Full Throttle is inviting guys to “Go Full Throttle or Go Home” – this time with the launch of Full Throttle Hydration, a

“Full Throttle Hydration is as refreshing and easy to drink as a sports drink,
with the charge of Full Throttle energy,” said Rafael Acevedo, Senior Brand Manager,

day ‘Full Throttle.'”
Full Throttle Hydration will join the rest of the product line in carrying the
