Review for Monster Nitrous--Super Dry

NOTE:  This is my second time trying Monster Nitrous—Super Dry.  The first time I had this drink, I had a serious headache, and I felt like crap.  I took two aspirin with this drink, and the second I finished, I crashed on the bed and was asleep within the minute.  Now, I know you’re probably thinking that this product, being an energy drink, should keep that from happening, and that’s what I thought at first.  I was ready to write a review that I thought would be appropriately scathing, but when that time rolled around, I was uncomfortable.  I started to doubt whether I had given this drink an appropriate trial—I had given it all of 60 seconds to work, and had taken it at a time when I’m not sure that lighting my pants on fire would have kept me awake.  In the end, I decided that the experience was indeed a mistrial, that the drink deserved a fair chance.  Below is the review for my second time drinking Monster Nitrous—Super Dry.


160 mg


I see the Nitrous line just about everywhere, even though I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody actually buy one.  I wonder…are they so common because stocks are never depleted?  In the end, I’m not sure.  Either way, you should never have problems finding this or any other Monster Nitrous product.


The Monster Nitrous cans have a nice look to them, with a sort of anarchic appearance being the trend, as though the designers had indeed “Unleash[ed] the Beast”—the Monster M is at an angle, and the background motif is loud and chaotic.  In the case of Monster Nitrous—Super Dry, the background is a sort of light, pale green with a crackled appearance, with the aforementioned Monster M in the foreground.


The thing about the Monster Nitrous line that stands out most is the use of nitrous oxide in addition to carbon dioxide as a carbonating agent.  This difference first manifest itself when I opened the can—the gas escaped with such force that I was worried that it was about to blow up on me.  It didn’t, however, so I set to drinking it.  The taste is quite pleasant—notably fizzier than most beverages, with a mild citrus (I’m thinking lime) flavor and an exceptionally smooth texture.


Alright.  So here’s the part I was worried about—was Monster Nitrous—Super Dry really as weak as I had supposed, or was I wrong?  Turns out I was indeed wrong, though not to a significant degree.  The effect was similar to a lot of the Monster Energy beverages—it didn’t really wake me up, but it did keep me from falling asleep over my history homework.


It’s hard to tell how long this kept me going—once again, I wasn’t woken up, but I was kept from falling asleep.  Whatever the case, I would much prefer something longer lasting, and something with less of a crash at the finish—yes, you can still have a weak energy drink and still get a crash after the end of it.


Though better than I initially believed, Monster Nitrous—Super Dry is still some pretty weak sauce—not as bad as I thought it was, though I can definitely see how somebody feeling like crap and/or extremely tired would not experience any appreciable effect.  Still, I’m glad I drank it a second time, so I can say with certainty that it’s something you should probably pass over if you're looking for something serious about what it's supposed to be doing.

  1. This is great. I feel great after having this.

  2. BF says it tastes like orange juice. I say it tastes like Fresca. Either way, it does what I want it to. I have problems with fatigue after having Mono a couple years ago, and this stuff returns me to normal so I can actually Get Stuff Done.
