Using a Rexam re-sealable can and benefiting from the classic Jolt brand name, this product is one that visibly stands out. However, opening the can is a bit tricky, with a plastic wrap over the re-sealable cap that's a bit of a challenge to remove. Once removed, twisting the cap makes an audible pop, which fits with the energy theme. Flavor is decent, with an orange soda style flavor that's noticeably less sweet than your typical energy drink. It does, however, use HFCS, which leaves a bit of a syrupy coating behind. Functionality comes in the form of caffeine, taurine, guarana, ginseng, and B vitamins, which appear to be on par with other products on the market today. Packaging is clean and to the point, with the classic Jolt logo being properly used on the drink's uncluttered front panel. Overall, it's an enjoyable flavor with unique packaging, but we'd like it a lot more if they made the plastic wrap easier to remove.
