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.

TapouT Energy Papaya Green Tea

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , on 07/25/2011 by Brett

So as I reported a little while back, TapouT Energy released their fourth flavor, Papaya Green Tea. I remember months ago when they first announced this flavor, it would be an interesting one to try. No other energy drink manufacturer has released papaya-flavored anything, let alone combining it with green tea. But I must say: Certainly worth trying.

Like any energy drink, TapouT Energy Papaya Green Tea is best served chilled. Like I always enjoy doing, I poured a can of PGT into a glass over ice and it has an amazingly crisp flavor to it. Very clean and refreshing. Certainly worth the hype and the wait. It is certainly on the same playing field as the other three flavors I have previously reviewed for TapouT Energy. I’ll admit: Cherry Citrus is still my favorite, but you still can’t go wrong with Papaya Green Tea or any flavor in TapouT Energy’s line-up. Keep up the good work, guys. Hope to eventually see a fifth flavor to help everyone “stay in the fight!”

For months, many of us have known TapouT Energy was releasing a fourth flavor to their already kick-ass line-up. Well, the wait is finally over! Received news on Twitter that TapouT Energy has now released their newest flavor, Papaya Green Tea!

As for my American friends: All TapouT Energy flavors will hopefully be heading south of the 49th. No official announcement yet, but I know the TapouT Energy guys are working diligently on that.

Don’t forget to check out the TapouT Energy website as well! If you click on “News,” it will mention where you may pick up the new Papaya Green Tea flavor. I’m sure just like the other three flavors, this one is going to be absolutely epic!

Beaver Buzz Green Tea

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , on 02/07/2011 by Brett

Here is yet another Beaver Buzz flavor I have meant to review for quite some time. That would be Beaver Buzz Green Tea. In their entire line-up, this is the only one that does not contain carbonated water. Then again, green tea itself would be odd if it were carbonated. Next to the Saskatoon Berry flavor, this one is my favorite in their line-up. I like green tea in general, but this one rules! Not only do they use natural sugar, but they also use honey. Honestly, you can tell, even before reading the ingredients. Seriously, Beaver Buzz knows how to keep you wanting more. I know I do.

Also, please check out the Beaver Buzz website for the rest of their line-up.

TapouT Energy to release new flavor

Posted in Industry News with tags , , , , on 01/07/2011 by Brett

First of all: Happy New Year everyone! Welcome to 2011. Second: I apologize for the long delay in posts. It has been a while.

TapouT, the very same company known for its line of clothing for mixed martial arts, has already released three flavors in their energy drink line-up: Cherry Citrus, Cranberry Orange and Peach Mango. For the record: All will be reviewed in the very near future. But I found out from TapouT Energy last week they will be releasing a new flavor in the future: Papaya Green Tea. No word as to when it will be released, but I know it is coming.

For now, you can find TapouT Energy at 7-Eleven and Wal-Mart. Please also check out TapouT Energy’s website:

My first review for 2011 will be out on Monday, January 10. Stay tuned!
