A little bit of this and a little bit of that. Daily Ramblings, recipes, photos and whatever else I like to share along the way.

Snickers Charged Bar

We picked two (they were 2 for .88 cents) of these up last week just to give them a try.

What is so special about this bar?

It has caffeine, taurine and B-vitamins inside (goodies that give you energy).

Feeling a bit slow before having to go back out for soccer practice last night I thought I would give the candy a try.
The bar tasted very much like a regular snickers bar, the only difference that I noticed was a very slight bitter taste after swallowing. This after taste did not bother me but I have read about others really disliking it.

Honestly, I did not get that rush of energy to help keep me going. Not sure that I was expecting to be zipping around in a mad rush but thought perhaps just a nice little boost to keep me going. Nothing. *sigh*
Perhaps others will get a bit of zing once consumed, but I think I will stick to just my plain Snickers bar for a treat and any extra boost of energy from a cup of coffee.

Side notes about the bar:

Included with the Snickers bar are the following stimulants:

60 mg Caffeine
250 mg Taurine
B6 - 10% of the RDA
B12 - 10% of the RDA

Snickers Charged™ contains 60 milligrams of caffeine. (this is a nice amount)

In comparison,

8-ounce soft drink contains 20-40 milligrams of caffeine,

8-ounce regular coffee contains 65-120 milligrams of caffeine

8-ounce energy drink contains 72-80 milligrams of caffeine.
