Get That Caffeine Rush...from Popcorn

Coffee Substitute?

Too tired to drive carpool or take your kids to Mommy and Me classes? Looking for a new pick-me-up? Why not try popcorn?

It’s not just any old popcorn. It’s BioFUEL, the caffeine-infused popcorn produced at home by parents Amanda and Matthew Fitch.

“A regular bag of BioFUEL has as much caffeine in it as a strong cup of coffee,” Amanda Fitch told AOL News. “It’s sweet, salty and loaded with energy.”

Although the popcorn doesn’t taste at all like coffee, it’s loaded with a “proprietary blend” of all-natural ingredients, including caffeine from coffee beans.

It’s sweet and salty and apparently, it’s addictive.

“We get a lot of repeat customers who are hooked on BioFUEL. They say the popcorn is so good they can’t stop eating it. Some have even likened BioFUEL to cocaine. It’s that addicting,” Fitch said.

For those who need an extra fix, there’s BioFUEL XL, the super-caffeinated version of the popcorn that has as much caffeine as two cups of coffee.

Even better, Fitch says, the time-release formula ensures that the energy is long-lasting. While the stuff has become popular among college students pulling all-nighters, it’s also catching on among parents who need that extra energy boost.

In fact, Fitch says she snacks on the stuff to keep up with her two young sons.

Does the idea of caffeinated popcorn appeal to you? I’d be willing to try it, but I’d hate to see what would happen if my kids got a hold of it!

Luckily, there’s also decaf BioFUEL for kids.

“It tastes just like regular BioFUEL, but it’s better suited for kids. I wouldn’t give the regular kind to children or they may be wired all night. No parent wants that!” Fitch said.
