nope

I keep forgetting it is there until it is to late in the day for me to try it.

But I tell you what I went to sams club today and they were giving out free samples of this

http://content.costco.com/Images/Content/Product/658251b.jpg

and from the small sample it tasted great. If I was not sugar challenged I would pick up a few cases.

so i just looked it up and it is only 3 grams of sugar

I will probably pick up a 12 at sams the next time i go

I think it is normally 15.99 a 12 but they have a special right now with $5 off most of the 24 packs - which are 29.99 I think.

Absolute Zero is tasty . . . got a case of it at Sam's. Drinking one right now.

The Rehab Tea + Lemonade is awesome--it's an Arnold Palmer with caffeine.

:D

I like the orange one but they never have it for sale in the 4 pack cases like I get the lemonade flavor.

Rockstar has a lemonade one that's damn tasty as well.

I don't drink the non-carbonated ones. Yuck IMO. The zero you have in the fridge is good. I haven't seen the black ice one in stores yet... Mmmmmmmmmm

You better drink it tomorrow or negs!

I just tried the smaller green canned monster that says " super dry" on it, it's lime flavored, by far the best tasting one I've had

fuk

in for negs

I was running late and forgot it.

I think they are all carbonated and the nitrogen adds more (maybe)

Negged!!!

And no, they are not all carbonated. Some will say at the bottom "non-carbonated" and they taste like crap IMO.

ok

I took the first chug from the can. I was surprised how fruity it was.

It was good, a lot better then I thought it would be.

I was feeling really beat this morning and didn't get much sleep and I finally thought to drink it before noon - probably because of this thread ;)

I was planning to just drink it slow and see if it made me jittery or anything but I drank it down really pretty quick. I was worried I would be jumping out of my skin or all shaky or nervous but it really did not kick that hard at all - I was actually a little disappointed. It still picked me up but not a crazy amount so I guess that was good.


I picked up a case of them and the lemon-aid at sams today. I will review the lemon-aid when i have one (so don't hold your breath) but maybe tomorrow to start off my work week.

fyi - they are $5 off per case at sams right now (limit 2)

I like the zero and the low carb. I've already had 2 today and I'm resisting the 3rd until bed time :D. I go through a case every 3 days.

have you tried the lemonade?
If I had more then one I probably would have drank it today.

I have been living on way to much caffeine lately and though maybe I should cut back but there is this option as well :D

I think the lemonade is caffeinated but i am not sure.

tmonkey

Yep - non carbonated

I bet you would like that black ice - the review i read said it was like the absolute zero with extra carbonation from the nitrogen

I would have bought the orange but they only had 12 packs for $15.99 with no $5 off deal - I asked if I could get $5 off if I bought two and they were not having it.

I thought the orange would be a good breakfast drink ;) :D :)

24 packs were $29.99

If you want a good orange flavored energy drink, try Verve. Zero cals/sugar and very healthy. Tastes great.

Thanks . . . I had to run over for some other stuff and grabbed 2 ($25.00 each after the discount).

:D

Looks like it's one of those E-value things . . . I was going to go back another time and stock up. But I guess it's a one-time thing per membership where you get the $5 off. Still, that's a good deal. Costco sometimes will do a $5 off on the cases too.

I think they are running it until the 7th - I assume per visit but I did see 2 per member (got my 2 today) - I may go try and get more - or send my wife ftmfw :D

I warned you: don't mess with the non-carbonated. There's a hundred drinks, much cheaper, just like them - nothing special. Stick to the carbonated ones.

The better half went shopping in PHX and came back with this yesterday :D

this stuff is bad

I like water and i like caffeine but the water has a odd taste to it and it did not seem like there was any caffeine in it at all

I rate this as AVOID
