Monster "Hit-Man" Energy Shots - are they still around?

Post by BullOnParade » Fri Apr 15, 2016 5:00 pm

So a few years ago, I bought a few of these little energy drinks to store in my kits/in my car. They're small, light weight, and effective. The problem is, they don't seem to sell them (in Ontario) anymore.

Do they sell these in your AO? Can I pay you to pick up a case and ship it to me? I really hate the taste of 5 hour energy, and don't want to store full cans of energy drink in my car/kits.

Dont know but Walmart around here sells RipIts in min size
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother

Sam's Club used to carry them, but apparently not anymore. Seems like they aren't in production anymore. There are [rl=http://smile.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_nos ... ergy+shots]several other options to choose from[/url] including some that are teas and/or "orgainic". A lot of them seem to have good reviews, so, there's that.

The problem with Monster is that given they are such a large company, they can push out new products all the time, but of they don't sell - they are gone.

Usually an immediate sign they are dropping a product is when it shows up at Dollar stores.

I used to love their espresso drink in the 8 Oz can, but it slowly disappeared from stores. A huge stock of it ended up at my Dollar store and then it was out of production.

As mentioned before, Rip It is a good alternative and a better value. Their products are stocked all over the place here. I haven't tried any of the "shots" yet, but from time to time I'll grab a can of their energy drinks. Some are bad, some are good. Still a good buy.
