I've got two boys that play travel baseball and I spend a huge portion of my summer at the ball diamonds. My wife used to get mad at me because before just about every game I would stop at the gas station and get a bag of sunflower seeds and a diet Mountain Dew. 3-4 dollars probably 4 times a week adds up I guess. My wife sure thinks it does! When I came across caffeinated sunflower seeds on the web I figured I had a solution to the problem. After the seeds came in I was suprised at the size of the bag for the price. It seemed kind of smaller than I was expecting, maybe it is because I go through a lot of seeds on a weekly basis. When I tasted them I was pleasantly suprised at the flavor. The seeds come in four flavors: Honey BBQ, Dill Pickle, Salt and Pepper, and Original. I was trying the Honey BBQ and think that they are just as good as any BBQ seeds I have had. My son tried the Dill Pickle and liked them thought I thought they were a little less powerful than they could have been. But with Dill Pickle that's not always a bad thing. Getting back to the portion size, I discovered that because each bag has 145mg caffeine in them my need for so many at one time decreased and the 1.75 ounce bag was more than enough for a two hour game. I had a hard time believing it but it was true. I had a bottled water (non caffeinated type) with them and felt the kick enough that I was into the game but not jittery. The seeds themselves were larger than avererage and had a good coating on them. The caffeine is said to be infused into the seed so whats on the outside is for flavor. Overall the product is worth the money for the size to me because of the amount needed to keep busy.....thanks to the caffeine.

When I first heard about this product I was scratching my head. O.K. I thought. I like beef jerky and I love caffeine. After I got the samples in the first thing I noticed was the interestingly cool packaging. I know, I know, packaging whatever. But, it's kind of cool with that evil bull kind of looking logo. So the second thing I noticed is that I could not find the word "caffeine" anywhere on the label. Odd I thought. The words "Flavored With Guarana" were on the front so I googled it. Guarana is a fruit from Brazil that has a bean or seed, or something that has like 2 1/2 times more caffeine in it than a coffee bean. Lets give it a try I thought. When I opened the package I got an immediate wiff of good smelling stuff. It was a sweet smell and you could just tell it was going to be tasty. And it was. The most important part of beef jerky for me is the tenderness. This has a tenderness like no other "beef jerky" I have ever had. There are some nugget products at c-stores that are tender but they are really processed. This is REAL jerky. The flavor was something like a sweet terriyaki but not. Tough to pinpoint but it was really tasty. The samples I had came in a one or two ounce bag. The two ounce bag was enough for me even though I can eat pounds of jerky if unattended. Maybe it was the caffeine that led my mind away from eating more but I was satisfied. Overall this was an excelent product that tasted realy good, had a caffeine kick, and was reasonably priced. Only negative is you have to wash your hands when your done because it is sticky. Thats how tender it is.

Scale: 1 to 10 (10 being best)
