New caffeine gummies have been released by the Seattle Gummy Company, and they pack a serious punch. According to Foodbeast, each gummy contains slightly more caffeine than the average 8 oz. cup of coffee.
The gummies are called Mocca Shots High Energy Gummies, and according to the Seattle Gummy Company's website "work 5x faster than coffee" because of the way they're absorbed into the body.
The Mocca Shots come in two flavors: chocolate raspberry and chocolate orange. The Seattle Gummy Company claims that combining chocolate with the caffeine reduces the jittery side effect associated with caffeine.
(For more information on this idea, here is information on one study of how a caffeine and cocoa combo affected participants; it was sponsored by the Hershey Company.)
According to FoodBev Media, the company claims their gummies have the highest caffeine concentration currently available on the market.
The Mocca Shots are going for $33 for a box of 12 pouches, with each pouch containing two gummies. Each gummy contains 100mg of caffeine, while an average 8 oz. cup of coffee has 95mg.
There is also an option to buy a "sample pack", which is a four-pack of gummies (two of each flavor) for $9.99.
