  • Trying to be caffeine free

    To Cheryl from October 7th – I too LOVE Dr. Pepper and they DO make it caffeine free. You just can’t find it anywhere. I guess all the Dr. Pepper lovers must unite and insist that our local stores carry it.

  • Linda

    I am very sensitive to caffeine and have to avoid all caffeine. I would love to have a chart of all foods and drinks that contain any amounts of caffeine.

    How much caffeine is in a semi-sweet chocolate chip?


  • Kevin

    I think your site is great – thanks for all of the information re: caffeine contents of various drinks and food. For some reason, drinking coffee or tea in the morning now makes me sick to my stomach — never ever had this problem before (the last 3 weeks or so). Could it be from the caffeine? I know coffee contains more caffeine than tea, yet I get this reaction drinking either one now. Any thoughts?

    PS: from your chart, it looks like I would have to drink 3 cans of Classic Coke in the am to match the caffeine in one cup of coffee — could that be right? Jeeze, I always thought Coke had more caffeine in it than that!

  • ted

    Kevin, I doubt that it would be the caffeine unless you have developed an ulcer. since you never had the problem before. Do you put milk in them? Could be that.
    yes, coke doesn’t contain as much caffeine as most people think.

  • charlie

    wow. it’s amazing how one feels when one gains some idea of the limits of the human body. I mean, 58 no-doz? that’s a pretty small number, but now I know to only take 50 lol

  • mike

    Caffeine can also cause stomach issues if you have gastritis – similar symptoms to having an ulcer, but not as serious (caught early). At three weeks, it’s really time to see a doctor. In the mean time, cut out caffeine, chocolate, dairy, fatty foods, rich foods – that could help. (I’m not a doctor, would love to play one on TV, but been there / done that with the symptoms.)

  • brianna

    thanks for this information it is a great help =]
    but its also kinda scary. i think im gonna change some of my eating habits.

  • Kurt

    I think you are on to something here. I love your site–it’s fun and educational. I think you have something wrong though…isn’t the substance in chocolate called “theobromine”, not “caffeine”? And isn’t it true that theobromine has different effects on your body than caffeine? Similar, but not the same, right? I got this information from the encyclopedia. Maybe you have better sources, or at least different sources, so you can check it out and update your site, or correct me if I’m wrong.

  • ted

    The two are practically identical chemically and there really is a lot of debate whether there is any difference. The chemical in gaurana has a different name as well but is identical to caffeine but companies try to say it works differently and try not to include it in their caffeine amounts, but their isn’t much scientific research to support that.

  • sue

    Can you tell me how much caffeine is in a heaped teaspoon of Milo . Thanks

  • Alicia

    You listed the caffeine content for Hershey’s Chocolate bar and kisses….but as a fan of “DOVE” chocolate, I was wondering if it contained more, less, or about the same amount of caffeine as Hershey’s?

  • ted

    most milk chocolate is about the same.

  • Ashley

    I’m curious to know about the caffeine content of the new McDonald’s cafe beverages – specifically the medium latte. Everyone’s chatting about what a bargain it is, but if I’m really gonna make the switch, I need to know price/mg of caffeine. I’m not finding it anywhere via google.

  • ted

    We have the caffeine amounts of latte’s, espresso, filter coffee, etc. iin our database. Coffee is coffee despite the branding and will have roughly the same amount. It is impossible for us to list every brand and every store’s varieties.

  • Kelly

    Also wondering about dove chocolate, the bite size squares?

    giving up soda to try to conceive, but i figure these chocs dont have that much.. please help

  • ted

    chocolate is listed in the database, we aren’t listing every brand sorry.

  • Razberry Smoozie

    Caffeine in softdrinks can cause you to sometimes have sleeping disorders,bipolar disorder, sometimes schizophrenia, which is a mental disorder. It increases the risk of having parkinson, raises fatty acids in the blood, irritates stomach lining, makes digestion lest effective, and many other problems. I like tea, but I also think it is destructive to my body. :)

  • Razbeery Smoozie

    Go on to find more info and what caffeine does, it’s information is reliable.
    I really like the “The Death By caffeine” on energyfiend, it’s cool. B-)
    I have a question, does Diet Coke actually not make you lose weight, or is just full of aspartame?
    I don’t know the answere. :( :(

  • ted

    There’s lots of research out there about artificial sweetners and weight loss here’s a good post

  • Martin R.

    Caffeinated beef jerky – didn’t see it in the list, and it does exist; 3.5 oz bag contains 110mg of caffeine (that’s about 3 times the caffeine content per ounce (although it’s not fluid) of many brand name energy drinks).
