RATING: 7.3 OUT OF 10.

      First of all, I'd like to apologize for not reviewing anything for nearly 2 months. I have been on quite a long review hiatus, but rest assured this site has not been discontinued. Not yet, at least. I won't review products nearly as often as I used to based on the lack of samples and the absence of new products at my local grocery store. However, I did manage to find one drink that I haven't evaluated yet: Rockstar SuperSours Green Apple. I enjoyed the blueberry flavor, so let's see if Green Apple can step up to the plate.

     If you've ever tasted any of the SuperSours drinks, the first thing you'll notice is an absence of any detectable sourness. Of course, you wouldn't want to drink anything sour so I could see the logic behind not making it a sour flavor profile. Nevertheless, it still has that sweet and tart green apple flavor reminiscent of Jolly Ranchers. If sweetness isn't your cup of tea, then I suggest you skip this one. On the other hand, anyone who loves an artificial green apple flavor will be jonesing for more of this stuff. Personally, I fall into the later category, so I happened to enjoy the flavor, even if it did taste like liquefied Jolly Ranchers.

     Inside a can of Rockstar SuperSours Green Apple we have 200 percent daily value of niacin, 200 percent daily value of vitamin b6, 200 percent daily value of vitamin b12, 200 percent daily value of pantothenic acid, 2,000 milligrams of taurine, 240 milligrams of caffeine, and an undisclosed amount of inositol, milk thistle, panax ginseng, and guarana. All things considered, this looks like your standard Rockstar blend, only with 50 percent more caffeine.

     After consuming one of these bad boys, you should feel a pretty hefty jolt of energy. With 50 percent more caffeine than your favorite energy drink (which is probably Monster), it will easily provide a much more potent effect. From my personal experience, I would say that this is definitely stronger than Monster or even the original Rockstar.

     While I don't fully understand the marketing tactics behind a drink that looks and tastes like only 13-16 year olds would consume it, I still believe that this is a pretty good energy drink. Sure, it does have some flaws, such as the flavor can get annoyingly sweet after you're 2/3rds of the way through the can. All in all though, I'd still give this drink one thumb up.
