, too) it can be overwhelming to decide which one to try. 

Energy drinks are an active subset of the soft drink industry but, unlike soft drinks, energy drinks are usually consumed with the goal of perking up (ie, you wouldn't drink an energy drink with dinner). Energy drinks usually contain large amounts of caffeine, B vitamins, and herbs. Other commonly used ingredients are carbonated water, guarana, yerba mate, acai, taurine, ginseng, maltodestrin, inositol, carnitine, creatine and ginko bilobia. 

Since most people use energy drinks for the specific purpose of energizing themselves, the most popular energy drinks use safe ingredients that do not make the consumer crash after they wear off. Use this list of energy drinks to discover new favorites and give old ones another try.
