An 80’s Classic is Back In Stores
If you're like me...a kid of the '80s, you know about Jolt Cola. It's the soda you're mom was probably scared to let you drink because she heard about a kid who drank it and had a heart attack. And I'm only half joking. I remember having a bunch of friends stay all night once, and my mom freaked out when Eddie Cross brought a 2 liter of Jolt for the sleepover. If we had social media back then, I would have been #embarrassed.
Well everything old is new again. Stephen King, the master of the 80's scariest movies, has a new version of It in theaters, the retro 80's show Stanger Things is up for a bunch of Emmy's tonight...and Jolt is coming back to stores starting Thursday. Jolt will be sold exclusively at Dollar General stores. A 16-ounce can will cost $1.
By the way...if it's like the old Jolt, each 16-ounce can will have 191 milligrams of caffeine...about the same as most energy drinks...way more than a regular soda, but less than coffee.
Now if you'll excuse me I want to see if I can round up some Pop Rocks to pour in my Jolt on Thursday.
