Caffeinated Snickers?

If you’re the type who enjoys going to ThinkGeek and loading up on caffeinated candy, you might be interested to know that Snickers has come out with a limited edition candy bar with caffeine, taurine and B-vitamins. It’s called Snickers Charged, and it has 60mg of caffeine–About as much as a cup of coffee.

Candy Blog’s write-up is sort of amazing:

And then it comes along, the caffeine kick. And when I say kick, I mean in the mouth. It’s a bitter aftertaste that sits high and in the back of the mouth. It just kind of lingers there, like maybe it’s not something you ate but something you smelled (sometimes strong skunk will do that to me). And it stays with you, probably as long as the caffeine is in your system. I clocked my aftertaste for eating one half of a bar at 90 minutes.

Dear Weshop: Pretty please?

    Starbucks coffee (which is close to the average, caffeine-wise) has about 22 mg of caffeine per fl oz. So even the smallest coffee (8 fl oz) would have close to 180 mg of caffeine, and the bigger servings could have 300 mg or more.60 mg is pretty light, closer to a cup of tea.
