Jolt Cola Gets Even More Caffeine
It seems that Wet Planet Beverages (makers of Jolt Cola) quietly concocted a new formulation.
Check the picture here of an old and new can (thanks Steve!). Right next to the “CX2″ is 140 Jolts Caffeine (left – old can) and 220 Jolts Caffeine (right – new can).
Sure enough: a check on the Jolt site shows:
How much caffeine does JOLT have?
JOLT has the most caffeine out of any soft drink available. We are the CAFFEINE MACHINE. We know that caffeine is what gets you going, so if you drink 16 oz. of JOLT – that is equivilant to 2 cups of coffee or 2 Mountain Dews. We have 72 mgs of caffeine per serving. We are your wake up call.
So, at 72mgs per 8 ounce serving – Jolt is now the equivalent of most energy drinks – and is no longer “twice the caffeine of Cola” — it’s more like 3-4 times the caffeine.
The new formulation also contains Guarana, Taurine, and B Vitamins – just like an energy drink.
