Nectar of the gods

jolt_cx2.jpgAh, caffeine, how do I love thee? Jolt Cola’s held a special place in my heart for a number of years. I used to get them at a store called “Sportsman’s Corner” in Edgefield, SC, but they stopped carrying them. Jolt was nowhere to be found in this area… Flash forward to this past weekend while in Sevierville, TN, when lo and behold… I discovered Jolt Cola in a Walgreen’s. Not content with only being able to enjoy this tasty (and energizing) beverage away from home, I immediately checked a local Walgreen’s once I got back to see if they carried Jolt Cola. Sure enough: they did.

The downside is the suckers run $2.99 a pop. That’s quite a bit more than one would spend on a typical energy drink. Fortunately for me (and you, if you’re interested), ThinkGeek sells Jolt Cola by the case for a mere $2.08 per can.

So far I’ve tried the new Jolt Cola and Jolt Blue and enjoyed them both. One of my coworkers had the Jolt Ultra, a carb-free, sugar-free, lemon-tasting beverage and said it was pretty good… There are a few other flavors I would like to try, but I’ll stick to the regular Jolt Cola for now.

It’s nice to be able to find these now… even though I probably ought to cut back on my caffeine intake. Which reminds me… I’m still up, and it’s just shy of midnight… Thanks, Jolt…
