Can’t stand it but that is a good price however you haven’t said where?
Quality save/ home bargain?
Yeah what shop is this? Home bargains? I'd never have these unless they are the sugar free alternative (Monster Energy Ultra).

They are the smaller 355ml cans of paint stripper. Still a good price mind
Very harmful mixture of things that aren’t good for your heart or liver. I can’t believe people are stupid enough to drink it.

Hi,

Can you confirm what ingredients you are referring to here?

The Harmful ones.

The Harmful ones.



But which ones in particular? Or are you just throwing bold claims around?

From what I can see, the 'bad' ingredients in Monster are Caffeine and sugar (which are only bad in excess).

its Poundstretcher, i noticed yesterday their offer labels look suspiciously like the Star Buy labels. so wondered whether they've been bought by home bargains or its just blatant copying, but looking into it afterwards it looks to be the latter

Don't worry about it, it's completely normal for any energy drink related deals here to be attacked by people saying they're bad and giving no evidence..... Just observe from a distance
deals on wheels.........yes the caffeine, but sucrose, glucose which aren’t natural sugars, taurine which is really bad and citric acid is also detrimental to health. From what you can see, you don’t know very much apparently.......

Hence why I was asking so that I can get more understanding....
(Sucrose naturally comes from fruit and veggies by the way)
And sure, what you said is bad, but everything in moderation!
Has there been a sugar tax applied to these, or any other "energy" drink?
Deals on wheels.......sucrose is a refined sugar, hence harmful. Fructose is the sugar from fruit. We could debate further, but anyone with an ounce of nutritional knowledge will tell you that these drinks are dangerous, even in moderation I’d avoid them. But, we all have freedom of choice. For now.

Sugar is sugar, it's all harmful in large amounts. This is the reason why it's better to eat fruit rather than drink smoothies or fruit drinks.

The non natural sugars are in almost everything for starters, and your own body produces glucose, and is able to regulate it (unless obviously you binge it) so that's a moot point. Citric acid is detrimental to health? Okay, no more eating citrus fruit. Chlorine is also detrimental to health, stop drinking tap water. Taurine is really bad? Sure. Maybe it is. But that's why we have livers to break it down (again, assuming you don't go overboard like 10 cans a day).

Long story short, you're arguements are ridiculous, and it seems like you're just saying something is bad because you heard someone else say so. Make your own conclusions.

Yes, all energy drinks have been hit. Notably, original monster 500ml cans are no longer available at supermarkets, instead it's 375ml cans for the same price, but the sugar free versions are still at 500ml. Also some brands like red bull haven't changed the can size of the full-sugar drink, but it's more expensive than sugar free.

website does probably as back-stock, but unlikely you will find the single cans in store... (I may be wrong, I'm basing this on working part time at Tesco myself)

Well no because of the sugar tax.

Looking on the big 4 supermarkets, none have 375ml. Asda have single and multipacks at 500ml. Tesco have single at 440ml and multi at 500ml. Sainsburys have 500ml single and multi and morrisons have 500ml multi with singles of the doctor at 500ml. If you couldn't find them in store then they wouldn't be on the website.

Go look in store and report back

But maybe it is 440ml, not 375ml, I don't know as I'm not interested at all in the small can, all I know for sure is that it's smaller.

Nothing to look for, if the new cans were in store they'd be online.
