Default Energy Drinks In Spain?

Hi,

What good cheap energy drinks are there in Spain (except Red Bull as its expensive)? that can be bought at cash & carrys?

Also our villa is in Calpe near the Solymar so if someone can recommend a cash and carry to get the energy drink from will be food.

Thanks

EDIT: also do you know how much they are at a cash n carry per can and per box?

Burn does the trick. Top brands are always expensive anyway.

I've just had a look on the Mercadona website - a mailine supermarket though, not a cash & carry

Burn is 69c a 250cc = 2.76 a litre

own brand is 1.98 for a 6 pack equivalent to 1500cc = 1.32 a litre

On Limit - 55c a 250cc can = 2.20 a litre

Red bull - 3.95 a 4 x 250cc pack = 3.95 a litre


i actually can't think of many cash & carries - there is - or used to be at least - one in Benidorm - & there is one in Jávea called Puga - mo idea if they sell enery drinks though

Maybe best to check the analysis to make a fair comparison e.g.caffeine content and energy values,as I think they vary a bit.

Mas y Mas do one callee Robust which has a very similar taste to Red Bull and is around 39 cents a can. Lidl also do one which isnt too bad

Lidls - very reasonably priced and tastes just fine! I love the taste of energy drinks, my OH thinks I'm mad! But I try not to drink them too much because they must be bad for your health!

Only time I use anything like that is when I have a long hard days driving in front of me.
It helps keep me sharp and alert.
However even a couple of black coffeees or cokes is usually enough to do the trick.
