Get this out of the vending machine at the skatepark when I was 12 it was delicious, fast forward to now it's awful. What changed?

I think they change the formulas. When the pitch black version first came out as limited edition, it was amazing. Then about a year later they released it as a regular flavor and it was nowhere near the original.
When something goes from limited edition to mass production they start cutting costs on ingredients in order to maintain profits

You've got a point.

>>18611431
These products are poor and their marketing is aimed at children. 85-95% of the cost of these types of products is because of marketing.

>>18611450
None of the ingredients used in any of these types of products by any of these brands were ever costly to begin with. They were bottom of the cesspool all along. I'm sorry.

if they're anything like whoever made Surge, then they changed the formula
luckily the old Surge flavor can be found in Monster super dry (whatever that means)

I'm sick of the false advertising, if you change the fucking formula or recipe you should change the name

I wish they'd get rid of the Code Red 2L in favor of bringing back Voltage 2L.

Code Red is the main thing keeping me from being married by having my ass engaged to the toilet bowl from diarrhea.

Usually "limited edition" means they don't expect the product to sell outside of novelty, or the ingredients are at a low cost due to the state of the markets

achievable natty?

"Blue" raspberry and Grape are the cheapest artificial flavors you can get. If they put anything in there actually extracted from fruit at all, its' going to be streets ahead.

skateparks are good hunting grounds

I don't think the ingredients changed.

Tried it for the first time recently and it instantly became my favourite soda of alltime. So it can't be that shit.

Voltage used to have a richer flavor back around the time it came out.

I'm speculating here, but I believe it was to distinguish, or rather emphasize, the difference between its other dewmocracy candidate, Revolution - a wild berry flavor.

Voltage is still the best flavor, but as a long time consumer, it's noticeably less potent - even after a year's abstinence.
Used to be an overwhelming feeling of refreshment to gulp down a cold can of the stuff.

Anyone else feel a little weird after drinking Voltage? It's not the caffeine, I'll drink a 300mg Bang no problem.

Sugar was changed to Sugar (corn syrup)

Voltage is a meme. They came out with Atomic Blue, and it was an exact clone of Voltage.

i will never forgive (((the corn syrup companies))) for making that law

>>18616339
Corn is heavily subsidized by the government. Blame your elected officials and the lobbyists that pay them

>>18616372
>lobbyists
