The Most Expensive Energy Drinks on the Market Today

Energy drinks have become a popular mode of trying to gain a boost in energy levels during the day, or night. It’s a huge industry today, with the global sales of energy drinks in 2014 reported at $49 billion. With all that we have to do every day, work, kids, school, long commutes and taking care of our homes, it can be exhausting trying to keep up, with just not enough hours in the day to do what all we feel we need to. So, many people have turned to energy drinks to help propel them through the day and power them through their tasks. When energy drinks hit the market years ago, they slowly took off, but once they did, many companies tried their hand at creating the perfect drink that would supply customers with just the right ingredients that would give the them the energy levels they wanted and needed, while still being safe to consume. Energy drinks typically contain a stimulant ingredient, which is most often caffeine, along with other possible ingredients that might include; herbs, amino acids, sweeteners, and they might even be carbonated. There are several popular brands that are well-known to energy drink users and some are considered pretty pricey. Here is a list of the most expensive energy drinks on the market today.

5. 5-Hour Energy – $17.98 (10ct)

5-Hour Energy got its start in 2008, and by 2012, the company had reached an estimated worth of $1 billion. This energy drink really took off quick and quickly became one of the most popular energy drinks on the market. It is also one of the most expensive. Like most energy drinks, it does contain caffeine, and in March of 2011, a Consumer Reports report stated that lab tests on the drink confirmed the content level of caffeine was 207 mg, however, the report didn’t state if the test was conducted on the company’s “original” or “extra strength” level of their drink. Later, in 2012, Forbes magazine had another test conducted and found that original strength had 157 mg of caffeine and the 206 mg. 5-Hour Energy continues to be a high-selling energy drink and it can be found in many different stores, from convenient to grocery, and many more.

Zipfizz is supposed to give you a quick burst of energy for an afternoon pick-me-up, or it can enhance a workout routine. The company claims it will increase your level of energy for 4-6 hours and won’t give you that sudden drop of a sugar crash that many drinks have the potential of doing.

3. RockStar – $36.25 (24ct)

The Las Vegas, NV company claims that their energy drink is different than the rest in the fact that its ingredient combination has been scientifically proven to help those who live very active, and exhausting lives, to speed their recovery. There is a long list of herbs in Rockstar, something many other energy drinks do not include in their recipes. Some of the people they market to who are known to live exhausting lives include, the average housewife, to athletes, to rockstars. Rockstar wanted to be different than other brands in their look, so they went with a different type of can. As opposed to Red Bull’s 8 oz can, Rockstar went with a 16 oz can and markets themselves as “twice the size of Red Bull for the same price.” It is a top contender for being one of the most expensive energy drinks on the market.
