Rockstar Sparking Energy (Cherry Citrus and Peach)

Purchased Price: $2.09 each
Size: 16 oz. cans
Purchased at: 7-Eleven
Rating: 6 out of 10 (Cherry Citrus)
Rating: 3 out of 10 (Peach)
Pros: Cherry Citrus has a nice light citrus aroma and pleasant initial cherry flavor, which turns to a citrus flavor on the back end. If you hate syrupy energy drinks, you may like their light flavor. Zero sugar and zero calories. 80 milligrams of sweet, sweet caffeine per serving. I love the can’s vivid colors which probably look even awesomer if I was on LSD.
Cons: The peach flavor is a bit too artificial, making it kind of hard to drink. As the Cherry Citrus gets warm, the cherry flavor gets lighter. Artificial sweeteners are really noticeable if they get slightly warm. They get their caffeine from green coffee beans, similar to Starbucks Refreshers, but green coffee isn’t listed in the ingredients like it is with Starbucks Refreshers.

    I tried the peach one & it tasted like soda.

    These were being tested in Southern California awhile back and I drank a ton of them. I actually couldn’t disagree with these reviews more. Properly chilled, the peach is the best tasting low cal energy drink I’ve ever had. What I liked most was actually the direct opposite of what you observed, the artificial flavor was muted more then I expected and it just seemed like a carbonated peach soda. I liked the cherry as well. Considering how terrible tasting most of the other low cal energy drinks are, I was shocked by how good these taste in comparison. To each their own I guess.
