Meat with Caffeine in it

post #1 of 12

Saw some caffeinated beef jerky in the store yesterday.

Does anyone else think there's something very wrong with that?

That is all right with me. There are times when coffee just doesn't sit right, and popping caffeinated jerky sounds like a great alternative. Now: what store?

As long as they don't put jerky in my coffee I'm ok with it.

Sounds like a good food for bakcpacking, trail runs / epic MTB rides.

It was on a hook near the checkout counter.

Caffeine is a joke.

 

Meth or Cocaine is the way to go. cool.gif

 

Just sayin'.

 

 

 

 

I prefer redbull with my vodka.

Compared to what else is in commercial jerky, the caff is the least of your worries.

Gotta love "mechanically separated chicken"  yum,,,, and don't forget the MSG deguised as another chemical name....

 

But then again, it's fun to eat extruded meat products......

Exactly what I was thinking. Downing two cups of coffee and biking an entire day isn't usually too good for the stomach. Not to mention coffee's penchant for pulling moisture out of your body.

Yeah, but mechanically separated chicken is so tempting....

The thing is... Caffeine works by causing the release of sugar stored in cells. This is why different cultures have added some kind of sugar to their caffeinated beverages.
So the very idea of a caffeinated food with no sugar ( or at least carbs) seems way off.

Maybe someone should try it and tell me how it works for them? I don't eat meat, so I'd have trouble judging the caffeine lift while also feeling nauseous from eating the jerky.

That ingredients list was for a Slim Jim, which isn't even actual jerky. Real jerky is just dried/smoked meat, hence  the fact that it can cost more than filet mignon. From the 'Perky Jerky' description, it sounds like real beef jerky--no mechanically separated chicken involved.
