    I don’t do any of these but when I cut out sugar from my diet I landed on Monster Ultras because unlike most sugar free drinks Monster uses Sucralose which IMO tastes much better than aspartame or anything else

    I hate how sugar free drinks tend to go flatter quicker.

    Idk about other ones but with sf Monster in a can i can leave it sitting around at work for like 3 hours and come back and it’s still relatively cool and not flat.

    It’s so weird that this discourse has started. I was having a discussion w/ a few friends yesterday about everyone’s top 5 Monster flavours & it was hard even getting 5 top tier ones without resorting to an average one lol

    I can’t remember if I had an issue with sugar free Monsters going flat as I’ve barely touched them over the years, I’m speaking more about general sodas, but the “original” Monsters definitely do seem to go flat quicker than normal sugary drinks, which is weird.

    reposting my comment cuz I edited this out of the lil nas x thread so it would make sense:
    I knew a kid in high school was sponsored by Red Bull for BMX biking so they'd give him a few cases of both regular and sugar free red bull each month and he'd bring like 5 to school every day and hand them out so I drank my fair share of the sugar free kind and I have to say as far as fake sugar drinks goes sugar free red bull is decent—cuz I mean the regular already tastes like chemicals anyway lol. Though I did used to enjoy a tequila-grapefruit redbull if I was looking to have a long night.

    Don't drink energy drinks besides a Redbull Zero every once in a while.

    Drink this almost everyday

    I can’t stand coffee to this day, it’s rank to me. Love tea though, as a British should.

    Absolutely, black coffee made well s----s on any energy drink in terms of taste and effects tenfold. What do you use to make yours? I use an aeropress and I've perfected my technique over quarantine lol

    I used to not like black coffee either, but it honestly makes such a huge difference if it's made with freshly ground whole beans and is prepared properly. Cuz comparing your average cup of s-----y drip coffee to well-brewed espresso/aeropress/pour over/etc. is like comparing Steel Reserve malt liquor to a well-made microbrew. It'll get the job done but you're not gonna enjoy drinking it, but there are many high quality options available that gets the job done AND tastes good.

    Since I've lived in GA I pretty much exclusively order beans from Perc Coffee Roasters out of Savannah. Their prices are great and you get free shipping over $25. I put @aquaberryares on and he can vouch for the quality

    There’s some chemical in the beans that reaaaaally bugs me and I have tried but just can’t do it. I feel like my body hates it so it forces me to not be able to stand the taste. It tries the same with alcohol but I power through that until my brain is too weak to do anything about it.

    Weeelll, you are not going to like this but I use a s-----y filter machine that I snagged from my mom and ground coffee, since I have no standards whatsoever and it's the fastest and most convenient way :emoji_sweat_smile:Made the superior black coffee experience I had, when my ex gf and me where still together way better tho. She used whole beans atleast. And of course when I'm visiting a restauraunt or coffee shop I'm using their selection (which is sadly not possible right now).
