Jolt Endurance Shot: Does It Go the Distance?

Often times, I’ll go out to get a Red Bull just for a light pick-me-up. With a lower caffeine concentration, it doesn’t do much to me or anyone with a high tolerance. As well, a single can cannot be relied on to give you a huge, immediate boost when doing important tasks, such as when you’re at work.

A new wave of products known as energy shots came to fill in the demand for high energy, in no time and that’s exactly what Jolt Endurance Shot does. Nevertheless, can this bombshell from a soda company compete with other established instant-energy products?

Flavor

Jolt Endurance Shot has a very distinct and overpowering grape taste. Its analogy could be a sweet, grape cough syrup. It’s not something to savor and they’re called shots for a reason, to be downed with haste. Using sucralose as a sweetener, the absurdly high amount of caffeine is only somewhat concealed from the taste buds. It is very similar to 5 Hour Energy.

Ingredients

Cramming standard energy drink ingredients into a ridiculously small bottle (2.0oz/60ml), Jolt Endurance Shot easily surpasses concentrations in the typical 16oz drink format (Monster, Rockstar, etc.). An absolutely explosive 200mg of caffeine, plus the usual and some unusual vitamins and amino acids like L-Leucine, puts this shot close to the top of the mg/oz podium, rivaling shots like Powershot (100mg/oz). Excited to be the guinea pig, I am certain that this shot contains an exuberant amount of power.

Energy

It is no surprise that this shot hit me harder than a freight train. I can only imagine what a shot like Ammo or Redline would do! Downing it on an empty stomach, I felt the effects within 5 minutes and felt as if I could perform tasks twice as fast. I felt like doing work and ideally this would be a perfect shot for the situations when you can’t sleep like LAN gaming or truck driving. This shot means business.

Jolt Endurance Shot provides a serious energy blast backed by very high amounts of caffeine, vitamins, and amino acids. However, this is a serious shot, not a casual drink like Jolt’s other offerings. If you absolutely must endure the fatigue and exertion of the night, or a tough job, this is the liquid you need.

    I first got the Jolt up in New York, around Rochester. As soon as I saw it I new I had to try it. The flavor is exactly like a concord grape, and though strong is perfect for the short durration it actually is in your mouth. It would be great mixed with a shot of vodka, if you are into that sort of thing. The energy level was excellent.

    I tried this before I was told to get off the caff. It was like a grape like cough medicine. It also had an almost alcohol like bite after. Like a Sour Puss type liquor. I then mixed a second one with some Ginger Ale and boy it does good.
