Tampa Named the Most Caffeinated City in the US

A recent poll shows Tampa is the most caffeinated city in the United States. In the study, the Florida city is closely followed by Seattle, birthplace of the coffeehouse culture and coffee titan Starbucks, with Chicago placing third. Rounding out the top five are the top two most populated US cities, New York and Los Angeles. The poll looked at all caffeine consumption, including coffee, tea, energy drinks, chocolate, soda, pain relievers, and caffeine pills. The firm that conducted the study, Prince Market Research, also generated a list of the least caffeinated cities in America. The sleepiest city turned out to be the California twin cities area of Riverside/San Bernardino, followed by Atlanta, San Diego, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Dallas. Overall, 49 percent of all people surveyed said they drink caffeinated coffee on a daily basis. A surprising 20 percent admitted to drinking cola every day, tied with tea.

I'm taken aback to hear this, since everybody — from friends to people I pass on the street — seems to be more tired and less wired these days. What do you think of these numbers?

it's kind of interesting to me to see that Tampa is more caffienated than a lot of others in the country. i used to live in FL and i didn't drink coffee as much while i was down there - it was all about water and smoothies..but i guess tampa is just a different type of place than the east coast of FL

Ha Ha Jessie! I would have to second that one- Portland seems like it has more Starbucks than Seattle! I went to the mall the other day and there were 2, one on each end of the mall ( both with huge long lines). The neighborhood I live in there are 4 Starbucks within a mile of each other! And that is not even counting the independent coffee shops in the same neighborhood. Its like crack over here!

Dallas is on the list of least caffeinated cities? Really? I guess that's a good thing, but I kind of find it hard to believe. :p

maybe all that caffeine consumption is making people's bodies immune. or they're so tired b/c it takes a lot of effort worrying about staying awake and being productive and going out and buying something with caffeine in it! lol

i drink coffee every single day - i'm a college student and some days it feels like that's the only way i live. it also doesn't surprise me that ny and la are both in the top five - and i go back and forth to live between both regularly.
