So you're saying I can get all my daily sugar needs from one convenient source that also has links to the club? Brilliant.

So basically very much similar to Red Bull and other UK sold energy drinks?

Yes. But you aren't allowed any other sugar at all. Try it.

What which brand? I'm struggling to understand the point you're trying to make here.

That's not quite right, the recommended total daily maximum intake of sugar for an 'average' adult is 90g (120g for men under the old system).

These drinks contain added sugars of course though, with no additional health benefits like from natural sugars found in fruit and the such, so 37.5g is more around what your limit should be for added sugar rather than total.

Energy drinks are pretty bad for you obviously for a bunch of reasons, especially if drunk regularly, but I'd still much rather see a product like this advertised on our shirts than a gambling or pay day loan company.

Isn't that about right for an energy drink though, after all you are meant to be more than exercising when you drink them.

BTW is Carabao available in the UK yet?

“Carabao” is an energy drink that was inspired by the fighting spirit of an individual. It is more than a global energy drink, it is the empowerment to accomplish personal goals.

Carabao symbolizes the spirit of individuals who fight for the cause they believe in. Not by force, but with determination, hence the slogan: “ The Fighting Spirit of Carabao”


Let's hope our players chug a couple of cans before they go out onto the field. 8)

Lucozade's market share must be really taking a hammering.

They kind of missed the boat on this new wave of energy drinks. And when I say new I realise Red BuLOL and their ilk have been around for about quarter of century now, but you know, it's all relative.
