Default Healthy energy drinks that actually work?

Hey guys. I have read a few energy drink forums, but could not find an answer. What are some "healthier" energy drinks that really work? Coffee isn't working with me anymore. My main concern with regular energy drinks tend to just get you hyper off of the sugar.

Default Energy Drinks: The Construction Worker Staple

I have been drinking Rock Star original for ten years, so God help me if someone discovers something in it that causes (fill in the blank). And I'm not a light drinker. The energy drink in any variety is everywhere on jobsites and I down at least two per day. It's more than just a boost for me, I actually enjoy the flavor, ironically I can't drink any other kind of soda, diet or otherwise, they are just too sweet for me. These are loaded with sugar so go figure.

Which is your drink of choice?

Default Do You Buy Flavored Water?

I see huge racks of flavored water at the supermarket, Pepsi, Coke and generic products, lemonade, tea drinks, energy drinks, etc. Some of them have caffeine, most are sweetened with sugar or aspartame, but all of them are just water with flavoring.

I make my own flavored water. I keep a 2 qt. pitcher in the fridge with a little reconstituted lemon juice in it, no sugar. I go through half a gallon a day, and also drink coffee, which is another kind of flavored water. When traveling, ice water is all I need as long as the local water supply is drinkable.

Judging from shelf space, soft drinks are a huge drain on household budgets. Markets wouldn't give them a whole aisle if they weren't flying off the shelf. Is flavored water a big part of your diet?

Carbonated in cans - yes, lime or lemon. From Aldi... They are not sweet, just have citrus taste.

Maybe once a month I will treat myself to something like that, but I refuse to consume sucralose or aspartame. I like Dasani's lime and raspberry flavored carbonated water. Sometimes I'll grab one in the checkout aisle when I'm doing my weekly grocery shopping. I am trying to save money at the moment so I am avoiding such frivolous purchases.

I sometimes get coupons for a free 6 pack, which I avail of. I do not buy them often. I make lemon water at home, or ice tea, using teabags.

I am hooked on Bubly lately. It’s a canned Pepsi product. Some flavored sparkling water tastes harsh to me, but I like Bubly.
