Taste Rating Scale is 1 (absolute shite) through 10 (tastes like happy)
Taste: 10 – HELL YEAH!!! This stuff friggen rules. It is now my favorite energy drink. I could drink this stuff all god damn day. It has a great orange flavor with some very light carbonation. While Lost-Five-O was the third-world OJ, Monster-Khaos is the OJ from the plump ripe oranges straight out of a Florida orange grove that is protected by a platoon of armed guards like a Columbian drug lords cocoa farm.
After Taste: 7 – Sure, but who cares, IT TASTES LIKE HAPPY!!!!
Effects Rating Scale is 1 (water) through 10 (check in to rehab NOW!)
Energy Boost: 7 – I could not believe the boost this nectar of the gods gave me. I was on my way to a double session of training and felt like turning the car around. By the time I got to class I was feeling the pump and was awake and looking forward to getting on the mat. The energy kept me up through both my gi and no-gi class for a little over 2 hours of training. I can’t put the stuff up in the “energy shot” range but it is close…damn close.
Side Effects/Crash: 1 – None.
