Jason's Review



In true Monster fashion, they took a relatively good idea, and made another product that's pretty much the same. Ultra Blue is not a bold step away from Zero Ultra (which we liked). Ultra Blue tastes like the juice that's in a fruit cap snack, that's been carbonated, only with all the bold natural sugar sweetness replaced with muted artificial sweetener. It's safe to say that I like Ultra Blue as well, but we really only need one of this flavor. Even if you're diabetic, you have to be getting tired of all the lo-carb Monster flavors. You've got all the rehab teas, Zero Ultra, Monster Lo-Carb, Absolutely Zero, Import Light, and whatever they're calling Java Monster Lo-Ball these days. What's next, "Srsly Zero"?

In what appears to be some addressing of issues in the hailstorm of lawsuits, Monster has taken a few actions with the back of the can. Firstly, listing all the energy blend ingredients (taurine, panax ginseng extract, l-carnitine, caffeine, glucuronolactone, guarana extract and inositol), along with the caffeine content 70mg/8 fl. oz. or 140mg per can, and the "consume responsibly" statement, which clearly states that the product is not recommended for children.

We acquired several Monster flavors at the local gas station at what I consider the ideal price point, 2/$3. For the price, this is a good 0 sugar energy drink, but, as previously stated, so are Zero Ultra, Absolutely Zero. If you're just watching your carbs, or like diet energy drinks, I still like the original Lo-Carb. If you're diabetic and have no carbs to spare in your diet, give it a try, particularly if you can get the 2/$3 sale price.

Subscribing is for cool people, who also check out our new youtube channel, screaminghotsauce. Folks who are so angry that we don't constantly sing the praises of Monster that they could literally stab me in the face, should flame Screaming Energy on facebook and Screaming Energy on twitter...and have your friends do it to.

Guests's Review

I've not been doing this as long as Jason, but I think he may have flubbed and said this was 0 carb, which it's not, it has 2g of carbs and 1g of Erythritol. Again, I highlight my lack of expertise, but I think this is the first Monster can I've seen where they clearly label the caffeine content as 70 milligrams per 8fl. oz. and 140 milligrams per 16 fl. oz. For anyone doing the math, that means this whole can has less caffeine than a brewed cup of premium coffee half its size. A paper on caffeine and your body published on the FDA website states that the average adult consumes 200 milligrams per day, and that some coffees have 150 milligrams in 5fl. oz. (more than this entire Monster). The document sheepishly states that 100-200mg is "the limit some doctors suggest", meanwhile, we've never seen any scientific evidence to validate this statement for the general populous. So, will this Monster kill you? Sadly, probably not.

I like that it's pretty carbonate, it does taste light and refreshing, as the can's "We want to relive the Bones Brigade days" motivational text indications. It's fruity, and the artificial sweetener flavor is not pronounced, nor is their a horrendous aftertaste, which I sometimes encounter with sugar free drinks. It's fruity, but I can't place the fruit. Overall, I find it enjoyable, perhaps the best of their sugar free/lo-carb offerings.

The regular price on these at the C-store we acquired them was $2.49. No way on earth I'm paying that for any Monster drink. The sale price was 2/$3, so probably, somewhere, at any given time, you can buy Monster Ultra Blue for $1.50, but at full retail price, they normally cost $2-$2.50, at least on the East Coast of the US. I'm giving this a good value rating, only at $1.50. I'd give it a 3 or 4 out of 10 at $2.50.

Monster Energy Ultra Blue can or bottle design and textual information
Monster Energy Blue Ultra comes in a can very much like Zero Ultra, only the white and blue are switched. The can is textured and has some whimsical designs cut in, which involve the Monster claw logo. The text on the front reads, "Zero Sugar + Zero Calories" x2, Monster claw logo, front and center, then "Monster Energy Ultra Blue". In the bottom left, "Energy Drink", "16fl. oz. (473ml)". On the back, and I always feel ridiculous even typing these stupid paragraphs printed on the back of the can, "Aspen, Chamonix, Park City, Whistler, Mammoth...the list goes on. The competition & training circuit has taken the team on some epic snow trips. In honor of these mountain towns comes Ultra Blue", (I typed "glue" at first, and though, "Ultra Glue would be an awesome product"), ok back to the Monster drivel, "Best served ice cold from the frosty can, Ultra Blue is a little less sweet and lighter-tasting with zero calories and a full-load of our Monster energy blend. From first chair to last call...Unleash the Ultra Beast".
