If they have caffeine, yes.

Caffeine has an effect on brain chemistry, making your brain more susceptible for incoming stimuli, thus more alert.

Personally I think caffeine is overrated.  It is very addictive, and you build up a tolerance to it quickly.  The caffeine in soda, coffee, or tea will give you a quick high, but often leads to a crash.

You would be better off with no caffeine, or choosing rare occasions to indulge.
