Packaging

Monster comes in verious types of packaging, ranging from size to color. The various sizes include 8.4 oz., 16 oz., 24 oz., and 32 oz. The "Heavy Metal" flavor only comes in 32 oz.


The color and design of the can are determined by the flavor. For example "Khaos" is orange and "Mixxd" is purple. The color os the tabs are also determined by the flavor in the same way, although bigger cans all have the same silver tab and all java cans have a black tab.


Some monster cans feature a twist on cap intead of a tab. the 32 oz. and 8.4 oz. cans do not come with a cap.


Monster also comes in four packs, and eight packs. These usually offer a deal. For example a four pack would cost as much as three individual cans.


Flavors

Various flavors of Monster.

When Monster debut in 2002, the available flavors were "original", "Lo-Carb" , "Assault", and "Khaos". The "original" is packaged in a with a green color scheme, while "Lo-Carb" is packaged with a blue color scheme. "Assault" an assorted berry flavor, and is in a red, camo designed can. "Khaos" has a citris flavor, and is packaged in an orange can.


Sometime later, "M-80" was introduced. It was packaged with a yellow color scheme. It had a mix of tropical and citris flavors. This flavor was introduced along with slightly bigger cans, termed BFC (big fuckin' can). The BFC contained 32 oz. of the drink, in comparison to the normal 16-24 oz.


After the release of the BFC and "M-80", Monster introduced a new line of the drink called "Monster Java". These were all coffee flavored. There were three types at the time. They were "Mean Bean", "Big Black", and, "Loca Moca".


In early 2008, two new flavors, "Mixxd" and "Heavy Metal" were introduced. "Heavy metal" only comes in a 32 oz. can, even bigger than the BFC. It comes in a neon green can, and has a green apple taste, only slightly different form that of the original flavor. "Mixxd" is packaged in purple cans and has a grape flavor.


During this time monster expanded their Java Line by adding "Russian", "Irish Blend" , "Nut Up", "Lo-Ball", and "Chai High". This brings the "Java" variety to a total of eight variants.
