    I tried this product at the NAC show and I can tell you now it is ANOTHER failed product by Coke.

    How can a company with Billions of dollars have no idea what people want. How can they continue to fail with new products over and over again???

    This dumb drink contains over 50 grams of sugar!!!

    Nice try but get a clue Coke !!!

    Dont almost all of the 16 oz energy drinks have around 50 grams of sugar? What did it taste like to you? Did they try and create their own flavor or did they go after the "energy drink" taste?

    You didnt answer my question though. You need to quit asking why are we feeding these people the HFCS. Ask people why they feel they need to dirnk it? If no body bought it, coke and everyone else would not use it. Start looking to the consumers and not the suppliers to much.

    The 16 oz energy drinks are getting pretty saturated.

    Full Throttle Energy Drink is another burning sensation for Coke. Coke Recycles Products all over the world, one countries trash is another's treasure.

    I just tried Full Throttle on Friday. I cant say that it is bad, but it is definatly not good. Tastes somewere between a really flat mixture of Squirt and Sprite or some cheap lemon-lime margarita mix without the tequilla. It was too sweet for me, I almost got a stomach ache after drinking 1/4 of it. But if coke is smart, that drink is probably a very good mixer. It will be interesting to see what they do with it.
