REVIEW: Reign Storm 2024 Energy Drink Flavors

Oh, hey!!! New Reign Storm flavors!!! Let’s get caffeinated!!! Whoa!!! Too many exclamation points! Maybe I’m already too caffeinated!

This year’s lot features Strawberry Apricot, Mango, Citrus Zest, and Guava Strawberry. They come in the same 12-ounce slim cans as all other Reign Storm varieties and feature “clean energy,” which means the 200 milligrams of caffeine are provided by plant sources like green coffee beans, green tea extract, ginseng, guarana, and guayusa. They also have zero sugar and no artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.

Much like the original Reign Storm varieties, there isn’t a bad tasting one in this bunch. But if you’re staring at all of these new ones at the store and only want to buy one, let me be your energy drink sommelier and recommend getting the Mango or Guava Strawberry. The former has a sweet tropicalness that shouts mango in my head. It nails the fruit’s flavor, and I’m glad it wasn’t paired with another to take away some of the spotlight. Guava Strawberry had a perfect balance between the two flavors, and it was berry berry good. Although that isn’t surprising since Monster did a great job with its Ultra Strawberry Dreams, which I thought had a slight guava flavor.

Great, but not quite as great as the two above was Citrus Zest. After tasting it and looking at the grapefruit on its can, I can’t help but think this tastes similar to the Monster Ultra Ruby Red Fantasy that came out earlier this year. Although I thought the grapefruit stood out a bit more with this. And, finally we come to Strawberry Apricot, which I enjoyed as much as Citrus Zest. The balance was like 60 percent strawberry and 40 percent apricot, and it made for a tasty energy drink, which again is not surprising because of how well Monster does strawberry.

Much like Monster’s Ultra line, I didn’t notice the artificial sweeteners in these, which are sucralose, acesulfame potassium, and erythritol. I had somewhat of an issue with the sweeteners coming through when I covered the original flavors, but I didn’t experience it with these.

Reign Storm Energy Drinks are like Monster Ultra with benefits. They have the same great taste, and similar flavors, as the Ultra line, but also have more caffeine and ingredients that help accelerate metabolism, provide immunity support, and help support hair and skin health. But I really wish they came in 16-ounce cans so that I could have more caffeine, more helpful vitamins, and more tasty liquid to drink.
