    What could be better than combining chocolate and getting a shot of caffeine at the same time, and not having to taste the bitterness of coffee?

    Now its possible to do just that with the introduction of Snickers Charged. Snickers Charged combines the decadence of a regular Snickers bar with 60mg caffeine.

    Not...taste...coffee....?

    Now, what, precisely, would be the purpose of life, then?

    Now if they could only cut a few calories out and add about 20 g of protein.

    When I first read the header, I thought it was going to be about someone suing Snickers for making them be obese.

    I had one of them a week or so ago. It was okay, a little drier then a 'normal' snickers. I agree that it would be better off with more protein and less calories though.

    What is this country's obsession with caffeine? We inject it into everything and then advertise it like its gold.

    I got caffeinated soap and lip balm for Christmas.

    Caffeine is my friend.

    It doesn't...it's a gimmick.

    It says that it delivers something like 200 mg per wash, but science has proven that it's not absorbed into your body.

    Darn science.

    When I first read that title I thought someone named Snickers had joined the Iowa football team!

    Don't energy drinks give you caffeine w/o the taste of coffee? Althought it's mostly teenagers and college goers that drink that stuff.

    Seems like a waste of a good Snickers bar to me.

    I'll always remember this "energy drink" from my time in Germany:

    Water Joe

    If you want it, drive to Janesville, WI. They have a ton of it at Pick n Save. =)
     
  15. Im 31 and glad i never got into caffeine. Coffe, Mountain Dew, and energy drinks quite frankly make me feel ill and they make my uh...my berries hurt. :eek: Stimulants in general give me some pain to the uh...nether region. Not sure what thats all about.

    I recall from my youth during some stay overs with friends and everyones mom was zombified until she'd get her coffee down. From a pretty young age it gave me a bad impression about drinking coffee.

    I have some friends that are about the same age that are amazed that i can get up at 5:30 am and promptly go to the gym and put in a few miles on the treadmill with no help from caffeine.
