Monster Zero Ultra Energy Drink
Monster Zero Ultra is the company’s 4th low/no calorie addition to their energy drink line.
However, this drink seems to be clearly marketed to female Monster fans. The can says that “our team riders and our Monster girls had been dropping hints on what they want” and there is definitely a feminine design on the white can.
Could Zero Ultra be Monster’s attempt at competing with the popular Rockstar Pink?
I grabbed a can at my local 7-Eleven to see what Zero Ultra had to offer.
If Squirt Were an Energy Drink….
I couldn’t believe how much Monster Zero Ultra tasted like Squirt Soda. If you aren’t familiar with Squirt, it’s a grapefruit/ citus flavored soda.
When I used to drink soda Squirt was one of my favorites, so Zero Ultra’s flavor is a win with me. It’s light, refreshing, and they did a great job covering up the energy ingredients. The artificial sweeteners were blended well with just a slight after-taste.
I could have stood it a little less sweet, perhaps more like Fresca, but I imagine the sweetness is needed to cover the bitternes of the caffeine.
Monster Zero Ultra is a Tamer Beast
No surprises in the ingredient profile of Zero Ultra and it contains both Sucralose and Ace-K to round out its sweet taste.
As far as energy is concerned, Zero Ultra doesn’t have the same amount of energy blend as a Regular Monster does. Zero Ultra clocks in at 1400mg per serving or 2800mg per can. This is the same as Monster Absolutely Zero and puts the caffeine content at 140mg per can.
With no sugar and less caffeine, this energy drink provides a smooth, even lift, with no sugar crash. Zero Ultra didn’t provide a huge buzz, but it did give me a nice lift for my afternoon.
Girl or guy, I think Monster Zero Ultra is a good tasting energy drink for folks that love the energy, but hate all the sugar in standard energy drinks.
The Ultra Line
This drink has birthed an entire new line of drinks for Monster. There are 3 Ultras on the market and soon to be 4 with Ultra Red.
