  • The “Depth Charge” has a whopping 445mg of caffeine in a large, while the Iced Americano  has 450mg. This could be dangerous for some!
  • Some of their iced tea beverages are surprisingly high in caffeine. Many would expect tea to have less caffeine than coffee but their large Classic Black Iced Tea has a whopping 290mg of caffeine and their Pomegranate Vanilla Iced Latte has 255mg. This could catch some folks off guard.
