After these caffeinated foods, you might think twice about just grabbing a cup of coffee to get your energy up.

Caffeine is a white crystalline xanthine alkaloid that acts as a stimulant and is often found in drinks like coffee and tea. When ingested in high quantities, it gives people massive amounts of energy. However, once adopted as a regular stimulant, it can be a highly addictive drug. Furthermore, those who ingest a lot of caffeine regularly end up needing more and more to feel the same effects.

Eating caffeinated foods is a good way to still get a kick, while not ingesting as much actual caffeine. Baked goods like cakes and muffins are popular choices for caffeinated foods. You can also pick up caffeinated suckers to keep the sweet tooth satisfied.
