    Why do I love the taste of Monster

    I just cracked open my first can of lo-carb Monster in a few months. The first swallow was delicious. I cannot understand what I love so much about this drink, unless it's just the caffeine addiction talking. Incidentally, I ONLY drink the sugar-free versions of Monster and Red Bull because I find the sugar in regular version is what causes the crash; but the lo-carb versions provide a smooth, almost undetectable takeoff and landing.

    From freshman year to november of junior year, I would seriously have a few monsters every week. And as my blood pressure became 20 above normal / normal, I was like uh-oh, and quit drinking them cold turkey. It's gone down to 2 above normal / normal (as I also lost a ton of body fat within that time from november to now) but I think giving up sodas and energy drinks is one of the best things I did for a part of my health.

    Monster Lo-Carb kicks the crap out of every other diet energy drink I've tried. The only thing I disagree with you on is with the comedown, it's pretty much the second worst comedown (aside from the regular Monster)

    Oh, really? I always have a really smooth landing with the lo-carb. Whereas sugar drinks make me crash.

    Haha, I remember that thread.

    This was taken about a year ago...



    It's probably been atleast six months since I've had any beverage from an aluminum can. I see so many people drinking energy drinks during class. I'm glad I quit. I get my caffeine from two cups of coffee every morning.

    These days I drink a Monster every now and then. I think what makes it addictive is the vitamin B12.

    I think b12 is only absorbed best sublingually. None of this in the food nonsense.

    True, but I doubt the local health store would stock "special pharmaceuticals."
