I’ll let you decide if this is pure genius or purely disgusting, but for $19.99, exhausted entrepreneurs and their overstretched teams have a new option to layer into their revolving late-night diets of skinny lattes and Diet Coke. Behold the caffeinated marshmallow, each injected with more than 100 milligrams of caffeine.
How much caffeine is that, exactly? To put it into perspective, that’s roughly the same amount of caffeine as you’d consume in a Starbucks frappuccino blended coffee beverage; more than twice as much caffeine as you’d down with one standard 12 oz. can of Coke, Dr. Pepper, or Pepsi; and about a fifth more caffeine than you’ll find in an 8.3 oz serving of Red Bull. All in one gooey little marshmallow.
What we do not advise? Coupling your caffeinated marshmallows with either hot cocoa or candy. Not only do both have plenty of caffeine on their own (one cup of hot cocoa –10 milligrams; one candy bar — 30 milligrams), that stuff will give you a stomachache. And presumably, you still have work to do.
