I was sure they had added a different flavoring in it but I was told it is the same. I thought it tasted different but I do not drink e drinks so I wasn't sure. It should be released in the next week or two nationally for the summer.

The flavor is said to be cherry-vanilla...

The can says Yerba Mate and No Fear doesn't have any. So it can't be 100% the same as No Fear.

Is this drink just a limited time thing, or will they be keeping the product? I have noticed that this is not the same as SoBe No fear, not only does it taste different (MUCH better to me) but the ingredients are also different, as well as the amount of calories, ect.

I am hooked on this drink, seems to give me a nice boost, but I can't seem to find it in the store anymore (maybe its sold out, I'm hoping its not discontinued already). There is no information about it on the SoBebev site either. Its a great drink, I'd like to see it continued, even if under a different name.

Any info apprectiated, thanks.

Sobe "Superman" is going to be a limited additon from information I have received. It is a cherry vanilla flavored No Fear. It was supposed to hit shelves May 1 but I don't knwo if all the plants that had it obeyed this. Keep your cans when you do get it, as they will be sure collector items.

Saw one a week or two ago at some random gas station. I might try it later today when I venture out.

Just opened a can of it today (had it sitting in my backpack for a few days now. bought it at a Safeway) but is it just me or does it taste awfully like Koolaid powder? Maybe just bringing back reflections of Grade school when the cool thing to do was eat koolaid outta the package >.< at least this isn't giving me a stomach ache! ... yet

Smooth going down, first taste was liek fuk, this is sweet! it's incredbily sweet compared to other energy drinks i've had, but we'll see how I feel towards the middle of the day tho.

For the most part I enjoy most SoBe stuff but good lord, I absolutely hated the taste of this stuff. I guess you could say the flavor is cherry vanilla-like, but not like the familar Coke or Dr Pepper sort of taste. Its not like the flavor of No Fear at all, either.

I drank about 1/4 of it before I had to throw it away. I was a little sick this week so I was taking Robitussin PM syrup before bed and it tasted almost exactly like that.

It had that syrupy, sweet fake cherry flavor that just isn't drinkable in 16 oz, or even 8 oz form. To me it tasted just like Robitussin or Nyquil. Yuck.

I like the flavor of the Superman drink as well, everyone has different tastes though. I didn't like the taste of normal No Fear, but No Fear Gold seems to taste a little better (maybe smoother?), but I prefer the Superman.

It does taste like cough medicine a little though, but so does "red" soda... and I loved that stuff growing up.

Blech, this drink tastes like cherry Nyquil.

In my opinion, the worst energy drink that Sobe has put out.

I saw some at the store. I like how it says "Adult" Energy Supplement.

I have a empty can of No Fear Gold in the car, it was decent.

I bought one today and I have to admit I have yet to find a SoBe product I can drink AND enjoy.

I thought it was pretty bad. I recently tried Sobe Gold and thought it was good.

I have tried Sobe Gold, the only one I have tried, and it was pretty good. I'd like to try this tommorow.

Tried it and that is some tasty stuff! Most energy drinks (or octane beverages, as I call them)have that yummy tangy fruity taste, like melted SweeTart candies, but the Superman beverage has a DIFFERENT kind of yumminess to it -- no tang or fruitiness at all, just the smooth taste of COLA with maybe a sweet spark of vanilla. And it gives me the boost I need to stay at the top of my powers. Now, THAT is a beverage fit for a SUPERHERO (just wish they would keep it, even if only under a different name, and make a ONE-CARB version)
