The Proof is in the Pudding, Or in This Case, The Energy Drink

After independent studies were conducted on the energy drink Celsius, it was confirmed that no, this energy drink would not be cause for you to fail a drug test at work.  The website also stated that:

"Members of the VERIFY team purchased four cans of Celsius and tested them for drugs following similar steps shown in the viral TikTok videos.  We poured two different flavors of Celsius – Tropical Vibe and Arctic Vibe – into the sample containers provided in the kit and waited for the results.

So, no, you won't be busted for drinking an energy drink at your workplace if you have to submit to a drug test.
