Just noticed 2 new products from Rockstar Energy Drink on their website. 2 12oz variations called 2X (250mg of caffeine), and another one called Pink (Zero Carbs, Zero Sugar). No information on either with the exception of can graphics, and a brief description on home page. I'm guessing we'll be seeing these in stores soon....

New information about these 2 products....

2X Energy- 12oz, low carb formulation (15 calories, 1 carb). 250mg of caffeine per can. I am hearing it tastes like Lo Carb Monster, only with more carbonation.

Pink- 12oz, zero carb formulation (10 calories, 0 sugar/carbs). 120mg of caffeine per can (standard). Pink Lemonade flavor. Come's packaged with a straw?

Has anyone tried these yet?

Pink Lemonade? Damnit, I might still try it though. I would love the straw too haha.

I haven't seen them in stores yet.

I found both of them last night. Do not taste too bad, and I actually got a good buzz off of the Rockstar 2X.

I was in a Chevron yesterday in Cerritos, Ca on my way to a meeting and noticed the 2 new sku's from RS. The packaging was well developed.
I am generally not a huge fan of RS but an "A" on their behalf. I have been in approx. 10 C-stores in 24 hours and have not found them since in So. Cal.

I'll have to look for these around here. Pepsi just got Rockstar a few months ago, it was still being distributed by Canada Dry - Philadelphia Coke never picked up Rockstar - they went with Monster a long time ago.

Canada Dry still has it in two counties in MD, since the indie Pepsi distributor has no interest in it (I was told that Rockstar wanted them to carry the full line, and they don't have the space for all of it).

I noticed an espresso can on the home page with the Roasted cans... Anyone had that?

I tried the Espresso when I was in San Francisco earlier last year, and thought it tasted horrible! I remember not being able to finish it...

In fact, I've never seen Espresso in Texas or any states on the East coast, which leads me to believe it's only sold on the West coast...? You aren't missing anything except a bad taste in your mouth!:D

These 2 are becoming difficult to find, I seriously want them for review.

If you have a Jewel near you, go there.

No Jewels in North Georgia, the only places that get new drinks are the Chevrons

They have them in the Denver and Ft Collins areas in Colorado as well as Cheyenne here in Wyoming. They have them 2 for $3. The 2x wasn't bad but is not my favorite. The pink one tastes just as you'd expect a no sugar no carbs drink to taste.

Rockstar 2x:
3 out of 5

Rockstar Pink:
1 out of 5

I reviewed the 2x and thought it tasted too sweet and artificial. I did not like it at all. I tried the pink yesterday and enjoyed the flavor. Kind of like a diet sprite with some berry flavor. If I want a strong Rockstar I'd go with the zero carb which taste much better. My daughter emailed from out of state to tell me the pink was her new favorite.

Just wait for the two new Rockstar Recovery flavors coming out in the a month or two..grape and orange ;-).

I liked both of these new editions...above average and the rockstar pink really suprised me.

Grape and Orange?

I'll buy those ASAP as well. Still haven't tried these two new ones yet

Sounds great. I usually like Rockstar drinks and the Pink was very good. The 2x not so much. Grape and orange hydration drinks sound like winners

Not sure what part of ND you are in, but we started carrying it a week ago (eastern ND), and we're already out in the warehouse. We didn't get much to start with, which usually means we have another "dog" on our hands. However, on my route it's selling fast. Most places that got it initially are already out. Tried the Pink stuff and it's ok. Tastes alot like the zero carb in my opinion. Have yet to try the 2x, and haven't heard anything about it.

Agreed. But it seems to pack a decent punch.

Since starting this thread I've been able to try 2X, and Pink a few times now. I enjoyed both of them at first, but after having them a couple of times, 2X is really starting to taste too artificial to me. Pink is still a good one for me, because its extends the "recovery lemonade" formula, and makes it its own. I just have trouble going into a store, and buying one for myself, unless my girlfriend is in the car, and I can say shes drinking it...good stuff. (no offense for those guys who drink Pink out in the open, through the attached straw)

The pink one was pretty good. I drank it way too fast to really savor the taste though, but luckily I have another can and I'll try it again soon. Love the straw addition though. :)

It did give me a decent energy kick, couldn't fall asleep haha.
