Caffeinated Soda

The are many sodas in the marketplace today but some have become more famous over time for their caffeine content.  Here are 5 of the more famous caffeinated sodas.

Jolt Cola - by far the most well-known higher caffeinated soda. With the memorable slogan "All the sugar and twice the caffeine" made this soda a huge seller back in the 80's.  Since then changes of ownership and lawsuits have removed Jolt Cola from the mainstream but it now appears to be going back into production in cans this year.

Afri-Cola - while creating its own caffeine sensation in Germany this cola made its way into the US in the 60's. With a uniquely shaped glass bottle and an avant-garde type advertising Afri Cola had quite the drink following.  Afri-Cola which maintains a higher caffeine content than Jolt is now back in the US.

Mt Dew - "Do the Dew" as the saying goes with this citrus flavored caffeinated soda.  Mt Dew according to sources originated in 1940 by Barney and Ally Hartman. While the formulation has been revised since then Mountain Dew still holds top position in the caffeinated/citrus flavored market.  Over the years others have tried to compete such as Surge, Mellow Yellow and Sun Drop.

Coca Cola - while this cola is thought of more as an everyday beverage this product has been enjoyed by many around the world for the infusion of caffeine. While Coke may never be marketed as a caffeinated soda it does contain enough of the ingredient to keep you going.

Dr. Pepper - what started out as an invention by a pharmacist in 1891 became an instant success.  Dr. Pepper which is touts that it is made up of 23 flavors it is quite caffeinated and has become the hallmark soda of choice in Texas. An old advertisement from 1913 stated that Dr. Pepper was "liquid sunlight."
