Mountain Dew 55.0 (no caffeine in Canada):

Canadians screwed again...
2002-12-23 8:25:36 AM  
What is this world coming to? They make a Mountain Dew with no caffeine? That would be like eating a 16oz Porterhouse SOY steak. Eeeeeeeeewwwwwww.

Nothing beats cuban coffee! It's like liquid crack. Your supposed to drink it in little shots, but I just pour the whole pot (About 5 shots) in a normal coffee cup.

Mmmmm, breakfast of champions!

I think it's funny that when they first brought out Kick and Surge, they marketed it like it had near-Jolt levels of caffeine...obviously trying to outdo Mt Dew. Kind of surprised to see Pepsi One near the top of the list though.
2002-12-23 8:37:12 AM  
And now that I think about it there's a Steak and Shake not too far from here that has fountain Surge. Nothing like a nice big glass of something that looks like Prestone. ;)

So Canadians can't get caffiene, but their weed laws will be relaxed.

In the US, caffeine in soda is legal, weed is not.

Go figure.
2002-12-23 9:03:05 AM  
Ironbar - um ... where USians are psychotic, Canadians are catatonic? I see a clash of cultures here. I mean - caffeine *and* weed - what would happen?

"Does dark roast coffee have less caffeine than light roast?
It really depends on how you measure the caffeine. If you measure by weight you actually have more caffeine in dark roast because the water loss if faster than the caffeine loss. If you measure by volume you have less caffeine because the beans expand as they roast. "

What a putz!@! How about measuring it by how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee produced by it!
2002-12-23 9:12:34 AM  
BenJammin - ooooh but that depends on whether you measure out the coffee for your machine by volume or .. uh .... by ... erm ...

I'll just go off and make myself a nice cuppa rosie, shall I?

Afri-Cola is great. It's made with real sugar, not that "high fructose corn syrup" crap. It's the best tasting cola I've tried. Unfortunately, it's also $1 for a 11.15-oz bottle at the only store in Tampa that carries it.
2002-12-23 9:24:43 AM  
Really? How much is that in metric?
2002-12-23 9:31:06 AM  
I live in Tampa, what store carries it? I would like to try it out.
2002-12-23 9:34:42 AM  
Godfrey- Which store carries it, I've been ordering it off the net. I wish I knew that stuff was right here.
2002-12-23 9:36:52 AM  
I prefer to get my personality enhancement from a Starbucks Venti Traditional, Half and Half with 4 packets of the blue stuff. One at 7AM and a refill at 9AM.

Incidentally, the best Starbucks in the USA is located at the Union Street Station in downtown Gainesville, Florida.

Godfrey I'm from a little town called Dublin, Texas where Dr. Pepper is still made with 100% pure cane sugar. We have people driving hundreds of miles to come get the stuff. It certainly tastes much better so I know exactly what you mean.
2002-12-23 9:39:22 AM  
Hey, I'm Farking by myself here at work today, and I was hoping someone would post some NSFW weeniers.

So what do I get.... caffeine links?? WTF??
2002-12-23 9:40:25 AM  
They're posting article about soft drinks, but not about Joe Strummer? wtf?
2002-12-23 9:42:07 AM  
I highly recommend the Last Item on the list (yerba mate). Not nearly as hard on the tummy, has fiber and vitamins, and mateine has less 'edgy' side effects than caffeine.

Drip 115-175
Espresso 100mg of caffeine
1 serving (1.5-2oz)

Brewed 80-135
Instant 65-100
Decaf, brewed 3-4
Decaf, instant 2-3
Tea, iced (12 ozs.) 70
Tea, brewed, imported 60
Tea, brewed, U.S. 40
Tea, instant 30
Mate 25-150mg

2002-12-23 9:50:09 AM  
did you go to the afri-cola site and view that nun commercial? it was like watching caligula.
(really bad quasi porno with roman dudes)

strange, yet yummy.
2002-12-23 10:03:18 AM  
On a radio station in Cali I listened to there was a "freak news" story about some kid who robbed a convenience store to support his 11+ Redbull a day habit.

my asshole hurts

What kind of lube do you use?

Jolt 71.2

Mmm, Jolt. I miss that stuff. I can't seem to find it anymore in Virginia and it's really starting to piss me off.

