Rockstar is back with a new line of flavours. Rockstar Supersours. I imagine that it will perform as other Rockstars typically do and that there will be nothing new to see excluding the taste which I am quite excited for. The can design is nothing new either, the usual Rockstar design and size is present.
Rockstar Supersour Green Apple contains the usual Rockstar blend, nothing new here. It has 160mg of caffeine, 2000mg of taurine, 50mg of panax ginseng root, 50mg of guarana seed extract and 40mg of milk thistle seed extract. Rockstar Supersours will also give you 170% of your daily value of niacin, 220% of your vitamin B6, 600% of your vitamin B12 and 290% of your pantothenic acid. Supersours are unlike the XDurance or Recovery line in the sense that they are not calorie reduced (this is 280 calories) and still packed with sugar, 63g of it. Hopefully, this sugar doesn’t mean a crash later.
It works like any other Rockstar would. I prefer Recovery/Iced/XDurance to this due to the lack of sugar which I believe to be what causes the crash but with that said, the crash was very minimal. Rockstar typically performs well in this catergory and this is no different. If you drink this, you’ll have energy, no questions.
Green Apple smells like sour candy even compared to the Inked Energy Druidic. It smells very sweet, quite a nice smell actually. The taste is more sour than Druidic for sure as it should be but it isn’t anything extreme. It is lightly carbonated, the flavour remains consistent throughout the drink, even in the aftertaste it is just a green apple flavour. It is pretty good and there are no surprises here.
I’d be more likely to buy this over other normal Rockstars due to the taste being great but I would be unlikely to buy it over XDurance, Iced or Recovery as they are lower in calories, lack sugar which means no crashing later and I prefer the lack of carbonation in them. However, with that said, this works almost as well and since the crash was very minimal, so minimal that it just may just have been that I am not used to it now, that I would still highly recommend this drink. It is a great new flavour and the rest is nothing new and is what we have come to expect from Rockstar, which is a very good thing.
