    Monster energy drink

    Does anyone else here drink Monster? The drink in a rather distinct black and green can (or one of the other flavours) I love the taste especially now they do a sugar free diet one in a blue can.

    Im rather annoyed tho my local tesco, the one near work and petrol station I normly fill up at on route to work no longer seem to have the blue diet monster! Might bulk buy some online

    I'm addicted to energy drinks, not keen on Monster though, or Relentless for that matter (apart from the sugar free ones).

    Have you tried Rockstar Punched or Rockstar Juiced? Very tasty, don't taste as sweet and sickly as other energy drinks

    Don;t like rockstar, tryed it a few years ago at Santa Pods Bug Jam VW show, they were sponsering the event and had some women giving out free rockstar drinks, monster is a proper different taste and realy nice.

    No fear is sold in a few places near my work but ive never seen it elsewhere, with a sealing can lid! 1

    Monster is great stuff ....drink it all the time at work.

    Bit of a downside that from a distance they look like lager/cider cans though....had a few funny looks from staff members seeing me swigging from a can at my desk.

    One of our SLT's jaw literally dropped one morning when he saw me walking in swigging a can of Rockstar, and I never put him straight either

    I have this problem too, also if I am at a party before going out I will usually drink one on the way to the venue when we have left and then the coppers give you funny looks too since you cant drink booze on the streets here.

    Ive had a funny look when I drank some while driving from a copper lol but the cans are very distinct patterns and colours so its not too bad. Coca cola are doing coke zero in 500ml cans now Ive seen! Didn't think coca cola made monster, knew they made relentless tho.

    I have a good story about Relentless from when I worked in the IT Shop at Cardiff Uni:

    The union bar took delivery of a crate of Relentless. When they got it down to the cellar they realised one of the cans had split but decided to leave it.
    The next day the contents of that can had eaten through three other cans causing them to explode. Apparently the inside of the cans are coated but the outside isn't. Yum.

    This sounds abit OTT I dont see anything that could be near that corrosive going into a publically avaliable drink

    You do know that you can use coke to clean engine parts right, that stuff is plenty corrosive and it is lightweight compared to energy drinks.