Sweet nectar of the gods, which kept me up for all night gaming sessions, why hast thou forsaken me?!

I had Afri-cola back in 1991 in Fussen Germany. The cans had sterotypical Afican figures with red lips and big afros. I guess the NAACP hasn't gone overseas lately...
2002-12-23 10:40:59 AM  
Bawls is 80mg per 10ozs. and it tastes better than redbull. and cheaper around here... redbull is 2.79 while bawls is only 1.99. also you can make about a hundred jokes while you aqre holding the cobolt blue bottle.
2002-12-23 10:48:38 AM  
I'm polishing off a Mountain Dew right now.
Pretty radical eh kids?
2002-12-23 10:54:28 AM  
FatherG There's a distributor locator at or you can get a case from
2002-12-23 10:58:33 AM  
Here's one to try. Brew a strong pot of coffee using a caffeinated water beverage like water joe. Too scared to try this myself. Anyone?
2002-12-23 11:01:31 AM  
I wonder how much caffeine is in Moxie?
2002-12-23 11:18:26 AM  
if i was the entrepeneurial type,id start a company that sells caffeinated chocolate(as in more caffeine than regular chocolate).

i also wanna try making coffee out of various liquids sometime like soda's, booze,juice etc.
2002-12-23 11:24:58 AM  
Try "Hacker Trail Mix" some time. Just mix 1 part coffee beans and 1 part M&Ms, mix and eat! Yummy!
2002-12-23 11:40:51 AM  
A Starfarks in downtown Gainesville? I left just in time...
2002-12-23 11:45:49 AM  
AbbyNormal: Or you can try Ranger Pudding. Open MRE, find crackers, cocoa mix, coffee, creamer, sugar, 1 Qt canteen. Mix ingrediants to desired consistency. Enjoy.

Fireblade: Thats how I like my slaves!


the above rascist statement was uttered by a friend of mine in response to that same joke
2002-12-23 12:15:40 PM  
Whichever it is, I could sure use one. Slow day without a boobies link makes Kpar90 a sleepy boy.
2002-12-23 12:17:18 PM  
Gotta love those organic chemists!

Anyway, there is some type of coffee that is popular now that is actually first eaten by some dog-like animal, pooped out, removed from the feces by roasters, roasted, and brewed up. I tried getting an article about it posted, but I guess it wasn't fark-worthy.
They say the coffee tastes "earthy." I'd imagine it must.
2002-12-23 12:26:41 PM  
someone asked up there what 'Bawls' is im not shure if anyone answered you but i am. Its a drink tie-in for the game 'Run Like Hell' and its not to bad either. Grab your Bawls and Run Like Hell
2002-12-23 12:27:49 PM  
I have yet to try Red Bull. I heard it tastes like cough syrup. Is this true?
2002-12-23 12:33:01 PM  
I kept track of how much Mountain Dew I drank this year. Ill give you the number later but right now Im thinking a pissed away at least $400 on the stuff
2002-12-23 12:44:16 PM  
I tried Red Bull once, tasted like fizzy Hawaiian Punch. Mind you, this was in Waikiki, so I could have just been drunk.
2002-12-23 12:51:13 PM  
Caffeine has a bitter taste? I thought Caffeine fell into that orderless/tasteless catagory... How then does one explain Water Joe? (Water with caffeine - tastes just like water).

Bawls is pretty terrible. Tastes like cream soda. Ick.
2002-12-23 1:07:36 PM  
How sad! I have the exact molecule for caffeine GIF, but my html skills are suspended cause I was bad! :(
2002-12-23 1:33:58 PM  
ImNotaBuddhist I've heard that Dr. Pepper makes good coffee. No, really, I'm not just saying that to mention Dr. Pepper, I think there was some discussion of it on /. or something a while back.

No Cheerwine on the list? Musta been made up north.

Don't go too far south either, you can't get Cheerwine past Georgia.
2002-12-23 2:24:23 PM  
I wonder how much caffiene was in Josta?
2002-12-23 2:24:31 PM  
I'm bored. Maybe I'll try brewing a cup of coffee using Mountain Dew...
2002-12-23 5:27:11 PM
