  • Anyone try Rockstar Punched yet?

    If so, how is it? Does it live up to the BevNet Review? We don't yet have it in my area as far as I have seen.

          You have been a smart a$$ lately. I think you need "sum poosie". Seriously!
          Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

              Pretty good, but not as Boo Koo's fruit punch. Still one of the better Rockstar entries as of late: Energy Drink Reviews: Rockstar Punched Energy Review

                Had one yesterday

                It was ok but man it was super sweet to me. I had to drink some water afterwards. Not something I would buy again. Would probably cover up the taste of alcohol well though.

                  I got a Hawaiian Punch type taste from it, though it seemed a little watered down. I bet it would go good with alcohol, as has been said before.

                    Another Flavor ?

                    Rockstar needs another flavor like Tom Brady needs another wide receiver.

                      It seems that Rockstar's last minute rush to catch up with Monster's better SKUs is full of inconsistencies and lacks originality.

                      The "metal plate" background, which characterizes the Juiced lineup, was also used in Zero Carb, which doesn't contain any juice.

                      The cans have always featured the words "Better. Faster. Stronger." I just took a look at their website and they are using the tagline "Bigger. Better. Faster. Stronger." which was obvuously ripped off Kanye West's popular song these days. Also, the Sweepstakes section uses the tagline "Feeling lucky, punk?" which is ripped off Jim Carey's (very old) movie "The Mask".

                      The new Punched version, although just another flavor, is the first to deviate from the standard can layout and to list the key "energy" ingredients around the neck of the can, just like Monster and all the others.

                      Overall, a big fat zero to Rockstar for consistency and originality. Consumers may not analyze these marketing details the way I just did, but they "feel" when a brand is cool and original. I think the gap between Monster and Rockstar will continue to grow.

                        Dude Man,

                        Don't you think you would be much better off if you just replied to every post in the following way..

                        "Monster is the best, everything else out there sucks, especially Rockstar.."

                        If you want to talk about a company "ripping off" off another company how about you start with Monster ripping off the 16oz energy package concept from ROCKSTAR.

                          I tried Rockstar Punched about a week ago - actually, I split it with my husband (the caffeine content was pretty high for me - 240 mg). Anyway, I really enjoyed it. I thought it had a nice fruit punch base and wasn't overly carbonated. Solid entry, IMO.

                            And for the record "Feeling Lucky Punk" is not from the Mask..it may have been in that movie too but it was originally from Clint Eastwood in "Dirty Harry".. you should check your facts before spewing false venom all over the board.

                            Did Rockstar borrow a famouse qoute to promote a new item? Yes, but who cares? it's called marketing. BTW I googled "Unleash the Beast" and found 1,000's of uses of that phrase (many of which were PRE monster). people in glass houses...tisk tisk..now go back to your chanting.."MONSTER, MONSTER, MONSTER"

                              RSF and Dude it looks like one of you chants(works) for either company and you both make good points, Rockstar is the enovator of the 16oz catergory at the same time Rockstar has become the follower once leading and having an edge over monster now rockstar trails monster even though rockstar has the edge with the stronger distributor network (coke) which i've heard rumors the marriage isn't goig to well.....rockstar has alot of potencial to strive as the number they used to be 1 but is coke holding rockstar from taking on an agressive marketing stragedy like Monster has?? there are alot of questions you both have great points but what it comes down to is not phrases used or which can has what scheme or background...its about MARKETING AND NUMBERS
