Nearly everyone loves chocolate.
And lots of us have to have coffee to jump start our morning.
Combine the two and you have our Does It Work product o' the week: Buzz Bites, a caffeinated candy. One square is supposed to give you as much as caffeine as a cup of joe.
When you want to find sleepy testers, head to an 8:30 a.m. class at college. Seth, Cameron and Melissa from Butler Community College all agreed to give them a shot.
Because everyone reacts to caffeine differently, each one of them take a different amount. Cameron takes one, Melissa chomps two and Seth goes for broke with three.
It takes just a few minutes to find out whether it works. Cameron can't keep his foot still and Seth's chair is in full-swivel mode. And all three can't stop talking. Their teacher insists they're usually very quiet!
Seth calls it a "jittery" feeling, and not exactly comfortable. But, keep in mind, he did take three.
Melissa says it's not like a coffee-buzz. She calls it a caffeine punch to the face! After all, they didn't sip the caffeine over 20 minutes.
Would they want to take it again? They each thought it would work to keep them awake while they drove, but didn't want it for their morning wake-me-up.
Does It Work?
They all say "definitely."
We ordered ours over the internet from Vroom Foods.
