And you thought Red Bull was bad.

It turns out that while a can of the vilified energy drink has 80 milligrams of caffeine – just one-fifth the maximum amount you should have each day, according to the Mayo Clinic – one small cup of Starbucks drip coffee has more than three times that amount.

Regardless of how you get your caffeine, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s a stimulant with some positive and negative effects.

And the amount of caffeine that’s in various drinks – or even the same drink from a different chain – can vary dramatically.

Here are 13 drinks with more caffeine than a single can of Red Bull:
