If I am not drinking an energy drink, I usually drink an Iced Tea, Mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, or Coke. In that order.

I seem to get plenty of caffein "pick me up" from a couple of cans of Pepsi,
Mountain Dew and or Dr Pepper.

Squirt citrus power at walmart. If you have not tried it you should. It is sold in 12 packs but is really more of an energy drink mega value for the price

Mountain dew or Vault are my 2 regular soda favorites followed by dr pepper

Isn't that the idea behind, Jolt and Vault and MDX? I am not sure caffeine alone is enough to affect me. I seem to have the most noticeable reaction to higher levels of amino acids like tyrosine and carnetiine.

What about the Pepsi Max?
Also the makers of Wired Energy Drinks have also come out with Wired Energy Soda's. I have tried a couple flavors and they are pretty good... I don't think they have them listed on their website yet.

I think I'm the only person on this board who likes the Howling Monkey Cola Energy Drink. It is annoyingly hard to find in Chicago, however. I'll find it one store, and it'll be gone the next week. Other than that, Coke Zero does me well when I want a caffeinated soda.

I used to drink the hell out of Starbucks' "Italian Roast" Iced Coffee, but they've discontinued it to hype their coffee energy drinks... which I'm less excited about. I'll buy the Caribou stuff when it's on sale. The Korean grocery stores carry a cheap iced coffee called, "Let's Be" which isn't too horrible. That one tends to scratch my asian canned iced coffee itch when I get it.
