Even though it might be a long while (or never) until you get your first taste of Palcohol, powdered caffeine is ready to roll onto the market. Sure, full-time student and "genius chef" Nikko Lobato has used the revved-up powder to create an energy veggie burger, but that's not all it's good for. You can sprinkle the " world's first non-bitter caffeine in a handy shaker bottle" on just about anything, as the product's Indiegogo campaign demonstrates in an informative video.
No longer chained to the confines of coffee and Red Bull, CaffeinAll is a powder that instantly makes any food an energy food-- that means (ladies) your morning yogurt and afternoon salad can now give you more than just boring nutrient-based energy.
According to the video, caffeine helps you prevent everything from headaches to strokes to diabetes, and coffee won't cut it because it stains your teeth. However, the shaker seems to spurt out random amounts of the powder, raising questions about how easily you could accidentally overdose yourself on caffeine. Plus, that dry, sad salad just made us never want to eat a salad again, but the prospect of caffeinated French fries did get our attention.
A product-user known only as Raymond commented that, ""after trying this product and seeing its versatility it has me hooked for life." Hooked for life? Yikes.
However, we understand the need to stay pumped up all day every day, so if you want to contribute to CaffeinAll's Indiegogo, the project just needs about $20,000 to be fully funded.
