Caffiend: Vegasfuel

The latest in a line of cheap, super-sugary energy drinks, Vegasfuel provides a quick kick and a bit of dehydration. The packaging includes a tag line that says, "Put a little Vegas in you," and the effects Vegasfuel are a lot like its namesake city -- a quick sensory rush, followed by a crash and fatigue.

According to the label, there's 142 mg of caffeine in a 16 ounce can of Vegasfuel, and a whopping 50 grams of sugar, plus some smaller amounts of B vitamins. The sugar feels like the most dominant ingredient, and permeates the taste of the drink. We imagine the flavor is something similar to Kool-Aid with three times the amount of recommended sugar, or maybe a carbonated cherry cough syrup for kids.

Either way, Vegasfuel is not the best-tasting drink, and the sugar crash is stronger than the energy rush.
