Zero Ultra is Monster’s zero sugar and zero calorie formulation which, according to the can, also contains a lighter flavor than their previous diet efforts. To that end, we’d have to agree, with the flavor being in the same mold as classic Monster Energy, but with a much lighter mouthfeel. It’s certainly something that could be consumed much faster than some of their other products. The erythritol and sucralose blend does a nice job of sweetening the product with minimal aftertaste. Functionally, it’s more of the same, with B vitamins, taurine, ginseng, amino acids, caffeine, and gaurana making up their energy blend. Packaging is a 16 oz. can that has been given a white and silver themed design. While the packaging is very polished and looks like a part of the Monster brand, the name “Zero Ultra” isn’t overly descriptive as to what this product is all about. However, we do like the textured finish on the can, which, if you pick it up, will certainly leave a lasting impression. Overall, it’s a solid zero calorie energy drink, but it is hard to see how this will stand out from the rest of the Monster line.
