Scientist Develops Caffeinated Doughnuts

Source



DURHAM. N.C. (AP) - That cup of coffee just not getting it done anymore? How about a Buzz Donut or a Buzzed Bagel? That's what Doctor Robert Bohannon, a Durham, North Carolina, molecular scientist, has come up with. Bohannon says he's developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods, without the bitter taste of caffeine. Each piece of pastry is the equivalent of about two cups of coffee.

While the product is not on the market yet, Bohannon has approached some heavyweight companies, including Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks about carrying it.


And I thought Red Bull and Vodka was Enough to keep the grim reaper happy!

Hey, I'll have one of those GOnuts.

Equivalent to two cups of coffee, that could save me a LOT of time.

Now if only they could get caffiene into cigarettes, or nicotene into food, I would be happy.

EGAD! Here I am trying to reduce my caffeine intake, and they're out there trying to find new ways to feed it to me! Does this guy have funding from the sleeping pill industry or something?!

- No Cups means Less trees...
- Dumb people wont get 3rd degree burns (but prob will choke on one)
- give your Kids Enough Calories for the Day with a Morning Jolt so they don't fall sleep during class

Haha, I envisioned 'Tweak' from South Park when I read that, haha.


I'm not so sure you'd want to give your kids calories w/out the nutrition to go with it (Americans are 'F'ing fat)...


Yeah, I really don't see this as a good thing, really too much caffeine in general is a bad thing...



caffeine is the world's most widely consumed psychoactive substance

from - en.wikipedia.org...

It seems we already enjoy too much of it. I don't think it's very natural (or safe) to HAVE to ingest something, just to complete daily tasks. It's fine for mornings of late nights out, but really, pure caffeine is just silly.

I read about this earlier, and I have to say, I think it's a good way
to make money.

Obviously this is not a good thing if you are trying to lose wieght
(or trying to slim down the population), but for those people with
fast metabolisms, or eat right but are on the run and don't want
coffee, it really is cool.

I personally watch what I eat, and consume very little caffeince,
and even though it's not something I would consume more than
once a month, I would really like to try one of these.
