I don't know what I'd do without my Bull. I drink a case a week. Keeps the motor running!!!!


ya you cant buy it here cause of something it has in it thats dangerous to oyu. you can buy cigarettes, but a can of energy drink is outlawed.


So there's a black market for Red Bull. Hmmmmm. }:-)


Crazy as it sounds, yes. It's banned here. They remove the taurine and call it Red Bull, but it's far inferior to American Red Bull.

All my friends smuggle it back when they go to the States.

I had to look Turine up because I didn't know what it was. After looking it up, it seems that it's in a lot of foods, beef for instance. What is it about Turine that it's illegal in Canada?

Dunno. But the US version has Taurine and the Canadian version doesn't, as far as I know. Not sure why. And as far as I know that's the only difference. Then again all my drunken friends could be wrong :-D

Funny how I've actually heard that ketchup tastes differently before, I've been rather curious lately to get my hands on some Canadian ketchup.

Our ketchup is definately suprior to you watery, vinegar crap. Heinz is the only way to go.

Hey... I want to hear the dumb American jokes. God knows we've been taking our shots at our neighbors to the north for a while now...
