Are Rebel Drinks Healthy?

Rebels are energy drinks, in dutch bros available in more than 20 flavors, and the ingredients will decide whether it is healthy or not. As the ingredients are responsible for the carbs, sugar, fat, cholesterol, sodium, and calories.

Warning: Do not go for any drink that has an ingredient that acts as an allergen for you.

So the ingredients that increase all these nutritional facts up to an unhealthy limit make the rebel also unhealthy, moreover, the caffeine amount should also put bad impacts on health if its level is too high.
