EVERYONE in Britain is secretly drinking 15-20 cans of cheap, unbranded energy drinks a day, it has been confirmed.
Researchers confirmed that everyone from the ages of 13 to 70 is wildly addicted to the ‘knock off’ drinks and they would not be able to run around like a maniac all day without them.
Teenager Wayne Hayes said, “Being 14 can be pretty laborious sometimes, so I need a huge caffeine boost to get me through the day.
“Usually one in the morning, a few more over lunch, then four or five on the way home from school. Then one with my tea and a couple before bed.”
Office worker Mary Fisher said: “Several cups of strong coffee a day just wasn’t enough caffeine for me so the extra half-dozen cans of energy drink as well is really giving me that extra kick that I need.
“Most nights I fall asleep about five o’clock in the morning. I suppose I’m just quite an energetic person.”
The energy drinks are even being consumed by cash-conscious pensioners. Roy Hobbs said: “35p would have been cheap when I was a kid and I’m nearly 100 years old now – thanks to regular exercise, not smoking and drinking lots of unbranded energy drinks.”
