Kickstart is a "morning soda" that was released on February 25, 2013. It comes in energy drink sized cans but has less caffeine than other energy drinks. It launched with two flavors: citrus orange and fruit punch. And I'm surprised to see the 16 oz can is one serving with only 80 calories.
I will be driving around this morning looking for the fruit punch variant. If I find it, I'll try it out and post an update with my critique.
05/04/13 Update - I headed out this morning in search of the red Kickstart. I had a few free hours if I needed it. I had my list of grocery and convenient stores to check. I told the family if I wasn't back by midday not to worry, I was out hunting. And then I checked the store one block from my house and found it. They've had both flavors for a while, I just didn't know it. Silly me.
I bought it and tried it out. Eh. Carbonated fruit punch is kind of a weird experience, but I guess it could help wake one up in the morning. I'm not a big fruit punch kind of person to begin with, so I probably couldn't have expected too much out of this. Overall, it wasn't too bad. Give it a try.
And the good news is that during my abbreviated can hunt I found a couple other cans I didn't have. Maybe I'll write about those some day...
