Rockstar Pure Zero Silver Ice

Rockstar Pure Zero Silver Ice

Tonight my band is playing our first show in a while. Due to a lack of sleep and printing mass amounts of shirts all day I am exhausted and was looking for a pick me up for a late night. Of course the only energy drink I had on deck is by Rockstar, so even though I could have drunk it and not mentioned a thing I will let the world know that it made me feel like a turd drinking this when I have a show. I feel like the type of person that drinks these before they play are also the same people who would wear Affliction clothing, and have fifteen minute drum solos in their sets. I call for no nonsense and while I enjoy the taste of most Rockstar beverages, I kind of hate the name and can imagine annoying people referring to each other as “rock star” and that is something that chills me.

All valley girl voices aside, this is way better than anticipated. The inclusion of sucralose in any beverage, even when paired with erythritol is generally bad news. In here it’s not too bad, well as long as you don’t let it warm up. I don’t know how to describe what I would expect “silver ice” to taste like, but this drink is pretty accurate. It’s very crisp and somehow tastes clean. Sure there’s a bit of diet in there, but it doesn’t ruin the drink. It also doesn’t taste like a typical energy drink, diet or regular. It kind of has a lemon-lime flavor, but not really. It is its own beast and I’m into it. My name is Jason Draper and I approve this zero calorie energy drink.

Why is it these days that when energy drink companies decide to make add a diet version to their line that uses either erythritol or stevia it has a fruit punch flavor? Why not just go with your flagship flavor, and not something that is not a staple in your line? Are people out there really clamoring so much for new fruit punch drinks, especially those of the diet variety?

This isn’t all that terrible for a diet fruit punch, but as a friend pointed out, if you can’t take the sugar, leave the punch on the shelf. It doesn’t matter how many pennies you throw in the wishing well, it will never taste the way you want it to. Luckily for everyone involved this is a Hawiian Punch style fruit punch, but more of the classic not a mouthful of syrup variety.

Here are a few final thoughts for you that are a bit disjointed. Fruit punch is a beverage for children. Children shouldn’t consume energy drinks. Energy drinks shouldn’t be flavored like fruit punch. Diet and fruit punch have no place together. This doesn’t make me want to die drinking it, yet I stand by my previous statements.
