Jason's Review



Hello again, this is Jason with Screaming Energy, here to talk about Rockstar 2X Energy. Being educated in North Carolina, I didn't have all day to read the 11 words on the front of the can, 2 of which would have let me know it was "low carb". Unfortunately, nothing on the can read, "Completely unlike any of the flavors you like".

Everything about this drink indicates it should taste something akin to regular Rockstar. All of the black cans: regular, punched and cola are laden with plenteous portions of sugar. Meanwhile, the current low calorie offerings come in a white, blue or yellow can. I don't think Rockstar 2x Energy's can could be more misleading. Perhaps if it said it wasn't having relations with any or all the guys it in its infidelity support group.

What could have possessed Rockstar to think putting a low carb drink into a black can was a good idea? It's like someone saying, "Hey, we should put babies in plastic bags", "toss some used heroine needles into cereal boxes", "Make an entire television network around Oprah", "Let women drive", "vote", or "out of the kitchen". It's exactly the opposite of what you should do.

Concerning the taste, this drink must have been formulated by British R&B artist and Crystal Light Spokeswoman Estelle, because it tastes like a carbonated version of their chalky, acidic lemon-lime offering.

I always thought the 5-hour energy "belch-inducing formula" commercial bit was ridiculous, and while I couldn't care less if some pretentious trollop is disgusted by my gaseous eruptions, Rockstar 2x Energy makes you uncomfortably gassy and bloated. Like Nitrous Monster, it doesn't even seem carbonated, it's like drinking Guinness foam.

Lastly, with 2x the energy, you would think you could party til they kick us out, or the police shut us down down, police shut us down down, po po shut us deerrrrrrrrwwwwwww...but "2x Energy" is by volume, so this is really on1y 1.5x the total caffeine of a 16oz. regular Rockstar, I'd much prefer they just put 50% more caffeine into regular Rockstar.

In summation, it's smaller, is the least savory Rockstar flavor, costs more, is unnoticeably more energizing, makes you gassy and (I speculate) it's what's making my pee taste funny.

Guests's Review

What can I say about Rockstar 2x Energy that would fully convey my disappointment? Besides the can design looking more and more like something from the Avril Lavigne clothing line, I'm no more happy with the contents in the can. There are two new 2x flavors, one comes in a pink can, which it stands to reason is diet, and then this beefy black and yellow can, which, like Jason, I assumed was for non fatties who are allowed sugar. We were both wrong.

Rockstar 2x is citrusy, but in the least pleasant way possible. The aftertaste is like children's chewable pain medication. They describe this as "lightly carbonated", to me it seems like it just had an Alka Seltzer tablet dropped in it.

I'd hope the 250mg of caffeine would get me all wired up, but the drinking experience was so sub-par (being that I expected something delicious, and instead got Rockstar 2x), I'm not even sure I noticed an energy difference. Scientifically, if you knocked this back, with no regard to flavor or enjoyment, you should be pretty invigorated. Unfortunately, I gagged this down over the course of hours.

At $2.19, this is just a waste 20 cents over Original Rockstar or, if you insist on drinking low carb, either Diet Rockstar or Rockstar Zero Carb.

Rockstar 2x Energy Extra Caffeine can or bottle design and textual information
Rockstar 2x Energy Extra Caffeine comes in a can that's nearly identical to the new regular Rockstar Energy can. Black and goldish-yellow are the primary colors. The most notable difference is that the can is 12fl. oz. instead of 16. The new can looks a lot more like what their current sponsorship endeavors, namely their new rally car, motocross and supercross jerseys. The design has distressed grey stars in emanating from the main star on the side of the can. There is a distinct lack of the "Party Like a Rockstar" slogan on the can (we're not complaining). Otherwise, "Rockstar" in yellow, "2x" in white, "Energy" in red and "Extra Caffeine" in metallic. Beside the star, "2x" in yellow, "250mg" in red and "caffeine per can" in white. At the bottom, not obvious enough for Jason to see, "LOW CARB" in white.

The back of the can does contain a small motivational blurb, "2x caffeine, 2x energy, Rockstar 2x is our strongest formulation ever. Rockstar 2x combines our potent blend of vitamins, herbs and amino acids with 2x the caffeine per ounce compared to original Rockstar - and only 15 calories per can! Enjoy this lightly carbonated, fully refreshing drink super chilled."

Okay let's get this out if the way. This drink gave me second thoughts. Rockstar has put a tremendous amount if effort for the taste. It is sweeter than red bull and monster combined. However, the one thing that gets me so fucking pissed off is the side effects! Why the hell would you add a super draining crash on your drink? Goddamn, it gets me pissed just thinking about it. Someone must give me a recommendation for something that doesn't make me crash. (P.S. Iam 15) Response by Jason: Well, you certainly seem angry. When young men are 12-16 usually, a little thing called puberty them crash and angry. Since I feel like the "crash" (claimed to be from all the sugar), is a myth, invented by 5-hour energy, I doubt that's what you're experiencing. Particularly since this has little to no sugar. I've never seen a virile young person "crash", even after drinking a 2-liter of Mountain Dew. Lastly, it's not like Rockstar is sitting around saying, "You know what this product needs? A good crash!"

jason: What is the diffefence between me drinking one Rockstar every day and my husband drinking 6 to 8 cans of mountain dews a day?? can u help? He says I shouldnt dring rockstar. Yet he's a mt dew junkie. Edited by Jason: Well, he's a man, so theoretically, he's always going to be right. Aside from that, the difference is about 120g of carbs in the Mountain Dew, and Mountain Dew has none of the vitamins that Rockstar has. I don't think it's worth maritally squabbling about though.
