Rockstar Super Sours Energy Drink

rockstar-super-sour-bubbleberryRockstar Super Sours Energy Drink is yet another flavor variation from the #3 energy drink brand, Rockstar.

With all the controversy surrounding energy drinks and kids, Rockstar seems to be laughing with the launch of Super Sours.

This line is clearly marketed to kids/teens with their whimsically colored cans and kid friendly flavors like Sour Apple and Bubbleberry.

The drink officially launches in the USA on Dec. 1st, but has been available in Europe since earlier this year.

More Caffeine to Fuel the Hyperactive Child in You

Not only do the new Super Sours Energy Drinks seem to be marketed to kids, but they also have 50% more caffeine than original Rockstar.

Bevnet reports both Sour Apple and Bubbleberry have 120 milligrams per serving for a total of 240mg/16oz can. This is on par with Rockstar’s Punched line of energy drinks.

A Candy-Like Energy Drink Trend?

rockstar-super-sours-sour-appleI wonder if Super Sours will start a new candy-like energy drink trend as they compete for younger, less refined palettes. Kids want drinks that taste good and completely hide the energy ingredients. From reports so far, it seems like these new drinks have accomplished this nicely.

Rockstar needs to do something to set them apart from Monster and Red Bull who both far surpass them in sales.

However, it just seems a bit strange that in light of the ever increasing scrutiny regarding the safety of energy drinks and teens, Rockstar would develop Super Sours, which are obviously marketed to teens and those even younger.

I can’t think of any kid that wouldn’t want to get their lips on a can of Sour Apple or Bubbleberry and I pity the parent that allows that to happen!

240mg of caffeine + Sugar + Child = 1 long night.

Have you tried Rockstar Super Sours yet? What did you think of the new flavors and extra caffeine?

    I’m 14 and I love these drinks! Where I get them they only have 160mg of caffeine. In my opinion, Bubbleberry tastes better

  • Michael

    Same where I live, most gas stations stock the Rockstar’s on the very bottom shelf of the coolers. Which is a shame, I think Rockstar is the 2nd best energy drink out there.

  • Joe

    In Canada, The Supersours only have 160mg. I think this is because of the limit put on my the government. I do see drinks with more, but they are imported from the U.S.

    The Sour Apple flavor is life changing. As some commenters have said, it’s really hard to find, but I’ve even driven out of the way to grab a few cans on the way home from work. It’s INCREDIBLE.

    I am absolutely obsessed with Bubbleberry rockstar and I am furious with the company because I can hardly find it in New York. 7/11 had it for a while and after I bought their whole stock I asked them when they will restock and the retard said ” we won’t restock it because it’s not moving” What? I, myself, only bought 30 cans in the past 2 weeks!! Hess had it for a short time and that’s about it. I also ordered a couple of cases from their website. I prefer Rockstar over any other energy drink because I think their drinks are fizzier and I love carbonated drinks. Before Bubbleberry I was always drinking their zero cal ones and I was against sugar in my drunks but Bubbleberry made me get over it 🙂 I was limiting myself at 2 cans a day, that’s how crazy I am about it. So, Rockstar should have a drink locator on their website. The green apple isn’t bad either, it’s my second favorite energy drink. I also don’t get the whole ” towards kids” BS because a Monster has a bunch of nicely colored cans and no one complains about it.

    I am 35 and these are my favorite! Most energy drinks taste like butt, but these are really good!

  • This drink I so good. Usually, I have to pop a caffeine pill though. They’ve really cut back on that stuff. I’ll bomb 2 of these suckers before recess and pop a 45’er of the pill on the way back in. Man 5th grade is awesome.

    PS: I’ve got this weird twitch thing happening. Rockstar says its the water I’ve been drinking, so I’m working on completely cutting that out.

    Just got my first sour rockstar and that shit was gnarly as fuck way to overpowering till I diluted it heavily with tequila now it’s actually pretty good

  • Jackie

    I’m 30 and love the rock star super sours green apple…guess what they have discontinued it to bring these other disgusting flavors!!! Why not just keep it on the sleeves clearly I’m not the only one that lives this flavor they nailed it…now what rockstar!!! You don’t see monster and redbull taking flavors off sleeves..they just add more which if y’all were smart you would to…get the green apple back in the stores…waynesville.

    I would be gladly to and you the blueberry…if you send me the green apple!!

  • Astharteea

    Unfortunately I can’t find either flavour anywhere in New York anymore. I was in Maine 2 months ago and they had both flavors everywhere, in every store and gas station. I don’t get it! But I’ve heard the guy that owns the company is very cheap and doesn’t like investing to promote the products. Too bad!

  • kevin

    I live in Pa and I’m in the same boat as Jackie.. Bring back my sour apple… Oh and Im 36

  • if brands focus on kiddies for caffeine – not big – not clever – we advocate making any high content caffeine product to those 16 and over. http://www.firestarenergy.com

  • Christinaa Barber

    im 21 iv bought the green apple twice, loved the tartness its fantastic, id buy more but there constantly flying of the shelves where i am, whent for long skate today and figured id try the bumbleberry since it was nearly supper and i was dead tired already. So i bought bumble berry thinking it would taste like well berrys, thats what bumbleberrys are, a mixture of different berry, what i got was this super sweet bublegum flavor that was so strogn i couldn’t evan stand to finish it.

    its name ws vary misleading, they should have just called it bubblegum.
