For the past two or three months, I have been seeing Monster Import on the shelves of numerous convenience stores. So the other night, I thought to myself I will pick up a couple cans. Figured it would be a good idea, as Monster Import comes in 550 mL cans. Another feature I noticed was cool on the can was that it was resealable. A little more unique than what you would see on Rockstar’s 710 mL cans.
So before I tried it, I was thinking the flavor would be quite intense. But right when I took a sniff of it, I began to think “This isn’t going to be like regular Monster, just in a bigger can, is it?” Once I took a sip, my exact thought happened. I’m not saying regular Monster tastes bad. I was just excited about the fact it had a flashy can with a graphic of an eagle. But that’s corporate marketing for you. Okay, Monster, you got me on this one. Lucky for you, it didn’t taste bad.
