Game-Inspired Energy Drinks

G FUEL Launches a ‘Battletoads’-Inspired 'Zitz Juice' Energy Drink

— September 17, 2022 — Lifestyle
G FUEL, popularly known as The Official Energy Drink of Esports, has launched its new flavor 'Zitz Juice,' which was inspired by the Battletoads video game. The new flavor is sugar-free, contains 15 calories and 140mg of caffeine, and is crafted with energy and focus-enhancing complexes. ‘The Collector’s Box’ scores consumers a 40-serving Tub of the sweet and sour powder along with a 16 oz Battletoads Shaker Cup. ‘Zitz Juice’ is also available as a standalone tub without the shaker.

“Battletoads has been putting players’ skills to the test for three decades, so Zitz and his fellow ‘Toads absolutely needed their own G FUEL flavor to keep its many fans focused and energized,” said G FUEL Founder and CEO, Cliff Morgan. “Zitz Juice [is] a delicious, fun way to celebrate an enduring franchise, and it was great to collaborate with our partners at Rare to bring it to life.”
