Wet Planet Beverages, which launched its Jolt brand into the energy drinks category in the 80s, has introduced an extended energy shot which purportedly offers the consumer over six hours of energy.

The US-company said yesterday (8 January), that the new sugar-free drink, The Jolt Endurance Shot, contains a mix of amino acids, electrolytes, vitamins, enzymes and caffeine.

Wet Planet Beverages president CJ Rapp said: "Jolt is not just a means to an end. You no longer have to suffer through the taste to get the desired affect. The Jolt Endurance Shot delivers an enjoyable, effective, and long lasting energy experience."

Jolt Endurance Shots will retail at approximately US$2.49 for 2oz single bottles, with twin packs and merchandising shippers also available.
