I went with Surge, though both were great. I remember drinking a 2 liter of Surge at a friends house when I was 10 and felt like **** for a while. So good.

Surge and it ain't close. We had a surge machine at our high school and it was broken. It would always spit out two at a time.

Surge had the better marketing campaign for sure :D. I did like the taste of Jolt better.

Is the Surge that recently came back comparable to the original or did they change the recipe? If I remember correctly, didn’t it make your pee basically glow in the dark like a phosphorescent highlighter?

Just looked at the new ones ingredients and lol one can is 110% of daily sugar.

Looks like Jolt is back as well as a Dollar General exclusive and has a measly 100% of daily sugar... pathetic.

I hated both. Every time I drank them I thought I was going to barf.

Mt Dew has 5 more grams of sugar per serving than surge.

We have a couple guys at work that can go through 8 to 12 cans of full strength dew in a day. Sometimes more. I had a guy at a previous job that basically didn’t eat, went through a 12 pack of dew during the day and then as soon as he got out of the parking lot, he was downing Milwaukee’s Best Ice for the rest of the night. He would finish a 6er on his drive home which was maybe 15 miles at most.

It makes me want to throw up just thinking about that much pop. I can hardly stomach a single can of non diet pop. If I have pop at all, it’s usually mixed with something else.

Our house is pretty much milk, water and some diet pop for me and the wife. No juice or anything like that for the kids.

I used to work at a little grocery store in high school. I remember that the owner used to have me go to the soda case at the end of the night and swirl the surge bottles around, because if they sat for too long, some kind of whitish sediment would build up at the bottom of the bottle. I never knew what that sediment actually was, but I like to pretend it was ground up yeti cartilage.
