If they have caffeine, yes.

Caffeine has an effect on brain chemistry, making your brain more susceptible for incoming stimuli, thus more alert.
Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
Most poems rhyme,
but this one doesn't

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.
