    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

      16 oz. Amp has been out here in the San Francisco market for a while now, I think since at least last spring. Its called "Tall Boy"

        I think 8oz is just to small, and for the price, a waste of money. I dont understand how Red Bull is still in buisiness after Rockstar and Monster have come along and doubled the size for the same price. It seems to me like people are just not willing to try something new which is why they continue to support Red Bull. IMO if you really need energy bad enough to buy a drink, you should at least get something worth the money. Some people say they are too big, and that may be the case for some people, but nobody i know has any problem with downing a 16oz in a short amount of time. Maybe i just live in a really thirsty city, but i think that most people can handle a measly 16oz.

          IMO....Red Bull has a certain snob appeal. I mean that some not all people drink Red Bull because in part it is a social statement. A statement that says, I can afford it,it looks cool in my hand and others will notice me for drinking it.

          I do realize there is a core group of energy drinkers like yourself. I'm just speaking about the party scene at bars and social events. Most of those people probably think Red Bull was named after the Chicago Bull's basket ball team. LOL

            Its all about the quality of ingrediants. Yeah you get overall more from the 16 oz cans, but if its at a much lower % of extract, then what good does that do? I dont think Rockstar and Monster and all them double their quantity, sell for less, and take a much less proffit in doing so. There are 2 things that really come down to the point that I try to stress. What really works. And what tastes good to you. You are talking about energy drinks, not tap water. You are spending $2 if its for an 8oz. 16oz. 24 oz what ever. If you have to buy 2 16 oz. drinks for the same effect as 2 8oz drinks, then whats the point. But secondly, its about what tastes good to you. We all know if you get some sleep and exercise, you would be much better off than needed energy drinks. Why go to Nations or some burger chain when you can get a burger at McD's for .59 cents? Tastes and quality. Its about what you want and when you want it.

              Sorry Ron, I have to disagree with you slighty. I think Rockstar and Monster probably make the same profit from a single can as does Red Bull. Yes 16 oz energy drinks have twice as much product with twice the buzz as Red Bull which does cost more, but they are both produced in the states. So shipping cost is minimal compared to Red Bull who produces all their cans in Austria and ships them across the atlantic to the US. How much money do they spend on shipping, while Rockstar and Monster spend that money on more product.

                the new 16oz Amp should do well - i think it will kill the smaller cans in a matter of time - and hopefully we'll see how the new Sobe No Fear Gold does

                  I'm anxious to try No Fear Gold.

                  Hype is soon releasing their X2 product in Canada, and I can't wait for the first samples to hit my door. Hype Gold is a good attempt at the 16oz market from them, but it's a different flavor formulation and is more akin to redbull. X2's going to be Hype Classic, just in a bigger can, im stoked.

                    I think its only about $2 per case. You could be right. But I would like to know what the exact % of extracts they use. I do know that all the companies want to be able to use Red Bulls tourine, but it is protected by Red Bulls trademark or something.

                      I didn't think that Red Bull had their own special "Taurine". But many energy drinks have Taurine (ex. Monster, No Fear, Rockstar, Go Fast, Lost....). I think the Taurine is the same for all energy drinks. No Red Bull employee has ever told me that they have their own trademarked Taurine.

                        I doubt they do,
                        Taurine is found in the body.

                          Taurine is found in the body and animals as well. Many of the energy drinks get their energy drinks from Animal tendons. Red Bull has a pharmacutical grade taurine which was created for them. That is why everybody wants it, more potent and higher grade and easier to obtain.

                            I've heard rumors that in Asia(not sure exactly where) that Red Bull is insanely strong because there are no regulations. And I've also heard it contains actual bull's blood. Sounds kinda weird. Is there any truth to this at all?

                              there's some truth, it's definitely more potent, im not sure it's like... deathly strong, but it's definitely stronger.

                                Ive had the Asian versions of energy drinks and they are more potent. More syrupy than the European drinks, and more Taurine and Caffiene, besides that, I am not sure what else they may contain.
