Geek Fuel: Caffeinated Candy, Snack, Lipgloss and Soap

A very long time ago someone started a nasty rumor that geeks live on soda, candy and junk food. While I steer clear of junk food, many of you already know we at the Sugar Network office have a serious collective sweettooth. So how do we stay awake when we blog into the wee hours? Caffeine. Sweet caffeine.

I was doing a little research about what other geeks are using to fuel their creative juices (seriously, a girl can only drink so many Diet Cokes a day!) and stumbled upon ThinkGeek's collection of caffeinated candy, mints and even soap. Most of the items have at least as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. The Mega Caffeine Candy Sampler, v6.0 looks like the entry point into the sweet caffeine universe, offering samples of nine varieties for $22.99. I'll never sleep again.

Shock-a-lots are amazingly delicious...and addicting. IMO, they taste better than the chocolate covered coffee beans from Caribou Coffee and other coffee shops. On the down side, they're expensive.
