$3 a can?
$3 per battery can at Walgreens seems very expensive. $3 per six pack used to be a lot and this equates to $9. Jolt is not an energy drink, it is a cola. I love Jolt but will not pay $3 per battery can! Sorry
jolt is not an energy drink? are you NUTS?!? it's still the only drink that gets me wired! part of why i love that flat cola taste is i also know it's got a goddamn TON of pure caffeine, the shoot-me-up-like-a-rocket stuff in coffee without the horrible taste! not to mention it's SO rare and after having been without it for so long, $3 is a bargain.

Re: $3 a can?
I'm with you on the price. I've found Jolt at many of my local Walgreens lately (and some tiny Indian-run convenience stores). I was super stoked at first, took me back to my "Hack the planet" days.
$3+tax for some soda. Even if it's in a cool battery can now.
I'd rather pay $1 for a 2-liter of Mountain Dew. Or pepsi Max.
it's just financially more sensible.
They need to rethink and adjust things somehow.
i haven't checked the price in a while but i could have sworn the last time i bought it was like $2.25, which is the same price for most of the other "chic" large-can energy drinks. it does make it a bit of a luxury (nobody should be chugging energy drinks every day btw, it's basically soda x 2) but to me it's worth splurging on once in a while.
incidentally i was just thinking about making my own energy juice today... i've been hooked on Rumba energy juice as of late (link
) since it's got less calories, sugar, etc than other energy drinks and it's 100% juice and not juice-flavored chemicals. of course it's $2.25 a can so i think i'll buy a bottle of Guarana pills from GNC and a gallon jug of Florida's Natural orange juice and make my own drinks. if you want to find rumba it seems to be at most Mobile gas stations and CVS stores.
