What Is Ski Soda’s Caffeine Content?

Original Ski Soda contains 69 milligrams of caffeine per 12-ounce can. This is considered to be a moderate amount of caffeine. However, a 12-ounce can of Ski Soda also contains 46.5 grams of sugar. To see how the Original compares to other flavors, here is a list of how much caffeine is in each Ski Soda.

  • Original: 69 mg
  • Diet Ski Soda: 17 mg
  • Caffeine Free Diet: 0 mg
  • Cherry: 69 mg
  • Tropical: 20-ounce bottle contains 125 mg

You can get Ski Soda at specialty shops in 12-ounce cans, 20-ounce bottles, and 2-liter bottles. Ski Soda does not seem overly caffeinated, but how does it measure up to the other leading sodas on the market?

Ski Soda vs Other Leading Soda Brands

Keeping in mind that the original 12-ounce can of Ski Soda contains 69 mg of caffeine, let’s see how it stacks up to other leading soda brands and their 12-ounce size cans.

  • Pepsi: 38 mg
  • Sun Drop Soda: 64 mg
  • Coke: 34 mg
  • Green Cola: 37 mg
  • Shasta Cola 43 mg

As you can see, Original Ski Soda contains more caffeine than every soda, and only Sun Drop comes close. It is still considered a moderate amount of caffeine, so safe to drink if you don’t have a sensitivity to caffeine.

Signs That You Have a Caffeine Sensitivity

If you’ve never consumed much caffeine, or even if you have, it’s possible to develop a caffeine sensitivity. There are a few warning signs to watch out for.

  • Anxiety
  • Headache
  • Heart palpitations
  • The jitters or shakes
  • Insomnia
  • Restlessness
  • An urgent need to use the bathroom

It’s important to note that you might not experience all of these symptoms but still may have a sensitivity. If you think you do, it is best to refrain from drinking anything with caffeine in it. If your symptoms persist, contact your doctor for diagnosis and treatment right away.
