Mmmm… Caffeine

For years, I’ve heard things such as “That has as much caffeine as a cup of coffee!” or “Coffee has more caffeine than soda!” I’m pleased to say that now, I finally have some raw information.

The thing that surprised me the most on this was the amount of caffeine in, yes, a cup of coffee – it’s pretty high compared to a can of soda. And, those caffeine mints have very little caffeine in ’em.

Thankfully, we live in an age of caffeinated soap.

Just get the I. V. of Diet Coke started and no one gets hurt.

Actually, I'm surprised how much caffeine some of my fave soft drinks have..Diet Coke is higher than I thought. The real scare is how high Red Bull is for a 8.3oz can..compared to all of the sodas in 12oz cans. That's an unreal amount of caffeine.
So much for the days when Jolt Cola was taboo.

.....and who the heck drinks Josta or Surge? Is that stuff even made anymore?

The Diet Coke number surprised me too. I've gotten to the point that I have to lay off the caffeine after lunch or it will interfere with my sleep.

Getting old sucks.

I was also surprised that Pepsi One has as much caffeine as Mountain Dew! I don't drink either, as the realm of Caffeine Free sodas has taken over, but still. That's a lot.

I was sure that you were linking us to Body Coffee, a super-cool San Francisco based company that sells soap, lip balm, body scrubbing salt, and lotions made from coffee. They have evidence that coffee on your skin can help block the sun's damaging rays. I am not making this up. It's good stuff.

What is this then?
