10,000 days of Jolt Cola


Jolt Cola was the 1st energy drink sold pretty much anywhere.  


Well, there was this also guy named Chaleo who started an energy drink in Thailand in the 1970’s, but that’s another story.It’s been more than 27 years since our hero CJ first bottled Jolt Cola as it flowed from a pristine underground aquifer in upstate NY (let’s just say the bottling plant had a pipe that went underground, we say…entirely making that up).

It’s 27 years, 7 leap years and 137 days later, making today the 9,999th day the Jolt Cola has kept us awake, alert and frankly, just having a little more fun.   Kicking off in 1985 with an awesome nose-thumb of a tagline “All the sugar, 2x the caffeine,”  Jolt has fueled and fun-ded parties, movies, coders, gamers, athletes and students all across America and the world.

We thought it would be fun over the next year to bring you a few videos, images and stories from the history of our namesake beverage. Some will be official ads and promos, some were official but never saw the light of day (What, you say, does “official” mean?  Let’s just say “official” means someone who sold Jolt Cola paid to make the ad or promo), some were crowd sourced and some are now a part of Americana, like where Bill Gates reminisces about coding Windows NT on a gullet full of Jolt.    Some are quirky, some are great, and some are just weird.  But all combine to make Jolt the awesome drink it is!  Come to think of it, we really should throw an online party.


Here’s a Jolt Cola ad from the archives.

Jolt caffeine gum helps you recover after a workout


What if we told you there was something that would help you run faster, improve reaction times, and then recover faster post-exercise?  


And it’s legal.  Where can we get some of that stuff?

If you’re like most people, you already did this morning.

Have a plate of penne, a spoonful of spaghetti, a cup of cola and a canteen of coffee after a workout and you’ll recover a lot faster!

There’s more and more science showing that caffeine not only improves athletic performance, but now we’re learning it also helps your muscles recover faster after exercise too.  It makes some sense right away if you think about it… assuming most races or competitions involve fixed distances, if caffeine helps you to run faster or perform better, it must have helped you to do something more efficiently.

Indeed, University of Birmingham (England) researchers tested the effect of caffeine on the rate which carbs are consumed during exercise.  They found that the usage rate of carbohydrates was 26 percent higher in the cyclists receiving carbs with caffeine than in those receiving carbs without caffeine.  The conclusion is that caffeine may have increased the rate of glucose absorption, giving muscles more fuel more quickly. The extrapolated effect on performance is the ability to work harder for a longer period of time without getting as fatigued.

But what if you’re already exhausted?  Put a check mark in the caffeine and carb boxes again.  A recent study showed that athletes carb-ed up and caffeinated had 66% more glycogen in their muscles four hours after finishing intense exercise.  If you have 66% more fuel for the next day’s training or competition, there is absolutely no question you will go farther or faster,” said Dr. Hawley, senior author of the study.

Not that we’re not a little biased on the caffeine, but science sure seems to indicate that having caffeine before exercise, and carbs and caffeine after exercise is a win win.  Let Jolt caffeine gum help you in your workout and recover after it!  THAT’S what we’re talking about when we say, “Jolt Caffeine Gum… Chew More.  Do More!”
