Gotta keep the energy up. If you’re tired of the ho-hum buzz you get from run of the mill coffee breaks, there’s more than just java to turn to when you need to satisfy your caffeine fix. We’ve pulled a list together of products that’ll get you as wired as Demi without pain of guzzling another Joe-Shmo cuppa Joe.

1. Stay Puft: Caffeinated Marshmallows

2. Perky Jerky Caffeinated Beef Jerky

For an Atkins-approved treat that packs more than just a protein punch, there’s Perky Jerky. Billed as “the world’s first all-natural performance enhancing meat snack,” the stringy snack is amped with an additive derived from Guarana, an energy booster with approximately twice the caffeine content of a coffee bean.

3. Eco Lips Energy Lip Balm

Looking for more bang from your balm? Pack some caffeine-coated protection on your kisser with Eco Lips Energy lip balm. Each swipe infuses caffeine, green tea and vitamin B12 through one of the most absorbent parts of your body–your lips! Just imagining the high-energy make-out session possibilities.

4. Brownie Mix with a Little Extra Boost

Embrace your caffeine dependency and cater to your domestic side when you bake your Caffeinated ‘Magic’ Brownies. From crushed coffee beans, to coffee, to guarana, to straight caffeine, the ingredients in this high energy mix would have Betty Crocker zinging.  These jacked up java brownies are a pretty sweet way to show off your culinary skills and keep you pumped.

5. BioFuel Caffeinated Popcorn

No more dozing off during your latest snooze-fest selection from Netflix. How did that get on your queue anyway? BioFUEL caffeinated popcorn will keep you awake and alert until the final credits roll. The flavor is described as “salty sweet” and thanks to the proprietary blend of caffeine and flavorings BioFUEL adds to their kernels, they won’t be the only thing popping.

6. Shower Shock Soap

Add some power to your shower when you suds up with the world’s first caffeinated soap. Shower Shock is a vegetable based glycerine soap infused with caffeine anhydrous. Each bar of Shower Shock contains approximately 12 servings/showers per 4 ounce bar with 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving. But no, silly, you can’t eat it–the caffeine will be absorbed through your skin. For maximum effect soap up your entire bod and let the peppermint scented lather add some zest to your daily hygiene routine.

7. Bang! Caffeinated Ice Cream

I scream. You scream. We all scream after eating caffeinated ice cream. Highly enthusiastic screams. One scoop of Bang! Caffeinated Ice Cream contains as much caffeine as an energy drink. This uplifting frozen treat hails from Madison, Wisconsin and comes in several heart racing flavors including: Cooky Mint (mint ice cream with cookies and chocolate chunks), Peanut Butta (chocolate ice cream with peanut butter ripples), Iced Latte-Da (espresso ice cream with fudge swirl and chocolate chunks) and our favorite Heaps of Gold (dark chocolate ice cream with heaps of Heath bars).
