      Energy drinks have two things in them that give you energy. One of them is caffeine, which you get in things like tea and coffee and is responsible for that buzz you feel after you’ve drunk them. And the other is a shed load of sugar. Think about when you’re making a cup of tea. If you put sugar in it, how much would you put in? β˜•Two, three teaspoons max? A 500ml can of Monster Energy or Red Bull has almost 14 teaspoons of sugar. Would you put 14 teaspoons of sugar in your drink? πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„πŸ₯„β˜•That would be grim!🀒
