    I STARTED GOING TO SUBWAY IN THE MORNINGS AND DRINKING THE FOUNTAIN DR PEPPER, WHERE I HAD BEEN DRINKING THE CANNED. AFTER A FEW DAYS I STARTED HAVING BAD NECK AND HEAD ACHES, SWITCHED BACK TO THE CANS, THE SYMPTOMS WENT AWAY. A FRIEND TOLD ME THAT THE CAFFEINE IS DIFFERENT IN THE FOUNTAIN AND THE CANS. ALSO, I HAVE NOTICED THE LAST FEW YEARS THAT THE CAFFEINE ON THE INGREDIENT LIST ON CANNED POP HAS GONE FROM SECOND FROM THE TOP TO THE BOTTOM. I THINK WE ARE BEING MANIPULATED, TO DRINK MORE POP OR BUY THE ENERGY DRINKS WITH MORE CAFFEINE.
    THIS IS ON TOP OF BEING POISONED BY THE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP.

    Please sir please don’t type in all caps. We promise we’ll still read your message.

  • ecw

    oz are such a stupid unit of measure. Please, feel ashamed of yourself.

  • Ted

    please tell that to the US government. The vast majority of our site’s traffic come from the US.

  • Bill Cleary

    U are fat and dumb

  • matty33

    How much caffeine is in 2 liters of Pepsi?

  • Ted

    have a look at our database https://www.caffeineinformer.com/caffeine-content/pepsi-cola and adjust the size

  • Vivian McNeil

    Right. Tell it to the government. The entire system of weights and measures in my beloved country is archaic. But the people trying to find the caffeine content of Mt Dew on this website aren’t really in any position to change it. So I suggest you get an app that figures out the equilivants, if you can’t do it yourself. No harm intended by my reply.

  • Brad Porter

    You can get it (Bubba Cola) at Save-A-Lot.

  • william zito

    Jolt Cola, anyone remember it. The ad say’s, All the sugar and twice the caffeine as regular Cola’s. Not on the list. ???

    Thanks for the list – didn’t realize the large amount of caffeine in cola. I don’t drink coffee/tea, but on occasion do drink coke. Now I know why I get withdrawal headaches for a few days due to caffeine in coke.

  • Anthony

    Thank you so much for this, I have been having headaches, trouble sleeping and dizziness the last couple of days because of drinking two cans of Sunkist per day. I’ll be sure now to stick with water.

    And they just re-launched it! Check here to find near you at Dollar General stores! https://www.joltcola.com/buy/locations

  • DOCS

    This is absolute B.S. since Mountain Dew is not on the list….

  • Ted

    Mountain Dew isn’t a COLA.
