Get Your Caffeine Fix Via Sunflower Seeds

Wanna break the coffee habit? Why not trade it in for a sunflower seed one instead? SumSeeds are sunflower seeds that are "SUPERCHARGED" with caffeine, taurine, lysine and ginseng. However, they claim that they're premium roasted to taste good too. I know that some folks are hooked on their caffeine, but am I crazy to think that caffeinated sunflower seeds might be a step too far?

Three packs of SumSeeds goes for $9.95 and if you purchase a whole case of them, you'll get a free "supercharged" shirt too.

I think they will just make the addiction worse. Soon you'll be drinking coffee AND eating a lot of these seeds... :OY:

...I think the idea of "supercharged" sunflowers is just stupid. :(

Yeah, I don't know that ayone simply wants to break their "coffee habit"... it's the "caffine habit" that's the problem. If it weren't for the caffine, I never would have quit coffee, I love it!

If you're trying to kick the caffeine addiction, would this not make it worse? Sunflower seeds are addictive in their own right, add caffeine to the mix... I don't know, I wouldn't eat them.

There is also a trend toward offering all sorts of new seed flavors which is great. It’s amazing how many new flavors there are. Potato chips have gone through similar metamorphoses. I hope we see more of the flavored seeds that are already hulled. The new caffeinated sunflower seeds seem to be a very hot topic. Caffeinated sunflower seeds? What’s not to love! Chris

I'm a serious caffeine addict...I would probably try these, and if I liked them - eat them every so often.

Little expensive too. I'll stick with either sunflower seeds or coffee. But not together!

So how many of those seeds have the caffeine equivalent of a cup of coffee? Since I couldn't find out on the Sum Seeds site, I think I'll stick to my lattes.

I enjoy sunflower seeds but I dont see coffee addicts replacing their morning java with a handful of inconvenient seeds. What will they caffeinate next? Not a good habit to be in...
