    Default JOLT now an energy drink.

    So, I was drinking some JOLT Blue that I bought yesterday and I notice where it used to say, "POSITIVE Reinforcement" on the can, It now says "Energized with taurine, guarana, ginseng & vitamin B complex. So now, it's not just a high caffeine soda, it's a functional food.

    I thought their big marketing was that it was "natural energy" not the normal energy mix.

    Well, technically, it still is naturall caffeine all they did was add an energy mix. Aren't the other ingredients natural?

    Well It's been a while since I had a JOLT Blue, but I actually recognized a difference in the taste before noticing that the had put more ingredients in. It's still one of my favorites, It's kinda cotton candy flavored. I have not tried and of the other flavors except for cola, and that was before the change. The kick, it's hard for me too say, It was a bit more than usual, maybe because it's been a day since I last had an energy drink, It's still got the 220mg of natural caffeine per 23 oz.. Did you have the original Cola flavor in a bottle?


    EDIT: Corrected misinformation on caffeine content.

    Sorry, I was completely wrong about the caffeine content. The raised it from 140mg to 220mg. Stupid me didn't think to look at the can.

    I have a bunch of the 23.5 oz. cans here - a Jolt Cherry Bomb, several Jolt Red (which I know wouldn't be correct in caffeine content because they are discontinued now) and a Jolt Blue. Both the Cherry Bomb and Jolt Blue list the caffeine as 140 mg - I haven't heard anything about them raising the caffeine content. Is this going to be on all their drinks?

    Well, It might take longer for the new version to get to you depending on were you are located at. I'm pretty sure if they do it to jolt blue, then they have done it to all of them. I don't think you have heard about it yet because from what I've seen Drink companies do not tell people about changes like this until the product reaches all if not most of the country. This is just a guess though. Here are pictures of the old can(left) and new can(right)....

    Cool pic - thanks for the info! Jolt's my favorite drink (actually Jolt Red), but I like all of them. It always had just the right amount of caffeine for me (I'm kind of on the small side - a little caffeine goes a long way), so I hope I can handle the extra dose of caffeine in the new formula - I'd hate to give up my Jolt! I used to be able to get Jolt Cola here in 12 oz. cans and that was great! I think they only have those now in Canada, if even that.
