There's a New, Caffeinated Version of Cracker Jacks Called "Cracker Jack'd"
Here's the latest and strangest product to follow the trend of squeezing caffeine into EVERYTHING. Frito-Lay has announced they're about to release a new line of caffeinated CRACKER JACKS. And to their credit, they've got a pretty good name: Cracker Jack'd. They'll have the same caramel popcorn and peanuts, but with something they call "power bites" wafers mixed in. And those are made with coffee.
A two-ounce bag of Cracker Jack'd will have about 70 milligrams of caffeine. For comparison's sake, that's about the same as a regular-sized can of Red Bull, which has 80 milligrams of caffeine.
But it's SIGNIFICANTLY less than a cup of Starbucks coffee. A tall regular coffee at Starbucks has 260 milligrams of caffeine. It's also about HALF of the caffeine you get in a 5-Hour Energy bottle.
Cracker Jack'd will be in stores before the end of the year.
