    Re: Tired of Twinkies and Jolt?

    OK, I give in - I know what twinkies are, but what's Jolt? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Re: Tired of Twinkies and Jolt?

    http://www.joltcola.com/ I assume.

    Warning: One of those annoying sites that assumes you want a full size window, have Flash and trust them enough to run "...ActiveX controls and plug-ins..."

    Annoying is right - I didn't get to find out much about it because I couldn't stand all the flickering!

    If they want to sell stuff they shouldn't make it painful to read their site!

    Nobody wants to drink it - It's 99% caffeen and 1% amphetamine. I prefer an "Italian Expresso" or a Swiss "Ristretto" for my Jolt

    Re: Tired of Twinkies and Jolt?

    It's soda that is stronger than coffee. It's very popular with programmers and other such computer geeks.... much like the one I live with <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>
    I personally don't like soda and have quit caffeine all together since the headaches were too much to bear... but my darling Mike has bought cases of the stuff for the guys at work from http://www.thinkgeek.com. It's a great site for all sorts of geek paraphernalia for the one in your life. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
    have fun

    The Jolt site made me feel like I had a hangover with none of the fun!

    Twinkies any better?

    Re: Tired of Twinkies and Jolt?

    I got a free can at the Software Developers Forum "Jolt Cola Productivity Awards" a couple years ago. I kept it for the humor value. It recently popped its seal and made a bit of a mess. My point: I've never tasted the stuff. But I don't like any colas, so it would be difficult to judge.

    Here's the important part:

    NUTRITION INFORMATION

    Jolt Cola:
    Serving Size: 8 fl. oz.
    Amount Per Serving
    Calories 100
    % Daily Value*
    Total Fat 0 g 0%
    Sodium 10 mg 1%
    Potassium 0 mg 0%
    Total Carbohydrate 27 g 9%
    Sugars 27 g
    Protein 0 g 0%
    Vitamin C 0%
    Not a significant source of other nutrients.
    *Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.

    Wait a second... where's the caffeine value? Don't tell me I have to go back in there...

    Fat free - can't be all bad then.

    I am always amused by the No Calorie and Caffine free versions here - I mean what is in them that anybody would willingly want to ingest?

    Flavor better than tap water. Cheaper than juices and bottled water. I like the soda POP (carbonation?)

    My doctor says no salt or caffeine, my dentist says no sugar, my nutritionist says no protein or carbohydrate. Sometimes i say stuff 'em all.

    Don't ask me ask my cat. She is responsible for all dumb red head errors on the computer. Think maybe I will go fix that one. Tx for pointing it out.
