    Coffee. Sugar is evil!  :-)
    Energy drinks have enough sugar to choke a horse.  Sooo.... coffee.

    Coffee hands down. I nearly drink it exclusively. Only on a rare occasion will you catch me with anything other. Of course I'm hounded for this addiction but I can think of worse things.

    Honestly, I wouldn't drink an energy drink even if my coffee was taken away. It's funny because though I'm sure caffeine has it's grip on me, I don't drink it in other forms even when coffee isn't available...weird...

    Neither. I've never developed a liking for coffee and, to me, energy drinks are just plain nasty. For a caffeine boost, I drink iced tea and occasionally a Pepsi.

    Coffee. I can drink that like water. It's my addiction. Quite literally. I spend a lot of money on coffee. I actually have to say, in some ways its right there with chocolate for me.
    I hate energy drinks. Not only because they taste horrible. They hurt my stomach. I have always had a problem with them.

    coffee for me. I've tried Red Bull energy drink once and thought it was nasty, it tasted like carbonated whizz.

    Coffee for sure. I can control what sort of sweetener or cream I put into coffee (black coffee is actually good for you). Whereas energy drinks have no redeeming ingredients. I drank a few of those in college and vowed never to do it again.

    BOTH. I can't drink coffee- my heart beat race like a demon, energy drinks will make my stomach bloat,
