QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Sparking Energy (Cherry Citrus and Peach)

Written by | April 22, 2014

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.

QUICK REVIEW: Rockstar Pure Zero Energy Drink (Punched and Silver Ice)

Written by | September 27, 2013

Topics: 8 Rating, Energy Drink, Rockstar

Rockstar Pure Zero Energy Drink (Punched and Silver Ice)

Purchased Price: $1.50 each
Size: 16 oz. cans
Purchased at: 7-Eleven
Rating: 8 out of 10 (Punched)
Rating: 8 out of 10 (Silver Ice)
Pros: Punched has a pleasant, but not too sweet, fruit punch flavor. Silver Ice has an equally pleasant and not too sweet citrus flavor. No calories. Sugar free. They don’t really taste like zero sugar drinks. 80 milligrams of caffeine per serving gives a nice boost of energy. Light carbonation makes them easy to drink. Punched has a cute pink color that Hello Kitty would enjoy.
Cons: Artificial sweeteners become noticeable as they gets warmer. They obviously copied the idea of textured cans from Monster Energy.

Nutrition Facts: 8 fl. oz. – 0 calories, 0 grams of fat, 180 milligrams of sodium, 1 gram of carbohydrates, 0 grams of sugar, 1 gram of erythritol, 0 grams of protein, 100% niacin, 100% vitamin B12, 100% vitamin B6, and 100% pantothenic acid.)

QUICK REVIEW: Tropical Citrus Rockstar Energy Water

Topics: 5 Rating, Rockstar, Water

Tropical Citrus Rockstar Energy Water

Purchased Price: $1.59
Size: 20 oz. bottle
Purchased at: 7-Eleven
Rating: 5 out of 10
Pros: Hydrating. If you enjoy kicking your heart with 200 milligrams of caffeine, you will like this. Contains typical Rockstar Energy Drink ingredients. Sugar free. Zero calories. Provides 100 percent of your daily vitamin C.
Cons: If you hate the amount of flavor VitaminWaters have, you’ll hate this. Tropical citrus flavor was a bit odd and it almost doesn’t do a good job of masking the bitterness of the caffeine. Way too easy to drink. Artificial sweeteners more noticeable as it gets warmer.

Nutrition Facts: 0 calories, 0 grams of fat, 0 milligrams of sodium, 35 milligrams of potassium, 0 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of sugar, 0 grams of protein, and 100% vitamin C.

NEWS: Stay Hydrated and Awake With Rockstar Energy Water

Written by | October 10, 2012

Topics: Energy Drink, Rockstar, Water

This week, Rockstar Energy showed off at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show a new line of energy water. Rockstar Energy Water is sugar free, has zero calories, contains 125 milligrams of caffeine per bottle, and will be available in three flavors — Tropical Citrus, Orange Tangerine, and Blueberry Pomegranate Acai.

Beverage Digest posted an image of all three flavors on Twitter.

BevNet has more information about the Rockstar Energy Water line.

This isn’t the first time Rockstar has entered the enhanced water waters. After doing a little research on Google, it turns out Rockstar sold a line of energy water in Australia, which appears to have been discontinued in 2010 or 2011.

When will it be available? Rockstar isn’t saying, but a better question to ask about Rockstar products would be, “When is Rockstar Energy going to make a beverage fit for a rockstar, like energy Champagne?”

WEEK IN REVIEWS – 3/10/2012

Written by | March 10, 2012

Topics: Candy, Doritos, Rockstar, Trader Joe's, Water

Willie Nelson

Here are a few product reviews posted this week from other blogs we follow.

The makers of Rockstar Energy Drink has a new tranquility beverage that I’m guessing makes you relax like a rockstar. I’m going to assume that rockstar is Willie Nelson. (via Thirsty Dudes)

Google Translate tell me the “dinamita” in Doritos Dinamita is English for “dynamite.” Wile E. Coyote hasn’t been successful in catching the Road Runner with regular dynamite, so maybe he needs to order these from the Frito-Lay Corporation. (via The Bootleg Guy)

Walmart now offers a store brand version of something similar to MiO Liquid Water Enhancer. I wish Kmart would make themselves something similar to Target. (via Drinkable Review)

Some company makes haggis chocolates. If you don’t know what haggis is, Google it and then wish you hadn’t. (via Chocolate Reviews)

Trader Joe’s takes a cookie and puts popcorn inside it. Next, I’d like Trader Joe’s to take this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and put a Trader Joe’s on it. (via A Sweet Score)
