I pride myself on the fact that my main drink of choice depends on the day. I mainly drink water or wine. I'm not a coffee drinker.

I am usually that weird one that can get through the day with little or no caffeine. Crazy, huh? Then I was introduced to the Bang Energy Drink.

I never even heard of it until my daughter stopped at a gas station on the way to moving her to the Dallas area. She bought two of them. One for her and one for me to try. I am the first to say that I used to love the Rockstar energy drinks. Mainly for the taste.

I had to stop because it was really wreaking havoc on my body. I would get headaches if I didn't have another one. I would crash hard. Oh and my blood pressure went up dangerously.

Once my daughter introduced me to Bang it was all different. I started noticing them everywhere. Market Street United, Drug Emporium, Toot n Totum. How was I so late to the game?

Now I know energy drinks are not the best for you. I don't drink them all of the time. Only if I didn't get a good night sleep the night before. I have to have the energy to be all bright and cheery on the air. Oh, and to not kill anyone throughout the day.

There are so many different flavors too. I just discovered the Bang Birthday Cake flavor. Yep, that is a thing. Pretty good too.

My daughter uses Bang for her pre-workout. The think I like is there is no sugar. So there is no crash. That is pretty awesome. There are no calories, carbs or fat. So you are not going to gain weight from drinking one.

Plus Bang also helps you with your intake of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, B12, and Niacin. There is a lot of caffeine though.

So even though I would not recommend having one every day. It is something I go to when I just need something to help me up and at it. Plus they have so many great flavors. What do you think of this energy drink? Comment below.
