snack foods with caffeine

DD's assignment for health class tomorrow is to bring in "a food or drink that has caffeine in it"
I'd like to send something a bit more interesting than a Diet Coke

The idea of foods with added caffeine -- like amped up beef jerky -- really weirds me out. But when I tried to google it, I couldn't find much that wasn't the created caffeine buzz. Really, we don't need caffeine added Cracker Jack!

And although I am sure we already have something in our house, one of those caffeine-you-never-thought-about foods, even my chocolate covered coffee beans don't mention caffeine on the label. Hmmm....

Any suggestions?

So the label has to list caffeine as an ingredient?

http://www.ellenskitchen.com/faqs/caffeine.html

Right now, it will be hard to find it listed as an ingredient per these articles. You may have to go with one of the soft drinks or tea or even one of those 'jacked up' products.

I don't know that it has to list it -- but it will be interesting to see how they have an intelligent conversation on the subject otherwise. Unless that's the point....
I guess my fear is that unless it shows on the label, it's hard to say you met the requirement. But I refuse to buy Monster Energy Drink for a 12 year old, when they get to eat/drink the stuff in class.

Guarana, yerba mate and kola nuts are natural sources of caffeine so anything with these on on the label would work, I'd think. Also, these are really a "hidden" source of caffeine in many products and can pack quite a punch.

Also, this topic perked my curiosity so I did a quick google search. "Hidden caffeine" brought up some interesting sites that may be helpful for you and your daughter.

Hershey's has a site listing caffeine content of their products: http://www.thehersheycompany.com/nut.../caffeine.aspx Send her favorite Hershey's candy bar and print the list for proof that there's caffeine in there.

Chocolate actually has very, very little caffeine. There is about as much caffeine in chocolate as there is in DEcaf coffee.
