Rockstar Wild Berry Energy Shot

energyshot.jpgA small, black bottle sits in front of me. The label's gold star gleams in the harsh fluorescent light, and I decide to get the ordeal over with. Upon opening the twist-cap, I am greeted by a strong, sweet, almost cough-syrupy smell. So I reluctantly take a sip. The first flavor that hits my tongue is, you guessed it, cough syrup. The cherry kind. However, that assault on my senses subsides and a wave of surprisingly sweet, pleasant berry flavor hits. I decide that I may actually enjoy this caffeine-filled experience. Hmm.. I finish off the last of the small (read: one mouthful) bottle, and sit back. I have never liked energy drinks, so I was bemused that the one that I expected to be the worst ended up being quite good. An hour later, my hands shook like I had just survived a plane crash. My thoughts on this bottle of liquid lightning? Sweet. Syrupy. Pleasant. I will definitely go back to Rockstar Energy Shots for a quick boost.

I take about 2 out of 5 points off by default for these things costing one million dollars each.

I have tried numerous Rockstar's. However, no matter how hard I try, I still never have that
"Party Like a Rockstar" feeling. Ho Hum.

This rockstar has a pretty good flavor but for an energy pick up it falls a little short. i prefer the monster shots but the trick for a good pick up is to drink them on an empty stomach. be warned though: its not for everyone.

I was totally thrilled when these came out they work great and the taste does not make me ill.
However trying to find them in stores of any kind is almost impossible in my area. So I logged onto the Rockstar website where they are advertised in their product lineup but they do not offer them for purchase.
Very disappointing!
