Monster Mutant Soda Review

Monster's new product its most unique and its most uninspired; Mutant Super Soda. Separate from any in the brand, this neon green potation is an obvious attempt to knock Pepsi's Mtn Dew out of first place from caffeinated soda market. But the bottle here is so brazen, from its curvy bottle to its coloring, not just of Mtn Dew but also of the effervescent relics like MDX or Vault, with their promises of feeling "energized" and all that corporate puffery.

First sip is astonishingly familiar, an initially refreshing but entirely trite cross between Mtn Dew and Coca-Cola's Sprite. Grapefruit and lime are the dominates here, with an underbelly of lemon and a touch of pineapple. It is a less congruous potable than its adversary, with each fruit tasted after one another, instead of as one, with the blunt seams holding the flavor together by a threadbare thread. Sweetness, seventy grams of it, all high fructose corn syrup, is overbearing, establishing an egregiously syrupy experience that only thickens as sips are taken. There is actually less sugar here than its main competitor, seven grams less, but with the same amount of calories, Mutant stands as a missed opportunity to create a gut-friendly Dew corrival.

Each twenty ounce bottle contains 290 calories and 115 milligrams of caffeine, more than Mtn Dew's 91. But it is far from a noticeable bump, and just makes you wish you had drank an energy drink over this retread energy soda.

This tastes good cold. I tasted lime, but no orange.
