Rockstar Recovery is, as most “recovery” drinks are, a blend of energy and hydration elements, including caffeine, electrolytes, vitamins, and a proprietary blend of herbal ingredients. Featuring 3 percent lemon juice, the product has a very natural and enjoyable lemon flavor that’s delivered in a non-carbonated format. It’s sweetened with sugar, ace-k, and sucralose, which makes it have a very natural tasting level of sweetness, only 20 calories per can, and minimal sweetener aftertaste. Functionally, it has a cocktail of energy ingredients (including 160 mg of caffeine per can) and added electrolytes. In our tests, the product definitely has some kick to it – and it’s pretty hydrating. However, it’s hard to say how this product will perform against other hydration products. Packaging is a 16 oz. can that’s been given a bright yellow paint job as well as a glossy black coat on the top of the can. There’s a lot for the eye to digest, but overall, we like the execution of the package. Overall, we really like this product, including its flavor, function, and packaging.
