    Hot coffee is as far as I go for energy drink and warming up.

    I see a whole bunch of young'ens drinking 'monsters, etc.' but that's just not for me. It sounds like a good idea though.........

    A flask of Scotch usually works for me, but I'd certainly try it.

    With a catchy name/labeling and promotions I'm sure it could be successfully marketed, especially to the younger crowd. As an "old fart" I save my energy for better things! LOL

    does it generate heat in your stomach? or just make you "feel" warmer

    I can't answer unless I knew what was in it.
    And you can't tell me what is in it...without telling the world - so I'll wait until you get it on the store shelf and then I'll decide.

    I guess I'm an old fart now, but I just don't "get" the whole energy drink craze. A bunch of my troops use them, but personally I just stick to coffee.

    I don't drink energy drinks much at home, but on deployment, I drink them a lot. Just something to help keep you going when you're working 14+ hour days, running on 4 hours of sleep, etc. Winter deployment this time, and I'd probably drink an energy drink that makes me feel warmer, as long as its an all over warmness. Hard to work on aircraft when you're numb from cold.

    I know what you mean. I did aircraft maintenance in the AF. Squeezing into areas where you can't wear a jacket, can't wear gloves because you can't feel what your doing and the temperature is below zero. But it was fun and I miss it at times. I must be a sick puppy! LOL

    I actually enjoy Winter and want to experience all of it, since it is the only time of year I am comfortable in Texas.

    Although I bet my Wife would love it since she can get goose bumps in the Summer.

    I don't understand the energy drink fad, either. I have tried a few, out of curiosity, and can't get past the taste. Yuck!! Give me some black coffee and I'm good. I think it would probably do well, if you marketed it to <= GenXers.

    Good luck.

    Been done.

    It's coffee.

    And the chemical's technical name is "brandy".

    I'm all for adding chemicals to my body...without research of course! I just want to avoid those energy drinks that may cause instant death. For me, as of now.....cappuccino is some really good stuff. I was on AMP for a long time. I liked the taste, and was foreman over two large commercial jobs for a contractor and they did me good for what I needed at the time. (about two years of it). I'm here to say, I weaned myself off the stuff....it's saved me about $6 a day, and an unnecessary dependency. Energy drinks-------what has happened where we think we need them? Is it advertising at it's finest? Do they actually do you any good? Remember....you'll have to come down some time, and crashing sucks.
