Loofa

Pro

it doesn't taste like metal acid like the majority of other flavors do, but it still has the capabillity of making you want to run around in circles for hours.
Kleptin

Con

I actually prefer tea and coffee for several reasons.

First, the energy you get from tea and coffee is basically the same as in any of these energy drinks, but less. Like you said, energy drinks make you want to run around in circles, but tea and coffee keep you awake and alert. I find this to be useful for studying or any activity where you have to stay in one place. Energy drinks can make you really jittery and you may find it hard to concentrate.

Second, tea and coffee is much more affordable, provided you don't go to Starbucks. Either are available anywhere you can find energy drinks, and costs about half the price.

Third, when working in an office setting, it is perfectly normal to be seen drinking tea or coffee, but it may be a bit unprofessional to have cans of Monster on your desk.

Lastly, the essential ingredient for any energy drink is caffeine. Caffeine, aside from being a stimulant, is also a diuretic. Having too much caffeine in your system will make you need to urinate very, very frequently. Thus, I believe moderation is the key. Tea and coffee give you just enough, whereas energy drinks like Monster may give you *too* much.

I think what Loofa means by energy drinks is the sodas the contain large amounts of caffeine such as Monster, Red Bull, Rockstar and Nerd.

I'm American, so by "soda", I mean "carbonated, flavored beverage such as Coca Cola or Pepsi". You may call it "pop", I don't know.

Either way, the majority of those drinks also contain caffeine.

Sprite is decaf. Lots of soda comes decaf. Made of the same flavorings as energy drinks.

Decaf tea or decaf coffee wouldn't be energy drinks then.

Kleptin
Yes you do.

It's called "soda".

you can have decaf coffe/tea but you cant have decaf energy drinks.

But they're drinks that provide energy...

The energy that monster provides comes from caffeine. Same as tea and coffee.

COFFEE AND/OR TEA ARE NOT ENERGY DRINKS AND CANNOT BE CLASSIFIED AS SUCH.

@BlackNite

Oh, sorry about that. I left something important out of the debate x.x

I define Tea and Coffee as "energy drinks" as well.

Sorry folks.

Im sorry i had to vote for "loofa" for the mere fact that "kleptin" didnt keep it within the realm of the debate and started talking about alternatives. If i had been in this debate it would have been far more intresting, because personally, monster is not the best energy drink, and that was the case at hand which "kleptin" ignored. sorry
