This post is a review of Monster Energy’s Mutant Soda in the White Lightning flavor.
I ran across this soda at the store and was intrigued, as I am a fan of Monster Energy drinks and had not heard of this soda before, so I figured I would give it a try.
As you can tell from the picture, this is a 20 ounce soda in fairly standard packaging – nothing too spectacular in those terms. It cost $1.00 USD, so about the cost of any other 20 ounce soda on its own.
I gave it a try today so here is my review:
The soda has less carbonation that most other sodas on the market. Without significant carbonation, the soda was fairly smooth and easy to drink. I also was able to get the familiar taste of Monster Energy drink in the favoring, so in that regard, it was a good spin on the popular original taste. I taste almost had a citrusy start, and a slightly sour-y finish, and it reminded me a little bit of a SunKist soda, which has the taste of an orange as its base.
Overall, I thought it was OK, but did not find it spectacular or particularly unique.
I give it a 3 out of 5 Steem.
Give this mediocre rating, I would definitely say it did not live up to the “white lightning” name – which is an outlaw con whiskey, not aged in a barrel, and famous in the US as illegally brewed and sold moonshine.
Thank you for reading, and let me know if you have ever tried this soda or the real “white lightning”.
