Rockstar Relax

Now I know this is a blog about energy drinks, but Rockstar also makes a drink that helps you relax. And it is aptly named “Rockstar Relax.” It is a tropical guava flavor (even says so on the can). It does say it is non-carbonated, but I would say it is more so lightly carbonated. Still tastes pretty good though. And obviously, there is no caffeine. But they do pre-warn you that it causes drowsiness and that you should not operate a vehicle or heavy machinery after consumption. Not that I or anyone else with any common sense would do that, but they are right to warn us as well: It knocked me out minutes after I drank it. That’s how relaxed it made me. Not a bad thing, as I needed the sleep that night. Playing with your eight-month-old niece will wear you out, especially after she received a boatload of Christmas presents.

So if you are looking for a drink that will help you relax, but don’t feel like any alcohol: This is the drink for you! Go buy yourself a can or more today!

Rockstar Iced

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , on 05/16/2012 by Brett

So here is the final review of the new Rockstar flavors: Rockstar Iced. This one is Rockstar’s iced tea version, but in a flavor I didn’t think anyone would try: Peach flavor. Ordinarily, I am not really into anything that is peach flavored, but I figured I might as well give this one a try. After all, Rockstar has never disappointed me with any of their flavors. And I’ll admit, this was no exception. I like iced tea to begin with, but this iced tea leaves the rest of them in the dust! Rockstar, you’ve done it again! Keep up the good work.

Rockstar Rehab

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , , , on 05/14/2012 by Brett

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to another work week. Sorry to remind you. But today, we do have a new review. This one is about Rockstar Rehab. Just like XDurance, I was absolutely intrigued to try this one. The main reason: Rockstar Rehab contains coconut water, but with 160 mg of caffeine. Basically, this is just another flavor to the Recovery line-up, at least in a way. I didn’t mind the flavor to this one. Coconut is very good for you to begin with, but I know coconut water is not for everyone. And after the week I had (Not that my week was bad, but it was busy), I needed a drink like Rockstar Rehab. I’m not saying I will drink this one religiously when it comes to the Rockstar line-up. But I would certainly buy it again. Wednesday’s review: Rockstar Iced.

Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Taurine 2000 mg, Caffeine (Coffea sp bean) 160 mg, panax ginseng (3:1 root extract, QCE 300 mg, 3 to 5% ginsenosides) 100 mg, sodium (sodium citrate) 55 mg, opuntia ficus-indica (prickly pear 4:1 leaf extract, QCE 200 mg) 50 mg, silybum marianum (milk thistle 20:1 seed extract, QCE 800 mg, 80% silymarin) 40 mg, niacinamide 20 mg, pantothenic acid 20 mg, vitamin B6 4 ng, potassium (monopotassium phosphate) 2 mg, vitamin B12 30 mcg.

Rockstar XDurance

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , , , on 05/11/2012 by Brett

Just like NOS, Rockstar has released more new flavors into Canada. But Rockstar has released three new flavors: XDurance, Rehab and Iced. My review today will be about Rockstar XDurance. First of all: I was quite intrigued about the name of the drink itself: XDurance. Figured I could use a little extra endurance one day, so I tried this one. And I am quite impressed with how this drink tastes. It combines acai, blueberry and pomegranate flavors into one drink, as well as branched chain amino acids (BCAA), which gives anyone that extra endurance they need for anything any day of the week! And the first time I tried this: I definitely felt it working. Not saying I could bench press a ’57 Chevy after drinking a can, but certainly felt pretty strong after. So give Rockstar XDurance a try today. You won’t be disappointed. Monday’s review: Rockstar Rehab.

Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Taurine 2000 mg, Caffeine (Coffea sp bean) 160 mg, Camellia sinensis (green tea leaf extract, QCE 1500 mg, 50% epigallocatechin 3-gallate) 50 mg, Paullinia cupana (guarana seed extract, QCE 12.5 mg, 1.0% caffeine) 50 mg, L-valine 50 mg, L-leucine 50 mg, L-isoleucine 50 mg, pantothenic acid (calcium D-pantothenate) 20 mg, vitamin B3 (niacinamide) 20 mg, monobasic potassium phosphate 16 mg, vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl acetate) 6 IU, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine hydrochloride) 4 mg.

NOS Charged Lime

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , on 05/09/2012 by Brett

Today’s review is about NOS Charged Lime. The first sip I took didn’t really impress me. But as I kept drinking it, it got better. Couldn’t really taste the lime in the beginning, but was able to eventually. I didn’t mind this one, but I was expecting a lot more flavor out of this one. But just like all other NOS flavors: It packs a punch and keeps you awake. And just like Electric Cherry: No sugar and only 20 calories! So all of you weight and health-conscious people out there, you can enjoy Charged Lime for the low calories, but if you want flavor as well, go with Electric Cherry.

Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Taurine 1533 mg, Caffeine 194 mg, Inositol 150 mg, Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCL) 3.1 mg, Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) 9.3 mg

Non-Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Carbonated water, citric acid, sodium citrate, natural flavor, sodium phosphate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, acesulfame-potassium, sucralose, calcium disodium EDTA, calcium.

Contains (Per 473 mg): Sucralose 64 mg, acesulfame-potassium 72 mg.

NOS Electric Cherry

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , on 05/07/2012 by Brett

So a little while back, NOS Energy released two new flavors in Canada: Electric Cherry and Charged Lime. Today’s review is about Electric Cherry. There is a version in the US called “Loaded Cherry,” which is a black cherry flavored drink, but loaded, pardon the expression, with high fructose corn syrup. Electric Cherry tastes just like regular cherry, which you can’t really screw up, has no high fructose corn syrup and is only 20 calories. That’s right, only 20 calories! But it still has the patented ass-kicking power NOS always has with 194 mg of caffeine, which should get anyone through the day. NOS always puts out great flavors, but this one is definitely my favorite so far! Keep up the good work, NOS! Next review: NOS Charged Lime.

Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Taurine 1533 mg, Caffeine 194 mg, Inositol 150 mg, Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine HCL) 3.1 mg, Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) 9.3 mg

Non-Medicinal Ingredients (Per 473 mL): Carbonated water, citric acid, natural flavor, sodium citrate, sodium phosphate, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, acesulfame-potassium, caramel color, sucralose, color, calcium disodium EDTA.

Contains (Per 473 mg): Sucralose 64 mg, acesulfame-potassium 72 mg.
