I have fond memories of Josta. Long ago, when I was making lots of drives from Huntsville down to Montevallo, I would suck down a Surge and a Josta back to back. The caffeine content of both, working together (or fighting one another, maybe) in my head was potent enough that I could feel my hair growing. There’s nothing better in this world than playing the Carmina Burana at full blast while careening down dark two-lane roads with the windows down and on a caffeine high. Whew, those were good days.
Anyway, Josta was Pepsi’s guarana-enhanced berry-cola product. They foolishly stopped making it right in time to see the energy drink explosion we see around us today. And it must be good–because I freaking hate Pepsi. Pepsi to me is just stale Coke.
Maybe Pepsi will buy a clue and bring the drink back. Then we can get Coke to bring back Surge. Fascists.
