Jason's Review

If it weren't overpriced and uneventful, would it be a Red Bull product? Like NOS Energy Poweshot, I'm glad to see that most of these $3 catastrophes are collecting dust on service station counters. As if $2 for 8.3oz. of garbage wasn't a reasonably sufficient raping, Red Bull decided to take that formula, make it flat, add some sucralose, give you 1/4 of the quantity and charge you a dollar more. It's like government health care, only better, and it's at your discretion whether you waste billions of dollars on it or not.

Interestingly, this tastes almost like Real Red Bull that someone ruined by taking out some sucrose, and adding some sucralose. Even more interestingly, you can get 5oz. of Asian Red Bull's flavor sensation for $1.50 at many Asian markets, and I think that product is every bit as energizing. Red Bull Energy Shot is a crappy flat, condensed Red Bull (which I think has an unpleasant aftertaste) that has a few B vitamins thrown in for good measure.

I think Red Bull Energy Shot is an insult to the intelligence of anyone not trying to impress their "friends" with their product purchasing trends. For people who are trying to impress their "friends", this energy shot is convenient for putting in your purse and carrying around to pull out as a conversation piece, pretending you drink them all the time. You might also want to follow it up with something about "social awareness", "non-traditional families" and Oprah. Otherwise, just laugh at anyone you see drinking this, and ask them, "Hey, didn't I see you at that place downtown last week drinking Jager Bombs?". This would be a great pickup line, assuming you have little enough self-respect to be seen in public with someone who would drink Jager Bombs.

Guests's Review

3 Dollars for 2 ounces of fluid. Here's the problem right from the get go. To put this into perspective, 1 gallon of Red Bull Energy Shot would cost you $192. If you buy this drink regularly, you should NEVER complain about the cost of gasoline. If you do, you deserve to be beaten about the head with whatever blunt object that happens to be lying around. THIS IS A BAD INVESTMENT.

If you want to know what Red Bull Energy Shot tastes like, go out and buy a normal Red Bull. Open it and let it set out until it's room temperature and flat. This is exactly what Red Bull Energy Shot tastes like, flat, warm Red Bull. It almost seems as though they ran out of carbonated water at the Red Bull plant and decided to go ahead and package it. I wouldn't say it tastes bad by any means, but if you aren't a fan of normal Red Bull, chances are that you will not enjoy this product. It should also be noted that Red Bull Energy Shot tastes far superior to any other energy shot that I've tasted. This shot is thankfully missing the medicinal taste that most shots tend to have.

The energy from Red Bull Energy Shot is pretty reasonable. It doesn't give the face smashing energy of DynaPep so you shouldn't get absolutely wired on it. It's a somewhat subtle boost of energy. I drank one mid-morning and so far I'm not tired and I don't feel like I'm going to crash. As a general rule, energy shots don't do much for me. They are typically bad tasting, either give me no energy or get me completely wired, and are way over priced. Red Bull Energy Shot tastes pretty good and gave me some decent energy. It nails two of my three issues and two out of three ain't bad.

I buy red bull energy shots at big lots for $1 each and much prefer them to actual red bull - both taste and the fact it is far less calories. I would never pay $3 but for $1 these are far better than most generic energy shots.

I bought a case to give them a "shot". Nothing guys. Absolutely no kick whatsoever. The taste is fine, but I drunk 3 of these Red Bull Shots over a 8 hour period and could've fallen asleep. The taste is good though.
My advice, just buy a 8.4oz. Save your money and you'll get more kick than these shots. As far as currency to kick is concerned.

Not sure how this ever caught on. Not a very palatable taste- mixed with alcohol or not. Blue Monster w/Amaretto (The Blob) blows away anything I've ever tried with Red Bull.

I tried Red Bull energy shot today and wasn't really impressed. It was kind of nice that it tasted like regular Red Bull, except there was an unpleasant tinge to it that I couldn't really explain. I don't usually feel much from Red Bull, and the only way this was different was that I felt a little more energized, sooner, but for a shorter time. This is owed to it sharing 80mg of caffeine with 8oz of regular 'Bull.
I'd like this more if it costed less and had more caffeine. That would make the taste tolerable and more worth the money. However, in this case you spend extra money for a drink similar to Red Bull that doesn't taste as good, has 6oz less fluid, and no extra caffeine per serving. It's really not worth it, especially since regular Red Bull is overpriced (even compared to other energy drinks) and still nothing that special.

As with all Red bull products the shot is overpriced, however the taste didn't impress me. It was bland. The energy wasn't bad though. i would say 7-3-1.
