Awake Chocolate is a brand of chocolate where caffeine is infused with the milk chocolate in order to create a much higher caffeinated snack than milk chocolate would deliver on its own.

Awake advertises that a bar of their chocolate contains "about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee".

We did a little investigating and nailed down a more exact amount for the caffeine content of Awake Chocolate.

The manufacturers claim the Bars have 100 mg caffeine, and the bites have 50 mg. It's unclear whether this is the caffeine added, or the total caffeine

44 grams of milk chocolate typically contains about 8.8 mg of caffeine (according to the USDA).  So this could bring the total up to around 109 mg in a bar.

Awake Chocolate also comes in a few other sizes and varieties.

  • Caramel
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Peanut Butter
  • Dark Chocolate Mint
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut butter

Dark chocolate variations will have slightly more caffeine - as dark chocolate has more caffeine than milk chocolate. This could potentially lift the total caffeine in a dark chocolate bar to around 120 mg (entirely dependent on the level of dark chocolate).

Caution: A whole bag of the Awake Milk Chocolate Bites would contain 530mg of caffeine, so follow the 1 bite per serving suggestion on the bag.

This brand was originally launched in Canada, but has begun selling to US customers. Awake chocolate is available at retailers such as Winn Dixie, Hess, Barnes & Noble Campus, and HEB as well as online through Amazon.
