I am a caffeine addict. There I've said it. And no, I don't need a support group to talk about it because I have no intention of ever attempting to give it up. I love the smell, the taste and the mere idea of coffee.

I love it in all its myriad forms too; hot, cold, frozen (coffee & mocha-flavored ice cream), gelatin (yup, my mom used to make the best coffee-flavored "jello" & my dad loved it), in cakes, pies, cookies, candy- you name it, I love it!

Now those "nutraceutical" brainiacs at Nootrobox have created a product which gives you the boost of energy you crave from caffeine without the frequent bathroom breaks that result from drinking your gallon of java everyday. Go Cubes Chewable Coffee are coffee-flavored gummy candies which come four to a package and promise to give you the mental sharpness you need to attack life on the run.

Go Cubes have 100 mg of caffeine per 2 chewy cubes, which, give or take, is what you would get in 1 cup of coffee. Their website indicates the Go Cubes are made using "cold-brew coffee and premium ingredients" and each pack includes three flavors, mocha, pure drip and latte.

This chewy "future of coffee" (their words) product also contains vitamin B-6 and B-12, as well as L-theanine, an amino acid found in green tea, which is imbued (depending on the material you read) with all kinds of magical properties, not the least of which is enhancing caffeine's good effects and modifying its undesirable ones.

The minute these become available locally I plan on trying them, probably with a cup of coffee!
