| Can You Add CoffeeMallows to Coffee?
Lots of people are asking me if they can add our super-caffeinated marshmallows to coffee. Or even to hot chocolate. Personally, that amount of caffeine in one shot would make my head explode--but everyone has different levels of caffeine tolerance. Some people can take an enormous amount of caffeine without feeling they've propelled themselves off this planet. They even welcome the feeling of walking a few inches off the ground.
JavaMallows contain 280 mg of caffeine. Both CoffeeMallows and MoccaMallows contain 200 mg of caffeine. A cup of generic brewed coffee contains about 120 mg of caffeine. So if you add one of our hyper-caffeinated puffs of energy to that cup of coffee, you will boost the caffeine content to 320 mg. Take that under advisement if you tend towards heart palpitations.
When we created these marshmallows, we thought of them as a coffee or energy drink substitute. However, we quickly learned that many people viewed them as an add-on to a coffee drink, much as you'd put a plain marshmallow in a cup of hot chocolate.
For example, here's a great review from ThinkGeek's Online Shop:
"The Coffee and Mocha mallows have 200mg of caffeine per mallow and the Java mallows have 280 mg of caffeine (that's three and a half bottles of BAWLS worth, for those of you keeping score). Eat one of these Hyper-Caffeinated Coffee-Flavored Marshmallows and you will get a jolt of coffee taste, a massive charge of caffeine, and a smile on your face. For all those moments you don't have the minutes for coffee, you can still get the delicious taste and the much-needed caffeine you crave with Hyper-Caffeinated Coffee-Flavored Marshmallows. And we haven't even mentioned adding one to hot cocoa. Oh my! For nutrition information, click here.

They make it sound pretty good when you need that level of alertness. And there are times when such alertness could be a lifesaver or a job saver. So play with them as you want. Maybe cut one up and add just a piece to a hot drink--that is one suggestion we heard the other day. One mallow-lover (CaffeineDaddy, who will be carrying our products soon) thought of using small pieces to give a boost his hot coffee, a creative approach I hadn't thought of.
