In 2005, 80s soda icon Jolt Cola left shelves amongst some "bad business decisions," like a battery can and energy drink rebrand that didn't do so hot. However, after 12 years, the soda is hitting shelves once again for fans of the 80s and college students alike to get wired on once more.

Jolt Cola has just dropped into Dollar General stores across the country, where its $1 price point is half the cost of a typical 8 ounce Red Bull can. It should be a new cheap option for students, gamers, hackers, and others looking to pull all-nighters for whatever reason. At 160 milligrams of caffeine and 50 grams of sugar per 16 ounce can, Jolt will definitely have you bouncing off the walls.
In fact, a 16 ounce can of Jolt has just 2 grams less sugar than Coca-Cola and slightly more caffeine than a 16-ounce Red Bull, which checks in at 148 mg. That's a lot of energy packed inside of a can, but you do wanna watch that sugar.
Nonetheless, Jolt is back and ready to fuel your late nights once more.
