Despite being the stimulant of choice for most people looking for a little pick-me-up, coffee is hardly the most ideal way to get caffeine into your system. You have to take the time to buy beans, crunch them up, and then pour the right amount of hot water over them in order to get a hot cup of wake-me-up. AeroShot’s Inhalable Energy shots attempted to simplify that whole process with an easy-to-ingest powder.
Essentially a capsule full of flavored, powdered caffeine that can be sucked into your mouth, this product was originally intended for sleepy office workers and late-night club-goers. Not only does this inhaler provide a big, calorie free energy boost equivalent to a large cup of coffee, it also packs in a bunch of B vitamins. Initially, the product was pretty popular. Despite the fact that the company came out years ago to a good deal of fanfare and with only the best of intentions, production of their product was stopped after the FDA wrote a warning letter taking issue with both the how and to whom the product was being marketed. Another point of contention was the fact that while it was called ‘Inhalable’ energy, the caffeine was ingested, not absorbed in the lungs. If you are feeling particularly foolhardy or thrill-seeking, however, you can still find some online for around $30. [Purchase]
