Amazing! So refreshing and with a decent hit of caffeine (even if they do call it Coffeine – Caffeine anhydrous from coffee bean. It’s lightly carbonated and fresh and fruity.
I’m not a fan of cranberry usually, I find it quite bitter. But, this cranberry and raspberry drink is very moreish. It’s lightly carbonated fruity water with a splattering of caffeine. Actually, it’s not caffeine, it’s Coffeine (Caffeine anhydrous from coffee bean) – with a big trademark symbol after it. This is certainly an interesting take on fancy bottled water, but if you want the best flavour then go for the Lemon and Lime one.
Usually, I pick up a can of generic looking energy drink, take a sip, and immediately classify it as a ‘clone’. This drink is different – it’s got the expected medicated taste but it’s not a clone. There’s a very slightly aniseed taste to it, but it’s sweet and satisfying! It’s also quite low in calories considering it’s the full-fat version.
Amazing! It’s like a raspberry ice pop but low calorie. The flavour is slightly muted, which is initially disappointing but by the time you get to the end of the can you’re grateful for. It prevents it from being too sickly and actually makes it quite refreshing.
This is the third variety of Reign that I have discovered so far. Sour Apple is refreshing and not very sour at all. It’s fruity and gets the balance just right, without being sickly at all even after drinking a whole large can of it.
A great big sugary hit of Monster’s tropical blend… they have a lot of tropical blends and this one is particularly sweet but not synthetic. It’s genuinely quite fruity!
It looks healthy, it tastes a bit healthy. It’s part of a range of other ‘Get More Vits’ products, with this one being the caffeinated product. It’s following the current fad for proteining (??) up energy drinks, and I’m not a fan of that… it seems a bit unnecessary to me! Anyway, this is otherwise just a bit of a bland tropical drink but low in calories.
Well, you can write it in Spanish if you like, but it’s still a tropical/passion fruit drink. Yes it’s fruity, yes it’s very sweet, but it’s really quite a summery drink and odd to find in the depths of a British Winter. Given the many, many, MANY other tropical style Rockstar drinks I’ve discovered over the years, I’m really not sure what distinguishes this particular one from any of the others… perhaps it’s just a marketing thing?
Another addition to the Monster Ultra range, this time ‘green’ flavour… whatever that might be! It’s always a bit of a mystery trying new Monster flavours because they rarely mention anything on the can itself, instead opting for a more cryptic paragraph of some far-fetched scenario. In this case, it’s posing a question of “what is paradise?” along with a few suggested answers. Well, it turns out green tastes like a citrus/melon flavoured drink, so I’m going to mark this as melon. It’s refreshing and a very smooth drink with a pleasant flavour.
