Red Bull is the oldest and leading energy drink in the world. But did you know that Thai Red Bull is authentic?
The little can that “gives you wings” has been powering the Daring Devil to become the world’s largest extreme sports sponsor.
Motocross, snowboard, freestyle, rally to bobsleigh…
Red Bull has proven it supports its target clientele, athletes. The name itself has become synonymous with extreme sports.
Most people think it was invented by an Austrian named Dietrich MateschitzIt. In fact, it was concocted by a Thai named Chaleo Yoovidhy.. Truckers used it to keep their heads up – some early customers even believed it contained natural aphrodisiacs from bull testicles!
Thai Red Bull
Formerly known as Krating Daeng
Kating Daeng was introduced to Thailand in 1976 by Chinese entrepreneur Chaleo Yoovidhya. Krate is a reddish ox, and daeng means red. Easily translated to Red Bull. It was only later that it was westernized by the Austrians to suit European tastes. Sweetened, carbonated and repackaged. A deal between Thailand and Austria has since turned into an energy drink giant.
The Krating Daeng logo is the foundation of its brand, with two charging bulls representing strength, red for perseverance, and a background of the sun symbolizing energy.

The original Thai Red Bull still exists in Thailand today and it’s really powerful! It’s about three times more potent than Red Bull as we know it. It comes in a small glass bottle, about twice the size of a pacifier. It’s not carbonated and tastes very different.
Of course not to eat it all in one sitting, but sip over time to stay alert. Concentrated non-carbonated and critical hit. I made the mistake of drinking half a bottle after my coffee. Within 30 minutes I was out of the woods. His hands were trembling, and the tension was indescribable. I was fine in an hour. learned knowledge.
For the next few days, I used it very little, and whenever I became sluggish, I drank here and there throughout the day.
Overall, I love Thai Red Bull.
After my ignorance and almost getting lost in this stuff, I thought I’d share my warning if you’re in Thailand and need a thrill and want to try something different.
Energy drinks are so popular in Thailand that they are sold in nearly identical bottles at 7-Eleven convenience stores, corner stores and roadside kiosks for about 10 baht (30 cents) each. Their ads target low-wage workers who work long hours, including taxi, tuk-tuk, truck and bus drivers, and construction workers.
If you want to try it yourself, you can also buy it on Amazon so you don’t have to travel all the way to Thailand to fix the problem.
