The weather to good health – eating, food, nutrition and health has had a divergent course. The introduction of additives and nutrients won’t necessarily result in good health. Nevertheless, you might fool the human body for a while with some of the snacks that border on food porn. Obviously, these are not essential nevertheless they certainly might make you feel lit up. In the meantime,, you can register for a healing group on your adrenal glands in a community near you.

Using the myriad of caffeinated products on shop shelves these days, there’s hardly any need for java. Everything from jerky and sunflower seeds to waffles and ice cream is providing a buzz. We chose to take a look at some of the products currently supplying consumers with a caffeine kick.

Because of the inflow of new products as well as their potential attractiveness to children, the Government’s Food and Drug Administration is evaluating their safety and the manner to best control the changing market.

Once it does so, we thought we’d share this quick evaluation from Hella Wella and take a closer glance at several of the products now providing customers with a caffeine kick. Watch out Starbucks!

Arma Energy Snx Potato Chips & Granola

“It’s not your mother’s granola,” says Arma Energy Snx’s web site. The company makes kettle-cooked potato chips, granola, fresh fruit mixture and trail mix — all “energy infused” with caffeine, taurine and B vitamins. One 2-oz package of BBQ kettle-cooked chips features 290 calories and 70 milligrams of caffeine — that’s somewhat less than a shot of espresso.

Bang! Ice Cream

Even your dessert can bring a buzz. And in case of Hit! ice cream, you may need to have dessert toward the start of the day since one serving dishes out 125 milligrams of caffeine — about equal to a cup of coffee. The ice cream is available in four flavors: Peanut Butta, Heaps of Gold, Iced Latte-Da and Cooky Mint.

Blue Diamond Roasted Coffee Almonds

Blue Diamond jumped in the bandwagon with its roasted coffee flavored almonds, which feature 25 milligrams of caffeine per portion. Bear in mind, though there are four portions per bundle, so in case you plan on chowing down all of it, you’re looking at the similar quantity of caffeine that’s in a few power shots.

Cracker Jack’d

Frito Lay made headlines last November when it announced its new line of snacks: Cracker Jack’d. Unlike the famed Cracker Jacks snack that came before it, Cracker Jack’d includes 70 milligrams of caffeine — about that which you’d get from the shot of espresso. The 2-ounce snack mix comes in flavors like zesty queso, PB & chocolate, berry yogurt and cheddar BBQ.

Crackheads2 Gourmet Chocolate Coffee Caffeine

Crackheads2 (squared) makes no apologies for the extraordinary caffeine content. In fact, it boasts it wherever it can. One box of the sweet- and chocolate-coated coffee beans contains 600 milligrams of caffeine — the equivalent of six cups of coffee, 7.5 cans of Red Bull and 11 cans of Mountain Dew, agreeing with the organization’s web site. All the best sleeping!

Jelly Belly Sport Beans

You (hopefully) won’t find these jellybeans in a kid’s Easter basket. Jelly Belly’s Extreme Sport Beans are marketed as “quick energy for sports performance.” The site advocates popping the beans half an hour before your work out and claims they’re “loaded with carbs for fuel, electrolytes to help keep fluid balance and vitamins to enhance energy release and guard cells against oxidative injury.” A single 1-oz bundle packages 100 calories, 25 grams of carbohydrates, 17 grams of sugar and 50 milligrams of caffeine — a bit more of a jolt than you’d acquire from a can of Diet Coke.

Perky Jerky

Perky Jerky found its way on the market after its creators accidentally drenched their beef jerky in an energy drink and ate it, just to find it boosted their energy as they skied. The brand is advertised as “all natural, ultra premium jerky” that’s produced with a seven-fixing marinade that contains guarana (the items you’ll see in energy drinks). One 1-oz bundle gives 150 milligrams of caffeine — about that which you’d see in a Monster energy drink.


Apparently even sunflower seeds are capable of being infused with caffeine. Sumseeds come in flavors like dill pickle, honey BBQ, ranch, and salt and pepper — as well as the first flavor — and carry 140 milligrams of caffeine into a single 1.75-ounce bag.

Wired Waffles

You won’t need coffee with this breakfast. Wired Waffles are just what they appear to be: waffles — even maple syrup — with caffeine. With 200 milligrams per waffle and about 48 milligrams per portion of syrup, you’re considering a buzz stronger than that which you’d get from most energy drinks.
