Snickers Charged - The Aftermath of a Caffeine Candy Bar
Yesterday we reviewed the limited edition Snickers Charged bar with 60 milligrams of caffeine, taurine and other B vitamins. The net opinion of the review was that it did give you a kick, but at the expense of a funky aftertaste.
But there is now more to report...the crash...
Indeed, all that caffeine et al give you the get up and go you may need, but you crash hard. A sugar low of epic proportions hit me out of the blue about 1 1/2 or 2 hours after eating the Snickers Charged bar. Dizziness, the shakes, and overall fuzziness hit me like a ton of bricks. I was driving my car at the time, so this is not how you want to feel. The crash passed, but only after downing a Coke and eating a blueberry muffin. I don't drink Red Bull or other energy drinks, but I'd assume the crash is similar.
My advice for both readers and Mars - stick to the original Snickers bar.
