I think more foods should have caffeine in them. I think all foods should have caffeine in them.

Clif bars with added caffeine are the lazy man's breakfast.

Caffeine in food might not be good for you overall, but you're guaranteed to shiat like a racehorse.  So that's a plus.  Now your shiat will be bloody, and that's bad.  But the toilet water will be pink.  That's good!

I remember caffeinated gum in the mid 90's and similar hubbub. That shiat tasted so bad it was it's own habit breaker. Anything with enough caffeine to have an effect without the volume of fluid in coffee or power drinks are going to taste like shiat.

If you want caffeine to have effects you'd better cut back. When you consume it regularly your body gets used to it. Cut it out of your life and it'll be there for when you really need a boost.

And as a result, food manufacturers are jittery.

So it's ok for food manufacturers to put an addictive habit forming substance in food that doesn't need to be there?

Like sugar?

13 years caffeine free, and damn proud of it.

Cutting caffeine out in the morning was the best thing I ever did.  I didn't realize how much I bounced between tasks and was distracted by pointless things until I had to cut out caffeine for a few months.  I ended up getting way more actual important work that required concentration done.

FTFA: The FDA's new look at added caffeine is in response to a caffeinated gum introduced this week by Wrigley. Called Alert Energy Gum, it promises "The right energy, right now."

Caffeine itself doesn't provide energy. It stimulates your body and creates a chemically-heightened sense of alertness. For people who are hypersensitive to caffeine, it jacks up their heart rate and their blood pressure, causes jitters, and even ringing in the ears (tinnitus). In more severe cases, it can even bring on symptoms similar to the effects of nerve damage.

Any time you take a chemical and add it to a food, the FDA gets to look into it to see if it could fark people up.  Even chemicals that occur in nature like caffeine.  This is no big deal.  More than likely, the companies adding the caffeine will show that they're adding X amount, dramatically lower than a cup of coffee or even a chocolate bar, and the FDA will say, "OK then.  Go ahead".  They don't have a lot of investigators, after all.

Now, if the new Twinkie company wants to put 18 coffee cups worth of caffeine in each Twinkie, they might have a problem.  But I want a case of those things.

Every once in a while, I like a tablespoon of instant coffee with a beer chaser. Still got your beer buzz, but keeps you going.

This is a huge blow to consumers and our rights in general. People will scoff but look at Four Loko and Sparks (well maybe just sparks as it was _kind of_ good in original formula) they step in, remove o,ur choices and for what? People's stupid actions? You can't legislate yourself out of a dumb and ignorant culture  It's just like our problems with drugs, I am firm believer with proper true education on the principles of actions and potential effects you would alleviate 80-90% of our problems with drugs. Show people the signs of addiction, show them what is happening to cause that, hey they might get help (or dare I say help themselves?). Of course all the drug education in the world if you just want to 'get yours' consequences be damned and that kind of seems like the kind of country we live in... but my point is, this shouldn't be looked at with anything other derision. Limiting our freedoms and choices is not the path to a healthy populace.

If you'll look at the historical record, you'll see government doesn't immediately ban something.  They work up to it.  For example, 50 years ago they started studying the effects of smoking.  A few years later they banned smoking ads on tv.  Now it's illegal to smoke almost everywhere.  I'm not saying this is a bad thing.  First  government studies the effects of caffeine added to foods.  They'll no doubt say it's for the children.  Give them time and they'll find some excuse to ban added caffeine or regulate it to death.
