Been unleashing the BEAST alot lately (I think this means to drink one and take a nasty deuce).

Usually go with one of the ULTRA flavs. Low calorie but high taste.


New RESERVE Monsters just dropped though and the white pineapple is amazing. just smooth drinkin with all of that ENERGY BLEND which makes my balls tingle.


Monster REHAB for when I'm feeling like mixing in some tea and lower carbonation.


Good poo poo IMO.

Whatcha sippin on?

Sometimes when you get the Monster protein drinks the whey has congealed into these weird gross slimy clumps at the bottom because it seperated in the can while on the shelf lol. It's loving insanely gross to accidentally get in your throat, like someone else's excessively chunky phlegm suddenly jumping down your mouth.

Monster Rehab is by far the best Monster flavors and arguably the best of all energy drinks. And simply because of them not being carbonated.

All energy drinks taste like poo poo and it's just a matter of which one tastes the least like poo poo. That being said I only drink either Monster Ultra (the white zero calorie one) that I get in the huge packs from Costco or the lemon/tea Rehab one since it doesn't have carbonation.

Monster's alright. Their tea flavors are vastly superior to the bang ones and only have a small amount of calories. And i usually like bang. Today i stopped at the fancy hippie grocery store for lunch and picked up an ~all natural~ energy drink with yerba mate. It's sweetened with stevia so i kinda don't like it but hey caffeine is caffeine. Monk fruit is the superior "natural" calorie free sweetener i think. Maybe it doesn't go well in drinks.

Yeah there's a lot of lovely bang flavors i will admit. The rainbow unicorn one was one of the few drinks i had to just dump out it was so bad. It tasted just like some antibiotic i took as a kid. My favorites are piña colada and key lime pie

I like Monster every now and again. I don't drink soft drink a tonne so it's no worse on the level than a Coke or something. I usually go Ultra or Juice. Mango Loco (lol) or the Punch Juice ones are good, or the white, pink and blue Ultra ones are good too.

Usually I just have soda water tho. Lol at the "Super Fuel" poo poo tho. It's just a soft drink, it's not gonna help you with poo poo.

I've literally never had a single flavor other than the green poo poo. Does it all still taste like melted jolly ranchers and soda water?

Monster kinda fucks me up. Like it's almost real drugs. I don't think there's anything illegal in there of course but there's some other poo poo because coffee or espresso doesn't do the same thing.

Yeah i dunno how much difference the amino acids n stuff makes, i think the 300mg of caffeine is more what energizes you.

300mg is a lot, an average large (12oz apparently?) double shot coffee is about 120mg. So it's roughly 2.a bit double shots. I'm okay with that. Like, just have one lol. Who the gently caress would drink more than one a day? Two if there's like eight hours between them? Even ignoring caffeine I wouldn't want to drink two anywhere close to each other haha.

Most of the established mass market energy drinks (including Monster) are 140-180, 240-300 is for the newer brands like Reign and Bang that taste (even more) like evil.

It's for people like me who have fried our adrenals to where we need larger doses of caffeine for it to do anything.

Monster Ultra has less caffeine than other energy drinks (like Rockstar, Red Bull, etc.)... it's about the same amount that's in Coke, Pepsi, etc. The "energy" is supposed to come from the other stuff they say is in it. Anyway the point is you can drink them the same way as other soda/pop and not get a caffeine rush.

This isn't true either. It's a middle of the road energy drink similar to an equivalent size Red Bull that gives a middle of the road stimulant effect. If you try to slam four in a row like you can with Coke, you will regret it (assuming you'd even be able to stomach it :gonk:).

Ask Why, Asshole


I really like monster and was drinking like 4 or 5 cans a week but I decided it was not good for me and recently stopped. I still keep one can in my fridge because the huge amount of caffeine along with some pain meds does great for fighting a migraine. I will miss my early morning can on Fri/Sat/Sun though.

That's a high quality avatar right there.


The first and only time I ever had Monster was about ten years ago at Mayhem Fest. And I should set this up by saying I donít drink coffee, and when I need to wake up early after the most sleepless nights, a cup of green tea has me wired for hours.

It was about 100 degrees out and Iíd been drinking, getting high, and getting beat up in mosh pits all day. I was dehydrated as gently caress and I noticed people lining up leaving a tent with big cups of water.

I needed water. So I stand in line with a million other stinky metalheads and when I finally get to the drink table I realize thereís no water. It looked like they were just pouring people giant cups of Gatorade. I got like two or three cups and it didnít taste like Gatorade. Then I noticed all the Monster logos all over the place and put two and two together.

I was still very dehydrated but then was also full of sugar and caffein. I was energized before a giant crash. I jumped back in the mosh pit and watched some chick get her teeth knocked out. My friend on shrooms thought it was hilarious.

Monster Ultra Zero has 140mg of caffeine. That's like 4 times the amount of a Coke.

Well poo poo I guess I'm wrong. I just don't feel it... if I slam 4 in a row of Coke or Pepsi I'd get sick too.

I also found out that Monster in Australia at least has 150mg of caffeine. So a double shot of coffee basically. There's a limit of 32mg per 100mL. Given a Monster/standard energy drink is like 500mL they cap out at 160mg.

So no insane 300mg drinks for us haha. Still like four times the caffeine of a Coke, but suddenly doesn't sound scary when caffeine wise 4 Coke cans = 1 Monster, because goddamn I watch people chug down Coke like it's fucken water.

People should cut down on soft drinks is the point. Drink more water, it's good stuff.
