300% more caffeine than Redbull. Seems like some pretty intense stuff. Anybody tried it?

No, but it sounds inticing. I just recently tried Sparx, the energy drink with 6% alcohol, and I am a big fan.

I like Sparx too, kind of like Red Bull meets Sprite.

That Cocaine stuff seems kind of stupid, I mean, if I drink a cup of coffee I feel alert and I'm able to concentrate. If I drink three cups of coffee in a row I feel jittery and nauseous. Seems like that Cocaine has an unnecessary amount of caffeine.

That's been a popular drink in the US for some time. I had friends in law school that loved them so I'll say they have been around at least 7-8 years.

Yeah, it's even popular here in S. America. At least since about 2001, or 2002.

Yeah, it's called a V-Bull. It's pretty popular in Asia now (Japanese ministry of health finally granted Redbull an import license last summer).

Who needs cocaine when we've got Boo-Koo energy with 360mg of caffeine per can

I figure the US must be a caffeine addicted nation.

Jolt! I haven't heard about that stuff since middle school. I seem to remember that it was a sort of bad-boy phenomenon. "Oooh, are you drinking Jolt? Wow, you're a bad-a$$."

I remember Jolt from a marketing case in a course I took circa 1998. If I remember correctly the slogan was: "double the sugar, double the caffeine!". But I haven´t actually been able to get a can of the stuff to give it a test drive. Is it still available?

Indeed you can! It took the power of Google search as I haven't seen this stuff in ages, but voila!
