Grapette Glass Bottled Soda - We found it!

Grapette glass bottled soda was something that we have been asked about for years!  In all of our research the only thing we were able to find out is that Walmart/Sams had taken ownership of the brand and that it was being made in cans only, and being sold as Sam's Choice Grapette.  In addition, it is widely available in South America.

We essentially gave up looking for it and have been telling people to seek it out in cans at their local big box store.  Fast forward years later, and after some super-sleuthing we found it was being bottled in one location in the United States.

After a lot of phone calls and much anxiety (we weren't going to believe it until we saw it), we placed our order and crossed our fingers.  

Today, we received our shipment and here it is, in all its glory!  Glass Bottled Grapette!

So where can you find Glass Bottled Grapette? You can buy it at our store in Dallas, TX!

Nostalgia lovers rejoice!!!

Update 5/23/16

Due to pending litigation, Jolt Cola is no longer being bottled.  The last bit of information that we received was that it could be as long as 1-2 years before we see production resume on this product.

 As an alterantive, we do have Jolt Red Eye in stock and available to ship.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Since 2009, Jolt Cola and other Jolt flavors have been re-branded Jolt Energy. Jolt is still packaged in glass bottles in California.  Difficult to find outside of California, we have imported it just for you retro soda hounds!

 

 

Originally created in 1985 it was marketed as a high caffeine cola and it was targeted to students and young professionals.  It was the Red Bull of the 80's you might say.

You may remember some key places in pop culture history where Jolt could be found:

  • In Jurassic Park, Dennis Nedry's desk was littered with empty Jolt cans and bottles.
  • Gremlins 2
  • Trust
  • Hackers
  • Due Date
  • Looney Tunes: Back in Action
