Caffeinated Coffee Condiments

Not just for coffee
  [vote for,

('Nother long one) People have been proposing caffeinated this or that, or more caffeine here and there. Let me help end all that.

Caffeine is available in powder to those who have a restaurateur's license (at least in California it is.)

Too much caffeine is deadly, approx. equal to 100 cups of coffee.

I propose caffeine syrup. Where one teaspoon of syrup contains just less than a cup of coffee's worth of caffeine. The thickening agent to make the syrup concoction? Carrageenan. It's the thickening agent in fake creamers.

At that concentration, one would have to drink a half gallon of syrup in one sitting to have a chance of overdosing. Considering that most humans don't drink enough water, the likely hood of this happening would be only by a suicidal person. And those suicidal people have access to caffeine pills if they want to overdose on caffiene. Very rare.

With that out of the way, I propose caffeinated sugar syrup, caffeinated creamer, caffeinated cream and lastly caffeinated plain syrup.

Leaving you open to caffeinate your breakfast cereal, pancakes, coffee, milk, frosting, tea, etc.

Grind some of these up. [DrCurry, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]


       This would be perfect for those days I've bleached my teeth and want to avoid the staining effects of coffee while still getting that much needed caffeine jolt. Hello caffeinated Fettucini Alfredo!

       Coffee syrup is quite available - I used to use it in England to make coffee. Quite forgotten the name of ti, though.

       You got the stuff?
Yeah, man - for you, 10 bucks.
Has it been stepped on?
No, man - straight from Columbia.
