Oh thank heaven for 7-11 extra caffiene shots

Its 40mgs of caffiene conviently packaged in little creamer containers. For convenience store coffee their coffee is ok, the little shots will definitely make buying their coffee more appealing. They have no decernable taste so I could see using it in a slurpee for a little pick me up during the summer when I am doing yard work.

    that picture says coffee on it - did you try it plain or in coffee? if it could be added to any drink w/o affecting the taste, that would be great! or just do a shot.

      I put it in coffee but tasted it before putting in the coffee. The taste was kind of neutral. Can't say what the sweet version tastes like because I haven't tried. I may need a slurpee later will report back.

        I tried some in black coffee today and didn't notice any difference in the taste.

          I added it to a slurpee. Tastes like coffee if you don't mix it well, mixed well it doesn't change the flavor but the cherry slurpee was very sweet so it may have masked the coffee. I really like the pina colada slurpee but they didn't have it today, next time they have it I will try it with the coffee shot.

            Don't put it in a yellow vitamin water - the color was actually worse than the taste, but it didn't taste too good...

        ok - just tried these and they're great. they definitely had a coffee flavor - but it was sweet. i just did it like a shot with a water chaser and really felt like i had had a cup of coffee. it was great. the guy let me have them for free - but that probably will not last long.
