Rise & Grind. And automatically reach for the closest cup of coffee, whether that’s brewed at home or a large latte on your way to the office. When you think of getting your morning jumpstart from caffeine, you think of the typical methods. Coffee … and keep them coming. But what if you could have your morning coffee and bagel, all in one? I promise it tastes better than it sounds. Check out these unconventional ways to get your caffeine fix!
Einstein Bros. Espresso Buzz Bagel
Yes, coffee in a bagel! This all in one option from Einstein Bros. Bagels was recently unveiled to the public. The bagel has 32 milligrams of caffeine, so only ⅓ of what you’d find in an 8 oz cup of coffee, but you still get a little fix. The bagel is an attempt to appeal to the millennial generation who is obsessed with craft brewed coffee. Well congrats, Einstein Bros, this “unique and innovative” option has definitely caught our (and the internet’s) attention!
Eat Your Coffee Bar
We expect a brand called “Eat Your Coffee” to have items that pack a tasty caffeine punch. So we checked, and they do! Their line of Eat Your Coffee Bars have flavors that range from Mocha Latte to Caramel Macchiato and come filled with a full serving of coffee – serious caffeine fiends only for this line of snacks. These bars also boast all natural ingredients and are organic, vegan, and gluten-free!
This small, Illinois based business is here to solve your morning woes. Coffee Cereal is committed to creating gourmet, high quality cereals that are loaded with caffeine. A premium blend of coffee paired with corn flakes are the base of their cereals, creating a delectable new breakfast option. Even their mission statement shows they mean business: “Coffee is our passion; cereal is our business.”
Bang!! Caffeinated Ice Cream
Get your dessert and caffeine fix too! Bang!!, a family run ice cream plant in Wisconsin makes their own high quality, innovative ice cream. Yummy flavors like Peanut Butta and Iced Latte-Da give you tasty choices to fit your caffeine and ice cream consumption. Each scoop of ice cream is equivalent to one energy drink or 125mg of caffeine. These ice creams are only sold in retail throughout the Midwest, but luckily for you: you can order anything online. Even caffeinated ice cream.
PB & Joe Smoothie
Juice Generation’s PJ & Joe Smoothie is packed with healthy ingredients like bananas, cocoa nibs and peanut butter, but our favorite part? The cold brew coffee. That’s right, this smoothie will fill you up, and WAKE you up!
