Rockstar - New Coffee energy drinks..Anyone try them?

Apparently Rockstar has released 3 new coffee energy drinks. I saw them today at Wal-Mart after I checked out and didn't want to wait in line for another 20 minutes to buy them. It comes in three flavors (Mocha, Latte, Vanilla). Anyone try on one of these yet?

They taste alright. I drink energy drinks for the energy, not the taste. For me, the upside is that there's no carbonation.

I prefer Vitamin Water energy drinks, which are also sort of new, probably not as new.

I had one the other day and it kept me awake for 24 hours without any feeling of weariness or tiredness. And it didn't up me, it just made me awake. I even spent some of those 24 hours lying on my bed and I had no urge to pass out. It was kind of amazing. Plus they have to have less crap in them than a regular energy drink.

Do those have the same sort of "watered down juice" taste of regular Vitamin Water? Or do they have a bit more flavor? I kind of like the mellower flavor of Vitamin Water some days, but other days I want something with a bit more kick.

I'm in the middle of a Java Monster right now (big black version) and I can feel it rising in me. The taste is actually pretty good, pretty much like an above-average canned cold coffee drink.

I tried one, it was actually better than I thought it would be. It was not sickly sweet or plastic tasting like some of the other ones. (Godiva) was like pure sugar.

I had the Dark Mocha one, I would buy one again.

I wouldn't mind checking these out. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

Picked up 3 different ones at the PX shoppette today - Mean Bean, Mocha, and something "Black" - didn't see Latte or vanilla. Looking forward to trying them tonight at work.

It's non-carbonated.

I tried the Mocha one. Like a frappuccino with a little extra kick. Not too bad.
