I used to work for 5-hour Energy. Red Bull too. Very similar products but entirely different brands. I’ve got lots of great stories about both.

It’s been a few years since I played in this sandbox, so today I decided to revisit an old friend. Warning: It’s been a long day, and in a strange twist of fate, I could really use one of these right now.

Overall, OK, but these are lacking a punch. Honestly, it’s been a long day and feel like I half-assed this list. I’m tired. Fell asleep while writing it. No joke. Very ironic.

Lessons: Don’t write tired. Especially about energy products

Let’s put this on the “try again later” list. I can do better. This is a little generic. Even so, there are a few decent lines here.

Time: 1 hour, split by an unscheduled nap
