Scientist develops caffeinated doughnuts

    There is just absolutely no need to contaminate doughnuts or other baked goods with caffeine. :grumpy:

    There seems to be some kind of caffeine craze in this country right now. I just don't think it's a good thing.

    Finally! This is what I have been waiting for! It is an opportunity to combine two addictions into one.

    Have you heard how healthy it is :smile: apparently the myth about it being bad for you only applies to those with pre-existing heart condtions. It only seems to raise blood pressure in those who aren't used to it, it's a bit like asparin. The world of the caffeine haters is actually a fantasy or not as relevant as we thought. It's been shown that caffeine can actually decrease the build up of cholesteral.

    :uhh: You're aware that there's already caffeine in chocolate, right? So, chocolate doughnuts are already caffeinated. :biggrin:

    Caffeine in doughnuts!? That's crazy! Next thing you know, they'll start putting pot in brownies!

    Nah...

    I'm going to kick anyones ass who says chocolate is bad, because it's a mood enhancer and because it's like catnip. :tongue: :smile: :wink:

    And tea for that matter, we have fought wars over it before, and may well do so again, caffeine is the drug of the nation: that and TV as Ice Cube once said, it kinda replaced the opiate of the masses :smile:

    Geeze chocolate on a caffeinated doughnut plus coffee. Too many nervous edgy people getting even more jittery from too much caffeine. :surprised

    I'm one of those people that don't feel the effects of caffeine.

    Wow, it took them that long to figure out how to put caffeine in doughnuts :biggrin:

    I always say:
    Tea: the drink of the gods
    Coffee: well you get the idea

    This should really improve people's moods during morning rush hour, don't you think? :biggrin:

    But, hey, you have to admire someone who has the nerve to rebel against conformity and work on developing a way to make a doughnut even less healthy than they already are rather than trying to make them more healthy. I mean, once they get rid of all those trans fats, what other point would there be to eating them if they can't be caffeinated? :rofl: And, I'm sure all those people who need a morning caffeine boost, but don't like coffee are applauding this great advance in doughnutology! Afterall, a can of Coke just doesn't go all that well with doughnuts. Now you can enjoy a glass of milk with your doughnut and still get your daily requirement of caffeine. It's pure genius! :biggrin: :devil: *cackles in an evil genius sort of way*

    Would that involve genetic modification of cows? Caffeinated from the source.

    Excellent idea! Quick, patent it before someone steals your idea! It's brilliant, just brilliant! :biggrin:

    Coming soon: Caffeinated Baby Food :biggrin:

    Interesting aside: Some dark, leafy, green vegetables are an excellent source of nicotine.

    Edit: Caffeinated milk is an excellent idea!!!

    Too late! Public disclosure disqualifies one from patenting an idea!

    If someone wants to patent something - do not mention it in the public domain before applying for the patent.

    Uh oh, we better delete that before anyone sees it Evo! :biggrin: Actually, I think you have a year from the time of public disclosure, but we can always patent the process for caffeinating milk (that's going to be a bit tougher to work out though).
