An epidemic that would drive nutritionists crazy has hit Soldotna High School, called the Red Bull Special. A deluxe frozen drink that’s filled with sugar and caffeine, it is a teenager’s dream food. As the bell rings each morning, students hustle to grab a seat, their morning pick-me-up in hand. Teens seem to follow their peers when they make decisions, even ones as simple as what to drink.
