Wake Up: 13 Drinks With More Caffeine Than a Can of Red Bull


And you thought Red Bull was bad.

It turns out that while a can of the vilified energy drink has 80 milligrams of caffeine — just one-fifth the maximum amount you should have each day, according to the Mayo Clinic — one small cup of Starbucks drip coffee has more than three times that amount.

Regardless of how you get your caffeine, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s a stimulant withsome positive and negative effects.

And the amount of caffeine that’s in various drinks — or even the same drink from a different chain — can vary dramatically.

Here are 13 drinks with more caffeine than a single can of Red Bull:

  1. One Tall Starbucks coffee
  2. A small Dunkin’ Donuts coffee
  3. One 5-hour Energy shot
  4. One 5-hour Energy shot
  5. One can of Rockstar
  6. A Grande Starbucks iced latte
  7. A Tall Starbucks iced coffee
  8. One bottle of Turkey Hill iced tea
  9. A small cup of McDonald’s coffee
  10. One cup of Pacific Chai
  11. A Mountain Dew Kickstart
  12. One cup of Yerba Mate
  13. A bottle of Naked Juice energy smoothie
