Chewable Insomnia!

Soon to become the love of clubbers and truckers alike, this product would provide a long-lasting and chewable version of the already much abused caffiene and taurine soft drink. With a little government cooperation a follow-up Vodka-RedBull gum would undoubtedly sell like hot-cakes.

Caffeinated Gum Offers Coffee Alternative http://www.erowid.o...eine_journal1.shtml
An article about Stay Alert. Sorry, no taurine or vodka. I think there was another discussion about alcoholic gum, and it turns out that alcohol dissolves gum, so that's out. [bear, Jun 29 2000, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       Sounds like a great idea! but you'd have to get the caffein kick from it and if with vodka, you'd have to get pissed off it. If it was just taste, no-one would buy it, cos it taste like cat piss.

       It was more of a guess than an opinion, but it does look like cat piss.

       What would be better is if they made a caffiene / taurine / vodka gum which DIDN'T taste of Red Bull. THEN it would sell like hot cakes...

       Agreed.

       I forget the name of it, but there is already a caffine impregnated gum on the market, but I forgot what it's called. Delivers about 50mg of caffine, in about five minuites of chewing. Market it into the same niche market as Gatorade gum.. sort of a sports-chew, performance enhancing, crack-smoking sort of gum.

       The name of the caffine-impregnated gum is "Stay Alert" (q.v.)

       And it too, tastes like cat's piss...

       I prefer to chew on Cat turds myself. If that don't keep you awake, I don't know what will.

       Red Bull is a total scam.

       I had to laugh at zippyanna's link. All that time & resources spent developing a chewing gum to keep people awake at work when all they have to do is employ a man with a stick to come and give you a poke every now & then. Isn't science wonderful?

If it isn't already, I'm sure, jutta, that you could probably get a grant for running 1/2bakery. Just put it forward as a research project.
