Monster Energy Gronk

Unless you still think Deflategate was a conspiracy against the Patriots, you’ll want take a pass on this flavor. It’s a fumble.

Review: Monster Energy Ultra Black


Monster Energy Ultra Black

A black cherry-flavored Monster? That actually tastes good? And has zero calories? Where can I find it? 7-Eleven.

Review: Monster Energy Ultra – Ultra Red, Zero Ultra, & Ultra Blue


Monster Energy Ultra - Ultra Red, Zero Ultra, & Ultra Blue

A trio of flavored, sugar-free, zero calorie energy drinks from Monster, showcasing cranberry, citrus, and berry flavors. Naming conventions could use some work, but they are solid zero sugar entries.

Review: Monster Energy Absolutely Zero


Monster Energy Absolutely Zero

With no sugar, you’ll note a taste difference vs. flagship Monster Energy. However, it’s a fair trade to save 200 calories and still get 8.75 mg/oz of caffeine!

Review: Peace Tea Texas Style Sweet Tea


Peace Tea Texas Style Sweet Tea

Lives up to its name regarding sweetness, but has nothing to do with the Republic of Texas other than goofy artwork.

Review: Peace Tea Georgia Peach Tea


Peace Tea Georgia Peach Tea

Very sweet with a notable use of sucralose in the aftertaste. Not the best peach tea we’ve tasted. You can probably do better looking elsewhere.

Review: Peace Tea Green Tea


Peace Tea Green Tea

Probably the most authentic-tasting of the Peace Tea lineup, this Green Tea flavor also features honey and ginseng. It’s affordably refreshing!

Review: Peace Tea Cranberry Tea


Peace Tea Cranberry Tea

This now-discontinued flavor is still bitter that its place was stolen by Peace Tea Sno-Berry. But to be honest, it’s not a big loss.
