Chewing Gum & 7 Other Snacks That Have No Business Being Caffeinated (PHOTOS)

gumHey, wake up!! Good news for sleepyheads: Now you don't even have to hassle with the inconvenience of a grande latte to get your morning (or afternoon, or evening) buzz, thanks to Alert Energy Gum, Wrigley's soon-to-be-on-the-shelves new chew. Available in fruit AND mint flavors (why not mocha?), the gum is intended for consumers ages 25 and up who, I assume, are either incredibly tired or impatient or both.

Caffeinated gum isn't an entirely new concept, to be fair, but now that Wrigley's is in the game somehow the whole idea seems more legit. Or if not legit, at least more readily available. But ... really?! Do we really need caffeine in our chewing gum? Look, I'm not judging -- this is coming from someone who would probably just cease to function entirely without the aid of coffee -- but I just don't know if I can get behind the idea of caffeinated gum anymore than I can get behind the idea of any of these caffeinated snacks.
