I was at my local 7-11 to buy some energy drinks when I saw that Rockstar had flavors out! Thought not a big fan of sour stuff, I am a huge fan of Rockstar drinks, as those of you who know me are aware of.
The new designs look awesome, they remind me of a trend in Japan where there are a lot of colors that don’t go together in a design, like the green and red, but it makes these drinks really stand out. On the left is bubbleberry and the right is green apple
.This drink came out yellowish in color to my surprise, it tasted like…well if you’ve ever had those sour rainbow bacon strips, it’s like a drink form of that. It tasted quite light which is really misleading since it contains a whopping 260 calories and 240 mg of caffeine. I actually didn’t feel too alert after this, but that’s probably because I’m a caffeine addict and my work has all you can drink free coffee. The taste of this is decent but not the best I’ve had.
A portmanteau of bubble gum and berry (hopefully that and not just bubbles), this drink is the cool color of pink
Unfortunately the taste falls short of this awesome colored drink as it mostly tasted of sugar and not much else. Perhaps I was spoiled by the distinct taste of the Rockstar Juiced line, but this just didn’t cut it for me. I did however experience the artificial optimism that always comes when I have excessive amounts of caffeine. Woot!
This taste is a nice change for those who hate the taste of the original formula for most energy drinks, but why not try Monster’s Rojo tea or Rehab Lemonade tea? They have 25 and 10 calories respectively and taste pretty damn good in my opinion.
The Rockstar god has fallen, perhaps it is time to worship a new god, the Monster god! And add to my collection….
BEHOLD! As a bonus to celebrate Supersours finally appearing in a store near me, I have uploaded a picture showing my entire collection of Rockstar Cans. I am quite proud of it 🙂
