Life management blog Wise Bread takes a look at where caffeine is hiding in various popular foods and drinks we encounter every day, comparing caffeine levels in various coffees, teas, sodas, energy drinks, foods and medications. It comes as no surprise that a Starbucks Grande double-brewed coffee packs a whopping 380 mgs of the jitterbug (a 340g can of iced tea has 17mg, as a point of reference), but some other places you'll find caffeine lurking include:
- Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar, 1.55 oz: 9mg
- Excedrin Extra Strength, 2 tablets: 130 mg
- Decaffeinated black tea, 8 oz: 2 mg
Hit up the post for Wise Bread's full run down on the caffeine dosages in an assortment of foods and drinks. (Did you know Diet Coke has 12mg more caffeine than Coke? [47 vs. 35] ) Are you a confirmed caffeine junkie, or are you trying to cut back on caffeine? What's the hardest part? Share your coping tips in the comments.
