It's a lemon flavored energy drink from Austrailia. It said on the can that it's distributed by Dr. Pepper/Schwepps.

I picked up a couple cans yesterday. It tastes a lot like Sprite but with a stronger lemon flavor. Good stuff.

I also picked up some Full Throttle Blue Demon and Bawls. Which I haven't even been able to find yet.

I tried it some time ago - it was pretty good, basically like a carbonated lemonade. I'd probably have it again except the ED market is so heavily saturated with choices that I generally stick to my favorites or I'd go insane! (those being Rip It Limewrecker, Full Throttle Blue Demon and a new one on my A list - Blue Acai 180)

AFAIK, it's distributed only by Coke bottlers.

The side of the can should say something to the effect of "by a member of the Coca-Cola bottlers association under the authority of Dr Pepper/Seven Up"

It's a nice change from the standard energy drink.

We have it in single cans and 4 packs (the packaging is just like Full Throttle 4 packs).

Produced in Portland, Indiana (PR).

Tried it last month & it tasted good. I like the lemon flavor. It's in my A-List of EDs.

Sounds like a good idea, but it might not gain traction in a crowded ED environment.

Taste sounds good, I'd try it if I saw it. I'm the kind of guy that mixes Sour Mix with Sprite sometimes. :)

Tasted like a Full Throttle extension... it was pretty weak. I didn't really mind the taste, but the "boost" was just as minimal as Full Throttle.

I'm really intrigued by this, I wonder if it's available in Canada?

Yea, good stuff. But was more soda-like than an energy drink taste and buzz.

UGGH!

I had this product a few weeks back. To syrupy, and not that good. I LOVE SOLO which is the Australian lemon drink this is based on. I live on that stuff when I lived there. Why basterdize such a fine product and make into a nasty energy drink is beyond me.
The US is lacking in any tangy lemon drinks on a major scale.

A correction to your page, though.

Coolah is owned by Cadbury Schweppes. It is merely distributed by various Coca-Cola bottlers in the US.

Has anyone even seen the diet version of this?

Cadbury's blowing this stuff out.. I've seen coupons for $1 off singles and $.75 off 4 packs. We only have a few cases left in the warehouse - no word if it's going to be reordered.

I haven't tried more than a sip from when my twin bought one before. Is it really dry like lemonade?
