We have had the caffeinated drinks like Red Bull come to us in plenty of iterations over the years. If you’re tired of this parade of strange drinks trying to get you feeling energetic again, and if you’re tired of dropping five dollars and more on a latte every morning, you’re probably wondering if there’s something else you can turn to for you caffeine shot. Well, these foods that contain caffeine should help.
Yes, they make foods that contain caffeine. They aren’t natural foods at all. They’re processed factory-made food. But they are food, and you can always keep a package in your desk drawer. You can have access to a shot of caffeine anytime. Let’s take a look, shall we?
For about four dollars each, A Snack in the Face (they want it to sound like “A smack in the face”) is a totally caffeinated cookie and it’s actually supposed to contain enough caffeine (200mg each) that it can really get you up and moving an instant. Of course, caffeine doesn’t really belong in a cookie. It might feel too weird to go to a cookie just for the caffeine. If that’s the way you feel, there are other foods that contain caffeine that you could go for.
Like Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Bar. It’s just a dollar for a bar of chocolate, and each bar gives you 31mg of the good stuff. As candy bars go, 31mg of caffeine is the highest caffeine count in a candy car that you’ll ever find. But even so, it’s nowhere near what you’ll get from a cup of coffee. If you’re worried about your health and don’t want too much caffeine in your system, this could be a very nice way of getting a shot of what you like while still not going overboard.
Is there some kind of fraternity rule that manufacturers of drinks and foods that contain caffeine have to follow, that they have to really make them creepy? Case in point – remember the powdered sugar thing that you always loved as a kid that they called Pixie Stix? They have a new version of the classic now, and it’s called Nixie Tubes. A pack of five tubes costs about $7, and each contains flavored powdered sugar. And oh, each tube also contains 200 mg of caffeine. What a thing to do to treats that little kids might love.
There’s plenty more of this kind of stuff if you’re interested. Biofuel Gourmet Caffeinated Popcorn, Ben & Jerry’s Coffee Heath Bar Crunch – people do love their caffeine, you betcha.
