    GODZILLA ENERGY is also available in an alcoholic form, GODZILLA ENERGY CHU-HI, with its own Godzilla-1.0 design.  The liquer went on sale at Maxvalu Nishinihon on Mnday, October 23, and will be available at select Aeon stores on Wednesday, November 6, 2023.


    ● The "Most Terrifying" Godzilla Energy Featuring Godzilla-1.0

    GODZILLA ENERGY was the first Godzilla energy drink to be released, and was a big hit upon its launch in 2021. GODZILLA ENERGY II, released the following year, attracted Godzilla fans with two different package designs: "Burning Godzilla" and "Type-3 Kiryu." In early 2023 the third release featured King Ghidorah, one of the most well-known characters in the Godzilla series.

    And now, GODZILLA ENERGY III will be featured in a powerful new package with Godzilla-1.0, the "most fearsome" Godzilla, all over it. The package design allows fans to enjoy both the impressive front shot of Godzilla's grim expression and the powerful back shot of his dorsal fins and tail. Cheerio hopes that fans will experience the "most terrifying" Godzilla energy to date.

    ●  Godzilla-Class Heavy Drinking! The Blue Liquid Color Matches the Look of the Movie

    In order to help bring Godzilla's 70th anniversary to life, this energy drink contains 690 mg of arginine (per bottle) and 210 mg of caffeine (per bottle), top-level amounts in the energy drink category. The drink is flavored with the image of Godzilla, and the liquid color is blue to resemble the glowing dorsal fins of the King of the Monsters.

    ●  GODZILLA ENERGY CHU-HI Alcoholic Beverage Also on Sale

    The highly popular GODZILLA ENERGY is now available in a new chu-hi (sochu/soda mix) form to coincide with the release of the movie. This purple energy chu-hi drink contains 7% alcohol and arginine, and has the same flavor as GODZILLA ENERGY.

    The package design allows fans to enjoy both sides of Godzilla: a shot featuring his powerful dorsal fins, and a full-body shot from a different angle. 

     

    ● Cheerio's Thoughts on Collaboration with Godzilla

    Godzilla is the world's strongest monster king, a powerful being that has been loved by many people around the world for about 70 years, and is one of Japan's most iconic creations. Cheerio has been creating beverages that have surprised the world for over 60 years. With the slogan "Delicious, Fun, and New" (おいしい たのしい あたらしい, Oishī Tanoshī Atarashī), Cheerio, has been providing vitality to the Japanese people since before the global energy drink market heated up with its "Lifeguard" (超生命体飲料ライフガード, Chō Seimeitai Inryō Raifugādo) energy drink launched in 1986 and "Jungleman" (ジャングルマン, Janguruman) survival energy drink launched in 2004. Through the energy drink ``GODZILLA ENERGY Ⅲ Godzilla-1.0ver,'' we will provide Japanese society and everyone around the world with the courage and vitality to face the most terrifying Godzilla.
