Well friends, there are five new Monster flavors hitting stores in the coming weeks and, sadly, none of them are named Mike Wazowski. But that is the only sad part, because it’s actually five new, intriguing, and unique flavors of Monster Energy drink and I can’t wait to try them all. Definitely not at the same time though, because then the real monster will be caffeine-drunk me rocking back and forth on the couch, pupils dilated, reciting all of Kung Fu Panda (the 2008 cinematic masterpiece) and all the digits of pi. So, for those of you who, like Miss RiRi herself, are friends with the monster that’s under your bed—and that monster happens to be a flat of Monster Energy drinks, then you are in luck because you are about to learn exactly what all the new Monster flavor options will be in this, 2024, the year of our Monster energy drinks.
Are they all one line of new Monster flavors? Are there any revamps of old flavors? If none are named Mike Wazowski, is there at least one named Sully?
Unfortunately, this just in, none named Sully either—sorry to the Monsters Inc. fans out there. But for the energy drink fans out there, we can report that there are some legitimately new Monster flavors coming soon, as well as a couple of new Monster Energy flavors that seem like a revamps of old flavors. The five flavors Monster is releasing are: Monster Energy Ultra Fantasy Ruby Red, which will be ruby red grapefruit flavored and zero sugar; Juice Monster Rio Punch, which will have tropical fruit flavors and a subtle hint of spice; Java Monster Irish Crème which is supposedly different from Irish Blend, according to Monster, but we can’t yet say how it is different; Rehab Monster Green Tea, which could be a potential revamp of the discontinued Monster Green Tea Rehab; and Monster Reserve Peaches N’ Crème which is exactly what is sounds like, peaches and crème flavored Monster (with taurine, according to the can image). These are all set to roll out nationwide over the next few weeks.
So get your energy drank drinkin’ hands ready because, much like Kylie Jenner, “I feel like this year is really about like, the year of just realizing stuff” and we may just realize that one of these new Monster flavors is our new favorite…maybe. Pipeline Punch—Sporked‘s current favorite Monster flavor—is going to be hard to dethrone, but who knows? Will Rio taste like a tiki bar mocktail? Will that push it over the top? I will have to wait and find out as soon as it hits stores near me.
