One little bolg of minor importance before I start my vacation. For over a year now I've sworn by Isomers Brry Blast enery drink as the greatest pick-me-up in the world. I have one in the morning and I'm awake in minutes, then usually one more before work to get me through. Not only does it have caffine but b vitamins and amino acids, plus it tastes awesome.
Now back to the caffine. I never really looked at how much caffine is in one packet but I just checked and it's 75 miligrams. How does that compare to other drinks? Let's look...
My favorite soda-pop in the world, Pepsi One, has 55.5 milligrams of caffine. My other favorite Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi has 38. As a teenagre I downed Mountain Dew by the gallon because that was supposedly high in caffine, it's up there at 55. A good-old fashioned can of Coke, only 34. In the summer, nothing like and iced cold Snapple Sweetened tea, low on the caffine scale at 12 milligrams.
So whatever happened to that nice hot cup of coffee right? If you brew it, you'll get from 80-135 milligrams of caffine and the cup of coffee, drip: highest on the chart at 115-175. Even your cup of decaf, either brewed or instant has 2-4 milligrams so if you need to completely avoid caffine don't drink it. Beverages with ZERO caffine include: Fresca, Siera Mist, A&W root beer, Minute Maid and Sundrop Orange, Mug and Diet Barq's Root Beer (non-diet Barq's actually has 23 milligrams I was surprised to learn), 7-up, sprite and Diet-Rite cola.
