Monster M3 Energy Drink Review

Monster M3So Monster Energy continues rolling out new drinks and their newest this M3 Energy Drink breaks all the Monster molds.

First it’s in a bottle, a GLASS bottle. Also it’s small, only 5oz, but a shot it isn’t. This Monster M3 is a “super concentrated Monster madness that packs a 16oz punch into only 5oz”.

The label easily explains the explosiveness of the contents, “Grab an M3 glass, and kick some ass”. So now you have my attention Monster, but can the contents back all the labeling?


First of all, let me help you out, the lid is not, I repeat NOT a twist off, so now as my hand bleeds from trying to twist it off, let’s taste the inside. After finally getting the lid off, I got a familiar scent, which was a lot like Absolute Zero. The taste of M3 Energy Drink was a lot like Original Monster, yet a bit sweeter, which I think improves it over the Original.

Also the liquid itself is a bit thicker then you would normally find with an energy drink. Yes it is carbonated, but Monster M3 Energy Drink uses the Nitrous technology instead of the usual CO2 carbonation taste and feel. The sweetness level is real good and the thickness of the drink makes it go down real smooth.

Monster M3 Ingredients

Yes the bottle is only 5 oz, but Monster seemed to jam a lot into that tiny M3 bottle. 2000mg of taurine is a good start, along with 400mg panax ginseng and energy blend of 5000mg! Yes, 5000mg made up of guarana, inositol, glucuronolactone , L-carnitine, glucose, and maltodextrin and 160 mg Caffeine. On top of all that, they managed to fit in 100% of your Vitamin B2, B3, B6 and B12. All that with just 13g of sugar and 60 total calories.


The kick that Monster M3 delivered is just what I expected, intense. It’s been a long time since I felt a rush like that M3 gave me. The buzz was full on about 10 minutes after finishing the bottle. It felt like a sugar loaded jittery rush, yet it did last a bit longer than normal sugar based energy drinks. The effects lasted about 4 hours before just disappearing as quickly as it came, and guess what… no crash either!

Monster M3 Verdict

As for energy drinks, M3 Energy Drink may be as close to a perfect energy drink as you may find. First the look of the bottle is real cool. Second, it tastes great and with it only being 5 oz, you can quickly drink it without feeling full or bloated. Thirdly, it provided a high intensity rush that is more than enough to power you through anything you will face. I think Monster really put there time and research into Monster M3 Energy Drink and it shows. Great job!

    This drink is amazing! I have tried every monster out there including the rehabs that they don’t have on here yet, and by far this is one of my favorites

  • Hollie

    I love this energy shot. I have to say it’s very hard to find. I have to travel around 30 miles to find even 1 left in the gas stations. I’ve never seen any stores carry them either. Is it that popular?

  • june white

    where to but monster in a glass bottle in mooresville n.c.

  • benneh

    these are very delicious and also the newer ones being made are twist offs. i was surprised as hell when i saw threading after i pried the cap off.

  • David

    I just picked up a few bottles and it is, I repeat, IS a twist off cap.

  • Matt

    With all the allegations going around linked to the five deaths is this drink more explosive than the other drinks? Wouldn’t Monster have to tone it down with all the allegations instead of producing a more powerful concentrated drink?

  • Gofie

    Okay I haven’t tried this one but I had just had the über monster energy drink. And I have to say its amazing. Anyways I can’t wait to try the M3. It’s really hard to find cause I only found ONE uber monster drink in a gas station 30 miles away from where I live …

  • Steph Calls

    First of all get your facts straight…it is a twist off cap, just need to quit being a baby…second off the Calories are only 50 not 60. you are terrible at reviews my friend.

  • Vinny

    I just picked up 2 bottles of this from the local gas station. While inspecting the bottle i saw there was white worm like things floating around as well as little specs of white stuff. Any idea what this is?

  • Matthew Milder

    BTW…it is a twist off. I didn’t think it was either, but if you put a shirt or towel on your hand (to protect it from the metal ridges), it does twist right off…but, I will give you, it is a bit harder to twist off than most other bottled drinks.

  • Eulers Ghost

    Rockstar 2X has low calories and 320mg of caffeine…plus it’s cheaper.

  • Ian

    where did you get it?

  • Jaredtt

    What ever happened to not complaining and getting a bottle opener.



  • Ted

    It’s a caffeine crash and if you aren’t drinking water as well M3 will dehydrate you since it’s concentrated caffeine in a small amount of liquid. This also can increase feelings of fatigue.
