Jolt Cola??


I'm trying to locate a supply of Jolt Cola (locally) in Atlanta, GA. Yes, I'm aware I can buy Jolt from J!NX or Thinkgeek, but the shipping kills ya on those.

Happy Herman's on Cheshire Bridge used to carry it, but no longer. Any intel welcomed.

The word "supply" scares me in this thread. Are you preparing for something I don't know about? Something that you could not make it through with RedBull or Espresso?

I'm ordering boxes of tin foil now. Come to my place if you guys want some hats as well.

What Matir needs is a tanker of Jolt with a big drinking straw. Using my super l33t internet detective powers, I surmise that matir is about to embark on a monster programming or gaming session and needs to keep awake.

LOL. I guess I really meant "supplier".

As a computer science major, caffeine is a staple of life. I can't stand the taste of Redbull.

I do enjoy the taste of jolt cola as well.

Apparently there is a distributing company in Atlanta:

http://www.angelfire.com/tn/traderz/redrock.html

Clayton Distributing Co., a small, local soft drink and juice distribution company in Atlanta, owns the franchise rights in northern Georgia and parts of Florida for Red Rock. Brothers Charles and Paul Redd have been partners and owners of Clayton since they purchased the company from the W. L. Clayton family in 1989. Before that, Charles worked as a CPA and Paul had a marketing background. Their father had worked for the Atlanta Coca-Cola Bottling Co. for 35 years and Charles had worked his way through college at both The Coca Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. One summer he worked for Coke during the week and Pepsi on the weekends. Paul worked in management at Coke, Pepsi and Southeast Atlantic Corp. before starting his own one-man soft-drink distribution company, which later merged to become part of Clayton Distributing. They distribute Red Rock Cola in a bottle with a nostalgic label, echoing the history of the drink. Along with Red Rock, Clayton distributes Welch's, Mistic, Jolt Cola, Gatorade and other beverages


Hope this helps with you required supply of Jolt.

Interesting. The original source seems to be http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/s.../smallb1.html.

I'm trying to see if I can get in touch with the Clayton Distribution Co and see where they sell Jolt. Thanks for the info!
