I tried the white Monster because I heard it was the trashiest of the trashy-- it actually wasn't too bad. Fairly light and refreshing. (I used to drink the lo-carb blue Monsters many years ago when I was prone to weird, stupid choices).

i've tried several monsters and they were all nasty to me. i actually used to drink the regular monster every morning driving in to high school but one day i pulled in, took another swig and said out loud to nobody 'holy poo poo this is loving gross', dumped the rest of it out and never drank it again.

Don't think I've ever tried a Rockstar.

imo rockstar is the worst of the worst. i can force down any other energy drink no matter how gross it is, but rockstar straight-up gags me.

Also Monster ultra white and ultra blue are the best.

I mentioned this before but Rockstar is owned by notorious shock jock Michael Savage's son

It's a maga chud drink and company

quote:

Members of the LGBT community have supported a boycott because the company's founder and CEO is the son of controversial radio personality Michael Savage, and because its former CFO, Janet Weiner, is Savage's wife and also CFO of Savage Productions.[14][15] The boycott was motivated by allegations that Savage had made comments perceived to be homophobic, racist, and discriminatory.[16][17][18] In May 2009 San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom returned a $25,000 donation which Rockstar had made to his 2010 re-election campaign.[15][19]

Those MONSTER: Rehab Peach Tea drinks are very nice. They don't make your teeth feel as though they're dissolving and are easy to drink very quickly. I don't drink energy drinks anymore but when I did these were my beverage of choice. The lemonade Rehab tastes like furniture polish though, they're yucky.

Was this any good? I remember being a college kid in Europe without access to a credit card so I couldn't get it imported, but I was always morbidly curious how Steven Seagal juice tasted

I saw this at Walmart for like a buck each, and they loving sucked. The only reason to buy one was for the sheer ridiculousness of buying a loving Steven Seagal energy drink.

And I think the shops in my area have all the Pina Colada Bangs that one guy was having trouble finding. They've always got shitloads of 'em around me. My go-to flavor is the Mexican Cola, which somehow seems to taste like it's got cane sugar in it, even though it claims it doesn't have any sugar in it. Unfortunately, it's a little tougher for me to find. Maybe I'll give the Pina Colada a shot next time.

Man, I used to go way out of my way to pick up Jolts back in the day, but I don't think I've seen them around in years. Kinda

This man lies. I specifically remember drinking this poo poo in Japan and it was really bad. Itís like they concentrated Red Bull by heating it on the stove.

Also, adding that 7-11 on to the list of places to go if I ever visit Thailand. Good looking out!

Also, it was depressing to learn that despite an abundance of 7-11ís across the nation, they donít have Slurpees! Was really hoping theyíd have a red bean or green tea slurped and was super disappointed.

There actually are Slurpee in some Japanese 7-11's.



They used to be somewhat more common but I think they're not very popular since nowadays they're kind of hard to find, I assume they're only sold at locations where people actually buy them since I think the ones near the US military bases have them.

Anyway those Japanese tonics always impress me by how big a range there are, most of them are a few dollars but some of them cost $20+ for a single drink. I did drink one which was like $5 and it definitely gave me a lot of energy so I assume if you buy the expensive ones you'll develop superpowers or something.

I got the blue version (apparently it was "asian experience" flavored) at big lots once. I don't remember exactly what it tasted like cause it was like 10 years ago but I'm pretty sure i finished it so it couldn't have been too bad.
I also got this one at big lots:

Someone mentioned Jolt which made me think of Surge! It's probably been a decade or two since I tasted one, but iirc, it was kind of Mountain Dewy. Not sure how it would compare to the modern energy drinks of today, though.

The best one was really early Relentless, I think it might have been one of the first 'flavoured' energy drinks? Maybe I'm making that up. But anyway, this one:



It was fuckin' awesome. Actually tasted like fruit juice. One day they changed the recipe though, and now it just tastes like metal, rust and chemical castration.

I used to drink one of them with a small bottle of rum before clubbing every Friday while I was at uni, no wonder my whole body is a write off.


/Edit: Oh poo poo, no, I take it back the best one was Red Bull, but from the post-mix tap at the bar. gently caress man, that poo poo was like liquid crack! Do you still get that anywhere? I only ever knew of one bar that had it on tap, and they eventually stopped having it. It's like regular Red Bull (obviously) only it doesn't have the 'piss' taste, and instead has more of a 'Slurm' thing going on where it just tastes of dopamine hits and addiction.
