Coca Cola (Coke)

The world’s most famous energy drink! You don’t need a description of this one, unless you live in a remote cave (and if you do, how have you got internet?)

Plenty of sugar, a little caffeine (in the context of energy drinks) and no extract of coca leaves (for about the last 60 years – Wikipedia can tell you more)

Not exactly a thirst quencher, unless over ice and very cold, but it tastes good, and billions of litres are consumed every year. Works great against a hangover, I find.

Only 5 ingredients on the label if you include caffeine under the ‘natural flavourings’, but no mention of how much caffeine.

I tend to get a bit of a crash after a short while, but nothing major.
