jolt.jpgThe MarketingProfs blog has a thought-provoking post today regarding caffeinated candy, commenting on a Wall Street Journal article on the same topic.

"The candy industry is rolling out new sweets packed with more than just sugar.

Candy Snob's not in the commentary business, at least when it comes to issues such as this, but the author asks some very interesting questions that you should check out if you're so inclined.
